    Happening on my iPad pretty much every day now. I'll be reading in Now Playing or Happy Hour at lunch and after a few pages I get redirected to a page with an Amazon logo and a pop-up that say "Congratulations! You have been selected to receive a $1000 Amazon Gift Card!"

    I'm stuck at that point. All I can do is use a bookmark to get back to the forum 'cause that Amazon page is persistent. Anyone else seeing this?

    Yup, several times over the past couple of days on Android (Samsung S6). But, they're very intermittent. (ie, I can't just pick up the phone and make it happen)

    Edit: If I open TCF on my android, load one page, and walk away.... When I come back I will have an Amazon Gift Cart ad waiting for me.

    Is there an Android version of this? The only ones listed are desktop or apple.

    If there is, they didn't supply one.

    You might try following the iOS one as I think httpwatch is available for Android.

    This is a well known security researcher - he wants screenshots with URLs visible... He's going to try to help figure out how to stop them.
