Description

BANISH. The #1 Safari Extension to block annoying login popups & other dark patterns on the web.

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

Q: Why can't I use Instagram without signing-in?

A necessary extention

First off, the reason I went looking for a tool like this was the recent addition of "Sign in with Google" starting to appear on multiple websites and yes, Banish will Banish these from being seen. I've only been using it for a day but realize I've been to a few other sites that have done away additionally annoying popups and and VERY HAPPY with my cleaner web experiece using Banish now. THANK YOU!!

Security

Unchecked Banish Advanced for security reasons and it still works great even without that being checked. Pretty much gets rid of Google Sign-in nags. Thank you for the quick response addressing my concerns.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback--I can understand your concern. The extension needs access to your browser because it stops sites from blurring the page or hijacking the scrollbar until you dismiss their popups. If you want you can use just the content blocker, which does most of the popup blocking. Yes, evil developers can use extensions to compromise your privacy. Of course, I’m not doing that with Banish; no browsing data is collected by Banish at all. It’s one of the reasons why Banish is a paid app: the app is the product, not you or your data.

Used to be Great

This used to be a great extension for Safari. It blocked the "open in app" popups, "login" popups, nonsense from the NY Times like popups to gift the Times, etc. Moreoever, the developer was quite responsive.

Apparently there has been a change in ownership or something because nothing I've reported has been fixed nor have I even had the courtesy of a response.
