Rogue ads when using my Android phone...

Yesterday evening I was having a lot of issues with rogue ads taking over my mobile Chrome browser and I had to leave the Neowin website in order to get the ads to close.  I am posting the links below that I was able to copy from my phone history.

This happened while I was browsing the Neowin forums.

does this happen on any other site? if so you could have a rogue app on your phone presenting ads

 

@Steven P. to check/report with our provider :)

No, it was only happening when I was on the Neowin forums.  No other website issues.

The problem is, Neowin does not have those survey award type ads at all. Whenever I report them I am told that it is possible that another site added malware to the phone or browser session. Best thing to do in the first example is to clear all data (cache) from Chrome which should empty out any rogue cookies.

 

We only have inline mobile ads (in the page, not popped up or redirecting away).
