    Any advice out there, as to how to get rid of this Facebook Walmart web site hijack. I can never get on this site anymore.
    Should I not use my iPhone, make any settings changes. Any suggestions out there would be appreciated.
    thanks folks

    It's a iphone only malware. You've picked up. Use a computer and you'll never see it. But it will stay stuck on your iphone for a while.

    You can try clearing the data cache for Safari and that sometimes works with a reboot of the phone after deleting the cache.

    Here's a video:

    Thanks. I just tried the cache clear. Didn't work. I am having better luck using chrome as my iPhone browser, at least right now. Perhaps that might help others. It's a real problem.
    I will try the safari clearand reboot again.
    Is there anything the admins can do about this.
    Thx

    I was getting it at the strat site but never here. I became a supporter of the site (no ads), cleared my cache, did hard restart of my iPhone, and have not seen it again.

    Unfortunately not. You can use the App rather than the browser. Or a desktop computer.

    Try a hard reset by holding down the home button and power button together until it reboots.
