I am getting full-page popups on my phone. I was hoping I was just accidentally touching the other ads but there were a couple of times these last two days where I know I didn't, but an ad popped up.

Ok, sending it on to our provider. What was the popup about, do you remember the ad? In addition, do you have any software installed on your phone to protect you or report malware? Both Android and IoS are vulnerable to this.

Not that I know of. And they're different ads, not just one.

So we use the google ad service and they do not allow popups on any platform. This is why we need to know the ad, so we can report it and also identify if it's even running as part of the service we use. :) Please note the ads you see and I will make sure each one is reported. So far I have no seen any popups on my iphone.

and I just got one. "Oh My Gut" is the title. Screenshotting and sending it on. It IS a google ad so sorry about this, we'll get to the bottom of it.

I just noticed the popups are gone from the phone (thanks tolakram!).

Sometimes it takes me a little while to notice things. :oops:
