iPad Pop up

Speypages (and another Vscope fishing site) are getting hijacked by junk pop-ups. Such as attached, with various names. There is no way to close the pop up, must close entire browser and start over.

iPad Pro
iOS 11.2.1 (current)
Safari
Pop up blocker on
Cookies off or on

That isn't a problem with the website, it's a problem on your end, probably a third-party Safari plugin/adblock issue.

Step 1 - Try a different browser.

Step 2 - Create a new iOS user account and try it in that account.

I use the classic version only and have never had a pop up ad unless JonT has used my account and then I get all kinds of unsavory things if I donít hose down and wash my computer thoroughly

I thought you were into all those questionable snippets... That was a risky prank... I hope the feds don't knock down your door.

Then backup your essential iPad data with iTunes, erase and restore from backup.

you don't need to format your ipad or restart anything. The ad doesn't do anything unless you actually input any information.

please report the ad URL when this happens again.

Reported - thank you. Apologies for the inconvenience - these ads are not placed by us but we remove these as we encounter them.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation on this.

Yup! Blocked them on my iPad and now I am getting another address for the same site.

Here it is under a different address.

Amazon.com - Congratulations!!

A bad day of fishing is always better than a good day at work.
