When I click on the [more] button on the home page for more forum posts, it takes me to the Southwest Airlines wifi login page.  I was on Southwest two weeks ago.  But, I'm nowhere near anything Southwest now.  I deleted Southwest from my preferred networks, but no change.  Every other button works fine.  Ideas?

I just clicked on "More" on my phone at the full website without a problem.

Is it happening on your phone or your laptop?

Not happening for me.

Run your antivirus program. Something's latched on to your browser.

I'm sure it's only happening to me.  It's on my Mac.  It works fine on my phone.  Seems like something weird happened when I used southwest' wifi.

Have you:

* cleared your browsing history

* cleared your browser cache and all cookies

* gone to your wifi settings and told it to forget the Southwest Airlines network

 Thanks Mark. Simply clearing my history did the trick.

Use a VPN for creating a proxy tunnel when you connect to the public internet from your wifi connection. You can also add a browser firewall or install an antivirus with a powerful firewall like K7 Antivirus. Clearing your cookies might also help.
