That's a dodgy ad

To help us block it, could you supply us PM me) with your browsing history from when you visited the site to when you ended up on cellphone-tips com?

There will likely be a series of urls that you were bounced through before landing on that site.

Our ad provider has now found the source of this and blocked the ads

Let me know if you have any further problems

On mobile, the homepage keeps redirecting me to the app store.

Give them a couple days to respond, if they don't get back to you I'll forward your issue to the website developers.

I am barely able to view the website as I get repeated redirects to a game app website ccss.play.king.com. I don't see these as ads on the website, so it's not a matter of accidentally clicking them. Only seems to be on my mobile and only on CN. Happens on main page or within articles.

Thanks for the info, have passed this on.

Please could you advise whether you are on wifi or cellular network and what device you are using as we can replicate the ad this way and prevent it from continuing.
