Search Ban improves your search results by automatically banning spam websites. Ships with an extensive, curated banlist with the ability to add your own.

Search Ban is a super minimal Safari extension that declutters and cleans up your search results. Tired of seeing tons of nonsense spam websites on your Google searches? Search Ban silently, and safely, removes all of them.

Search Ban has been built with a privacy first approach.

- All the blocking happens on your device with literally ZERO data being recorded or sent back to be data mined.
- Search Ban doesn't keep historic usage data like the count of how many sites it has blocked.
- It doesn't even come with basic app analytics or telemetry to keep track of how many times you've opened or use the app.
- It does check whether you have dark mode on or not so it can show you the correct tutorial video. (I hate opening a bright video on dark mode as much as you.)

If you're a security researcher, feel free to reach out to me for a license to make sure the app isn't up to anything funky.

EASY AS 1-2-3
Ban sites with just a tap of the hammer icon. Monitor what sites are being banned on any page and unban with another tap. Easy peasy!

Currently, it de-clutters and removes spam websites from regular Google search. Search Ban will support image search on Google as well as other search sites like DuckDuckGo and Bing in the next few updates.

Works very well

This app is fantastic for what it does and is simple to use. I hope you keep updating it as Google continues to make design changes.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the review. And yes, Google constantly changes their pages so it’s a little bit of an uphill task. Reviews like these keep me going though! Thanks again. :)

This is amazing! Have you considered doing this for Google image search as well? I’d love to block results from Pinterest and Facebook. Ugh anyway great job. Keep on.

God Bless the Developer of this app. I’m not even religious, but I recognize the Divine when I see it: No more Pinterest, no more Quora—omg I’m in ecstasy. I’d give it 7 stars if I could. THANK YOU!
