  • How do I turn off the Aliexpress porn?

  • @bowzee Aliexpress is not porn, but you can easily turn off suggestions if you wish.

  • I no not have anything against Aliexpress, just the porn part, particularly the fat ladies using dildos (which I assume is what is being sold). Disabling suggestions would be more of a nuking solution, like throwing away Opera altogether, which also has crossed my mind.

  • @bowzee If you think that a site suggestion is showing inappropriate content, you can report it using the Report a problem tool. Don't forget to include a screenshot of the offending image.

  • @bowzee there is an option available for you if any ads that is inappropriate then you can Report and next time that type of Ads would not be shown on your side, the second thing is that there is no any fault of Opera its all about your interest Ads.

  • I am really not going to start inspecting and disseminating Aliexpress porn, that is pretty ridiculous.

    My conclusion based on you moderators' answers is that there no such mechanism, so Opera is severely flawed and can't be used by children or for work.

  • @kaleenbhaiya32 I never had any interest in fat ladies, dildos, or any of the tons of other pornographic images that show up in Aliexpress suggestions via Opera. I did not even know that such things existed on Aliexpress until Opera presented them to my sensitive eyes.

    Your remark is offensive, if you do not know how to solve the problem, please refrain from aggravating other users or at least me.

  • @bowzee Site suggestions are based on your browsing history, so when a site is suggested for you it's because you have been to that site before or you have been to a similar one.

    Eventually there can be promoted suggestions. If, and only if, you click on one of those promoted suggestions you will be lead to the site main page and everything on that page is responsibility of the site.

    I don't think that AliExpress would show any content that could be dangerous for the site image and put them in risk of facing legal problems in their main page. At least not for a new user or for anyone not logged in and that want to see such content.

    Another offensive reply? You "think" erroneously. What is wrong with you people, why do you assume that I am stupid (which BTW I am not)? And why do you write so much nonsense?

    I am not a porn viewer, the whatever AI that is being used is obviously broken, and there is no way to filter it other than nuking Opera. It will continue to be broken because according to you guys AI never fails, it is the user's fault obviously. And posting about this in the official forum must be a behavioral problem of somebody without any better thing to do.

    I have found a similar, old, post about Opera vs. Aliexpress from 2016, also unresolved.

  • @bowzee Offensive? It just explain how things work, it's not even about you.

    As already said, you have the option to disable site suggestions. If you don't want to do that, you can report the suggestion that you think is offensive using the Report a Problem tool.

    Yes, Offensive -> I Do Not Navigate Through Porn !

    No, You Are Wrong -> Things are not working like that, that is why I am asking how to turn them off (what part of this do you not understand?)

    No, I Will Not Nuke Opera -. I prefer to get rid of the program altogether since, apparently, it does not filter or have any means to filter such things

    Additionally: why are you a moderator? Bullying users which report and try to solve problems does not qualify as moderation. Please rethink your life.

    I didn't say anything about you doing it or not, I explained how the site suggestions feature works, like I already said.

    I'm not but I will give you the benefit of the doubt. And your answer was already given, you can go to the settings and disable site suggestions or you can report the offensive suggestion using the report a problem tool in Opera for Android.

    If you want to report it here, just follow https://forums.opera.com/topic/26794/instructions-on-posting-about-problems-in-opera-for-android/1

  • I must admit, I don't see anything like that under "Suggested sites". Not even any pictures, just generic icons for the site in question. Think he might actually be seeing them in News maybe?

  • @sgunhouse I was considering such possibility. Anyway, the solution would be basically the same: disable news and/or report the offensive ad.

    Those are site suggestions and, as you can see, the only images are the sites logos. They are generated based on your browsing history.

    There may be promoted suggestions eventually but they will look exactly like those on the image. And if you click on them, the site main page will be opened.

    Those are the only suggestions that Opera shows, except for the search ones but those don't have images.

    If your problem is with those suggestions, you already know what to do and there is nothing more to be discussed here.

    If your problem is with something else, then you will have to better explain it, with education and good manners, following the instructions.
