PostSubject: Mobile Redirect Ads   Tue Jun 07, 2016 6:15 pm

Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm getting this terrible redirect ad that wont let me view any member profiles. It happens every single time I try and it's quite a nuisance.

It's the same ad every time.



I press the back button to get away from the popup, then it goes to this.



It endlessly buzzes your phone if you don't have a good anti-virus/security application running, and then it's near impossible to get out of by pressing the back button so I have to close the tab.

The strange ad urged me to open my Comodo Security ap and do a virus/push ad scan (don't ever trust these ads to do it, they will put viruses on your phone) to check if it was my phone doing this, but it isn't. My phone is clean.

Is there any way you could remove this particular ad or remove redirect ads altogether? I don't mind popups or ad banners, but redirect ads are very annoying to deal with.

That Google page isn't even Google.com but I have noticed them once or twice myself and I don't know what causes them besides it is triggered by visiting the page on a mobile device

dang i got this message on my phone when i was going on a site to read something on a website. Safe to say that its not just on KITO but other sites as well. Just dont click "ok" and you'll be fine. Because if a warning message says "your phone has been hevily damaged by Four virus" or what not, then you shouldn't trust it unless if it says that on your phone's home screen, in which it should say something like "Your phone has been heavily damaged by four viruses". If it says that then ask an electronic or someone.
After getting that popup myself, i haven't experienced any problems with my phone, so that pop up is most likely fake.

As RedEye said, that google page isn't google.com, which is just screaming "IM FAKE! IM FAKE! IM FAKE!!!!!" and giving you more of a reason not to click the "repair fast now" or "ok" button

Well, i hope my message was necessary... and i hope my message helped as well ^^
