When ever I go here on my ipad, an ad for some candy game thing keeps sending me to the App Store. In fact, while typing this, I got sent to the App Store again!

This. Basically anytime I use a mobile phone to browse KYM, my browser gets redirected to the app store on my phone. I can press back to go to a previous page, but it happens again in like 2-3 pages.

It happens on Windows Phone, it happens on Android, and (as above) it happens on iOS.

I've been getting these ads that pust the screen down from the top since maybe last night? It seems to be happening on most pages, though ironically this page that you're reading now seems to be the only page where it's loaded but not pushed down.

Having the same thing and same Ad. Haven't found any AdWare on my computer, so I'm wondering if it is the site.

This has consistently appeared on the top right every time I enter a page on this site. It's infuriating.

Why do we still have auto playing ads?

Kia Optima ad auto plays a bunch

Same with the Sorento

I've seen more. So i'll post them when I find them. I really hate having to close KYM in order to watch a video.

(Using Google Chrome)

The audio automatically plays on mobile, however. (Assuming you're logged in)

The video also takes up cellular data. I had to enable adblock for kym on my phone to prevent passing the limit.

After working hard to not mouse over it, I can say certainly that either the smallest fraction of a second clipping it on the very very edge of the ad is enough to play it, OR it keeps autoplaying regardless.

Either way, it's annoying.

After a few more days of this, I can confirm this is right… most of the time. In several instances I kept my mouse off to the side and it autoplayed regardless. The majority of times, it only plays if you mouse over it. Sometimes it plays for no reason.

(To be honest, these "optimized" ads are worse than the taboola clickbait ‚Äď which we still have.)

I'm getting an autoplay ad that will randomly start playing and unpause this youtube video about a dog or something from the ASPCA with a really loud song.

here's the youtube video if you need it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIHfSrpj3Ao.

Edit: apparently its an ad that plays for a video on another ad which is snow-board.tv. that ad keeps itself muted but the fact that it brings this annoying loud ad that autoplays is a problem.

These auto-playing video ads are starting to get annoying since when they activate on mobile (or at least Android) they force any audio playing on the device, such as that from Play Music or Spotify, to pause, even though the ads are on mute.

Not autoplaying or pop-up per se, but this Mylife ad, if it loads, forces me into one of its text entry fields automatically on mobile.


oh noes my phone has 4 virus and the battery is broken!1!!!
this mobiley site is shit

edit: this popped up 3 times while I tried to make this post

I'm constantly being redirected to ads like the ones asdf posted.

The sites mobiley.xyz and mobilew.xyz are the most common offenders.
