There’s a new issue that’s causing quite a stir from Apple users. The mobfree.click webpage issue has been causing problems to users running with the iOS 9 and higher which means that iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users are experiencing this issue. Apparently, there’s a web browsing issue that rises from using Safari and Google Chrome.
The issue occurs simply. The user would open the Safari browser and surf on a specific webpage, only to be redirected to the mobfree.click page after the site of interest loads. There will be a number of apps that the page would display that are offered free and at the bottom, there’s also a message saying “waiting for download” which could mean that there’s an unknown software being installed. It’s possible that the redirection is only the beginning of an even bigger malware attack on the device or it could add junk files on your device that would eventually affect the memory.
To fix the issue, a user can install the Adblock Plus which reportedly is effective and efficient in discontinuing the rerouting and redirecting activity going on in your Safari browser. If you don’t feel like installing a browser extension that blocks this kind of activity, a user can opt on disabling the Java Script in Safari. By disabling, any third-party content on websites visited cannot be used for rerouting activity.
Make sure that your device is protected from any issue and also make sure that it isn’t susceptible from any hackers and malware. Ensure the safety of your phone or gadget by installing software that’s meant to protect it from any issue. If you’ve been experiencing any malware, you can fix it by setting the settings back into the original default ones that you’ve had because chances are, the virus has changed your default settings into its preferred one.
Here are some tips and tricks that will help you fix this issue:
