    Weird pop-up thingy again

    Advertisements
    So I have been experiencing a weird problem with the site again. I keep getting re-directed to a super site that asks me to update my browser and basically won't let me click anything except the "download updates" button (which I didn't click, I have to force-close Chrome).
    I just ran a virus scan and I don't think it's my computer, and my Chrome extensions for pop-up blockers, etc aren't catching anything. Pic below

    Thank you for reporting the problem. We will direct QP to the screen grab that you've posted.

    Just so everyone knows, we got this information from QP when this happened a couple of weeks ago:

    MSOS is serving ads only from google ads and google ads usually have the strictest guidelines for ads through them.
    We will never put any popups or ads with auto-redirect.

    Apparently, there are a few rogue ads that went past their review system and being served out.
    This is not unique to MSOS, other sites that are serving google ads probably display those rogue ads too.

    It has been reported to google ads department and they are taking action to remove those rogue ads from their system.
    We will let QP know it appears to be happening again so it can be reported.

    If anyone continues to get other redirects, please let us know so they can be reported as well!

    I've been getting them on my phone a lot, but not my computer. I usually get directed to another tab (that never ends up loading) or to the app store. Next time it happens I'll be sure to take a screen shot!

    Ok, the ads have been reported to Google and QP was told they have been removed.

    If anyone continues to have issues, please let us know!
