Default Pop ups on phone browser

Using chrome on my phone, keep getting pop ups that force me to close the browser. Never happens in any other site I view.

Getting ridiculous.

Post a link to a thread? Or a screen shot of the popup?

I get probably 15-20 of these ridiculously annoying popup ads per day while browsing via my iphone (safari). It's almost enough to make me not want to browse via mobile. Almost. But it really is out of hand!

Smart phone/tablet + view the full site option = Best RCTech experience...IMO

Shoot if I were given 15-20 $1000 gift cards a day. I would quit my job and celebrate. Lol

I bet that does get annoying.

Like racer said. Use the full view and problem solved.

Yeah, I get that...but full view isn't that great on mobile devices. I get that it "works", but the fact remains that the mobile-version sucks and needs someone to fix it. If they care. I don't think they do.

I always use the full site version but still get all the popups on my iphone and safari. Gets very frustrating at times.

What don't you like about using the full version on a mobile devise?

What "sucks and needs someone to fix" with the mobile version? Simply saying something sucks won't get anything changed

I get the normal full site ads, but no "pop ups" (an option in my Note 5 settings)

Adds change based on where rctech has tracked you around the web. Just because you haven't had an issue with popup, video and sound adds does not mean that there isn't one.

RCtech needs to do a better job at screening their adds.

RCT doesn't track your web history. The companies that IB sells those ad spaces too however certainly do.

And I didn't say those issues don't exist. I simply said I don't experience them.

On my older android phone, browsing rctech shuts the browser completely down. Usually first time, it will save the page I'm on. #2 always restarts the app at my home page.

But it's cool, it helps restrict my usage by limiting to 3-5 minutes per session.

I don't get popups, but I can not load the site on my iphone. It loads, but then an ad loads and it redirects the page to a page that looks like an iPhone alert dialog asking me to open the Appstore then 10 seconds later It opens the appstore to a poker app.

For me the pop up is an obvious phishing ad for Android. It says that if I don't say OK I will get locked out. When I clear my browser history, it does not come up as often. But it still does. Are there any phone guys that know how to prevent this? Would be much appreciated!
