Keep getting redirects to dodgy web pages

On android phone and browsing pro race and keep getting redirected to 'your phone has a virus' or 'you have won an Iphone' or get 500 quid of tesco vouchers for free' webpages. Are your servers infected?

    Ditto
    Rule #5 // Harden The censored Up.
    Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.
    Rule #12 // The correct number of bikes to own is n+1.
    Rule #42 // A bike race shall never be preceded with a swim and/or followed by a run.

    Still doing it. Making the forum unusable.
  • Any URLs from the redirect you can get would be useful, as well as device and browser.

    I had an app redirect on iPhone 6s/Chrome yesterday and have reported to our ad ops team.

    Any further info would be useful.

    Thanks!

    I've had this too. Doesn't happen all the time but quite disconcerting when it does. The redirected page won't let you exit or go back so you have to close that particular window to get out of it.
