Ratings and Reviews
It def works but...
I’ve seen people go on the same sites as me and & the comparison is very clear, they are getting way more ads then I do so I can def say this app works well and it’s doing its job when it comes to banner ads and such.
My only criticism is that I wish it did better was curbing pop up ads or preventing them all together. Trying to watch a video but having to go through 5 pop up ad pages first can be annoying.
Also the app has improved a lot since I last reviewed it & the developers were very quick to reach out to me.

Not working. So it’s a waste of $.
I was so sick of all the pop ups on my iphone (6plus up to date) every time I go anywhere to read the news or try to read anything on Safari. I am having to shut down pop ups constantly so trying to get one paragraph read is impossible. It has come to the point that any site that immediately interrupts me with stupid pop ups or any videos that are interrupted to present ads are shut down immediately. Can’t believe people think this is acceptable. Getting to the point where I hate trying to use the Internet on a mobile phone. It’s ridiculous. So I was hoping after reading the reviews that this application would curb that and I don’t see where it has. And yes I have hit all the settings as indicated in their instructions. Just not working.

Needs to be updated
It’s never really blocked ads as much as it blocks scripts. This means that on most sites if there is a menu to open or a search, it doesn’t work until I whitelist it. Usually I’ll white list a site and afterwords I’ll remove it from the whitelist.
Now with iOS 15 it doesn’t show the newly white listed sites in the app anymore. On top of that when I go into private mode it treats every site as white listed. At least it seems that way so far. When I white list a site, the only way to remove it from the list is to go to that site and select the “Purify Preferences” again.
When Apple announced that Safari extensions were being added in iOS 15 I was excited that Purify would be updated as an extension, if not already. But now I see it hasn’t been updated in a few years.
