We've recieved a complaint from a forum user that on mobile they've been getting sketchy ads, and redirecting ones so please be cautious when using mobile devices!

Here are some links that may be of help for the mobile-users!

Adding on that the mobile version of this site sucks and you really shouldn't be using mobile unless you really have to, but if you really have to, be sure to use the "classic version." Clicking that option will make the forum look how it looks on desktop, and should be somewhat easier to navigate.

Regarding adblocking on Android, the Adblock Plus and other similar apps don't work unless you root your device, and rooting your device may void your phone's warranty. Some of Sammie's links teach you how to root your device if you really want to do that.

There's an Adblock browser that I haven't tried yet (the last link that Sammie posted), which might do the trick, so maybe check that out and let me know how it is.

Just chiming in that I get some hella sketchy redirect ads on here when I was using FireFox for the masquerade game. I don't have ABP on FF, but I do on Chrome so never see it.

Ah, thank you for the report Kotakia!

Probably best for everyone to get adblock if they can, then, please!
