Optimized for Safari, 1Blocker improves your browsing experience by blocking ads, trackers and other annoying webpage elements, such as popups, persistent cookie consent dialogs, and invasive newsletter signup prompts.
1Blocker makes sites load on average of 50% faster. It’s very secure by design — we can’t track and see webpages you visit.
We think 1Blocker is the best trusted content blocker for iOS and an essential app for anyone who uses Safari.
WHAT IS NEW IN 1BLOCKER X
1Blocker X is a complete overhaul of the original and widely popular 1Blocker Legacy (over 1.2 million downloads), thoughtfully redesigned with a perfect balance between simplicity and power. It was rewritten from scratch and comes with a new enhanced list of filters.
• The first Safari content blocker with over 115,000 rules.
• Regional adblock rules for specific countries.
• User-friendly editors to create your own custom rules.
• Touch ID / Face ID protection.
• Completely new design.
WHY DO YOU NEED 1BLOCKER
- Block annoying ads (adblock) -
Ads have become a total disaster on many sites by ruining the browsing experience. No one likes to see ads that pop over the entire screen.
- Sites load faster -
Independent tests by Wirecutter, NY Times, and BrooksReview confirm that 1Blocker cuts data loaded by sites on average by over 50%.
- Protect yourself online -
Many corporations track your behavior and what sites you visit. Online ads are not safe and may serve you malware, even on major sites.
- Improve your productivity -
Besides ads, webpages often contain distracting elements (like “You Might Also Like” boxes) that disturb your workflow and productivity.
HOW IS 1BLOCKER BETTER THAN OTHERS
We believe 1Blocker is better than anything else available. Here is why:
• We don’t make deals with advertisers.
• We don’t see webpages you visit.
• We can’t track you and have no customer data to sell.
• We are bootstrapped and self-funded. No investors. Made by a tiny two-person team.
While most other adblock apps block content by filtering elements of an already downloaded page, 1Blocker uses native Safari content blocker technology (API) to tell Safari in advance what should be blocked. This vastly improves efficiency, doesn’t slow down Safari, and saves battery life.
LOVED BY OVER 1 MILLION CUSTOMERS
1Blocker has been featured in The New York Times, TechCrunch, Lifehacker and many more.

Ratings and Reviews
Best ad blocker for iOS
This ad blocker has lots of easy to use customization and a very wide range of blocking abilities. It was also able to import my (original) 1Blocker custom rules automatically via iCloud.
The only issue I have come across so far is the inability to save new custom rules for blocking specific websites (The “save” button is greyed out!!). However, based on my previous 2 years experience using the (original) 1Blocker, I trust that the developer will fix this soon.
Great update to a great app
I have been a long time 1Blocker premium user and was more than willing to support the developer with this new version which looks to have taken a lot of work. It works great, even better than before.
Not sure what the 1 star review guy has set wrong but it’s not the app at fault.
Surfing the web is just so much more painless with 1Blocker!
It actually works!!
I have Blocker legacy (and paid for the upgrade) and I did get fed up with adverts still coming through now and then, and entering my magazine puzzles weekly I would be bombarded with ads!!! After hesitating to spend $8 on an another blocker I decided I'll give it a go anyway and it's so much faster and I don't regret it at all!!!! Thanks Blocker Team ☺️
