This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.

What's New in 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!
Great as always!
1Blocker is the only content blocker you need! It is very frequently updated with new blockers. If anything you want blocked isn’t, you can add it yourself, all native content blocking functionality is accessible in an easy way!
The one thing I wonder is why the new blocker for cryptomining is listed under trackers. I suppose that’s good for free users, who can block trackers and miners at the same time, but unintuitive for paid users if you’re trying to check which cryptomining sites are blocked.
The very best of all the blockers
I'm using this on my Mac as well as on my 8+. It works great, and it's easy to suspend blocking or use it with custom lists. This is one of the most effective and complete blockers available, and the software creator has not sold out to any advertisers. Pretty much this is a no brainer - after using others for a while, I've been using this on the iPhone for 18 months and about 10 months on my Mac. It's the best.
The best blocker
Works great, makes browsing Safari faster and more enjoyable. Highly customizable yet easy to use. This is the one to get.
