If you’ve been having trouble with pop-ups on your iPhone whenever you try to browse online, you’re probably hoping for a way to block pop-ups on Safari. Luckily, your iPhone does have a way to disable pop-ups in Safari so that you don’t have to deal with these annoying interruptions anymore. Conversely, you may want a website to be pop-up enabled but realize that the pop-up blocker on your iPhone is stopping pop-ups you actually need. Let’s get started learning how to disable pop-ups and enable them again in Safari on your iPhone so you can browse the web in peace. (Note that this article doesn’t cover how to disable in-app rating requests on the iPhone; you will need to do that in the App Store settings.)
How to Block or Allow Pop-ups on Safari on Your iPhone
- Open Settings.
- Scroll down to Safari and tap it.
- Scroll down under General until you find Block Pop-ups.
- Toggle on Block Pop-ups.
That’s it! There may still be a few sneaky pop-ups that get past this setting, but taking this step should drastically reduce the amount of pop-ups you encounter while browsing the web on your iPhone. If you find that pop ups you actually want are being blocked, you can toggle Block Pop-ups back off while you’re using a particular website.
