    I would recommend Cloudflare’s new DNS over Google or OpenDNS, they have a much stricter stance towards privacy (it is also allegedly faster):

    Chrome mobile could be part of the problem, too. It has its own pop up blocker, but doesn't allow for third party adblock extensions. It obviously does not work with these popups, but I'm too lazy to use anything but Chrome. :oops: Since this is the only site I tend to get them with, I would just rather complain.

    Maybe you could trade it for one of those Google home bugging devices that were being given away or an Alexa?

    Funny thing that I used to constantly get those on Safari, but since I switched to Chrome, not a one.

    Load the TDPRI App on your phone and stop using the safari browser to get to TDPRI

    That has absolutely nothing to do with this. It's rogue ads being served by Google.

    Cannot even click OK when there is just a Close button.

    I don’t understand why you’re not already doing this.

    Mine always starts making a bunch of noise even though my phone is on silent. Makes it impossible to come here while I'm at work.

    What's the tdpri app? Is it just that tapatalk app? I like the format of the browser version of the site better. Never liked tapatalk.

    I don't know what the OP is saying exactly, but this is a phone problem, not a TDPRI problem.
    I solved it completely by using the Brave browser on my phone. Hasn't happened since.

    Thanks, I'm going to give that one a try.

    I'm using Safari on my iPhone, my iPad and my Mac, and I never get these popups. I make sure my routers and my devices all use secure DNS servers.

    This has been discussed at length before. If it were JUST Google serving up bad ads, it would happen to all TDPRI users. Yet there are people here using stock installations of Safari (such as myself) who have never had one of these pop-ups. That suggests that the interception is happening between the browser and the server.

    Encrypting all the traffic and using a secure DNS server are important security steps to take. We have no control over the former, but we can definitely do the latter.

    I make sure my routers are using secure DNS servers, and I don't have this issue.

    Once again, it has absolutely nothing to do with any kind of browser hijack or router security. It is people gaming Google ads to do redirects. You can buy this service from blackhatters.

    Black hatters typically don't target Safari and the supported scripting is slightly different in it. This means a redirect script that works in Chrome won't work in Safari. Chrome is rapidly becoming like Internet Explorer was in the early 00's, the primary target of blackhat scripters.

    Something that would help is getting tdpri switched over to HTTPS.

    Walmart. Isn't that who is testing and giving away the fundraiser guitars? I think that was your winner notification.

    Adblocker is your friend.

    Or a less common browser like Duck Duck Go or something like that.
