Enjoy politics-free web browsing. Politics Filter is a content blocker that filters out links, websites and photos related to politics. It is especially effective at blocking everything about the 2016 US presidential election. It's pretty good at blocking all kind of political content irrespective of ideology.
It's going to be a long election cycle all the way until November. Filter all the noise from all candidates, political parties and pundits once and for all. Politics Filter works by blocking content related to all major candidates, parties, elections, primaries, caucuses, polls, and major political issues that seem to plague every website. Finally, you'll be able to read the news and browse the web without being bombarded with politics and elections all the time.
Instantly delete all politics from the web. Politics filter integrates directly into Safari, so you do not need to change anything about the way you browse the web. Simply enable Politics Filter and you will see how photos, images and links related to elections and politics disappear. Politics Filter also blocks website URLs that contain the politics keywords, so if you accidentally follow a link to one of these sites, you will only see a blank page.
In addition to working in Safari, Politics Filter also works in certain apps that use Safari Webkit for web browsing. Politics Filter does NOT work in apps such as Facebook for iOS or Twitter for iOS. However, it will work if you access these services via the Safari web browser.
LIMITATIONS: Politics Filter is intended for entertainment purposes only. It has been tested on a large number of websites. It will dramatically reduce your exposure to political and election-related content. However, it cannot block 100% of the politics content on 100% of the websites. It may also affect the display of some web content that may mistakenly identify as politics-related.
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
Ratings and Reviews
Blocks more than politics
Yes the app does well blocking political content, thank you for that. Unfortunately it also blocks content and websites completely unrelated to politics, so sadly I had to delete the app because my nearly all of my searches were being blocked.
Tried with both Facebook and Twitter in Safari...lots of political stuff in both.
Blocks out news on the election.
