    I seem to be getting a redirect to click to win an iPad etc.

    Using safari on an iPhone.

    Anyone else?

    This was a major problem a year or so ago, can't remember what the fix was now. Perhaps it went away when I changed from an iPhone

    I occasionally use my iPhone - but so far not a problem!

    Could you add a screenshot as I don't use any apple gear and I am not sure Angie does, thanks.

    Are you connected via WiFi?

    I had this issue a while back and it turned out someone had changed the DNS Server settings so that it pointed somewhere dubious. That meant when you type in a website, the dodgy DNS was redirecting me elsewhere.

    I updated my router's firmware and changed so it pointed to Google's public DNS (8.8.8.8 / 8.8.4.4) and not had the problem again. You might just be able to change it to auto.

    Might not be your issue but it's a relatively safe change to make to your router settings.

    I got the same yesterday on IPad. Browsing hbf and got a similar pop up.
    I’ve had these on EBay using my laptop, but never before on my IPad.
    I clicked the back button on the safari browser and it went back to hbf.

    Just had this again on IPad.
    Pressed back up on my browser and it goes.

    I have had this on here also (only on mobile phone).
    Ebay is the worst for me at the moment on mobile, the only way i can get rid is to request a desktop site.
