Keep getting redirects on mobile for the last few days now. Please figure this out, it's so annoying. Using chrome mobile if that matters.

Apologies for the inconveniences, the ad industry does get kind of crazy between now and the end of the year.

I've notified our partners about the new redirect reports.

Getting a browser hijack/redirect about being a "loyal Google user" on mobile Chrome. Got it twice in a period of less than a minute after closing and reloading Era.

Information
Thanks for the reports. Seems like a bad outbreak for US mobile users today. I'll reach out to the ad agency.

Hey the ads on this site are broken as fuck again.

Getting the normal, browser hijacking full screen re-direct to extravagantinwardness.com.

Your ad provider sucks and is a malicious entity.

I'm honestly surprised I was able to finish this post with how aggressive the redirects have been. I can barely read the forum on mobile now.

So many FanDuel ads. I can't browse this site on mobile anymore. I've also lost so much writing I've done on posts

I get these "Congratulations! You won!" full screen hijacks that impersonate themselves as a legitimate offer from Google (although I have a hunch that they changed the colors on the Google logo) on mobile. The url contains references to company id 4d0epva5, like user loltna reported a few posts ago. Dunno if that's a hash for era itself in the ad provider or an id for someone else.

I'm also getting a ton of redirects these last couple days. Most of the time it's that 'extravagantinwardness .club' website again.

Using a Galaxy S7 Edge with Chrome.
