You can take steps to protect your mobile device. There aren't a lot of options available, but you can load malwarebytes on your mobile device. At least it will help as I've always protected the computer as the last line of defense.

Also go to airplane mode on your device then go to apps and find the one for this site. Clear the cache there.
Then turn off your device. Turn on, turn off airplane mode, and try the Site again.
Also, If you see one and can find a link and give it to me here, I can try to block it.

Happened to me multiple times last evening when I tried to read posts about bentonite.

I have this too but I read that it was associated with an app I may have downloaded. I deleted the most recent app that i think corresponded to when this started happening and it went away. So if there was some free app you downloaded, it may be causing this problem.

I have not downloaded any apps in months, if not longer.

Thanks for working this. I’ve been spam free for two weeks now. I greatly limited my coming here because of the spam, so it’s nice to be back more.

Still an issue even after following the above suggestions. Amazon pop ups. It's frustrating.

Can you get the url address from the top bar next time it happens and post it here? That will allow me to get that one blocked. I block and a new one will pop up soon after. Still working on a way for those not to get through.

Used to only get it if I was using Safari in iOS. It's now happening in Safari for Mac too. I don't have a URL - as soon as I see it start to happen, I shut down Safari. I don't like being redirected into unfamiliar territory.
