    I have this strange Pop up, but I have no pirated garbage on my phone. What could cause this?

    Same here, when I get them the only way out is to exit close and reopen Safari, or click on ok and it will open another webpage in the background that I simply close after hitting okay, doesn't seem to be anything related to apps or tweaks but some websites themselves

    Even happens on my old iPhone 5 that isn't jailbroken. I can't even go on one of my sites using Safari anymore cuz it keeps redirecting me to a porn page that wants me to enter my phone number.

    Guys just an FYI. This crap has been happening on iOS as well as Android. I'm getting redirects on my iPad to the app store and on my Nexus 4, I either get redirects to the Google play store or a survey box takes over my screen.

    I just turn off Javascript and that takes care of it.

    It's an ad redirect. Clearing your cookies and Internet cache and force closing Safari should fix it.

    Have you guys tried downloading Untrusted Hosts Blocker from Cydia?

    Maybe ask CraveOnline? LOL

    In all seriousness, get an adblocker like untrusted hosts blocker. Does some annoying things, but sure gets rid of this sort of issue.

    Funny story, I live in San Francisco... my friend left his phone on a table by the water while eating on a patio, and a sea gull flew over and went at just the right time, it went into the ear piece and no level of cleaning got the sound to come out of the earpiece again... so he had it replaced (yes, they covered it)... he was just telling me the story last night, and I am laughing... cause both pirate crap and seagull crap can destroy iPhone. Wow, it's 5 am here and I'm giggling already thinking about the story.
