Ad pop ups WHILE writing an email

Ad pop ups WHILE writing an email

I understand pop ups..What I don't understand is a recent pop up that opens IN the browser/page I am currently using...and when I back out of it, the email I am working on is gone. So frustrating.  It has happened 3 times in the last month, so it's not an everyday thing...

 

Has this happened to anyone else?  

 

Will an ad blocker app take care of it?  (The ad blockerf or google chrome app says it wants access to all of my data...is this normal?)

Re: Ad pop ups WHILE writing an email

You can use an app blocker called Ad Block Plus. The part of having your data, is pretty normal on apps you get. For example installing an app on your smartphone. Get Ad Block Plus on your browser, and it won't ask you about getting your info or data. It just installs and you're good to go.
