    App Store launches by itself
    Hi, I'm using ipad 2. When in Safari I'm getting the App Store open every hour or so, always at the World of War app, which I have never downloaded or searched for.
    Can someone please suggest a way to turn this off? All notifications are already turned off.

    If this is happening only while you are in safari, there might be a ad or something that you might be clicking without realizing.

    You can confirm this by spending time outside of Safari.

    Might be a good idea to flush/reset Safari and see if that's happy.

    It could be that you tapped on an ad for the product, and so every time you relaunch Safari the ad launches and does what ads do.

    Try QUITTING Safari by using the application switcher and swipe up to completely close the app, then re-open it and see if that solves the issue.
