    I was getting it too. Just on my phone. I normally read CC on my laptop. I wasn't even logged in since I can't remember my screen name.

    11:45. And I just got this pop up THREE times before I could successfully post this.

    IPad Air...current iOS. Cc through safari.

    I'm having the same issue on my iPad. My iPhone seems fine so far. It's happening faster and faster on my iPad - I can't even read a post before the pop up locks it up and I have to close the tab.

    Just reminding that it's also android. But I doubt this is phone specific. Rather, something about the mobile app. ? So I think the question would be, is anyone using the full app on their phone and getting these ads?

    On my S7 phone, I can hit the button left of home, it brings up all tabs and I can close the offending one or all. ('course, that closes the CC tab.) I also shut down completely, haven't seen the ad since. But online, that doesn't resolve it for all.

    I got that on another app too, so not just CC

    I've been getting it on just CC with my Android phone for about two weeks.

    I got it several times this morning. I'll just view on my laptop until error is fixed.

    On the app on iPhone 7 current iOS pop ups taking me to App Store. Happened several times in last few minutes. Different apps each time last one was NY times. Had to reload by hitting the home icon.
