StopTheScript is a Safari extension for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS that stops all JavaScript on your selected websites. StopTheScript is the only Safari extension that stops inline JavaScript on the web page as well as externally loaded JavaScript. This is in contrast to Safari content blockers, which can only block external JavaScript, not inline JavaScript.

IMPORTANT: StopTheScript requires Safari version 17 on macOS.

StopTheScript is made by indie developer Jeff Johnson. If you need support, please email me at or read the support site at

Edit rules in app

Would it be possible to allow editing rules within the application? There is an application named ‘Pro Script’ on the AppStore that allows this. It would be much easier to be able to do that. As well as import external rules.

Lastly, ‘Pro Script’ allows blocking document, image, style-sheet, script, font, raw, svg-document, media, pop up, ping, fetch, web socket, and ‘other’. It would be awesome if we were able to have finer control over this. Thank you for your work!

Freedom from invasive and aggressive internet activity

Stop the script combined with stop the madness is the only solution on iPhone that can deal with todays emerging cybersecurity threats within Safari. Run it full time, if it blocks a site completely ie most Meta products maybe you should not be using those sites in the first place.

Definitely the best app on my phone

If I could only have a single app outside of Safari itself, this would be it. It really makes the web usable again and for folks like me on a metered connection, it ensures that I'm not paying for crap that I never even wanted.
