I知 having this problem also. Only on this site and only if I知 logged in. I知 using a month old iPad Pro. It痴 weird that if I知 not logged in it doesn稚 happen.

Its an ad from google telling me I won a phone.

Same here, but I just deal with it. It's annoying, because someone's it will happen multiple times while reading through 1 page on a thread. I get pop ups about winning a phone and fake ads about phone being infected (usually looks like a Google page), it's clean. I can't back out of the page, browser won't allow it, so I close the window and start over

Edit: galaxy s7 active running Android 7.0

That's interesting. My popup blocker is working to block those adds, but I still have to close my browser to get back to where I can read threads again.

I find it interesting that hackers basically want a free life by sponging off of other people, but to do that they have to basically become experts in modern tech. With the same education they could actually earn money legitimately.

I have received those fake pop ups as well, but NEVER while on this site. Usually only get those if reading RT or something a lil sketchy anyways.

It's not a popup though. Cell phone only, the browser completely redirects to the ad, not in a new window. And it wont allow me to just hit back page (can click the button, just refreshes screen, won't go back to skoolie.net), so have to close that tab and open new page


Edit:: I don't think the blame is on skoolie.net as I never once have an issue on my pc. Maybe just something weird when viewing on some mobile browsers, I don't know.

I think this stuff rides in on the coattails of advertising. How well does an adblocker work on this site, and has anyone who has one installed noticed the behavior?

I don't view this site on my phone, either as a webpage or via Tapatalk. As it happens I use Windows at work and Ubuntu at home. I'm familiar with what's being discussed here, but I've only ever seen it on my phone.

i think it is just advertisements. looking over last few times it happened, ive seen amazon adds, as well as youve won a prize type stuff, not just virus warnings. weird that it wont let you hit back and go back to skoolie.net though, at least on my phone.

Everything is flowing smoothly here. I use Firefox or Chrome and run Adblock Plus on both. I see no pop ups. I'm also on a Linux laptop that I put together.
