I am getting them on the iPad app, which just updated itself, but not on the web. I won't be using the app until this is corrected.

I'm seeing a change but no pop ups on my iPad. The change I'm seeing are the two ads are much less noticeable.

I get 6 pop ups every time I open the app. I also see pictures on the threads. I'm tired of looking at a woman's chest with Raiders logo pasties. How do I get such nonsense to go away?

You might try deleting and reloading the app. Also - make sure you are logged in - you'll see fewer ads

Try deleting the app, rebooting your device and then reloading the app - see if that helps.

Strangely, I've never seen a popup in the ER app on either my iPhone or my iPad.

I have no problems with pop ups.. I have no idea if this helps but under the iPad general settings then privacy, then advertising (way at the bottom) then...limit ad tracking and also a reset and also ad information. I have mine set to limit advertising

I think I got rid of the boob lady picture! On the home page of this app...go to. Menu at the top of the page (the 3 bars) go to settings and turn off "image preview"
