    Default Pop up on ipad

    This appeared on my iPad just now ! I know it must be a scam because Apple don't just give things away for free.
    I clicked Close, and Daily sweepstakes page opened.....I then closed the browser. Just wondering how to stop it popping up? See screenshot below.

    Nothing more than a popup. They set them up to be difficult to close. Nothing to panic about.

    If you can't close it using the normal methods, try double tapping the home button, and swiping up on your web browser app and see if that works.

    Are you not able to just create a new tab and close the offending one?

    Yeah did close it by doing that, but how did it get there, that's what I'd like to know?

    NB. Have now installed Trend Micro for iPad ....... (see panic mode for explanation).

    It's just a popup - TM won't necessarily stop those, think of it as just an annoying pop up, except it looks scary.

    Hello lakewoodlady,
    So as long as you don't give any of your personal information by adding your phone number Or as long as it doesn't download something while you try to close it, you are ok.
    It's just a classic pop up that mostly occurs in mobiles and i-pads.
    Nothing to worry about
