Customer Question
I have a pop...

I have a pop up that just won’t go away, no matter what I do. It’s the one that says “Congratulatuions! Amazon User! You’ve been selected for a chance to get the $1,000 Amazon Gift Card, Apple iPhone X 256G or Samsung Galaxy S8! Please click OK to claim your reward before it expires!

Technician's Assistant: What kind of Apple device do you have? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

I have the iMac, iPhone and iPad, all with the latest OS update (11.2.6).

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your iMac? What have you tried so far?

Im currently on my iPad. I get this pop up on both my iPad and iPhone since I use them the most.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

Its been popping up for about a week. I’ve tried setting my computer to not allow pop ups and restarted my system. Still comes back.

This type of adware programs are commonly bundled with other free programs that you download off of the Internet. So remove every unwanted programs, especially the FREE stuffs. Then Start with Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Data. Then force restart your iPhone/iPad. If it not helps, install this Adblocker App on your device.

This does NOT fix the Safari issue. The Ad Blocker has a fee after the trial period. I bought my iPad and iPhone with a browser I expect to work and block ads and pop ups. I want a FIX!
Mac Support Specialist: Jins M. N., Computer Hardware Engineer replied 5 months ago

Turn ON Safari security settings , particularly Block Pop-ups and Fraudulent Website Warning. On your iPhone, iPad, go to Settings > Safari and turn on Block Pop-ups and Fraudulent Website Warning.

They’ve been on all along. Obviously they are not enough to stop this ad. Many Apple users are being affected the same as I am. Apple needs to come up with a solution immediately. HELP!
Mac Support Specialist: Jins M. N., Computer Hardware Engineer replied 5 months ago

If you see pop-ups on your Apple Device that just won’t go away, you might have inadvertently downloaded and installed adware (advertising-supported software) or other unwanted software. Certain third-party download sites might include programs that you don’t want with the software that you install. Check your Apps to see if you have any apps that you didn’t expect and uninstall them. If you continue to see advertising or other unwanted programs on your Mac you should use an Adblocker App like the one I suggested earlier. It's like using antivirus program on your computer.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
