Hmm.

I think that is advertising. I have just been into my Tapatalk control panel thingy and although I had turned the ads off, a new "feature" of promoted stories was on. And has been on for a while now, it is earning me about 12p a month.

I have switched the "feature" off, so if that was it then it should now be gone.

Well, that's all a bit odd.

You turn off the feature and press save. It says "success".

You navigate back to the page and it's on again! I'll have to raise a ticket with Tapatalk to get this fixed, but in the mean time rest assured it's not a virus just a cheesy ad.

It's a Tapatalk ad which I can't turn off because their off switch is broken.

When their support people look at it, I guess it will vanish.
