Highjacked pages

Are the redirects you’re getting only happening in the browser, or in other apps too (like Twitter, FB, etc.)?

I have an Apple laptop, and the redirects only occur on this site. When it happens, it cycles quickly through 3-4 urls before landing on an ad site.

I don't have a laptop or an iPad but I haven't been able to log in from my iPhone in months. No issues with my home computer (Mac) and my work computer (PC). I still don't understand how my login info could be valid on a computer but invalid on a phone, and it's annoying that none of these problems that have recently cropped up for many different people have still not been addressed.

I think it has to do with differences in browser's security settings, anti virus programs, that kind of thing. Its the ads, I don't think it will ever be fully addressed.

TLDR: Try an alternate browser/app on IOS mobile devices

No issues on my Android when I use Chrome or the Galaxy browser. However; I did notice a lot more ad's at the bottom.

I think this may be more of an Apple IPhone/Ipad issue. I would try clearing the cache on Safari on a mobile device and on a mac/computer.

If you have an alternate browser try to see if you can use the desktop version of it instead of using Safari.

Safari doesn't have an option built-in for displaying the desktop version of a website. Since Apple doesn't support the software used by computers to display a website, its native browser on the iPhone displays an alternate, compatible website. Safari is designed to show the mobile versions so that all websites are displayed in the most functional, attractive way possible on your iPhone.

If you want to view a desktop version of a browser, use an app from iTunes. Alternate browsers send information indicating that they're operating on a normal computer, not a phone or tablet. The website responds by displaying the desktop version of the page on your iPhone. Once you've downloaded the app, adjust the settings so that desktop mode is enabled.

The browser interface is one major thing to consider when selecting an alternate browser. Look at the images displayed on the browser's listing on the App Store to see what the browser looks like. Browsers with a large toolbar may obscure your view of certain websites, while others may not offer buttons that you want to use. vBrowse, Mercury Browser and iCab Mobile can all toggle between desktop and mobile browser view on the iPhone.

Even with an alternate app, not every Web page will work as it would on a desktop computer. Not only does the iPhone have different software than a desktop computer, but it also has different inputs. Some of the inputs, graphics, videos and other aspects of the website might not work on the iPhone, no matter what app you use.

This article talks about force quitting the app, https://www.tomsguide.com/us/how-to-...view-5151.html

turn off a feature inside Safari known as Prevent cross-site tracking.

Just wondering if paid subscribers are experiencing this problem? The paid membership options say, "less advertising". That tells me that there is some level of advertising with paid membership.

When I use my Windows laptop, I use browsers with add-on ad blockers, They work great to prevent invasive ads and pop-ups. I have to admit that my Ipad has had problems with Safari (not with the Dolfin browser). I'm currently changing some settings for Safari, but may just quit using that browser and add the Chrome browser as an alternative.
