Re-directing to other sites?

In the past week or so Iíve been getting redirected to some other sites with a pop-up about having won some amazon card or something. Is anyone else getting this? On my iPhone itís happened whether viewing the mobile or full site and has happened when using both safari or through the gmail app (when accessing the site through an email notification of a new post) and has also been happening on my iPad as well.

I've been seeing the same thing, it's annoying. Also, on some forums, when I try to use the search feature it takes me to a totally different site.

I get the same thing, but when browsing using private mode or incognito mode even on the phone it helps so much.

I've been getting pop ups for years (or at least seems like it), while using the mobile app. It's always telling me how I've won something or, usually, "oh no! your device is infected" blah blah.

I too am getting the same. Pain in the axx. I’ve read there are ways to stop it but none have worked for me.

Hey guys,

I'll try to get them cleaned up as soon as possible as they are all over internet not just Evom. Try logging out, clear your cookies and cache (Ctrl F5 in Windows) then log back in to Evom. I believe they are being served up from hacked ads, but the techs will have to determine. Sorry.

Yes, hacked ads is typically the source for strange behavior.

I use Linux, with Noscript (to disable unwanted javascripts), ublock origin (for obvious reasons) and never see any hacked adds, or unwanted messages on any site for that matter. This also provides a much safer and enjoyable internet experience.

I can't use this site through the mobile app. Every page ends up taking me to a "you have a virus" page. I gave up and now only log in from home, on my lap top.

I haven't yet tried "view desktop site".
