(annoying) PopUps

Post by siN on Fri Sep 02, 2016 2:52 pm

Hello, recently I've been getting some pretty annoying ads, whenever I check a new topic/post 9/10 of those I get popups, this recently started and I dunno if it is a virus or it's a problem of the forum. This only happens when I use my phone to check this specific forum.

One of the links of the popups:

Any help please (to disable the popups/ads)?

Same here when using phone Sad


Also I think there should be a new section to discuss that kind of topics. Maybe called "General Disccusions"

Use adblocker/adaway. If that didn't work, reset your browser's settings.

So basically, it's a problem in the forum/the forum host.

Get Adblock and don't use your phone for browsing it was made for calls only (you're lucky to even have messages on it)
Or just use this...

You can also check out few different browsers for Android system (not those which are default). And of course like was said - any good recent adblocker.

I've Chrome as a basic on my phone, but also downloaded that unique Explorer, Firefox and Opera. None of them succeeded.

I'm using a Dolphin browser and I have no ads without installing any adblocker. ;o

I think that these ads are created by the hoster of the forum (forumotions) to finance their servers. And if I remember well, if we do not buy the PRO edition of forumotion, advertisements won't be removed.
