What’s up guys? I keep having issues with my iPhone, particularly on this site, but also on others. I get redirected to some sort of “Congratulations iPhone user, you just won an amazon gift card” kind of nonsense.

But it’s a different “website” every time. I keep blocking those websites, but can’t seem to figure out the root cause of this. I even reset safari. I’m pretty much out of options. Granted, technology is a skill set I do not possess. I will fully admit that. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this or just kill the phone with fire?

Happens to me on my iPad too. I cleared browser history and any data cached by the browser and it seems to have stopped.

Dunno if you can do that on an iPhone.

Install Firefox and use it instead of Safari.
Under add-ons enable AdBlock

Have had the same issue for a few months, and it seems to be unique to SB. I figured it was a site specific issue that the admins here would fix

It's a problem caused by the ads, you block them and the problem goes away. This site is worse than most others are.

Yep, very bad here. Adblock is practically a requirement here imo.

I think you’re right, had the same issue pop up on a different browser with this site. How does one disable the ads here?

Go to add-ons in settings on Firefox. Enable AdBlock.
