  1. Every time I get on talkbass on my iPhone, I keep getting a scam pop up. I’ve done all the steps that the internet suggests to block them. And it works great... until I get on talkbass. Then they pop up at every other page. Attached is a reference picture.

    Yes. I also get them on my phone (android). But strangely enough, the pop-ups don't appear on my tablet (also an android). :confused:

    These are usually other junk on your phone, not originating from TB. Almost always a malicious app install, or cached data from other (usually shady/illegitimate) websites.

    I NEVER click on a pop up (although my blocker stops most of them), nor do I click on links from email. If I want something, I go directly to the site.
