Re: Pop up message on iphone??

I've never heard of it before if I'm honest. But I'd imagine it's not an official site is it? Pop ups are ads which you can make money from useing your website however disgusting it is to have a site used that could be used by children for somthing innocent to get pornographic pop ups.

No reason iOS can't be a target iPhones are very popular but thankfully theyre pretty secure its unlikely you'd lose any banking info.

Turn on private browsing or there is a chrome app you can Download same as safari just a better pop up blocker. See if that helpsSmiley Happy

Just obviously don't click on any link just closeSmiley Happy

Liquid, I just googled "twitter search" and it was listed. I've used it before once or twice via a windows device.
I'm happy if that is the culprit and not anything sinister, as I just won't visit it again

I've just switched over to google chrome on my iphone after the incident on Safari.
What would private browsing gain me back on safari?

Private browsing auto deletes all history prevents cookies from being accepted and is generally anti tracking means you can't be a victim of targeted pop ups.

Well until the advertisers find a way around that too.
