Well, the title says it all. I use vivaldi browser for android. tried to find the answer in search engine, but came up with nothing. Hopefully there are some techs out there who know how to stop this.

Description: Every time I want to check out something on lazada, when i go to their website, automatically google play opens up en prompts me to download the lazada app. Which I do not want to do. Fiddled with settings in my phone (xiaomi), without success. 

anyone know how to prevent this?

I am not a techy, but what I do to get rid of those annoying pop-ups is to open Chrome browser and click on the 3 dots, click on 'site settings' and then disable 'JavaScript.' An added bonus is you can read the daily papers without subscribing. Works for me anyway, good luck.

Didn't know that about newspapers, thanks a lot.

I also used to get plagued with 'weaveradrenaline.com' constantly diverted my browser to Lazada.

Try this procedure. It seems to still be valid for my Vivo phone which runs Android 11.

Thanks, always found it annoying when inadvertently browsing items f/s on my tablet, usually when out and wishing to compare ticket prices with online.  Good fix. 👍

Thx for the input,

This worked for my pc in my vivaldi browser as an extention (vivaldi is based on chrome). On my phone it didn't work, but I tried the adblock on google play, which is a stand-alone app, and that keeps the lazada site nicely IN the browser 😀.

Ran brave before. It is a good browser, it is just that vivaldi is a lot better with bookmarks and that was my reason for the switch.
