    Default 2nd redirect I. Two days

    This is the second time I was reading a thread and the redirected to a Google warning that I have viruses on my phone and must act now or else. The last thing I want is spyware traps from this site.

    Hello there,

    The next time you see these ads, we'd need the following:

    1.What device you're using.

    2.The OS/browser you're using.

    3.Your general location.

    4.The URL of the ad, you can get this by right clicking the ad and clicking "copy link address". You can also click "inspect" and copy the highlighted text.

    5.Screenshot

    Once we get that we can send it to our tech team and get them to investigate. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Do you have the URL of the advertisement?
    Also, if you can, send me a screenshot of it. That'll be great!

    If it happens again, grab us a screenshot of it, and the URL of the advert so we can look at getting it blocked.

    Sorry, I missed the URL, but this is the description that comes up when I type beesource in.

    Unfortunately its using the beesource.com address as that seems to be the page it popped up on. When it comes up I'll need you to click the URL at the top and copy/paste it here. It should be a long string of nonsense and strange words.

    I got the same Google warning the evening of Christmas day. I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 and Chrome. I immediately removed cookies and emptied history. Went back on BS the next day and so far no other problems.

    These types of popups can show up anywhere, from anywhere. I get them on my personal phone which I never use for work. I have picked them up on tons of sites.

    Clearing cookies ensures that if you picked it up from a different site, but it's showing on this one, that it would remove it.

    If you have any here, we'll need the information requested to block them.
