Spam redirect from TF mobile

Maybe this has already been addressed because it has been happening for several weeks now, but...

Using Google Chrome in my iPhone, I am CONSTANTLY redirected to a site that offers things like free amazon gift cards, iPhones, etc. It has a pop up and then takes me away from TF.

It gets to the point where I can click more than once or twice without getting redirected, but then other times I can browse for a while with no issue.

I assumed it was an issue with my phone (idk maybe too much porn), but it only happens with TF, Iíve read about other users having the same issue, and when I googled it, it tells me that itís typically an issue with the website.


Is this actually a TF issue? Is it already being or could it be addressed?

Thanks for any info!

How should you be? You should be like a rocky promontory against which the restless surf continuously pounds.
It stands fast while the churning sea is lulled to sleep at its feet. I hear you say,
"How unlucky that this should happen to me."
But not at all.
Perhaps say instead how lucky I am that I am not broken by what has happened,
and I am not afraid of what is about to happen.

I understand your frustration as I was there
I’ve got an Iphone and I started using AdBlock because of this. It’s been more of a year so I don’t know if it was fixed sometime but reading your post and other previous ones I guess it didn’t.

Yes It only happen with TF. I surf 99,99% of web pages in Safari and only use AdBlock for TF

Re: Spam redirect from TF mobile

Hi there,

The next time you see these pop-ups, grab us the link and we'll have it blocked.
Also, list the device/browser you were using as well.

Cheers,

Ed

Google Chrome on iPhone 7 Plus. Redirected me to:

Sorry I didnít see your answer until now. It still happens A LOT, but Iíve learned that if I stop the TF page from loading before itís completely loaded, it typically wonít redirect. Not a good solution but it has allowed me to ignore it.
