Wipr blocks all ads, trackers, cryptocurrency miners, EU cookie and GDPR notices, and other annoyances, so you can focus on the content that matters to you.
It works in Safari and all apps that use Safari to display web pages.
• Time, Data, and Battery Saver
Web pages load a lot faster with Wipr, and much less needs to be downloaded. Your mobile devices will love this.
Wipr prevents countless trackers from invading your privacy. Wipr itself cannot, nor wants to, know what you do on the web.
By using a new technology called Content Blocking Extensions, Wipr can do its job without slowing down Safari at all.
Wipr's blocklist is updated twice a week to keep up with the ever-changing web.
No one can pay to unblock ads. There are no "acceptable ads". Wipr only answers to you.
Wipr will use an enhanced blocklist for Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Thai, and Vietnamese speakers.
You can set up Wipr in seconds, and it will update automatically in the background to block future annoyances. There is no configuration.
This app was built with love and patience. I hope you'll enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed designing and building it.
Wipr is also available for your Mac, look for it in the Mac App Store!
Enjoy a cleaner web!

Ratings and Reviews
Get this APP if you want real AD blocking!
I am incredibly pleased with this App. Only hiccup I encountered was trying to turn it on after downloading. It took some investigating but I figured it out.
For an IPhone you may encounter this issue where toggle to turn on Wipr is greyed out.
If so go to screen time settings and restrictions- content restrictions- and change internet content filter to unrestricted access.
Then you will be able to turn on toggles to authorize Wipr.
Afterwards you can go back into screen time settings and content restrictions and turn back on your desired content filter for browsing. Hope this is helpful.
Final note, I was using Norton Ad Blocker prior to this and I found theirs annoying that it still displayed empty screen space where ads were but just didn’t show content. Seemed to limit loading speed of images. I love Wipr in comparison. Not wasting time loading empty squares on your screen. Browsing is much quicker. And I have terrible service reception where I live.
So Far Nothing! Not Working at All!
The 3 stars are because I don’t know yet if I’m doing something or it’s the app’s fault. And I don’t know because I’ve had no response to my plea for help. I’ve done everything requested (as per app instructions) of me in trying to fix this and nothing, nada, ingenting, zilch … I’m so depressed at this point. This is the straw that has broken the camel’s back. One piece of tech after another is just flawed. It’s all crap and there’s no way around it. But you try anyway, you go online to find solutions and half way through the process the instructions tell you to go to a particular setting in the drop down menu and it doesn’t exist. Nothing is beautifully built, nothing works, fonts in pale grey can’t be read. I give up.
Work around for other apps
This app works very well in Safari (as stated in the info) but not at all in other apps.
This work around has worked well for me. I use the Flipboard app (I like the app formatting better than the Safari Flipboard version) for reading news and nothing I’ve found defeats the 5 to 10 ads in each story I try to read. Ads are so intrusive it is difficult to determine what is an ad and what is the story without close scrutiny.
TRY THIS. In the Flipboard app Find a story you want to read. Click on the box with the up arrow (at the bottom of the screen). On the bottom row of the pop up, select “Open in Safari”. Read the story ad free, then click the “Flipboard” in upper left corner of the screen. I assume this works in other apps but have not checked.
Another hint. While you have that pop up open, click on the “...” option and move “Open in Safari” to the top so that it shows first in the pop up That way it will appear first when the pop up opens and you don’t have to scroll to find it.
