Failed on first two websites
I turned this on in Safari Private Mode and see ads all over CNN and FOX8. Three or more per page. Then I turned off acceptable ads. All but the most annoying ad disappeared. Does not block NPR Paywall overlay.

The Best Ad Blocking Tool
I’ve used Adblock Plus for Safari for about two years, along with two other ad blockers. Recently I upgraded my iPad to iOS17. Suddenly got ads all over the place! I checked the Adblock Plus and readjusted my enabled websites list, and closed the iPad, then re-opened it after a few minutes. Voilá— no more ads! This app is much more efficient than the other two ad blockers I used before. My suggestion to anyone having ad problems after installing an iOS update is just to check and recalibrate your Adblock Plus, and close your device, then re-open it. I really hate ads, so I love this app.

Works great… when it works
Using this on an iPhone 11 (running iOS 16.3). If you get it running, it works very well, having the option of allowing acceptable ads or blocking all. Allows ads on sites you put on the “allow list”. However, my experience with it has been less than stellar. If the app is updated, or turned off for whatever reason then turned back on, it is like it isn’t even running (even though it is turned on and “block ads” is selected). Tried shutting it down and restarting, shutting Safari down and restarting, etc. after a few days it randomly starts blocking. This would easily be a 5 star app if this was fixed, as it is very frustrating.

Stopped Working
After updating to iOS 17, this app has become completely useless. The thing I loved most about this app is that it would stop ads from opening their own tab in safari but it no longer prevents that from happening & just all around stopped blocking ads for me. Hoping it gets fixed cause this is the only adblocker I’ve ever liked. Other apps block pop up windows but they still open & say “this content is blocked” which you then have to close the tab. That never happened with Adblock Plus, it would literally prevent an advertiser from opening a window PERIOD. Hence why it’s my fav 🙁

Does what it was supposed to
It would be good for a paid app, for a free one, it's pretty great. Blocks scams/ads when other apps try opening safari. Still opens to a blocked content page, but you get what you get when you don't put money into what you think is important

Make sure to let it work for a little…
I had to let it sit and work through the system for a little bit. After maybe an hour I went back and it’s working very well now.

Works well
I’ve utilized the app for a couple years now. Once you complete the setup process, you will rarely if ever have to open the app again.i have no complaints about the app. It works as it’s intended to, preventing pop-ups and blocking malware

Seems to slow down iPhone and Safari
It seems when I install and use this app that my phone, and Safari appear a bit slower and less responsive/laggy, including loading the web pages. I’m not sure what it is exactly. Maybe using too much memory or something? Bugs? Background processes? Thanks.

Good by Annoying Ads
add block plus is great. It gets rid of ads that you do not want to see and if you want to see an ad all you need to do is disable it for that particular advertisement.

Used to work but now not so much
I’ve used this Adblock for years. But I’ve noticed lately that it’s not been blocking ads nearly as much as it used to. I will change the review back to 5 stars if this issue is fixed because as of now it barely blocks anything

Looking for a chrome adblocker
I do not use Safari very much. I prefer using chrome I’m tired of the pop-ups there.. I think I need to find an ad blocker that works on that browser. I can’t honestly state how much that I like this ad blocker because I rarely use Safari like I mentioned.

Very fun! For literally 2 days.
This adblocker at first would block every single ad no matter the website but as soon as I used it for 3 days it just stopped working. When going into the app it won’t even let you change settings and will just keep on a loading screen forever. Don’t recommend getting this for a long term use.

It didn’t block any ads, it randomly stopped blocking ads on a sight I use a lot. I’ve un and redownloaded it several times and it continues to not block ads, it’s 1 job it doesn’t block pop ups and it doesn’t prevent the site from taking me to other sights, it doesnt even block the sights the original sight takes me to

Not blocking ads, no email
AdBlock is not doing the fantastic job it once did. I've been opening more and more links in Facebook that are 95% obscured by ads. What gives?? And, when I opened your app settings, there is no email to send your screenshots or let you know there is an issue. I'm very disappointed.

No longer works on Safari
OS 17.1.2 no longer blocks ads on Safari . Hope this is temporary. Switched browsers to Ghostery, that still blocks ads ,(for now) .

Doesn’t work
Installed to block ads, but it doesn’t block any ads. I’ve noticed literally NO difference between before I installed and after. I even turned off “acceptable ads” and it made no difference. Garbage product, which is surprising considering the computer extension works well.

Does not Work
I downloaded this adblocker because my previous one wasn’t working as well as before. But I might as well go back to it because adblocker plus does nothing but take up space in my phone.

Does this work to any degree?
I installed ad block. And I get nothing but ads. So my question is, does it even work at all? To any degree? I rated poorly because I’m here asking if it even works at all. Or if it’s all just a big game?
