Getting redirected to a spam page on mobile

Wondering if it's just me, or if others are experiencing this when accessing the forum on mobile. It seems like every time I'm on here, I eventually get kicked off and onto a spam page that says something about at&t and congratulations you won blah blah blah. Only happens on this site, only on mobile. 🤷

I get that too often that’s why I haven’t been on lately. I was getting frustrated!

Thanks for letting us know! I'll let the Forum's Admins know so that they can look into it. I use a laptop and it's not happened to me.

Thank you for letting us know.
I use a phone and chose to always be logged in. So I haven't had any problems.

The only time I log out is when I clean my history. Problem occurs if I deleted history before logging out.

Next time anyone gets redirected to that spam page, I want you to copy the url of that page and post it here. Also, let me know what kind of mobile device you were on when it happened.

To explain what's happening, we get our ads from several Ad Services who have a wide variety of ad types available. We choose the ad types we want and the service puts them in place, but that part is entirely done by bots, who choose the ads based off things like cookies, guesses at the users demographic, geographic location, etc. Sometimes the bots choose the wrong ad type and serve it up to you (they aren't super smart bots), and when that happens we put a block in place to stop that ad from being served again. Get me the link, and I can put that block in place

Apparently speaking out loud scared the spam away, I haven't gotten it since but will update if I do.
