Wipr blocks all ads, trackers, cryptocurrency miners, EU cookie and GDPR notices, and other annoyances, so you can focus on the content that matters to you while using Safari.
• Time, Data, and Battery Saver
Web pages load a lot faster with Wipr, and much less needs to be downloaded. Your battery will love this.
Wipr prevents countless trackers from invading your privacy. Wipr itself cannot, nor wants to, know what you do on the web.
By using a new technology called Content Blocking Extensions, Wipr can do its job without slowing down Safari at all.
Wipr's blocklist is updated twice a week to keep up with the ever-changing web.
No one can pay to unblock ads. There are no "acceptable ads". Wipr only answers to you.
Wipr will use an enhanced blocklist for Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Thai, and Vietnamese speakers.
You can set up Wipr in seconds, and it will update automatically in the background to block future annoyances. There is no configuration.
This app was built with love and patience. I hope you'll enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed designing and building it.
Wipr is also available for your iPhone or iPad, look for it in the App Store!
Enjoy a cleaner web!

Ratings and Reviews
Not sure if this catches everything
I can still see some ads when browsing. The ones which come to mind are ads on Twitch, similarly i see promoted tweets on twitter.
Using UBlock i dont see either of these things so i think there is still a way to go with Wipr considering this is a paid app.
Works well after setup hiccup
The initial setup process wasn't very clear. Turns out you have to run the app, click "Get Rid of Ads and Trackers" and then make sure the Wipr Safari Extension(s) are enabled (off by default for me). So could do with an improved on-boarding experience.
After that works as expected and no issue so far. So a big thumbs up :-)
Very good, only one issue
Everything works well and as expected. One addition I'd like would be for a Wipr icon on the safari toolbar (like what is found in adblock etc) for the quick disabling of Wipr when needed. It is cumbersome and frustrating to navigate menus in order to temporarily disable it.
