Try a different browser?

I'm on a tablet that runs Chrome

I'm getting that as well. A blog site I use had a similar issue - the owner reported that Asian hackers were using the site to mine Bitcoin.

To quote the owner of Uglyhousephotos:

1. Do not use their login to enter this site.
2. If you see weird pop-ups or links to other sites, don't do anything with them.

And not from uglyhousephotos:
3. Hopefully the owners of this site can get rid of these parasites without having to shut down the site.

Blondie makes a good point though. I could access this forum through Chrome with no issues. I only got the Watchdog thing through Firefox.

I get it on Chrome, but only on the "Board Index" link.
I am on a Win7 computer, tho, rather than a notebook or tablet.

I'm on a Windows 7 machine running IE...I don't get those pop-ups either. Maybe it's an issue with FireFox? Try using a different browser and see if that makes a difference.

I had that happen to me twice a day or so ago. I use firefox. I just closed my browser and reopened it and havent seen it since then.

Once I posted this and then hit board index to get back to the main page, it just loaded it up again. Very strange.......

I am on a MacBook using Sarfi as my browser, and I am getting the same message but only on the "board index' tab.

I'm on a Chromebook using Chrome. I get it after I login and on the board index. It's really annoying! I think I'm gonna take a break from APN for a while until it gets fixed.

Yes, I continue with this issue. It has nothing to do with which browser either. We need an answer here. On the popup if you check the site it goes to you will see where it indicates this person has some involvement with the creation of this site. Might be a spoof but either way this needs corrected asap. If not then unfortunately this site gets removed from my list.

Not sure who runs this site or why there is resistance to upgrades but it is becoming dangerous to visit here. I like to read posts here and if I did not want to visit I wouldn't. Hopefully this can be resolved soon.

NIP, do you have any response or reason things are happening like this?

I’m on an iPad but have been getting it in 2 browsers. If I manually type in http://americanpreppersnetwork.net I can normally get in most of the time.

I just have it listed at the bottom of the screen, but I have never had a pop-up window. Probably why I never noticed before:
