Hi Test_pilot28,


These redirections and pop-ups are browser related, usually caused by a bad ad reseller. I would suggest clearing out your browser history, its likely a cookie that keeps pointing to these URLs. If you sync your browsers with your desktop temporarily disable and cleanup the any potential infections—the bad URL could be replicating to your mobile device.
