    Lately I've been running into auto-redirect ads on mobile. I can't pinpoint the culprit at the moment due to it going so quick, but it takes me to one of those reward scams.

    I’ve notified Pomador of this issue. We may need to collect more data — so if you or anyone else encounters these malicious ads, try stopping the browser and taking screenshots or IDs (see the web inspector) so you/we can report them.

      Sorry about being so long, but I finally caught one in the wild in a way that I can get to the ads! One ad contained one of those automated voice redirects to an app download.

      I managed to get screenshots at least, there were three ads in this page:
