    It's been some time the browser in my z30 redirects automatically to ad sites And has made web browsing really unusable on the device.
    There are also same ads there when using android browsers.
    None of anti virus apps found any thing suspicious.
    It looks just like for example I type CNET.com and after the browser loads it will automatically be redirected to ad sites just the moment I touch to scroll or something and I can't do anything to stop it ! More than annoying
    I thought this supposed to be a secure OS after all..
    what could be the problem?!

    That doesn't help anymore. It's happening on my z30 too with that stuff turned on. I've been saying the browser is going down fast for awhile now and I get ridiculed. BlackBerry needs an update on the browser.

    I use mine regularly, never had that issue, perhaps delete history and cookies and reset the block pop up etc.

    They were both on
    They are different than pop up ads that the website you visit would show. All ads looks the same and seems like an adware is behind them

    And another one, you're on WiFi aren't you?

    Reset your router, it's infected and nothing to do with the OS or the OS security.

    Turn them off then delete your cookies history, turn on features, if that works. Alternatively use "Private Browser "

    Maybe that's the case but I don't think I ever noticed anything like this in other devices I use on the same wifi!
    How a router can be infected?!

    Anything can be infected these days, even WiFi barbie dolls.

    For some reason the BB10 Browser reacts to redirects from the router.
    Google router malware, a router wipe/ reset will solve it, then be careful what you browse.

    Clear your browsing cache and all that, will solve your problem.
    A fool proof test: try browsing in private browsing mode. I bet you get no ads

    I always use private browser, no difference
    That should be a serious problem like the infected router or something like that

    It's an infected router...

    People saying clear browsers temp data, so clearing for cache files and cookies are going to stop a Connection based redirect?
    There any other threads about this and they are all infected/ dodgy routers.

    I think it's a bb10 browser that needs updated. If I use browsie or evolution and set the phone to identify as android, my above mentioned problem is fixed.

    That really is the beginning and the end of it right there. I hope 10.3.3 at minimum brings ad blocking and javascript toggling to the browser. I feel like I'm struggling with IE7 when I use the stock browser.

    I have not experienced redirects, but I have experienced lots of websites with in page pop ups that are impossible to clear. Pressing the close button on the pop up does nothing. These are legitimate ads that belong to the site I'm visiting, but I can't close them to read the page I navigated to. I haven't played around with Android to see if the same thing happens on the Chrome browser.

    Are you using mobile sites or desktop?

    Typically desktop sites, and I know that that's the issue, but a click should be a click, as far as I'm concerned.

    Most mobile sites are still less functional than their corresponding desktop sites. I am comfortable not using sites that don't work properly. I just want the BlackBerry browser to work on well-coded sites.

    You should try one of the browsers with ad block

    Never had a problem with the browser. Definitely the best stock browser.

    The ones I'm talking about aren't banner ads. These are the call to action promotions that appear over the page content. They are native to the site, and my only issue is that they are rendered in such a way that they cannot be dismissed as intended. It seems likely to be poor design to me, but I also wonder if there could be issues with the browser contributing.
