How to stop to Chaturbate

This ad which takes over the page is a constant irritant - I'm not making a moral judgement here, consenting adults etc, just the fact that when I come here I'm interested in painting and art materials.

Edmund

EDIT: See post#62 Doug. Thanks shadye

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

This has been taken up in past months and there is a way around it...mainly by not using back buttons.....I cannot find the thread at the moment but think that Doug may be able to assist.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

WetCanvas Site Discussions section has a few threads about it & some tips - like ad blockers & pop up blockers if on computer etc..
once you get any bad pop up check browser cookies to make sure nothing related is saved there.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I'm certainly not getting many complaints about chaturbat of late, yes see the suggestions in Site Disciussions. I am using Windows 10 with Chrome and Adblock Plus and don't see chaturbate.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I saw it once or twice, despite AD Block, but I on't anymore.

Not using the back button helps.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I had it appear yesterday. So annoying - especially to those of us with a Presbyterian upbringing . Think I used the back button by mistake.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I have it always and it is a reason why I not often look on WC anymore.
I use always the back button while surfing (ipad mini4 / Safari /IOS newest version). It is my usual habit, I think I cannot change this when using WC.

Think this must be blocked by administration of the site, not by users with a "special threatment" in moving on this site

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I asked a man who knows about such things without naming any specific sites.
Opinion is that if a person is getting it often then there is a chance that it has already gone into their browser! In which case scanning with any of the normal malware sites MAY help....otherwise check your own programmes and see if there is something there which you don't recognise..and delete.

If this isn't the answer then the suggestion is Google " How to remove xxxxxx programme" where there may be a number of answers.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I believe it is embedded in wetcanvas somewhere and the techies have not yet been able to eliminate it. Use and adblocker meanwhile.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

And here I thought I was the only one getting this. Unfortunately this isn't the only site plagued with this sort of thing.

Doug,

We all use different access methods, I use an iPad, others will be on phones etc.

The problem is on the site as we're all seeing it here - personally I've never seen it elsewhere.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

That is why my contact implied that it could 'hide' in ones own devices....I never had it on my PC but did on my Kindle...why?

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I had it a couple of days ago for the first time. I didn't use the back button. I was trying to refresh the page and accidentally hit somewhere in the top right corner of the screen. I am on an iPad using Safari.

Re: Please put a stop to Chaturbate

I've had this problem since April.

Only on my Android tablet, running 6.0.1.

It does not affect my Windows 7 computer.

On my tablet, I ran every diagnostic I could think of: deleted programs, erased caches, reinstalled programs, installed malware programs and antivirus programs (supposedly not needed on Android mobile devices).

And then I found a thread about the actual WetCanvas site being infected. Aha!

Just checked again today that Chaturbate is active when accessing the WC site from my tablet.

What I've been doing as a workaround for a long time is:

1) open WetCanvas
2) navigate ONCE using a WetCanvas link
2a) that is, don't use your browser back button

After once not using the browser back button, I can then resume using it until my session is closed. I have to repeat the above sequence each time I open WetCanvas on my Android tablet.

I'm rather surprised this hasn't been taken care of in all these months and expect it is probably driving some users away.
