As long as you didn't verify anything via phone i don't think a simple pop up could be dangerous. I haven't seen it tho and usually don't answer these

I have been checking into the forum a lot more than usual lately because I am nursing s sick relative, and I have seen no survey. I would never respond to one that wss not forum related. My best guess is that it wss some kind of advertising gimmick and that your email might now become flooded with even more junk emails. Please be careful who you give any information to. With things like identity fraud and computer viruses you ca't be too csreful. A free gift might be a lure, but I always feel that if I don't go online to seek out an item I want, I'm not going to divulge my informstion to get it as a "free gift". I hope no harm results.

Run a trusted anti malware programme like Malwarebytes and install a free pop up blocker.

Do you use Google Chrome? You could add an extensions called Adblock.
