Not all pop-ups are malicious. A necessary pop-up window may appear when you try to perform a financial transaction or download a critical file. Since not all websites are the same, this method is effective on a case-by-case basis even if most up-to-date sites rarely if ever use pop-ups.
The pop-up blockers built into the three most popular mobile browsers are easy to disable temporarily if you run into a website that insists on you accepting a pop-up before you can continue with a crucial process.
This is especially true for iOS devices, as the Settings menu is always within reach with only a couple of taps. There are still some websites that are only compatible with specific browsers, such as Google Chrome, thus it’s a good idea to test the same pages in many browsers. Again, each website is slightly different, so you may need to explore before you obtain results, though this is rare.
Remember that once you’ve completed your current task, you should turn on pop-up blocking again in your preferred browser. Malware can infect your computer from anywhere on the web, even well-known and frequently visited sites. It’s true even for Apple goods, you’ve guessed correctly.

- The Settings app can be accessed from the main menu of an iOS device.
- The Safari menu can be accessed by scrolling to the very bottom of the Settings panel.
Chose the “Safari” option.
- Safari’s pop-up blocker can be turned on and off at any moment from the Safari menu by toggling the switch next to “Block Pop-ups.”
- Get back to Safari; the pop-up window you were trying to view earlier should now load properly.
- After you’ve finished with the problematic page and are ready to close Safari, you may re-enable the pop-up blocker by doing steps 1 through 4.
Since this solution is self-contained, you may need to investigate more if you continue to experience surfing issues due to a non-responsive site. Start by reading through the iOS Safari manual from Apple.
