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.

1Blocker version 3.1 brings various small improvements, adds Click Mode to the Visual Editor, and includes an updated set of rules.
When you use our Visual Editor to hide a webpage element in Safari, you can now temporarily disable selection by activating Click Mode, which lets you perform click actions. For example, you can activate Click Mode to log in to your account, navigate to a different page or open a menu before selecting elements to hide.
In the next updates, we will focus on interface performance improvements. I thank you for being patient.

Ratings and Reviews
Overall great, but the latest update removed features without a subscription
This is the best ad blocker for iOS and macOS, but the latest update switched to a subscription plan, and removed some features for existing paying customers, such as the ability to manually block things it missed on websites.
Also it seems to be changing the prices offered, presumably to be manipulative and get people who initially refuse premium to consider it again. It initially offered the 1 year for $10, then later offered it for $5. Combined with the 1 year "free" for existing users, I reluctantly subscribed to that plan.
I get the need for recurring revenue, but removing features from existing paying customers with no warning in the release notes isn't cool. I was an enthusiastic supporter of 1Blocker, we'll see if I continue to recommend it to friends after this.

Existing customers who paid for any 1Blocker app in the past get the new 1Blocker on all platforms for free forever.
So, all the features you had are still free for you and also you can use both iOS and Mac versions of 1Blocker now.
We introduced cloud-based rule updates for our filter lists, they are optional and if you deсide to try them out, you will have one year of the free trial.
If you don't activate trial period, you will still receive the updates just like it was before. Every 1Blocker release in App Store contain an updated set of rules.
Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to assist you.
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.......
