    Congratulations! I'm just kidding, but that's pretty strange. Is it the first time it happened? I would just ignore it, or bring it to the phone store and ask the "experts".

      That's what I always do when I come across this when surfing elsewhere. I have the feeling that this has been a Google or Chrome problem. You'll get a run on this pop up for awhile, then they seem to stop when Google catches up with them. A month or two later it starts up again. It seems to happen on the less secure sites. Never had it happen on here before, just saying.

      These guys can be tricky. You'll get the base code through one of those less secure sites, but it wont be activated until you go to some other site. They do this so its harder to figure out where it came from.

        iPad struggles to open FBBO. Every time. Other sites open with ease. Very slow if at all. All week.

        I can remember when the internet was being released (yes I'm that old) and the developers wanted more time to perfect the security part of the programming. Ever who was involved with the release said it had to be done on a certain date and it was, without the added security. Don't know just how true that story was but it makes you wonder.

        When I was useing Sprint for my Android, this Pop-up would crash my phone and I would have to go to the store for a new one!

              My Android-based phone (Verizon "service" - and I use that term loosely), along with the PC's (Windows10) here at HQ, all are fine with the server move.
              Not sayin' anything for some others with issues - just making a suggestion:
