Spammy Ads and Redirects now on the forum?

So I downloaded the Tapatalk app for using the forum with my phone. Now I often get hijacked/redirected to the App Store when I'm using it. Thanks alot Google, Ad Choices or whoever the heck is doing it!

It's a serious problem all over the mobile web. I won't be using Tapatalk and the phone for the forum anymore.

Disabling java makes the adds go away.

I have been using Tapatalk on a few forums for years now, and have never had this issue, so I have no advise on what to do to eliminate it.

This is not likley related to tapatalk and is a knwo issue that google is working on : https://productforums.google.com/for...26-50-false%5D

Basically they sell ad space and screen ads, but then after the fact, the advertisers replace good ads with ads that are malicious and hijack browsers.

BTW one of the link you initially posted was serving some malware and so I removed it from the post so folks wouldn't accidentally click.

Yes, I should have been more clear. I'm fully aware that this is not a Tapatalk issue. I downloaded Tapatalk so that I could use the phone for the forum. Its an iphone5 and the regular site is too cumbersome for me to use on the phone. I had been waiting for Tapatalk so that I could use the phone on the forum.

It isn't even a Google issue-- at least directly.
