I got the same problem. It started about 3 to 4 days ago. When I click on a thread sometimes a popup ad shows up in a new tab and it's always one of those "oh you won something" fake ads.

Redirect blocked popups at the bottom of chrome mobile.

Often times I'll get a whole bunch of them at once and the message pops up in rapid fire speed. Same type of domain as the others.

Redirects are back. Chrome mobile.

Luckily it's doing a great job of blocking them, so kudos on whatever you guys upgraded in Era 2.0. I remember it never blocking them up until recently.

Got another! Change your damn ad server.

Edited my response because this probably has nothing to do with your QA. Someone is ignoring this thread.

Often get this malware redirect "Sweetie please click on the blue allow button". Annoying. Why is this site allowing malware? And what is being done to remove it?

I am also getting reports of blocked popups and redirects on Android / Chrome. I am glad that Chrome is catching these, but please try to fix this.

...I wonder if you could train an AI to identify bad URLs. They seem to have significantly more random components to the base domain than most legit sites (random strings of letters and numbers).

Just had my whole browser taken over by constant and redirects to a neverending stream of "click-on.me" websites, such as xghysi6546.click-on.me" with Android saying it wanted to take over my browser - allow/block.

I took a bunch of screenshots. Absolutely ridiculous. Never seen a "legit" website with so many scummy adverts & redirects.

Android Pie.

I'm getting redirect ads too. Some of them pornographic and it happened while I was at work.

That's not acceptable...please deal with this when you guys have a chance...

I got a redirect on the Etcetera board index on mobile while trying to enter a thread. No idea what the ad was that did it.

Getting "Spirit" ads on mobile that tail up half the screen and ate impossible to dismiss.

Sorry for any typos in this message,, I literally can't see the reply box.

It really sucks to see this thread totally ignored and ResetEra go to absolute shit on mobile.

Had this pop up over the last few days on Android. It's redirected me a couple times, but the browser caught it this time for whatever reason.

Looks like I'm back for my weekly penance

Ok everyone, click this link to make sure Era folks get paid. Apparently they can't afford ads that don't cause cancer, so we all need to suffer this shit for the greater good.

Seriously, click the link. It's what Era wants. I don't get a choice, but if you do, you better click it. They're just worried about me and my virus infected phone. And all of your virus infected phones, which you'll confirm by clicking the link below.

Obviously don't click the link

I've sent an email to our partners about the uptick in recent reports and they are investigating.

From what I understand the first few months of the year tend to be particularly challenging with this stuff, and unfortunately that's going to be true across the internet. I do apologize for any inconveniences.
