Now when I browse the web on my iPhone 5, every now and then, a pop comes up called adtrack.king.com taking me to some game in the App Store. How do I stop this?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.2

    I'm having the same problem. Mine keeps sending me to the candy crush saga app. I can't find any solution or help. I have even restored my phone twice, second time started it as a new phone and still have this problem. If I don't find a solution soon my next step is to jailbreak and seek a solution that way.

    Just found this and so far seems to be working....fingers crossed! Go to your settings app, go to General, then click About, scroll down to bottom and click on Limit Ad Tracking, click the red reset button and click the off switch to On! See if it works for you as well?

    Disregard I was wrong! :(

    Okay, next solution. Go into settings, click general, scroll down to bottom, click reset, and then click reset all settings. This does not erase anything. So far I have not had any more candy crush saga problems and I have spent the last six hours trying to get the dam candy crush to happen again, but it has'nt. I'm not sure what app you were sent to each time, but mine was candy crush saga and I am positive I have beat it! I also erased all the cookies & data and history in safari before and after, but not sure if it had any significance. Let me know if this helps.

    Do you have any games such as Icomania (or anything by games for friends GmbH)?


    I had this pop up for a few weeks and the only thing that changed on my phone was that I had installed icomania. I haven't done a clear cache, history or anything. After two weeks, i'd had enough so tried deleting icomania. I haven't had the pop up since. That was 4 weeks ago.


    Thinking it was coincidence, I installed icomania last week and the pop up was back. Deleted it again two days later and its gone.

    Just found this thread.


    I am having the adtrack.king.com pop up constantly (every 1 - 5 minutes) with candy crusher when I am viewing web-sites in safari.


    It ruins things when I watch video and stream audio, it shuts down what I am watching or listening to and goes to candy crusher saga in app store.


    this is an absolute PITA.

    My wife was/is having a similar problem with her iPad, a small box saying:



    Top Apple games

    Free download now, the last day!


    I think I've got rid of it by 'Resetting All' in the Settings-General bit of the menu.


    It took over the App Store completely too!
