Ad blockers are a great way to speed up your website loading time, prevent malicious scripts from spreading, and secure your online activity. They also reduce your data usage.
But if you have an ad-blocker on your iPhone, you may need to temporarily disable it before visiting certain websites. Here’s how to do it.
1. Go to Settings
If you’re looking to turn off your ad blocker on an iPhone, there are several ways to do so. One method is to go to Settings and disable the ad blocking feature. Another way is to use a third-party app to do so.
While many iOS devices are capable of blocking simple pop-up ads, they may not be enough to fully protect your device and data from malware threats. A good ad blocker will not only block basic pop-ups but also will prevent you from being redirected to malicious websites or infected with trackers and other security risks.
For those who prefer to disable their ad blocker on an iPhone, Apple offers the following three methods for doing so:
The first method is to open the Settings app and tap Content Blockers. This displays a list of all the content blockers you have installed on your phone. The toggle switch next to “Block pop-ups” will be grey if the ad blocker is disabled. If you want to turn the ad blocker back on, navigate to this menu and click the toggle switch again.
A second method is to go to Safari and disable the ad blocker temporarily for all websites you are currently visiting. This can be useful when you’re trying to read a specific article that isn’t compatible with your ad blocker.
Lastly, you can turn off ad tracking on an iPhone to stop your device from serving targeted ads. This feature limits how third-party apps can use data to serve you ads that are based on your usage habits, browsing history and installed apps.
Whether you’re new to the world of iPhones or a long-time veteran, there are always new things to learn. You can do things like boost your battery life, beef up your security and make your phone work better for you. You can even create shortcuts for some of your favorite features. These tips will help you get the most out of your iPhone and ensure that it’s functioning to its fullest potential.
2. Go to Safari
If you have an iPhone, you probably use Safari to browse the internet. But if you’ve ever found yourself unable to access web pages or apps, it may be that Safari isn’t working properly on your device. This can be frustrating, but there are a few things you can do to fix the problem and get Safari working again.
One of the most common causes of Safari not working on an iPhone is a slow or broken Wi-Fi connection. Try connecting to a different Wi-Fi network or restoring your network settings. If that doesn’t work, try turning off your cellular data and then re-enable it after a few seconds.
Another issue that can cause Safari to not work is a bug that prevents it from starting up or freezing up. It usually affects devices running iOS 10, but can also occur on other iPhone and iPad models.
To fix this problem, go to “Settings” and choose “Safari.” In the app’s list of options, scroll down until you see “Search Engine Suggestions.” Turn this off.
This can help make Safari start up faster and prevent it from crashing or freezing. It may take some time for Safari to fully open up, but it will then start running smoothly again.
You can even turn off content blockers for a website you’re currently browsing to allow that site to use ads. This can save you some money in the long run because you won’t have to pay to view ads on a specific site.
If you have a kid who is trying to surf the internet on their own iPhone, it might be helpful to set up a screen time passcode. This way, you can monitor their activity and prevent them from accessing inappropriate websites.
Besides preventing kids from accessing the internet, a screen time passcode can also prevent them from accessing games and other applications that might be harmful to their health. This feature can also be useful for business owners who want to prevent their employees from accessing potentially dangerous or inappropriate sites.
Using an ad blocker can be a good option, but it can also be annoying and slow down your phone. To turn off an ad blocker on an iPhone, you can either disable it in Settings or go to Safari and tap the Content Blockers button.
3. Go to Website View
You can easily turn off ad blocker on your iPhone by opening the Safari browser app. This is the most convenient way to do it, because the Safari app has a built-in ad blocker.
You’ll see this feature at the top of the screen when you open Safari on your iPhone. Tap it to reveal the Website View menu, which will allow you to disable ad blocking for any specific website that you’re viewing.
Once you’ve disabled ad blocking for the site, make sure to go back to the Settings app and enable it again. This will ensure that Safari doesn’t try to automatically turn it off for you the next time you load a page.
While ad blockers are a great way to keep your connection speed fast, they can also prevent you from seeing certain elements on a web page that you need. This can include images, forms, and payment portals.
In some cases, you’ll be able to disable the ad blocker by going to the Extensions menu in Edge. This is located halfway down the menu next to an icon that resembles a puzzle piece.
4. Tap Content Blockers
Ads on iPhone and iPad are not only annoying, they can also slow down page load times and eat up valuable mobile data. That’s why Apple added native support for content blockers to its Safari browser — a one-click solution that prevents ads like popups and banners from appearing on websites.
To disable ad blockers on an iPhone or iPad, open the Settings app and select Safari. Next, tap “Block Pop-ups.” This is a great way to keep unwanted ads from interrupting your web browsing, but it only blocks a few types of ads, including video advertisements on YouTube and some malicious scripts that can steal data.
Once you’ve enabled this feature, you can’t turn it off without a third-party ad blocker installed. There are a few good options that will work well on the iOS operating system, though we’re particularly impressed with Total Adblock, which successfully blocks social media ads, ads on YouTube, and more.
You can also install a third-party ad blocker on any compatible browser, which will allow you to turn the feature off when you want. If you’re using Firefox, you can manage extensions by opening the browser and clicking on Extensions. It’s halfway down the menu next to an icon that resembles a puzzle piece.
Microsoft Edge has an ad blocker built in as well. It looks like a flame or fox surrounding a bluish and purplish orb. Just click on ad blocking and then click the toggle switch that appears next to it to enable or disable it.
