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...
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.
Works great, no complaints
I've been using Wipr for macOS for a while now, but a very outdated ad blocker for iOS (hasn't been updated in 3 years!) As such, it wasn't doing a stellar job these days. Having been happy with the macOS version of Wipr, I decided to double dip -- 2 bucks is a small price to pay for clean, simple web browsing. Very happy with the improvements over my outdated ad blocker. Works great, instantly, and doesn't seem to have any impact on performance whatsoever. Ads (nor their placeholders) even get a chance to render. Thanks for coming to my Ted talk.
This works very well!
I’ve been using many other content blockers; some that did more than I need, and some that don’t get updated regularly enough for sites not to break. I don’t feel the need to keep looking after using this app. In-app updates for the content filters twice a week - plus it focuses on removing ads and protecting my privacy. One thing I would like to see is some text indicating the last time the rules were successfully updated so I can be sure it’s working in the background.
Get it and forget it!
This app is perfect if you want to clean up websites without doing any work! I just paid so it would keep working on my Mac after Apple changed the way Extensions work in Safari 13, without hesitation because I just want this to exist and continue to work (yeah, there's one for the Mac too!)! The developer's stance on privacy is very much appreciated as well! Buy it, use it, and if you ever doubt you needed it, disable the extension and surf the web and see how awful things are.
The Real Deal
Hands-down the best as blocker for iOS. It’s legit, the developer supports it and you know he won’t abandon it out sell you out, it’s very efficient yet unobtrusive. It also does not block non-ad site elements. Plus there is a Mac equivalent on the Mac App Store, so the great experience is consistent across your Apple devices. Can’t recommend Wipr enough and I wish more people discover it and use it over all the abandonware, bloated, aggressive and/or ineffective ad blockers the App Store is full of.
This is literally the perfect ad blocker for me, almost like it was tailor-made. NO settings to fool with, NO interface, NO anything. Download it, turn it on, forget it. Wipr has done a fantastic job so far, and if I ever do encounter a website or page with a problem, I can temporarily disable Wipr or add the site to a whitelist. This is exactly how I want ad blocking to work. This little app should be $10-15, not $2! Congratulations to developer Giorgio, who also provides excellent and personal support via email.
Really love Wipr! Always come back.
Every once in a while, I wonder how some of the newer competing ad blockers stack up to Wipr... I try them for a few days, and usually notice an extra ad here and there. And then I come crawling back to Wipr! Most importantly, Wipr does the best job of removing the blank spaces where ads would have been. Noticed that Wipr hasn’t seen a new update in a while (still works perfectly however)... wanted to thank the dev and hope it’s still in development!!
The best ad blocker - won’t try to charge you every time
Pay once, and use easy list ad blockers that are updated frequently whenever new updates come out. Wipr is hands down the best out of all The ad blockers. Very minimal, set it and leave it. The best part (unlike other ad blockers) the developer is not implementing a forced subscription service for more money, instead you are given the opportunity to donate in a monthly bases
The best option
Agree with all the other five stars. This is, hands down, the best ad blocker available on either iOS or the Mac. Literally is set and forget. Updates the block list on its own and actually works. If you want configurability, this might not be the one for you but if you want to just put it on your device and forget about it, this is definitely the one.
Is Good, Stopped ‘COX’ page hijacking ad’s!
Works, & didn’t slow page load. 👍🏼 Been using Safari no blocker. Last two days started getting page jack pop up Ad across multiple web pages. Everybody’s favorite! “Dear Cox Customer”! (you have been selected by and for us to hijack this webpage)! You could maybe win a Walmart gift card and your IP address is this x-xxx-xx!
This is the one, period.
First of all, thanks to the developer for the great job. This is the best ad blocking software I have ever used on my mac and iPhone. Seeing “Wipr does not have permission to read or transmit content from any webpages” statement (for macOS) in a multi-filter featured (iOS and macOS) and automatic filter list updating enabled (iOS and macOS) ad blocker cannot be exchanged for anything else. As best of my knowledge this software is the only one which capable of doing this in both platforms (iOS and macOS). I do not care of personalization settings, custom lists, rules, or whitelisting. I just wanted an effective ad blocking software that the developer of it does not track me. That’s all. And after all, I found it!
Easy and just works
Ok, I have used Adblock for years. They have problems with newest Mojave Safari, so I tried a few others (Mac and iOS) UBlocker never seemed to do much even though it is highly rated I have tried Ghostery but after reading how they sell used browser data I removed it 1Password looked promising with so many options. Filter lists are not updated other than with a new version is 1Blocker. In addition some of those annoying video pop up add would get past it. Wipr seemed too simple, but it works great. You can disable filtering using Safari rather than Wipr itself. Automatic updates to the filter lists. It my new iOS and Mac add and tracker blocker!
Highly recommended! Are use on my MacBook Air, iPhone, and iPad
I’ve tried many contact blockers. This one is the best. It respects your privacy and doesn’t read anything from your browser window – for example usernames and passwords etc. I use this on all of my Mac products and I’m very happy that the developer is keeping it up-to-date with iOS 14.
