Yahoo.com news stories keep getting redirected to rewards.amazon.com-rewards only happens on Yahoo, is annoying as heck.

I've uninstalled any recent apps, tried demands and avg and both detect nothing, tried deleting browser cache but to no avail.

My current solution is just not to use Yahoo at all as it happens on no other site. Any ideas?

Have you checked your Wifi DNS settings so you don't have any malicious DNS set?

Okay, and which browser are you using? (Chrome, default Samsung browser, ...)
I've tried it win both.

Just tried returning to Yahoo with both browsers and Wi-Fi on and on 4g. Can no longer replicate it. Could it have been something on Yahoo rather than my phone? I've never experienced it on any other site.

I spoke too soon. Just managed to get it again.....
Strange. If possible, try with another phone/tablet. The last cause I can imagine is if you have any addons/extensions to your browsers if you have tried both browsers and it happens on both of them. Otherwise I believe the issue is on Yahoo rather than your phone.

That's the conclusion I'm coming to too. Haven't another tablet/phone to try it on. Will check to see if there are any rogue extensions, thanks for taking the time to advise me.

No problem, hope you find a solution or hope Yahoo fixes it if it was their fault.

Seems very much like something to do with yahoo, I also get this problem only on Yahoo, which itself has gone down hill over last couple of years, think time to just stop using it all together.

Hi, unfortunately I get the same issue when I use ebay on Chrome. I'm on a Samsung s4 and this started a couple of weeks back. I've done a factory reset but today it started again after using ebay for a while. It's not the app, it's directly on Chrone. I've skanned the mobile but there's no virus. It's very upsetting though as I worry my privacy is at risk. What can I do?

Perhaps a factory reset is not enough.Try a hard reset.Don't forget to backup your data
