    I have a solution though guys. Install and use the mobile app to use the forums and you won't get these virus alerts on your phone!

    Came in to complain as well. I had a pop up that created an extremely loud alarm noise while I was checking Sherdog on my phone at work. If I don't stop loading halfway through I get all kinds of issues with freezing and an inability to click links. What prompted me to complain is I litterally just had ten pop ups fly up on my phone. I feel like I'm trying to look at Internet porn in the 90's. Get it together Sherdog...

    This is is not true at all. I only get these alerts when I use the app. Also it crashes all the time.

    Yeah, I get the "virus" popup every now and then when I use my phone to browse the forums. It's rather annoying.

    This shit is driving me insane. In the past it would happen once in a while but it's like none stop the last couple of days. Is anyone working on it? Anyone have luck fixing this?

    Yeah it's gone way past the point of being acceptable. Just had my phone redirect to fake virus warnings or giveaways nonstop for several hours while trying to browse the site. Sherdog is literally unusable on mobile now. The only fix I've heard of is to go platinum, but that seems pretty unreasonable.

    As others have said these are straight up the kind of redirects you would get browsing on shady sites in the 90's. It's ridiculous and literally no other site does this.

    I don't understand it to be honest. Initially I thought because of my outstanding work done in the warroom outing various political and foreign enemies of the people that the Trump administration, CIA or Russia ( or all three) were attempting to hack into my phone, but now that I see it's happening to more than just me I am now questioning this assumption. Not even the Russian golden shower hooker or the interacial transgender muslim porn I fap to daily gives me this amount of malware problems. It's getting to be re-goddam-dickulous.

    I posted in the other thread about this my solution, or what's worked so far for me.

    Ad block browser... Make sure to click the three dots on the corner and enable it on sherdog.

    Nothing else worked for me, not deleting recent apps, deleting history, data, downloads, disabeling apps, virus/malware protection-detection-prevention (which I don't believe in).

    It is this site not a virus as long as you didn't do what the pop up suggests...

    It's crazy because it's ONLY sherdog. Even porn sites don't trigger the redirects and spam bullshit that this site does. It's bewildering.

    Yup, it's only Sherdog for me too. I think they're looking for our nudes so they can blackmail us.

    ...and I just read the sticky thread about suggesting a fix being an infraction... It should be praised in this case as the pop ups aren't just pop ups, they are malicious and incapacitating, making the site unnavigable.

    It hacks your phone and takes in all information. The pop ups know my wifi and exact phone type. And I've been getting bombarded with non stop telemarket calls.
