Spam, do not click it.

The script does a lookup on your IP range to know you're with BT, so it looks genuine.

100% scam.

Why it shows an IPv6 address is unclear, since it's unlikely for BTinternet users to have one ....

Your were right to delete it. The “sponsors” are not BT.

This message seems to be more common on Safari, and not Windows browsers, which are better at eliminating junk.

If you took the survey, take a careful look in your Safari history cookies, and delete any junk - selectively.

You mentioned you're using an iPad. That being the case, why not download the Bing app so you can run Bing without the need to run Safari.

Bing is only a search engine, and not a browser. It’s probably ok if set correctly.

I use google as a search engine, and it gives security  indications only when the searched site is opened.

It’s Safari which stores the good/or/ bad cookies.

I think that the Chrome  Browser is available for iOS devices, not sure of effectiveness, though.

Pardon me. Apologies. I did not realise you were NOT asking a question!

"i did not take the survey, with safari i use the bing search engine is that the best option."

Did not use Safari
Used Bing
Is that the best option (sounds like a question)

Yes, Chrome is available on iOS - great for translations on the fly>
Google available
Safari available
Bing available
Opera Mini available
Opera Touch available
Opera Coast (Unavailable but still installed and functional)
Edge available
Firefox available
Duckduckgo available

All the above are installed on my iPad Pro and work well. On iOS, you don't need a browser to run a search engine app!

Again, apologies if I misunderstood your post.
