For the last couple of days, every time I'm browsing LG I keep getting redirected to the app store on my iPad. Is this even possible? ...or is something going wrong with my iPad?

Yes, just got this on the iPad a few minutes ago as well. There's a king.com ad tracking referral interstitial site that it goes to before the App Store pops up and goes to an app called Candy Crush Saga. Thank you DB for looking into this!

Yes. Accidentally clicked the site in Safari instead of the other browser I use and was re-directed.

LG always gets redirected to an ad page of some sort, usually happens when I first start browsing for the day. Right now I'm having the problem of getting redirected to the App Store for Candy Crush Saga. Happened four times in two minutes...off-topic forum.

Obviously, there are no "candy crush" labeled ads on the networks or this would be easier to solve. I just don't see anything that would clue me in on where this could be...if it's coming from an ad. I've been reading a few threads about others having this same problem on other sites, some have had issues after installing an app on their phone, but since we have different people here experiencing this, it's got to be some kind of rogue ad somewhere in the networks.

Safari on my iPhone takes to me to Candy Crush on LG and other various websites I use.
