    Just a pain in the rear advertisement redirect.
    I get many of them too.

    Right now, your guess is as good as anyone else. I have been reading a few other websites on this matter and no one else has a definitive answer or how to rectify the issue. As of the moment, the only stopgap measure seems to be to install an ad-blocker, which should arrest the re-directing problem at least.

    Someone already told you, and I'll assume your not trolling. It's a simple ad-redirect. That websites makes money off of ads, and companies pay these sites for including their advertisements. If you click the app, you. It's likely are taken to the corresponding app in the App Store.

    There is no further explanation. It simply is a website redirecting you to an ad.

    Your trolling right?

    It happens to anyone who visits whatever site you went to, unless you have a content blocker. Content blockers present their own problems for some sites, so if your being serious here, I don't recommend it; as you will need to know when to turn it off or whitelist a page.

    Anyway, I'm done on this thread

    Merry Christmas.

    It wasn't happening to me before. It happened after factory reset. I'm not trolling here.

    OP, its not a virus, so stop it with this virus stuff. We get some advertisement redirects from time to time. Different for me, and others but we get them. Ignore it and move on.
