Was looking on very reputable website for kids sports.

Clicked on what I thought was an ad and got porn. Finally had to delete Teamsnap app to get rid of it.

How could this happen on a website?

You'll want to install a safari content filter / content blocker to prevent advertisements and/or javascript from sites that are advertisement supported and possibly pay for access if they detect ad blockers.

I have a high opinion of both the 1Blocker and Adamant for iOS and you could use one or the other or both depending on your needs.

I would say the vast, vast majority of hijacked web sessions is advertising related. Compromising them is so easy for people with a little money and a lot to gain for forcing people to see content they didn't expect on a site.

  • Thank you. How do I obtain a content filter? – Pat Mar 15 '18 at 1:26
