Is anyone else having a problem with being redirected to a site that says you've won something?

This is happening a lot on my iPad and is really annoying.

How do I get rid of this?

Thanks. Rodney

iPad here as well.... I went as far as where it says enter your email and address to claim your $1000! Then closed the page.

Have you tried deleting history and cookies in the Settings - Safari menu?

Yeah, I've been dealing with this for a few months now.
I tried ad blocker, deleting history, search setting, disabling cookies etc. nothing works.
Yesterday I got a notice that my iPhone had a virus and it locked up.
I deleted the search history and it was fine after that.
You probably got that from a search you did on a corrupted site.
I was searching handgun parts and got re directed to a site for mail order brides from China, I bought four of them.
I will only do the re direct to an apple device.
It won't do it in the "Enhanced Mobile View".......Ooooooh,....fancy!
Although I enjoy the full desktop version.
Good luck.

It happens to me a lot. I've noticed it only happens when I am not logged in. It redirects so fast you can't login sometimes. It's pretty frustrating. iPad and IPhone.

Ive been conversing with support for about a month now about this. They were able to block it if you are logged in but are having trouble nailing down the block needed if you are accessing the site as a guest.
And yes it only happens with an iOS device like iPads.

Can you copy the link address for that redirect? I'll make sure it's been added to the blocked list.
