    Yes!!!.

    It's been 3 days and my phone is still working. So clearly "shit ad" doesn't know what it's talking about. But once it starts. Its like an annoying hiccups. Every other page it pops up.

    So far today has been hiccup free. ***Knoxk on wood**"*

    Ads on here now, for me at least are disturbingly accurate. Currently being shown a selection of fine bbq's i may want to look at.

    I have a Google phone (I love it). I told them via chat su
    pport
    I'm getting takeover browser ads saying they're going to shut my phone down if I don't download this VPN. They said they never ever ever ever do necessary adjustments that way. That is a hoax and likely malware.

    Anything they want to put on your phone they do it through authorized updates.

    Whoever is doing this ad is a scammer and probably a crook from what they explain to me. They did not say that but they didn't have to from what they told me.

    Moreover, this is the only sit e I'm getting it on.

    Same here. Google phone too. Yeah, I could tell it was a scam. I just wished it would stop bothering folks who know not to bite.

    Seem to get these almost every other page I visit, disguised as an Amazon ad. On iPad in U.S.

    started getting this message again (on my iPad) and once it appears I lose connection to Blue Moon. Not getting this on other sites. Could be my iPad but I remember a few of us getting similar messages some time ago

    Wipe your cache, browsing history, cookies etc, sounds like adware.
