Getting Pop Ups In Chrome On Non-Secure Sites

Recommended Posts

I'm noticing that whenever I go to a non-secure site in Chrome, I sometimes get a pop up for Optimum asking if I'm the owner of an account. Usually a refresh takes it away. Initially, I thought it was one site that I go to, but I'm noticing pop up on one or two others now, the link being the fact that the sites on not secure according to Chrome. Did a Malware scan and nothing is coming up and I have the Beta extension in place. I'm starting to think this is either A. An issue with the version I have of Chrome, itself or B. My router possibly? I don't use Optimum, so I have no idea what's going on.

That's probably what's going on, then. I've seen other cases where internet service providers have wireless access points available throughout an area that their customers can connect to, but they would need to log in to their accounts to do so. I suspect that's what is happening in this case. If you have a home wifi, but are also in range of another of their wireless networks, your computer might be connecting to that sometimes instead of your home wifi, depending on signal strength.
