    Issue: iOS 9 Safari continues to open what appear to be malicious websites (and at the very least, unwanted websites). Websites are the following (do not click on these links):
    "bytemobile(dot)com", "apple-gifts(dot)com", ",mobilerewardzone(dot)space". This is occurring on 3 iOS 9 devices.

    Unsuccessful steps taken thus far:
    -force quitting
    -clearing cookies & browsing history

    Additional Information: Apple Support Communities has a thread on this as well -

    Please let us know if you have any thoughts--thank you.

    Gotta be in it to win it
    This does not look like an IOS issue as much as an infected malicious website issue.

    In the middle of several books.
    Do you have a content blocker installed? If so, which one? If not, I think it would be a good idea to install one.

    I have had this kind of thing happen to me with Safari in OS X. Force quitting and holding down the Command button during relaunch solved the problem.

    Did all this start happening with you going to a particular website?

    Any difference when accessing the web from Wifi vs. cellular?
