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
Hidden Gem, Highly Recommended!
Update: New MAC version is excellent as well! Give it a try!
The only thing I would like to see eventually is the ability to add rules or add an element hiding option for users to add their own rules. But overall my original review still applies, highly recommended!
This is the most versatile and usable content blocker on the app store. It is fast and efficient without breaking the content. This one also does not leave any whitespace when blocking ads. I use Wipr on iOS as well as OS X. The developer is also very helpful and responsive. I would recommend this blocker to anyone who wants faster browsing, without breaking pages. 5 Stars
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.
Love it on my Mac, just as good on iPhone
I’ve used several blockers and I like Wipr the best so far. Seems to block the stuff you want blocked without ruining site functionality. On macOS it isn’t as big a deal because you can reload a page without blockers, but on iOS it’s all or nothing when it comes to content blockers. I found I was turning off my other blocker too often so I could get various pieces of websites to work. I can whitelist, but I’d prefer to block as much as possible without compromising the usefulness of the site. Wipr seems to do that better than any other I’ve tried.
