Default Malware on mobile

Do the moderators of this forum ever use the mobile version? The constant pop ups and fake ďyou won an amazon gift cardĒ crap makes the site useless. Itís been going on so long the forum owner must be getting a cut from all of the malware installs from the unlucky folks that click the links.

Check your device for a Trojan or malware on your browser. What virus protection do you have?

The mobile is all I use and I donít see anything. I use Malwarebytes.

My phone would do the same thing. I now use "Brave" browser and have not had a single hijack since changing browsers

Avoiding this forum until this kind of thing is cleaned up.
This should not happen and itís not about the mobile browser itís about sloppy coding.
Not worth it. I donít have this issue on other forums.
This forum has had this issue on and off for years which tells me itís not being addressed properly, whether itís a lack of updates or some other security flaws.
Hopefully itís get worked out.
Bye until then.
