1Blocker is the fastest and most powerful Safari content blocker that improves your browsing experience by blocking ads, trackers, and other unwanted content, such as popups, cookie notices, comments, and more.
1Blocker is secure by design — we don't see the sites you visit. We protect you from online tracking, data collectors, and help you be focused on important things. We think that 1Blocker is an essential app for anyone who uses Safari.
An independent team of two app developers is working on 1Blocker. Our mission is to make the Internet a better and safer place for as many iOS and Mac users as possible.
Blocking unwanted content with 1Blocker is extremely fast and doesn't slow down Safari.
We use Apple's native tools to tell Safari in advance what should be blocked. This vastly improves efficiency, reduces data loaded, and saves battery life.
1Blocker makes sites load on average 2-5x faster.
SECURE BY DESIGN
We don't have access to webpages and don't see the sites you visit. That's because Safari itself handles all blocking, we just provide rules for it.
FREQUENT CLOUD UPDATES
1Blocker rules automatically stay up-to-date thanks to our powerful cloud service that builds and sends you new rules twice a week. (Available in Premium)
WE ARE TRANSPARENT
We believe that privacy is not for sale. That's why we don't have an "Acceptable Ads" program. We stay independent, and the only way we make money is through direct sales of 1Blocker on the App Store to you.
1Blocker is a highly customizable content blocker, providing the possibility of creating powerful custom rules. It allows you to create custom rules that block any URL by providing a regular expression or hide any element by CSS. It also lets you block cookies. (Available in Premium)
AVAILABLE ON ALL DEVICES
1Blocker works seamlessly on all your iOS, macOS, and iPadOS devices. Your preferences and custom rules are always in sync no matter which device you're using.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Just upgraded to 1Blocker X, and I have started to play with the settings. I welcome the ability to block those annoying little side bars that want you to tweet, fb, etc. I don’t care to share what I think of a website. I also don’t care to know whether others “like” something on the websites I visit. Being able to block all those websites that don’t have https is a plus. It’s possible this was already offered in the previous version, but I didn’t spend much time finding out. I was just glad to see those pesky “cookies” disappear. I don’t mind paying for anything if it works. The previous version worked well for me, and I think this new one will, once again, be money well spent. Thank you for this new version.
Update-Well, I have now benefited from the paid app for several years. It delivers as promised, and I have not had to worry about my phone’s safety. Great app for those of us who want peace of mind while using their cell. Again, thank you Indie developer.
Developer Response ,
What a wonderful review! We really appreciate you being a loyal customer and sharing your feedback. We enjoy developing 1Blocker and hope the upcoming features will keep improving your browsing experience!
Many OTHER ad blockers have fallen into disrepair, not having been updated in ages or at least visibly updated and losing their effectiveness. This one bucks the trend and goes full throttle ad blocking with great configurability such as easy white listing. I only wish that some websites that I visit and enjoy had ads that weren’t so utterly obnoxious that they hijack my Safari with a new page to announce “You’ve own a prize! Click OK!” And then I can’t find my way back because swiping back just loads the ad again. UGH. Well, this blocker effectively stops that crud with the latest policies. I’m sure it is a full time job just keeping that up to date so the app cost is perfectly reasonable. Technically the app is above all the rest since they’ve managed to implement more than 50,000 policies using a modular system. Awesome. Now if only websites realized their ads were so obnoxious that JUST MAYBE less obnoxious ads would result in less ad blocking and more revenue.......
Perfect for what I need
For those having difficulty enabling the content blocking in Settings, you probably have the native content blocking in iOS enabled under the Screen Time section in Settings. Just go to Settings then Screen Time then Content Restrictions, and disable Content Restrictions *there*, under Screen Time.
THEN go to Settings>Safari>Content Blockers and now, after you disabled Content Restrictions under Screen Time, you should now be able to ENable the Content Restrictions this app (and any other) provides. It’s counterintuitive yes but that’s just how it works now.
Anyway after doing all that, this app works awesome. No more annoying (and arguably pornographic) “Suggested Content” at the bottom of virtually every website! Which is exactly what I was looking to do! Thank you this is such a huge help and now pages load much faster to boot!
