Venue / Sections / Learn why the sign-up modal is disabled on mobile devices

The popup in the Venue theme does not display on mobile devices by default.

The reason we have done this is because Google has started penalising sites that has intrusive popups (or interstitials as they are known) on the mobile view of the site. Here's a direct quote from Google.

“To improve the mobile search experience, after January 10, 2017, pages where content is not easily accessible to a user on the transition from the mobile search results may not rank as highly.”
