Default Safari redirect

Anybody have any ideas how to stop this? I only seem to get it while browsing THT. I've already wiped my iPad and am still getting it.

Man, sounds like you got lucky to me.

I'd just keep logging on to THT and keep getting all those $1000 Visa cards.

You must be rich, who in the hell complains about getting free $1000 Visa gift cards?

F'in 1%er's.

That's what I've been doing. I've got a whole mountain of them. I almost have enough to order my Freeman. Hopefully he can start building before swiping all the cards.

Access safari through a link from your email then close all other windows is how I got around it. Aggravating as all hell

I get them too and only on THT. I use chrome for my browser. It's always "Chrome Urgent Update, Suddenlink survey and several cleaner deals. Why only on THT?

I only get them on this site as well. I posted about it in the site issues section and was told it was my computer...... I browse multiple forums at the same time and NEVER got them on any other forums or sites.

Same here. THT only.
It would appear Internet Brands allows this in order to "enhance revenues".
Between these ads and all the BS lately with phantom banning/Cloudfare and the site just being inaccessible I'm about ready to hang it up.
It was a great site while it lasted but definitely not what it used to be.
All about monetizing it now.

This is fairly common. It is a rogue ad that is served through the ad network exchanges. They're a huge pain to track down and find what the source is.

Get an ad blocker for your phone and you'll not have to deal with it again.

When you see that, the best way to kill it is hit your home buton, then double tap to bring up the running applications and kill the browser. Open the browser back up, and before the page that you were on loads kill the tab.

I get that damn page every time I visit the Chicago Tribune sports page. All over the place. I just won't visit there.

I think it's an IB thing.
I get it here and Rennlist (Porsche site, IB owned).
Annoying....

Thanks guys. Glad it's not my iPad. It's been making my nuts. Funny thing, since I posted this thread, it's never happened again.

It is definitely an IB thing-- making a few pennies. I am not a posting whore, having only 2000 posts in 10 years, but this redirect thing has me ready to leave.
