    My friend is having an issue with his iPhone, but I don't understand the problem.

    "So I have this problem with Safari on my phone. Whenever I try to google anything before it googles it, it redirects to accounts.youtube and loads the page once but doesn't display anything. Then it does the same thing with .blogger and one other login thing. My cousin's email was hacked and she sent me a google doc to open which I tried to multiple times but I did change my password. I would Google it myself but idk much about this and it's a pain because it adds like a minute to googling anything. Then even if I want to go to image results it does it."

    "it's only from my phone. My computer works fine. Oh and I did log out of my google account on my phone and it didn't change anything"

    He said that direct urls work well.

    Does anyone understand what is happening.

    Problem Solved

    I asked him to clear his History and Website Data in the Settings app. Settings>Safari>Clear History and Website Data. It was that simple. :)
