    Access Basnotes site via Iphone

    Hello All,

     

    I am not able to access the site via my Iphone. It redirects me to something like "Candy Crush" and adtrack.king.com/.... However, I am able to access yahoo and CNN, etc.

     

    Does anyone have the same issue?

     

    Thanks.

    Thank you ALL. It looks like I probably need to visit my local Apple store then.

    I'm having the same exact problem. From my iPhone but not my wife's. Apparently ad track king only redirects you from sites you visit often. I haven't found a solution for this yet.

    How long have you had this problem Buysblind? If you know of the solution, please keep me posted and I would do the same. Thanks.

    It just started in the last hour. It's a pain in the ass! I'll def let u know if I find a solution, though concrete answers have been hard to track down. Most of my google searches are just yielding people like us griping about it and posing questions in online forums. But it doesn't seem anyone can get rid of it. I'll keep looking.

    It looks like it's malware? - there are instructions for removal online.

     

    I don't know how reliable this is?

    You CANNOT get malware on iOS. You do not need to Reset you device! Jeez...

    Basenotes is loading an ad, which runs some JavaScript. It is picking up a unique identifier for your iPhone and based on this, redirecting Safari to a URL that brings up the App Store.

    To stop it, you can turn off the ID used by the ad to track you, but it's in an odd place in the Settings app. General > About > Advertising. Turn Limit Ad Tracking on. Tap on Reset Advertising Identifier (which will break the ID lookup that the JavaScript in the ad is doing).

    Oh and Safari > Advanced > Website Data and tap the big red button smile.gif
