    Spam redirect

    Recently, I’ve been redirected to spam sites on occasion when accessing the forum through my browser in iOS. A bit of googling suggests that such redirects are likely an issue with the site. Just wanted to bring this to TGR’s attention.

    What!?!? You mean TGR hasn't entered into a partnership with alibaba? I've been tricked!

    Yeah and the only way to stop it is to close the tab and open a new one

    +1 in chrome on Android and only on tgr's site also.

    I ran malwarebytes and it came up empty. Thought my phone may have caught the herp.

    I did some googling on “spam redirect safari iphone”. One of the suggestions was to install an ad blocker. For some reason the ad blocker I was previously using was not on my phone anymore. So I installed a new one, and so far the problem has disappeared.

    do you guys have any examples of the websites you have been redirected to when this happens? (or any you’ll admit to &#129315

    Saw PG mention alibaba but not sure if a joke or not.
    Also feel free to pm but trying to get some examples for tgr devs so they can fix.
    Thanks

    The sites I was redirected didn’t include alibaba. I don’t recall the specific site names but they all wanted me to click on something, which I refused to do. I just closed the window instead.

    If I feel adventurous, I might disable the ad blocker to get more details, but don’t have the energy right now.

    Yeah, me too: yifymovies.cam

    I’ve had two redirects since enabling the ad blocker, so that obviously wasn’t a complete cure, although it does seem like the redirects are less often than before it was enabled.

    Killer deal for free downloads on some movies about this guy who skis on a snowboard that comes apart in two pieces, though, so that's kinda nice at least.
