Did you check what browser add-ins you have installed?

You dont mention what device youre using but since you say "fake" I'm guessing some adware or crappy malware not a simple ad. You can run MBAM on a PC from malwarebytes.org or on a tablet clear out the cache and temp files from the settings tab then whatever sub menu for the browser you're using. Browser add ons as was mentioned and if possible add/remove programs to view all installed software. As to why which I just realized was your actual question, I'm guessing some website plunked something into the browser somehow or some redirect when you're on this site but that's beyond me. The usual reason is someone gets paid when you view that pop up so however they can jam it on you they do. Darn scammers.

Hey,

The next time you see this ad, 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.Screen shot


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

Niall

It's been happening when I'm using my iPhone X. I'm noticing it happening on other websites now so I'm thinking it's on my end and not the site. Right now I am in an iPad so let's see if the same pop ups happen while using the iPad.

Google just added a significant new ad-blocker to Chrome as well. That prevents the web site from making you turn it off to view it.

I had someone say that the new iphone updates where getting it but the older mac/ipads weren't.

yes this site is loaded with jangle...It would not even operate properly for me and would slow to a crawl....you MUST run an adblocker to fix it...I run "Fair AdBlocker" extension FREE on chrome browser.

I've been getting this too on my iPad and iPhone running iOS 11 and using Safari. Usually I use Tapatalk, but occasionally I'll google something and click on a Stromtrooper thread in the search results.
