That is bothersome. Can you please try to screenshot it if it happens again and post the shot in this thread for me please? If you can get the URL or any other info that would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks I have reported this and believe our ad team have blocked it. At least for the time being.

Misery loves company. These pop up ads are making Rennlist completely useable. I have an iPhone 7 with up to date OS. I just cleared all website data and search history for the 5th time in the last 24 hours. I get the pop ups in Safari and Edge browser. (Yes, Edge is available for the iPhone). Apple support says clearing the history and data will solve the pop ups if it is on my phone.

Thanks for for the help and merry Christmas

Same happens here. iOS 11.0.3 safari.

Tip if you hold the back browser arrow for a second a list of past pages appears and you can go back two. Back one just reloads hijack.

Same problem here. Happening consistently on iOS 11.2.1 on my iPad Pro with safari, probably had it nearly 20x times so far.

It’s a similar amazon gift card message shown above, redirecting to the following url:
http://f2e4.pw/us_amazon_amazon1000/...n=rennlist.com

I’m getting it on multiple threads, including this one:
