One more thing…
We have just stopped such websites from vibrating your phone but now from downloads.
Means these websites can still show some popup for download but they will not be able to vibrate your phone anymore.
So, if any message for virus etc comes then don’t be panic, just close the tab or hit back.
Your phone doesn’t have any virus, so don’t download any app which they offer for you to download.
What To Do If Not Using Chrome Browser?
Not everyone uses the Chrome browser.
Yes, I know everyone has different preferences.
If you want to fix that you can simply turn off popups by going to browser settings, but it doesn’t block those sites from vibrating which vibrates your phone without opening a new popup. Such site uses same tab redirection which can’t be prevented.
On another hand, you can use the Mozilla Firefox web browser as it asks for permission before vibrating your phone.
That’s a quite good feature or Firefox and must be added to other browsers as well.
So you can also give a try to Mozilla Firefox if you don’t like Chrome browser.
But, I prefer Chrome. 🙂
So, guys, that’s all for now, I am sure that I have solved your problem. If you follow complete process then it will stop vibrating ads which appears suddenly with a popup and offers something for download.
