Description

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.

FEATURES

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.

EFFICIENT BLOCKING

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.

UNLIMITED BLOCKERS

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.

What's New

Version 1.4.1

Hello again, friends! This update is focused on making sure 1Blocker looks great on the new iPhone X.

By popular request, 1Blocker now blocks cryptocurrency mining scripts which significantly reduce battery life by executing code in background on your device. Recent reports found out that thousands of websites contain these mining scripts and we recommend enabling Block Trackers category in 1Blocker to ensure your device is not affected.

As usual, this version also contains an updated blocker list with fixes and improvements for issues on some websites you've reported. Make sure to manually launch the app after updating to the latest version to have new rules applied in Safari.

If something’s not working right, you have an idea you’d like to share, or you just want to say hello, contact us anytime on Twitter at @1BlockerApp.

If you enjoy using 1Blocker, please leave a nice review here on the App Store. We read everything and it means a world to us. Thank you!

😑Premium Doesn’t Block 3rd Pty Cookies

Tekiebelu

I used the free version of the app and was pleased with the ad blocking for the most part but I was irritated by constantly having to delete 3rd party cookies in website data. I saw that the premium version allowed blocking of 3rd party cookies so I purchased it. As a side note, it wouldn’t have cost me anything if iOS still allowed us to block 3rd party cookies specifically (like we could before) rather than ALL cookies which, of course, affects logging into accounts 🤬😡❌.

Anyway, after enabling the option in 1Blocker, I noticed I was still getting the exact same 3rd party cookies showing up in website data as before. I checked the app and their website for any info related to my issue and found nothing. They only offer two methods of contacting them that I found: email and Twitter. I used both and got no reply. Almost every option in Apple’s “report a problem” menu just redirected me to the app developer. I finally chose an option that would prompt an Apple representative to contact me and only then was I able to explain that the app developers were unresponsive and I couldn’t get the app to function as described. I was issued a refund and am happy to go back to the free version while continuing to search for an app that will block 3rd party cookies.

1Blocker is is almost perfect

mat7h3w

1Blocker is almost perfect, and the inclusion of https is a nice addition. Unfortunately, and this is Apple’s fault, not 1Blocker’s fault. Apple still refuses to allow hosts file access, unless you are jail broken. It is truly sad. 1Blocker should be able to block ads on all browsers, not just Safari. It should be able to do the same for ads inside apps and games. If anyone wants blame to go anywhere, it is with Apple, not the developer. It both saddens me, and sickens me, that the company that used to stand for something good, and respectable. Now, much like many of the devs on the App Store, would prefer to sell our private user data, like we are a side of beef at a cattle auction. Google is just as guilty as Apple is. However, despite the sheer amount of trash on the Google Play Store, at least Google makes rooting is. I highly suggest if you are on a jailed device.

Best FREE Adblocker, period.

You get to enable the largest list of Adblock URLs for free, with no nagging, no ads, no interruptions, nothing. Again, for free we the full Adblock list of 40,546 rules with NO strings attached.

There are many extra toggle-able features that are optional and generally useful only fig you have a specific purpose for them. For $5, they all get unlocked. No price-gouging or exploitative tiers of “special deal!” packages.

This filter obviously only works in Safari, due to the Apple/iOS “walled garden” policy crap, but within Safari it works perfectly. It’s clear from the author’s design choices that he’s ungreedy and not in this for a lazy cash grab. That was enough to make me sit down and add this positive review to the list.
