Same here, I was on last night. I was only able to post once before I kept getting the same message on my phone. I eventually gave up b/c it was too much of an interference.

Re: Pop up

Just cleared out safari, we will see! On iPhone, I use google as a browser. Had thought I was free of it this morning, but as soon as I opened this thread, it came back!
I even tried to satisfy it with information, but it directed me to a fake amazon site to claim my prize

—Just got hit again! On iPad/safari!
Am back using the google browser on the same iPad.

Re: Pop up

Getting hit again in safari(iPad), just switched to the google browser. When I went to page one of this post, the pop up hit me! I wonder if it is doing imaginary recognition!
From what I am reading, most likely, this malware is imbedded in an ad server! Since these robots use page content, certain pages may be prone to the pop up!

Re: Pop up

I used to use firefox till quantum now I use opera, I also use adblock plus, (free add on for both) and I've never seen that popup. Also adblock plus blocks youtube ads and etc.

https://adblockplus.org

I've been using it for years, I highly recommend.

Re: Pop up

Apple’s recommendation is to disable Java scripting, clear safari, and then stay away from the compromised site!

Re: Pop up

Very frustrating! Only way I can use safari on this site is to keep JavaScript off!
My research points to compromised ads being the source of this pop up!

Re: Pop up

Wow, this issue is making the forum unusable on iPhone. I"m not sure its anything you all can do. As I understand it, it's a pervasive issue on on many apple devices on many websites. I get it occasionally on Facebook when I click on articles to read.
