Question Malware?

I tried visiting TBH on my phone (Android) this morning and it takes me instead to a **** site. I don't do **** so I don't know how this problem came about. I tried doing a search online and kept suggestions of malware. Is that a thing on the phone? I guess I'm naive but I thought that was just computers. How do I fix this? Any suggestions?

So it must be the google AMP page version only? Using mobile Brave browser, requesting either the desktop or mobile site, it loads fine here.

I'm on my android phone using Tapatalk and haven't had any issues. I have also ran Norton anti-virus from day one. Do you have anti-virus software on your phone?

It works fine on tapatalk. But if you Google search it or open up chrome and try then it doesn't work.

It's weird, if I just use Google I get all kinds of different pages, no Russian ones. If I open up chrome and search the I get a dirty site.

I've had the same issue while using the browser on the green screen on my phone. Tapatalk worked fine on my droid.

I couldn't tell what type of site it was and backed out immediately as it looked sketchy.

Question

So I cleared cache and disabled java script and can not get to TBH on my phone. Does that mean I have to leave java script off permanently?

I only use tapatalk to access TBH and haven't had any issues with redirects or access. I am having a problem with tapatalk not updating my "subscribed" threads tab. Anyone else have this problem? I uninstalled and reinstalled the App but still no help.

Was hoping to get a update on fixing the problem by the powers to be.
Know they are working on it. If I use desktop version on my phone it works fine but messes up all of other sites. Waiting on a update from the tbh clan.
