    I get it as well, phone only, super annoying. Need to hit the back button about a half dozen times to get out of it.

    I get the same thing and go to the favorites page and reload. Always the same message. Only on my Android phone. It seems to be an ad for an anti virus but the URL is not them.

    I have AVG and scans come up clean, but I recognize this crap when I see it and don't click.

    Yup, it's terrible on the phone, which is the only way I browse. Never had this problem on the "less secure" previous format

    Just happened to me on Android.

    I was swiping on a New Posts page, probably clicked on a link. Then got the fake virus screens shown below. I also enclose my history to help troubleshooting.
