Today I keep.getting these stupid amazon winner popups. Clearing history does not fix it. It seems associated with this site.

Go fish. Mobile should be safe from that crap, I would think. Two browsers also muddies the waters for troubleshooting it. Sorry. I'll think harder.

It isn't an uncommon problem. You can Google amazon pop-up rewards and get a lot of hits. It isn't really amazon it is some sort of malware coming from a site or apps. It popped up 3 times a few minutes ago while typing a long post in the PF. You have to shut the browser tab down. You can't get back to the website.

Seems like if I do all the above it makes it go away for a little while

Shutdown all browser tabs
Clear browser history
Shut down browser
Shut down wifi and turn on airplsne mode
Go to settings and clear browser history (again)

That works a little while but stay on this site long enough it comes back.

I use an up to date android phone, using chrome or Samsung's native browser...have never seen anything like that on my new phone, or my previous one.

I am on my chrome book and my only problems are self inflicted. I try the phone sometimes but its like writing a letter on toilet paper with charcoal.
