The most powerful and the fastest content blocker, used by over a million people. Lifehacker titled it as The Best Ad Blocker. Essential app for anyone who uses Safari.
Unlike other adblock apps, we can't see what sites you visit and track you. That’s because 1Blocker is a native Safari content blocker, not a shady VPN server. We are supported entirely by our users, there’s no “acceptable ads” program.
LOVED BY CUSTOMERS
1Blocker made MacStories’ list of Must-Have Apps 2015 Edition. It has been also featured in The New York Times, TechCrunch, and many more.
• “I like 1Blocker enough that I’ve stopped thinking about blockers.” - John Gruber, Daring Fireball.
• “Must have app for all iOS users.”
• “Does exactly what you want it to do, and the customer support is fantastic. Highly recommended ad blocker.”
WHY DO YOU NEED 1BLOCKER
- Block annoying ads (adblock) -
Ads have become a total disaster on websites by ruining the browsing experience. No one likes to see ads that pop over the entire screen.
- Save battery, data and time -
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 like Forbes and Yahoo.
- Improve your productivity -
Besides ads, webpages often contain distracting elements (like “You Might Also Like” and subscription boxes) that disturb your work flow and productivity.
1Blocker comes with almost 50 000 built-in blocker rules. It is very configurable.
• Block ads, trackers and other annoyances. Make browsing over 2x faster.
• Tap to hide any annoying content with our visual editor.
• Support sites you love by whitelisting them.
• Create your own custom blocker rules (hide elements, block sites and cookies).
• All your settings are synced over iCloud.
1Blocker is also available in the Mac App Store.
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 and technically can’t track our users.
• We 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.
The free version of 1Blocker allows one group of blocker rules (e.g. "Block Ads" or "Block Trackers") to be used at the same time. So if you just want to use adblock, you can do that without upgrading to Premium. To be able to activate multiple groups of blockers simultaneously, in-app purchase is required.

Ratings and Reviews
Issue with forum pages disappearing when scrolling down
Been suffering this for ages, like more than a year, wasn’t until I turned off 1 blocker I realised it was the sole cause of my problem.
Scrolling down a forum page, I would get to a point where the whole screen goes blank, refreshing the page brings it back but same thing happens when I scroll down. Tried AdBlock Plus and didn’t happen, so issue is with 1 blocker app. Affects all forum pages, despite there being maybe 5+ pages still to read, once screen goes blank only course of action is to refresh. Happens on Safari and Chrome, running latest iOS but been doing it on previous versions as well as previous iPhone 6+.
Good app, very inclusive
This is a great app, and can block almost anything! This app pretty much gives you everything you could imagine an ad blocker doing. I love the anti-track features, I am big on privacy myself and the anti-ad-blocker feature, so that 1Blocker actually works. I haven’t tested the anti-ad feature yet but I trust it works.
My one nag is that 1Blocker only lets you use one feature at a time unless you pay £5, could you please make it three features at a time or something? Also, I’m wondering whether there is some monthly cost or something or is it a one time payment?
Thank you developers, you've done a good job 👍👏
Latest version loses the in app purchase (bug fixed)
I've previously bought the in app purchase to upgrade to premium, and this version had lost this upgrade. Clicking on the restore previous purchases link states that it has restored my purchase but doesn't actually do anything (is still limited to the number of blockers I can use)
Update: bug fixed and upgrade applied again. Working as well as before. Was concerned that the rename of the app to "1Blocker Legacy" meant that the app would no longer be updated
That was a bug. I’m so sorry about that. 😞
1Blocker v1.4.3 fixes restoring purchase bug. Please update the app through the App Store.
