Recently, upon accessing a site via a non HTTPS connection, I have had an intrusive malware-like pop up appear, 2 or 3 times now, saying that our TV equipment is oudated and needs to be upgraded, which is a crock, since it works fine. Cease these invasive pop ups immediately or we will be switching to Verizon. Especially if you reply with some automated BS and lock the topic.
It may not be Cox but like you hinted...malware.
Malwarebytes is a reputable, free program. Adblock Plus is also a good browser extension.
I use UBlock Origin and MBAM Premium. These popups are legit and other people have complained about them in the past.
I searched 1 (800) 560-8131 and nothing Cox-related results. I'm not testing the URL.
Does UBlock allow you to right-click the pop-up to block?
Haven't tried, but yes, it should be able to.
@JWH1995, this is a valid pop-up that customers receive when they are advised to upgrade their equipment. Can you please reach out to us on Twitter at @CoxHelp, visit us on Facebook, or at firstname.lastname@example.org? We'd like to look at your account services in greater detail. -Kevin M.
