I seem to be getting a redirect to click to win an iPad etc.
Using safari on an iPhone.
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.
I only ever use th HBF on iPhone and not had any pop ups.
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 (18.104.22.168 / 22.214.171.124) 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.
If it happens again I’ll get a screenshot. On different Wi-fi today as I’m at graft.
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.
Use tapatalk instead of the mobile site. Its free and easy.
Just send them your Bank details, your Mothers' maiden name, the name of your first school and your PIN to get the money!
Separate names with a comma.
