Pop-ups are typically regarded as one of the worst downsides to the internet. However, many reputable and legitimate sites utilize them for significant factors despite how spammy or obnoxious they might be.
For instance, Amazon provides conversations for customer assistance through pop-up windows, which certain browsers automatically disable. Other sites also use pop-ups to serve login forms, newsletter sign-ups, and chat support, among other things.
Pop-ups are by default blocked by the internet browser on your iPhone to prevent websites from bombarding you with advertisements and hampering your browsing experience. However, you may modify that and allow pop-ups in Chrome and Safari.
However, most importantly too, you can turn off pop-ups in Safari on your iPhone so that you won’t have to put up with these bothersome distractions any more.
Here’s how to enable or disable pop-ups on your iPhone in Chrome and Safari.
How To Enable Or Disable Pop-Ups In Your IPhone Browser
Although Safari is the iPhone’s default web browser, you may also download and use a number of alternative browsers from the App Store. Most of these browsers include a built-in pop-up blocking function that by default disables all pop-up windows.
However, you may disable this function to allow websites to show their information in pop-up windows. Therefore, the procedures you must follow may differ based on the iPhone browser you use; however, we have covered the procedures for the most widely used browsers.
Enable Or Disable Pop-Ups In Your Safari Browser On Your Iphone
It’s simple to enable pop-ups in iPhone Safari, and you can do it directly from the Settings app: Here’s what you need to do:
- Open Settings.
- Scroll down and select Safari.
- Under General, you’ll find the toggle switch for Block Pop-ups. Use it to enable or disable pop-up blocking
- Once it is off, the toggle key turns gray.
- Reopen Safari and refresh the page that asked for pop-up access. Now that Safari is open, it should be able to display the material in a new pop-up window.
Enable Or Disable Pop-Ups In Your Chrome Browser On Your Iphone
Google’s Chrome is a third-party web browser that features its own in-app settings menu. Chrome similarly disables pop-ups by default, much like Safari. But by following these procedures, you may make them active:
- Open the Chrome web browser on your iPhone.
- Tap the three dots in the bottom-right corner of the screen and select Settings. If it isn’t visible, swipe left on the quick-access tabs at the top
- Scroll down and select Content Settings.
- Tap on Block Pop-ups; on the next screen and use the toggle next to Block Pop-ups to enable or disable them.
- Tap Done in the top-right corner to save your change.
Enable Or Disable Pop-Ups In Your Firefox Browser On Your Iphone
If you’re a Firefox user, you can allow it to display pop-ups on the iPhone using these steps:
- Open Firefox.
- Tap the hamburger menu in the lower-right corner and select Settings.
- Under General, use the toggle switch for Block Pop-up Windows to enable or disable them.
Enable Or Disable Pop-Ups In Edge Browser On Your Iphone
The Microsoft Edge browser, which also by default disables all pop-ups, is highly popular among Windows users who also own iPhones. Here’s how to stop it from happening on an iPhone:
- Launch Edge on your iPhone.
- Hit the (three dots) ellipsis button at the bottom of the page and select Settings from the menu.
- Tap on Privacy & Security and select Block pop-ups on the following screen.
- Finally, use the toggle for Block Pop-ups to enable or disable them.
Enable Or Disable Pop-Ups In Opera Browser On Your Iphone
if you’re an Opera user, follow these steps to unblock pop-ups on it and allow websites to display contents in the pop-up windows:
- Open Opera.
- Tap the menu at the bottom of the screen and select Settings
- Go to Ad Blocking and use the toggle next to Block Pop-ups to enable or disable them.
Fix Issues With Pop-Ups
If you’re on a page with a pop-up or dialog that won’t go away, try these steps:
- Turn on your phone’s airplane mode.
- Quit Google Chrome.
- Close the tab with the bad pop-up or dialog box.
However, if you encounter a difficulty when browsing a website and discover you need Safari to allow pop-ups, you can immediately switch the pop-up blocker off. Some websites that open pop-ups on your desktop really operate great with mobile browsers.
Of course, once you’re done with the pop-up window, it’s a good idea to switch the pop-up blocker back on again, otherwise other websites will be allowed to open pop-ups without your consent. After all, the purpose of Apple’s pop-up blocker is to facilitate your surfing.
