Is There A Thread On Here, Showing How To Get Rid Of Pop-Ups?

I have an Apple iPad Air and l have never had this problem before.
Lately, Pop-Ups keep appearing on Safari and Google Chrome. They are mainly from Car Phone Warehouse or telling me, líve won something.
I have deleted all my history but they still keep appearing. I thought stuff like this didnít happen with Apple?

Admin, If there is a already a thread advising on this problem, please delete this or add this to it.

Dunno about Safari Art, but on chrome you can go into the menu and activate ad block.

Edit - should be under extensions.

I use Safari browser on a MacBook Pro and have always had AdBlock installed, it's a free version although you can purchase one that I guess is better as it's paid-for. The free one works for me, the only hassle you might get is that some websites will recognise AdBlock is being used and ask you to turn it off or 'whitelist' them, just go to another site and don't use those that do that. Why on earth do they think you use AdBlock, do they believe some of us are stupid!

I am not sure where l will find the menu and extensions as once the pop up arrived l could not access anything else, as the pop up, wouldnít go and l wasnít going to touch anything on it.

Actually, l deleted Google Chrome in the end in ĎSettingsí as the pop up kept appearing.

You are welcome. You've not done anything, it's the websites that put these adverts up, that's often how they are funded. Often I've found it's the newspapers and magazines that ask you to turn AdBlock off, it's how any publication, in print form or online is funded. I often feel a little guilty at using AdBlocker as I used to work in the advertising industry, which gave me a good living. On the other hand though I find advertising the way it's done these days to be intrusive!

Safari has a built in pop up blocker which should be enabled
