Pop Ups on iOS 12 in safari on an ipad

Go to solution

Hi community, but moreover BT IT!

 

Today I was browsing eBay. I made a search on eBay.co.uk for a door bell.

 

I clicked the first link and was presented with this (see image).

 

Of course I haven’t followed thru on what is clearly a scam. Financial information or otherwise.

 

However I am somewhat concerned how this redirect is possible. It is not like I am running Windows and infested with malware or viruses. Far from it. My entire network is Apple. Save for one PC which is protected with Kaspersky and Malware bytes.

 

Therefore I am somewhat bemused and confused how I have been served with an http redirect from a clean iPad.

i am using my own ASUS router, but this has had its admin passcode changed. I am running wpa2 wireless with aes 256bit. 

 

The only recent network addition is an Amazon dot. Which also ‘fell off the network’ randomly today and required a reset.

 

i use high cypher passwords for everything. Wireless networks, logins....everything! So I don’t see how being hacked is an option.

 

but to get this on an iPad is disturbing. Anyone else?

Absolutely nothing to do with BT or Ebay. Install a pop-up blocker for your browser.

It’s not so much a pop up as a redirect!

 

it pops up yes, well looks like it, but it’s actually a redirect to a different site!

 

Since when did pop up blockers exist for safari on iOS powered iPads anyway!

Look at the image before commenting. It’s not a standard ‘pop up’ it’s an http redirect upon clicking an eBay item

If you do an Internet search for "eBay link redirect" you will find numerous items about it happening.

Yes I have been heavily googling since my first post. It seems this may well have something too do with embedded code that relates to counters on items.

This happens only and exclusively on eBay. Moreover exclusively on the iPad today after ten years of Apple use.

I posted to see if others were having issues with other sites on fttp.

Seems this is an eBay issue of sorts. Thanks for your confirmation of what I already found.

As it is obviously not a BT problem I would suggest that you contact eBay about it as it would appear that their site may be the problem.

Going by what I (and you) have found, this is a recurrent problem with eBay.

It’s only happening on eBay so they can fix their own problem

It’s definitely not BT! Thanks for your positive input gg, I sent you some kudos 😉

Apple Safari web browser for MacOS Sierra

About as useless as a chocolate teapot on an iPad!

MacOS.

I did clearly state iOS 12!

This issue is already solved. The issue is eBay. (As you incorrectly stated like the link you listed for a pop up blocker).

Wish people that knew their beans would comment rather than knee jerk posts 😉

Wrong twice now chap!
