    Hi fellow low enders, the last week or so I have been getting pop up ads on my phone while on talkbass.

    I hope this isn't Talkbass initiated. Has anyone else had the messages below pop up on their smart phones while using Tb?

    Not cool. Any mods want to chime in on why this is happening?

    Yes. I thought I had some sort of virus.

    I would guess it is an ads thing, I haven't seen this on my end. I only browse through my PC though, I don't know if that affects anything.

    Have not seen them on PC, using firefox. However, that is not a good thing.
