    When on my phone I keep getting redirected to the "Play Store"? Is this something BYC is doing or something going on with my phone only?

    Mine does this too. Not just here though. It does it when I'm on Facebook as well. I've been looking on google for a solution and haven't found one yet, but it seems a lot of people have this problem.

    It's just happening on BYC, not with Facebook yet for me.

    If it's BYC they should stop it....I pay for data and I don't mind the ads on the pages but getting redirected is not right.

    We haven't changed anything on our end, but we're looking into what might be going on. To help us troubleshoot please reply to this thread with ALL the details below:

    1. What phone are you using?
    2. What version of iOS are you on (5, 6, 7, etc.)?
    3. Which browser on your phone are you using on BYC? (for example: Safari)
    4. Is this happening on every single page you view or just specific pages?
    5. Can you take screenshots of EXACTLY what you have on your screen and all the details of the app that it is having you try to download? (screenshots on iPhone = hold down home button and press power button)

    We need all the above and as much other details as possible.

    Thanks

    It's from an ad. I don't get ads here, but there are other web sites I've had this happening on lately. It really irritates me to no end.

    It does it not only here but on other pages and apps for me. But it just recently started happening on here for me, within the last few days, never happened before. It takes me to random games apps like candy crush and others.
