Website redirecting
« on: August 23, 2015, 10:22:58 pm »
For some reason the site keeps redirecting me to the App Store on my phone. Anyone else having this problem?

This happens to me on my Iphone Its more likely than not a virus that has found its way into your device.. I use chrome and it helps with this issue but i would just try different browsers updating your device or whatever.

It's only on vgcollect. It doesn't happen on any other site.

Hmm, I'm doing a bit of research on the problem and it seems kinda common, though it usually occurs randomly on many different websites. If you use mainly VGCollect though, this could explain the fact that it's mostly here.

Other than that, people are blaming a few applications for intrusive ad-pushing, including AdMob, AdBlock and Music Paradise. It seems like an old issue that has went and come back a few times, so it's likely that people could have started doing it again. Nobody seems to know what to do though  :-\ I'l keep you updated if I find anything of use to fix the issue.

YouAppi seems like they're a company that people pay to have them redirect ads to their app.

Lol I consider this a virus because it makes your device perform in a manor that is unintended.

It's only on this site and only in the forums.
