This morning whilst doing my Welsh lesson I clicked on an ad which said something along the lines of, 'English speakers needed' and implied you could earn money from home. This then directs you to a supposed article from the Mirror regarding a successful Dragon's Den business involving investment in Bitcoin. It looks quite convincing, but with all things which appear too good to be true, it very definitely is - as usual, it's a scam. What really annoys me is that although it's very easy to find this information out with a little research, Duolingo have either not bothered to do this or even worse, have chosen to ignore it. Come on Duolingo, your site is fabulous, you can do without this kind of potentially very harmful kind of income!
Duolingo does not hand pick the advertisements that get shown in the app. You can report inappropriate ads here: https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004087366-How-do-I-report-an-ad-
Google decides what ads to put based on your interests. Duolingo doesn't do anything except let the ads be there
Yes I stand corrected and have read the reply from the moderator. It's a big problem, but surely the moderators should be keeping a close eye on their own site, or am I missing something? Do different people get different ads popping up on their devices?
