    I've tried to pin down this ad but can't without more information. Copy the url of the site you go to and that would be a huge help.

    And you were mobile? Just took over and sent you or did something pop up first?

    On mobile... Took over and sent me to the App Store to get Candy Crush.

    This has been one of several different ones for me.

    I've shut down one ad network entirely to see if they are the culprit. In a few hours, if they stop, we know it's them and I can pin this down. So, if you see it after 3 today, let me know.
