    It seems that various elements I click on open new tabs to some really weird click ads and online dating sites.

    It's an issue on my end, but I really don't know what's causing it to happen.

    It's happening on my iPad btw.

    Any suggestions?

    Throw your iPad in the trash...

    Browse with anything else.

    In all seriousness @oman , I'm not very versed on any of the Apple products. I am sure someone who has more info will be able to help you out.

    Sounds like 3rd party redirects. Disable redirects in your browsers' settings.

    Not sure how it works on Apple but if the browser allows any kind of extension/plug-in I would be checking there- especially if the browsers are synced between mobile and desktop. I know on Chrome there are bad extensions that can cause what you are seeing.
