Has anybody else noticed advertising pop-ups now appearing on chrome? it appears that chrome itself has advertising built-in to chrome now and this re-directs via the onhax.me domain to give you pop-ups based on your history and/or cookies.

 

I've installed Malwarebytes (trial) and this conforms that chrome (without extensions) is the culprit.

 

 

does anybody else have any in put into this?  i cant believe i may have to revert back to Microsoft Edge - and i never thought id say that :(

Onhax.me is to do with game cracks & hacks.

I use chrome and firefox, no issues with chrome.

Maybe you been on a dodgy site.

I dont like edge.

Chrome says the site maybe harmful before it loads so beware.

I haven't used Chrome for ages.  Gone back to Firefox, which is far better than it used to be.  Firefox is much faster as well, which is why I dumped Chrome in the first place.

Have you checked pop-up and redirects is set to blocked in content settings and have you tried ublock origin it's fantastic for blocking ads and pop ups.

Hi there,
Have used Chrome for some time and not noticed any issues. Check that DNS settings are correct and not going to some dodgy location/site.
