Description:

Block ads, trackers, and any annoying web content. Based on new lightning fast native Content Blocking API, it doesn’t slow down Safari and can't know which websites you visit. We are supported entirely by our users, there’s no “acceptable ads” program.

WHAT YOU GET

1Blocker is the fastest & most powerful Safari content blocker. With over 40 000 preinstalled blockers, it's highly configurable.

• Simply tap on any webpage element — like sidebar, site logo or subscription box — to hide it using our Safari extension.
• Quickly whitelist websites you love.
• All your blocking preferences are automatically synced over iCloud.
• Create your own custom blocker rules (hide page elements, block sites, and cookies).

LOVED BY CUSTOMERS

1Blocker is a leading content blocker for iOS and macOS. It has been featured in The New York Times, TechCrunch, LifeHacker, and many more. What our customers say:

• “Does exactly what you want it to do, and the customer support is fantastic. Highly recommended.” — Blocky McBlockerson
• “The author put a lot of hard work into creating 1Blocker, and it really shows. I’m using it on both my Mac and my iPhone, and I’m very satisfied.” — Artiste212
• “If you’re on the fence about trying this adblocker I wholeheartedly recommend you give it a try! Definitely worth it!” — ChronicLynx

EFFICIENT BLOCKING

While most other extensions block content by filtering elements of already downloaded page, 1Blocker uses modern WebKit blocking technology to tell Safari in advance what should be blocked. This vastly improves efficiency and saves battery life.

PROTECTS YOUR PRIVACY

1Blocker is not a VPN or proxy server, it can't see what web pages you visit and doesn't expose your privacy.

We are fully supported by our users — we don't make deals with advertisers or sell your data to publishers.

Hello again, dear customer! In this update, we're excited to finally release a new feature which makes blocking annoying content on websites really easy. Right in 1Blocker Safari extension, you can now simply tap on any page element — like sidebar, site logo or subscription box — to hide it.

- Links on Macworld can now be accessed as normal.

For the rest of us - I bought 1Blocker for iOS long ago. I it has worked perfect ever since. But I did not knew it had a Mac couterpart. So, when I heard about it, I bought it inmediatle. This app is a blocker for all of us that we do not know much about blockers, trackers, etc. It is easy to use and iCloud sync is perfect. I did my first custom rule on a site I visit everyday, not realizing I could block parts of it, whitout compromising what I do need to get from it. Amazing! This app Is awesome. Go buy, NOW!

Review by Vulgar demos

Still not as good as the (free) alternatives - I tested this app using several notorious websites. So far: - 1Blocker is worse than the free extension Ghostery. - 1Blocker is worse than the free extension Adguard Adblocker. By “worse” I mean that it eliminated maybe 20% of the ads while the others, from what I can tell, eliminated 100%. So: worth the money? No, and probably not even worth installing if it were free. But hopefully we’ll see improvements over time. Let’s hope 1Blocker is using our money to advance its capabilities.

not easy to use - I could not find any information on how to use this and all I wanted to do was block on single site. It did not work.

Best in Class - This is a solid app and by far the most customizable ad blocker I have seen—with great support. Every time I send these guys a question I get a swift, detailed, and helpful reply. Be aware that due to Apple's laudable privacy protections, the API they provide imposes some limitations on how ad blockers can detect and block ads; however, 1Blocker seems to work hard to get as much out of this API as possible. You would be hard-pressed to find a better ad-blocking & privacy tool.

Review by mcs7474

Works half the time - I am still getting tons of ads. It works one day, and then doesnt work the next. It can’t block youtube and that was the reason I had bought it. Waste of money. Also, there isn’t a lot of information online about this product (that should have been a hint to stay away).

Review by AVonGauss

Useful - The blocker is very useful and configurablel, especially with the ability to sync configuration via iCloud to other Macs and iOS devices. What I would like to see though is the concept of a blacklist mode that would allow ads (aka "Block Ads" rules not applied) unless a website is on the blacklist - ideally other rule sets such as “Block Trackers” would still apply. I’m probably in the minority for this desire, but this way I can go ahead and give all sites the benefit of the doubt until they annoy me which if I have to continue using the site for some reason I can add the site to the blacklist rather than attempting to whitelist all sites.
