I keep getting re-directed to other websites ....

... when I log in in TAM.

I'm having to post this on my phone because on my Mac it won't stay on a page long enough to post. I keep getting re-directed to web pages that tell me I need to update flash or that I have viruses. Neither is the case.

"AppleCare" is the one telling me I have 3 viruses including a Trojan. I googled this and it's been a scam in the past. "Adobe" is telling me to update flash. Both sites don't look "right" and of course ask me to click on a button to repair it.

Also, yesterday there was an obnoxious ad with a older man and younger woman talking about a movie. It would come up on every page. Super annoying.

Oh and other websites I frequent are not doing this, just TAM.

Re: I keep getting re-directed to other websites ....

On my Mac I use an ad blocker with Safari and this doesn't occur, on the other hand using Google Chrome or Safari on my iPad I have a similar problem where it sometimes though not always redirects me to a page with a square black something with a spinning wheel thingy, for want of a better description since on the iPad I can't view page source and elements etc.

Re: I keep getting re-directed to other websites ....

This has happened to me occasionally on my Chromebook and my computer at home... I installed an AdBlocker extension into Chrome, and it seems to have solved the problem. Has never happened on my PC at work.

Sounds like you may have a browser injection...

And yes, this one is free.

Then set up ad-blocking extensions with your browser of choice.

It is happening to me as well. It is rendering TAM impossible to use unless you stop the loading of a page manually each time you load a new page.

I'm not finding this Far... I've been on today in Windows and Mac, four different browsers in each.

Is it possible TAM has a bad guy AD?

What you are describing sounds like a Google analytics link or adclick lookup error that won't resolve.

ETA: Any AdBlock extension will stop this from happening...

Re: I keep getting re-directed to other websites ....

I am getting auto redirects to these two links when selecting the "likes" screen. I could not get to the browser to copy the links.



The second time I got this:



Device: Google Pixel XL 128
Browser: Chrome

Re: I keep getting re-directed to other websites ....

I had this problem years ago (2013-ish?) but so far nothing lately. Could ad block be preventing this?

Re: I keep getting re-directed to other websites ....

Yesterday I was getting redirected to a white page that says "nanoadexchange.com". I wasn't even clicking on any ads; very frustrating.
We'll see how it goes today.

I have an ad blocker and don't have any of these problems.

Re: I keep getting re-directed to other websites ....

I did not want to start a new thread for something so minor, but the past 2 weeks or so I get arbitrarily logged out of TAM. Sometimes as fast as 5 minutes, or an hour or so. Happens numerous times a day. Getting annoying.

Anyone else?
