Fast and secure Safari content blocker that improves browsing experience by blocking unwanted content and protecting you from trackers.
We are legit, deeply care about users’ privacy, can’t track and see what sites you visit.
We think 1Blocker is 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 (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 120,000 rules.
• Regional adblock rules for specific countries.
• User-friendly editor 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.
- 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 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 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 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 1M CUSTOMERS
1Blocker has been featured in The New York Times, TechCrunch, Lifehacker and many more.

• The best adblock for iPhone. - Lifehacker
WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU
Send your feedback at @1BlockerApp on Twitter.
Our mission is to give you all the tools to make Safari browsing fast, safe and productive for you.
Even when we’re quiet there are many things moving and changing. Thank you for being so patient.
This update adds partial whitelist — a feature many of you waited for a long time. It allows you to configure each blocking category for a specific site and do things like unblock comments and ads for a site, but leave trackers and other content blocked. This feature was asked by many advanced users and it adds further flexibility to the app.
Speaking of whitelist, it is much faster now to add a site to the list (up to 25% faster in some cases).
Of course, we also updated our ruleset and fixed a ton of sites. Thanks for all the reports you sent us!
Last but not least, this update contains many tweaks that make the experience so much better.
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!
Ratings and Reviews
Tons of customizability if you want it. If you don’t, it’ll still easily be the best ad blocker out there; right out of the box. Worth every penny and an incredible value.
Rough around the edges
Grouping comments and social is a terrible idea. I hope they’re separated in a future update.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
