Why am I getting spam pop-ups on MyFitnessPal on iOSv10.2.1? artimuspryme — Feb 17, 2017 11:00AM PST

For the last several days I've been getting spam pop-ups on MyFitnessPal on my iPhone 7 Plus (running iOSv10.2.1). It happens when I'm searching for a food to track, and sometimes I'm even immediately redirected to a webpage in Safari by whatever is taking over my iPhone through MFP. This is NOT OK!!!

I am having the same issue. I have had two separate issues with two distinct results. The first was a redirect to a safari site. The second was a dialogue box that prompted me to update my iphone. I agree that this is not ok.

Thank you for taking the time to post in the MyFitnessPal support center and my deepest apologies for this. We’re working hard to figure out which ad network is sending these ads, and hope to have them removed ASAP.

Again our apologies.
