    just an FYI, I’m getting redirected from Finheaven to spam sites when using apple devices. It’s happening 1 or 2 times daily the last few days.

    It’s been happening about twice as often as of late.

    @Locke have you tried a different browser? Like Chrome or Firefox? I know they have apps on Android but not sure about Apple.

    I haven’t. I’ll look into if that’s possible or not on Apple.

    @GCD960 Try downloading Firefox or Chrome for your device and try the site on those browsers.

    It’s early November now I can’t come on the site for more than 3 mins before it takes me to the

    CONGRATULATIONS!!, you are an Amazon gift card winner!!”

    Is this a virus, and how should we proceed with our apple phones?

    Yup. There are days where the site is pretty much inaccessible because of it.

    I’ll download one of these browsers and the next day it’s happening I’ll see if it’s happening across browsers, but I’m not going to use a different browser overall since I’m comfortable with Safari and this is the only site we have issues with.

    Really, my point was just to let you guys know it was happening. I’ve been on this site a while and am invested, but this would definitely chase off any newer members.
