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.

Release Notes:

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.

Customizing your favorite websites has never been easier.

Moreover, there are a few subtle improvements throughout the app which make the experience of using 1Blocker so much better. For example, you can now search rules not only by their name, but also by domains to which they are applied.

- Links on Macworld can now be accessed as normal.
- Comments on Trello and Airbnb are no longer blocked.

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 maxim_b

Poor - Doesn’t work well at all: - Button doesn’t show in Safari half the time, for no good reason; required browser restart to get it back - Many ads still get through, even though marked as disabled - Breaks many sites, especially formatting - Whitelisting is a clunky, long process Overall, there are much better alternatives. I’ve very disapinted in the app after reading so many positive reviews.

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 poikkeus1

Top class blocker - Not all “blockers” are created equal…and there’s virtually no guarantee that a product will work. I’ve had a chance to see how iBlocker works on iOS, and I was instantly sold; the performance difference alone was quantifiable and convincing. The speed differences on MacOS are subtler, since the Mac already does a good job filtering traffic that could harm your computer. Since iBlociker is seriously configurable, you can see how many filters are built in to stop third party traffic. But the difference is clear on start-up alone. Without 1Blocker, there was an obvious slowdown on my already fast machine; with 1Blocker, the slowdown was gone. It’s really doing its job. The real clincher was the ability to configure. If you want to block a single site, or a class of sites, you can do it.
