    What does 1Blocker: Privacy & Ad Blocker do? 1Blocker lets you block obtrusive ads, sneaky trackers, and annoying elements on sites. With 1Blocker, you’re safe online and nothing will distract you from enjoying sites. 1Blocker is very easy to use — just flip a couple of switches to start blocking ads and trackers. The app will automatically receive cloud updates to the built-in filters silently, so you don’t need to do anything. It’s as simple as setting and forgetting. 1Blocker is a fully native app designed to extend Safari naturally. It’s lightweight and doesn’t drain your battery by taking up your device’s resources. The blocking itself is super fast because Safari does it itself. We only provide filters to Safari and don’t modify webpages in any way. This vastly improves efficiency because Safari knows in advance what should be blocked. So, with 1Blocker, sites load on average 2-5x faster. It’s important to note that not all ads can be blocked though. Some sites use techniques that make it impossible for us to block their ads using currently available features for Safari content blockers. SECURE BY DESIGN 1Blocker is secure and private. It doesn’t have access to webpages and doesn’t track you in any way. We believe that privacy is not for sale. That's why we don't have an "Acceptable Ads" program. We stay independent, and the only way we make money is through direct sales of 1Blocker in the App Store to you. ADVANCED CUSTOMIZATION 1Blocker is a highly customizable content blocker, providing the possibility to create powerful custom rules. It allows you to create custom rules that block any URL by providing a regular expression or hide any element by CSS. It also lets you block cookies. (Available in Premium) AVAILABLE ON ALL DEVICES 1Blocker is available for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Your preferences and custom rules are always in sync through iCloud no matter which device you're using. FEATURED IN THE PRESS 1Blocker has been featured in TechCrunch, Lifehacker, MacStories, Macworld, and many more. FEATURES AVAILABLE FOR FREE • The ability to enable one category (for example, Block Trackers only) • Whitelisting sites right from the Safari extension • Whitelist synchronization between devices via iCloud FRIENDLY SUPPORT Send your feedback at @1BlockerApp on Twitter or via email. Your feedback is always very welcome and considered for the next release. We have been making 1Blocker since 2015. We’ve learned a lot from our customers and improved the app consistently for 5 years to suit all your needs. We believe it’s the best all-around package currently available in the App Store.

      Works perfect

      Many OTHER ad blockers have fallen into disrepair, not having been updated in ages or at least visibly updated and losing their effectiveness. This one bucks the trend and goes full throttle ad blocking with great configurability such as easy white listing. I only wish that some websites that I visit and enjoy had ads that weren’t so utterly obnoxious that they hijack my Safari with a new page to announce “You’ve own a prize! Click OK!” And then I can’t find my way back because swiping back just loads the ad again. UGH. Well, this blocker effectively stops that crud with the latest policies. I’m sure it is a full time job just keeping that up to date so the app cost is perfectly reasonable. Technically the app is above all the rest since they’ve managed to implement more than 50,000 policies using a modular system. Awesome. Now if only websites realized their ads were so obnoxious that JUST MAYBE less obnoxious ads would result in less ad blocking and more revenue.......

      Perfect for what I need

      For those having difficulty enabling the content blocking in Settings, you probably have the native content blocking in iOS enabled under the Screen Time section in Settings. Just go to Settings then Screen Time then Content Restrictions, and disable Content Restrictions *there*, under Screen Time. THEN go to Settings>Safari>Content Blockers and now, after you disabled Content Restrictions under Screen Time, you should now be able to ENable the Content Restrictions this app (and any other) provides. It’s counterintuitive yes but that’s just how it works now. Anyway after doing all that, this app works awesome. No more annoying (and arguably pornographic) “Suggested Content” at the bottom of virtually every website! Which is exactly what I was looking to do! Thank you this is such a huge help and now pages load much faster to boot!

      Paid decent app turned into subscription crippleware

      UPDATE: after running into issues following the devs’ reply below, I contacted them directly. Issue hasn’t really been fixed as such but at least most of the functionality CAN be recovered: Go to Settings -> “Premium” even if you do NOT (want to) subscribe -> almost at the bottom, left is a tiny Restore Purchase link -> click & IGNORE PURCHASE ERROR MESSAGE(!): (re)enabling more than one filter should now work anyway. Thanks to Cloud Sync (enabled by default) seems like all my connected devices have then been updated as well. Rating updated now - under the assumption that filter updates will continue to be at least included once in a while with App updates... ====== Original Review ====== I have been a paying supporter since 2015, had no issue paying for the new version in 2018, and would have happily continued with paid upgrades! But as I just installed it on a new device, I find there is no “Restore Purchase” option anywhere, and instead this has been turned into yet another endless-payments “freemium” piece of crippleware! <SNIP rant-y bit> If you want constant payments for constant filter updates (which I’m not interested in), maybe, but disabling existing paid functionality deserves a ZERO Star rating. But the cherry on this {bleep}pie is the unwanted pop-up in my (ex) paid app ASKING ME to give you this review.

      Works As Advertised Despite Steep Price

      I will admit I paid a steep price for the ad blocking app. Compared to others out there on the App Store, this is the most expensive app I purchased specifically for ad blocking purposes. This app works very well and performs as advertised. I would say this app resembles UBlock Origin, the best ad blocking internet extension on PCs and Mac. Two reasons: First, you can hide certain elements of a website you do not like. And second, there are so many filters you can enable on this app. If you're willing to spend a bit more money compared to others, you will not be disappointed. I am using this app on a 10.5'' iPad. Hopefully, this app will get updated regularly. Also and for others wondering, THIS DOES NOT BLOCK ADS IN APPS. You need to use the app called Ad Blocker to enable that.
