BANISH. The #1 Safari Extension to block annoying 'Open in App' popups & other dark patterns on the web.

“Banish does one thing and does it well: it nukes dickpanels in Safari on iPhone and iPad”
— John Gruber, Daring Fireball

"The app proved incredibly useful. For instance, when on Quora, clicking a link to another Quora page would normally pop up a blocker that requires you to log in to continue navigating the website. With Banish, this pop-up was gone and you could use the site normally"
— Sarah Perez, TechCrunch

Banish does not collect or store any of your data - nothing leaves your device.

Just a one-time purchase and Banish is yours. No subscriptions, no in-app purchases, no ads, no nonsense.

The app performs the minimal, necessary changes to block popups and free up screen space.

It's as easy as downloading the app and enabling it in Safari settings. No maintenance needed.

Banish is written in Apple's latest programming paradigm Swift UI and Safari Extension functionality.

NOTE: Even with Banish, Smart Banners can still appear at the top for apps you have installed. They can't be removed because they're built into Safari.

Does what it says

It works quite well. An occasional “slip through“ but I imagine these hiccoughs will ultimately be sorted. Thanks for a great product

Blocks attempts from sites forcing/tricking you to install there apps They say there apps are for a better experience but i found this app is a much better experience
I am happy using Safari i don't need an app and this lets me keep using Safari in peace without annoying pop ups trying to get you to install an app for your pleasure apparently but we all know it’s to steal your data

Responsive developer. App works!

Had an issue with a recent update breaking functionality. Once I identified it, the developer fixed the issue within 2 days. Very responsive.

I successfully use the app to block popups in safari. It may not work on all websites. But for me, it works well.

Developer Response ,

Banish has now been updated! Please download 1.24. Sorry for the trouble.
