I have been getting redirected to Viglink Shopping by Forum links to Ebay items on my Chrome browser mobile phone.

Is anyone else getting this?     Pictures below.

We are not supposed to have advertising.

Every time I click on a link it goes straight to ebay, mind you, I do not use Chrome.

Hi Les, I use Chrome on the pc and like yours, I go straight to the ebay item.

The Chrome on my phone with an Android OS is a whole other deal.

I do believe Andrew may be right about this being an mff issue.

This is not a very smart time for them to try to force advertising on us.

Using W10 and IE on the PC,

Couldn't work out what was happening and why I was going to that site. Thanks for starting a thread about it Gil.
