    Hello! After i was on Android Central forums, the following URL: forums.androidcentral.com become the invalid URL. The URL was incorrect and was: claimyourprizes16.life/?u=3w8p605&o=pn1kfzq (see image #1) which means it redirect me to a spamming gift page. One spamming gift page (see image #2) say me i got a prize from Bouygues Telecom and the other spamming gift page (see image #3) was just a Google gift. I got a Samsung Galaxy S6 in September 2020. Can you please remove those spamming sites?

    I moved this from the S6 forum to the Site Feedback forum.

    Were you using one of the Android Central apps, or were you on the forum website in your browser?

    It's not clear if this was directly due to being on the forums, or if there might have been something else you did that caused this. Go to Settings>Apps, select your browser, then clear its app cache/data. For good measure, go to the browser's settings and clear its browsing history and cookies "from the beginning of time." Now see if the problem persists.

    I am using the Android Central in Google Chrome 85. The issue is that the Android Central forums original URL is: forums.androidcentral.com but the URL was edited and become incorrect, the invalid URL was: claimyourprizes16.life/?u=3w8p605&o=pn1kfzq

    If i download an Antivirus, this may solve the problem?

    Antivirus apps typically do nothing about that.

    Sorry, but I'm not entirely clear on what's happening. You're saying that you type "forums.androidcentral.com" in the URL bar, and it redirects you to that site?

    Yeah really. The following URL: claimyourprizes16.life/?u=3w8p605&o=pn1kfzq redirect the user to a spamming gift page.

    you have another thread about the same issue with another browser and another site. so it is not this site. sounds like you installed something that had ads. might want to uninstall anything you install right before the problems started.

    Oh yeah, I thought this sounded familiar. My recommendation still stands to clear the browser's app cache/data and also to clear the browser history and cookies from the beginning of time. Have you already tried that? You didn't mention if you did or not.
