Cloudflare is a widely used tool against DDoS attacks and other cyber threats.

I am getting it, too, and the biggest issue is that everytime it does it, whatever response I have typed is gone. So I have to remember to copy and save every response. Surely the site can do better for whatever security needs it has?

I stopped getting that cloudflare thing.  I did log out and sign back in, and cleared cookies.  Maybe that helped.

Kept getting the Cloud Flare message or whatever when I initially come to the site but it seems to be either resolved or intermittent. As for the pop-ups, I downloaded Norton Ad Blocker for my phone (it’s free) last year sometime and it’s been a total Godsend. No more stupid Amazon ads telling me to claim my prize. Had it not been for that, I would’ve left this site LONG ago.

This article explains the random surges in browser hijack ads https://www.wired.com/story/pop-up-mobile-ads-surge-as-sites-scramble-to-stop-them/

 

this is article explains a DDoS attack (Distrubuted Denial of Service). The Cloudflare message is a way to protect the whole Weddingbee site from a DDoS attack, by slowing incoming traffic down and making sure there is a real browser at the other end of the access attempt, rather than a script or code that a hacker would use, https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/cyberpedia/what-is-a-ddos-attack

 

TL;DR; get an ad blocker and be patient. All of this is everyday stuff on the internet.
