Ads in all my threads

Has anyone else had this rather recently. Never saw it before reading this forum with IPad or IPhone I have ads and "suggested" sites all through each thread on the forum. Some in English, many in what looks like Japanese? I don't have this problem using the site with google chrome on my desktop at home. I have tried a couple different ad blocking apps, but only seems to be on this site.

Ad block mobile will help. Remember the ads reflect places you have been. I have heard there is a larger volume of ads on the app than the full site. I use the full site even on my iPhone and my kindle.

Paying bills is one thing but bombarding you with ads that are written to look like other threads on the forum is more insidious. I use Safari browser for lots of other forums and this is the only site where the app is displayed like that. I installed Chrome and can use the full site on my iPad but font is too small for my old eyes to see on my phone ( that was a good reason to use the apps in that they are optimized for viewing on mobile devices). The end result will be less time on the forum for me which is probably not what FR intends these forums for

I will agree there... Caught me a few times. Gotta pay more attention to what I click. I use Tapatalk for the phone. No ads on the full site as I ad block.

Thanks, I just saw your pics posted here and your PM. This should help our support people figure this out since it's beyond me! My Adblocker Mobile must be blocking all this stuff from my Tapatalk stream. I do know to make Adblocker Mobile work on my iPhone, I have to set VPN to ON.

Do you have any ideas on what the settings should be for VPN? Sorry for the large images below. My computer is having issues...

If you are logged in on the full site you should not see these ads. if you are using the app, are you logged in?

My Ad Block stats say 10 on this page currently and 314,966 blocked ads so far this year, on all Internet usage...

I get pretty good mileage from Ad Block.,. and it's freeware

Yes I am "logged in" on the Tapatalk app.

Dan - My phone set up doesn't look the same as your phone. When I do slide the button to the right to turn it on the "done" button is blocked which does not save the change when I exit settings.

Try going to settings then to general. Scroll down, you will see vpn. Mine currently reads not connected. To connect I would need to add vpn configuration. Not sure how to do that.

According to TMobile VPN is for business/corporation use things.

I guess AT&T/Apple don't view it as business/corporation things since it's required for my Adblock Mobile to work.

I never had any of the ads on the iphone until I accidentally did the recent update. I purposely refused to update the app for the last month because of this and other issues.
