Hi,

are you sure to have Adblock Plus for iOS (or Adblock Browser) installed on your device and not another similar app?

This is also happening to me, just the last couple of days, and it happens on every site/page I open, sometimes more than once on the same page.

Maybe it's an attempt to detect the popular fakeVPN style adblock apps, from before the Adblock Browser and ABP for iOS existed.

Hey rwcecm!

Thanks for reaching out to us.
Could you provide the ABP version, iOS version and the device you are using?
We will try to run some tests and help you out.

I'm having this pop-up problem too. Could this have anything to do with an expired Sigining Certificate issued by RapidSSL CA
http://www.adblOck.com on September 13, 2015?

OK..I deleted and reinstall my adblock profile. no expired certificates, etc..Shut down and rebooted iPad Air IOS 9.2.1
I'm STILL getting popup!

That site has nothing to do with ABP.

Hey!

What we need to know is the ABB version, device type affected and which websites this occur on.
We need to know a website for us to actually look at it. Once we have all of that, we can run some tests and check it out.

Looking forward to receiving the details in order to investigate the issue.

Cheers,
