Swiping down on ad inadvertently clicks it

119 32 January 2, 2020 at 10:00 AM
Something changed recently where when I'm swiping down while browsing slickdeals on the IOS app, there are different behaviors. When I swipe down and touch a deal, it swipes down as expected. When I swipe down and touch an advertisement, it takes me to the advertisers page.

I'm going to assume good intent here and assume this isn't intended because it would falsely register intentional advertiser clicks.

Hi MouseBoxeo,

Thank you for reaching out to us regarding this issue. I can assure you that the behavior of the ads as you are describing is not intended, and we are looking into the issue with an aim to understand why this is happening in an effort to improve the experience for everyone going forward. You should only be directed to an advertisers page or app download page if you specifically click or tap on that advertisement.

We have taken preventative measures to remove the ad from the app which we believe to be causing this issue (based on the reports we received over the weekend). If you find that this problem is still occurring, please take a screenshot of the ad as it appears on our app (not the redirect), and let us know by either contacting us through the forums, or emailing us directly at ios@slickdeals.net or android@slickdeals.net.

Thank you so much, we appreciate you, and apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

Thanks,
Mike
