    Is there a way to report the spam ad? Maybe someone can take a look at it and have ads like that removed from the site.

    pop ups are forms of online advertising on the world wide web. A pop up is a graphical user Interface that suddently appears on the visual display.
    There are some step to block pop ups in chrome:-
    1.Select Settings from the Chrome menu.
    2.Typing in Popups
    3.Click the Content Settings button.
    4.Click Pop-ups.
    5.Toggle the Pop-ups option to Blocked or delete exceptions.

    We need to Scan of Malware and also Uninstall Odd Software
    These are the PC/Mac directions, on Mobile Chrome it's slightly different, instead of Content Settings, its called Site Settings.

    I have pop ups blocked but it still got through anyways.

    I hate to say it but that would never have happened on my Windows Phone.

    Not just for this site, though. For all sites where there are ads that should be okay, but clicking them brings more ads that inject malware / scamware ads into them.

    Just wanted to post my own screenshot.

    I originally thought that maybe I had accidentally clicked an ad, but this time, I was literally reading a post and doing nothing and it loaded.

    It didn't open a separate tab; it simply took over my screen.

    I have been getting these on this Mobile Nations site as well. I understand the need for ads to pay the bills, but this pretty much made my Pixel XL unusable. This is coming from browsing these forums. I cleared all my Chrome history on my Pixel XL, including stored passwords...everything. Browsed a lot of sites and was free of this crap saying my phone was 28.1% damaged. I go back to the Mobile Nations forums, log in, and not 30 seconds go by before my phone is completely hijacked again. Had to delete all browser data again, and using this site on my PC to post this. For now, I can't go to your site with my phone. Your own advertisers are pulling this crap on you, driving people away from your site. And yes, these come on the screen with popups blocked. You can't hit the back button either to get rid of it. The only way I found is to add another tab, then close the infected tab. This is only temporary as it will pop up on the new tab within a few seconds.

    We are looking into this and have several solutions in place the catch "bad ads", but they always find ways around the tools. Argh!

    Glad to know that I'm not the only one seeing this type of hi-jack. Sad to have to stop visiting AC for fear of a hi-jack.
