Every time I change page on here I get a notification asking me if I want to try tapatalk, it's as irritating as fook, how do I turn it off?

Ok, think I have sorted it. Allowed all cookies for a min, then turned them back off, doesn't appear anymore :)

Hmmm,
It sucks donkey IMHO.

A few of the forums I frequent have removed it due to security issues recently.

To be fair it may be due to lax admin or php updates.

I don't honestly know as a non-php tech.

It appears to be an issue with tapatalk allowing "in app registration" which could allow spam bots in.

There has been a deluge of account signups of late. Fortunately they are caught by the manual authorisation process.

No idea, never used it, I think it makes forums easier to use from mobile phones. If you block all cookies the tapatalk request keeps coming up, but if you allow cookies for a second and reject a tapatalk request then reblock cookies then the requests stop....thank god.

Yeah I don't bother with it either, just read the forum on my PC or iPad.

As much as I love you guys, I don't need you with me wherever I go :D

Don't have a smart phone, bloody things, so many people seem permanently attached to them, unable to put them down for any reason, should ban them. A whole generation of kids will grow up not being able to communicate face to face with people, and probably no imagination........can you tell they are a sore point :)

I use it all the time and think it is great as you can have all your forums in one place/app, and has loads of features once you have learnt how to use it :-)

Not heard of any of security issues though?
