Are you using an iPhone when you get that message?

iPhone users (three of you so far, I think) are the only people reporting that problem.
It has been reported, but we haven't been told what can be done about it.

Since only iPhones experience it....why do we think the forum is the culprit? Maybe, just maybe, its the I phone. My Linux computer, my Win 10 computer and my Android phone dont have the problem.....Hmmmmmm

It's a virus on your phone. I get this from time to time on my Android, but haven't had it happen on this site. You have visited some click-bait Facebook story, email or something and gotten a virus on your phone (usually it's some click bait story on Facebook, like "You won't believe........). This will continue to happen until you pinpoint the source or do a factory reset on your phone. But, if you do a factory reset, remember...you lose EVERYTHING! This "virus" might even be in your backups for your phone, so reseting it might not even cure the issue. I've learned to just deal with it when it happens and not return. It does nothing that I'm aware of other then spam you with clickbait.
