    I cant even get to this site on my iPhone it redirects me to a advertisers page immediately as soon as I open the website on my phone. Been this way for a few days.

    I'll forward your concern to our developers.

    My iPhone does not seem to have the same behavior.

    No issues like this on any device of mine. What about their location...could it be in certain locales?

    Does clearing cache of safari work for you?

    And cleaning the cache doesn't seem to work. Disabling cookies tends to works but renders this site and many others near nonoperational. This has been a persistent problem for some time now on these forums.

    Here's what it looks like in action. This was from early this morning.

    First only allows you to click close:

    As soon as you clock close it sends you to the "amazon giveaway" or similar BS screen:

    I remember my default ISP's DNS were serving some ads like those on some sites after switching to Google DNS those pesky ads went away.

    Yep same here exactly. Only on iOS devices. I did clear and clean all settings in safari on my new iphonex and my ipad. Does the same thing., Weird thing is, out of the 3-40 webpages I frequent a day on my iphone this website is the ONLY one that does this. My attendance here is now limited to once or twice a week when im on a computer if I think about it. I literally cant make it here on my phone.

    Exactly. It is ONLY this site that does it on Safari among the numerous sites I visit daily including many ad hoc sites.

    I cleaned and reset my settings
    Tried different DNS
    Even factory restored my devices with new setup not backup restore.

    Problem always comes back and was consistent on my old ipad pro and iphone 7 plus and is just the same on my iphone X and new ipad pro 12.9.

    There's no consistency to the problem either. Sometimes I can go decent stretches (15-20 minutes) and other times it is every minute or two.
