Pop-up ads, sashay away.

Since they were unleashed on the web, pop-up windows have not only been annoying users, but they have also been a huge nightmare for digital security. Most people know better than to click on suspicious looking pop-ups, but some of them can be sneaky.

But now, we have some essential security advice from an unlikely source: RuPaul.

RuPaul tweeted this key advice on Thursday, giving yet another gift to the world:

Even an Adobe employee chimed in:

Mashable‘s own IT Hero, Norman Chen says “Google chrome has flash built-in so you just need to make sure your chrome is up to date.”

Thanks, RuPaul!
