adtrack.king redirect from SD in Chrome on iPhone

hotgrits 237 April 23, 2013 at 11:18 AM
Just wanted to report that for the last few weeks, when I open the SD website in Chrome on my iPhone 4S, I will occasionally (daily) get a redirect from adtrack.king that then opens iTunes to the game Candy Crush.
From looking around the internet it appears others have the same problem, and it is not unique to SD.
I cannot find a solution to this that works to get rid of the pop-up.

Just wanted to bring this to the attention of the PTB or anyone else here in case they know of any fixes - it is incredibly annoying!

Add me to the list of iPhone users who suddenly have the App store open to random candy crush and other games when surfing Slickdeals.net full browser version.

I don't care for the Slickdeals app as it doesn't have as much information and the same layout I like in the full browser version. My friend also has this happen on his Android S4.

I don't know if you guys are still working on this, but I'm on safari on my iPad and I'm having the same issues. If im browsing the site, it automatically opens up to some games in the app store. There are a few games it does this to,

Yes, we are aware. The ad providers have been informed too. I think other sites are having similar issues so I don't know how quickly this will be solved, I apologize for the inconvenience. I know it's highly annoying and appreciate your patience.
