Why is my link 'locked'?

This can happen if you open multiple AdF.ly links too quickly.

It is to protect our advertisers and ensure the viewer actually sees their advert for 5 seconds.

If one of your visitors opens many links, one in each tab of their Internet browser - they will not see the advertising for 5 seconds. They will open the tab and click Skip Ad.

The 'locked' page protects against this behaviour.
