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!

Wipr Positive Reviews
Super great Adblock 99% of the time.For some reason a rare handful of webpages will not load at all when using wipr (example, the Discover Card 5% cash back calendar page) but beyond those rare hiccups it’s probably the best ad blocker out there. Well worth every penny..Version: 1.44
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..Version: 1.38
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..Version: 1.35
Work around for other appsThis 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..Version: 1.6.2
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.Version: 1.4
It just works!I just recently go an iPad and I’ve been trying my hand at using Safari instead of FireFox and Chrome. So far so good, but I realized that I’ve come to be very accustomed to the AdBlock’d life of browsing on my MacBook, so I started to look for a good AdBlocker. From checking the top apps in the App Store for Content Blocking, this appeared to the best one.
So far it’s been working perfectly. I frequent blog sites like Gizmodo, and they have horrendous ads that expanding in the screen and take up like 1/3rd of the reading space. With this app, the entire ad doesn’t show up and all I see is what I want to see :).Version: 1.37
Love it on my Mac, just as good on iPhoneI’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..Version: 1.5
Works great, no complaintsI'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..Version: 1.7
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..Version: 1.15
Phenomenal | Just WorksI’ve been a longtime user of Adgaurd, but I recently noticed that web pages were taking significantly longer to load *without* Adguard enabled, which seemed silly. So I went on the hunt for a new ad blocker, and Reddit brought me here. For the low price of a couple of bucks, Wipr has immediately fixed all of my problems. Web pages load at lightning fast speeds again, Adblock test websites register 100% coverage, and I couldn’t be happier!.Version: 1.38
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..Version: 1.7
The best ad blocker - won’t try to charge you every timePay 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.Version: 1.16
OUTSTANDINGThis 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..Version: 1.11
The Real DealHands-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..Version: 1.4
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!!.Version: 1.3
Superb blocker. Exactly as advertised (pun intended). Too powerful for me.Frequently and lovingly updated Easy Privacy block list, just as advertised. If you want an ad blocker, or if you want to avoid user (your) tracking, then unequivocally, THIS IS IT! Superb in all ways.
Unfortunately for puny old me, I can’t handle the strength of its protection and find I must often disable then re-enable the filter for my important stuff (medical, financial, legal…) so I have decided it is far more important for my efficient work simply to remove it, devil be ******..Version: 1.31
WIPR wiped the ads!Thank you developers for this app. My iPad Pro 2020 was awash in ads after I downloaded iOS 15.4. Maybe it killed my old ad blocker? I don’t know….not a techie. I was horrified😳 by the number of ads…..yikes! 99% solved instantly with WIPR thank you so much. I read in my pre purchase research that WIPR plays well with iOS devices and it’s true. Effortless install, no password/email to fool with either….❤️WIPR..Version: 1.35
The best optionAgree 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..Version: 1.7.1
The best ad blocker, period.I have tried a lot of ad blockers available on the App Store over the past many years, and I settled on wiper over a year ago. are used it on my iPad, iPhone, and Mac. I have come to the conclusion that this is the best ad blocker available right now. In addition, the developer respects our privacy by not collecting any data..Version: 1.35
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!.Version: 1.4
Easy and just worksOk, 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!.Version: 1.4
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!.Version: 1.5.1
Highly recommended! Are use on my MacBook Air, iPhone, and iPadI’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..Version: 1.17
This. Right. Here.This is an INCREDIBLE ad blocker. It does everything you want and then some. I honestly cannot remember what ads look like on safari on my iPhone and MacBook. I would pay for this again if I could. The developer also constantly updates this. It’s well worth the money. Buy this today. You won’t be upset. I promise..Version: 1.3
I’m obsessed with WiprI’ve tried a few ad blockers. My most recent one was complicated to configure originally and was starting to let a lot of ads together. Wipr is super simple and just works! Now I’m obsessed with how fast websites are. I’m also obsessed with trying to find a website that Wipr fails on!.Version: 1.39
Phenomenal replacement for UBlock OriginLike many I was bummed when UBlock Origin got pulled. I tired 1BlockerX but the dev screwed over the user base by sunsetting the “legacy” app and going to a subscription or $40 price tag.
Great extension, and much better to use native Safari website setting to disable content blockers rather than an app. Super light, super nice..Version: 1.25
Highly Recommended!Saw a lot of people on Reddit and here recommending this app and decided why not try it and it’s great! Definitely worth the purchase. Does exactly what it says, very easy install and then you never have to worry about ads again. $2 is a very fair price. Thank you devs!.Version: 1.33
HIDDEN GEM ON APP STOREThis is by far the best-performing Adblock on iOS. I have tested most of the popular ones on the store and none have worked quite as smoothly with as small as a performance impact as Wipr.
Load times are lightening fast and even ads in 3rd party apps that use the Safari backend are blocked (I.e. Reddit and the like)..Version: 1.28.1
Best ad block in app townI don’t understand how or why other ad blocks are lacking. I don’t even remember how I stumbled onto this ad block. It has been one of the few and only apps I’ve ever paid for and has been the greatest investment for my iPhone experience..Version: 1.46
It works!I’ve been using it for about five months and so far it works well. What I like is the fact that it runs in the background and updates automatically. Don’t have to check it unless you want to. 👍.Version: 1.35
WorkingMy original review: “Perhaps I am missing something, but I followed the instructions for how to enable the extension in safari permissions. Restarted safari, still seeing ads everywhere.”
Now I refreshed Wipr and it’s working great on Safari on a news website with aggressive ads..Version: 1.30
A++Does everything it says it does, seamlessly. It’s initial activation is about the easiest thing I’ve ever had to do to get an app up and running. And, since activating it, I’ve quite literally had to do nothing to keep my webpages neat and clean - since Wipr does all that for me in the background - out of sight and out of mind..Version: 1.18
The best simple and effective adblocker for safariI use Wipr on my iPhone, ipad and Mac and it works great. Simple and effective. Database is kept updated in the background so it's always up to date with the latest rules.
Can't imagine browsing the web without Wipr..Version: 1.39
Fantastic filtering with K*I*S*S simplicityHave been using this on both IOS and MacOS for years. I appreciate the simplicity / lack of config options, as I’d rather not spend my days tweaking a tool. Works great, no config options - if you want to tweak things, this ain’t for you.Version: 1.37
My fave out of them all✅privacy-conscious
✅works well, never breaks
❤️🩹need to open the “app” now and then to ensure iOS does not stop it from auto-updating (maybe the developer could send a reminder alert once a week to keep the app “alive”?).Version: 1.25
By far the best iOS Safari as blockerI have a tried a few safari ad blockers and this one is by far the best. Way better than the “original” blockers that I have used for years. They also have a Mac safari app that works equally as well on the computer..Version: 1.4
10 starsWhat a hidden gem! At first it didn’t work. Safari ads are still popping as heck, but after sometime, or rather after updating the app for for a few times, it just suddenly worked. No more annoying ads..Version: 1.18
Great simple appI love how simple and effective this ad-blocking app is. It appears to have good privacy practices which I appreciate. It only weighs in at a few megabytes too. It makes me wonder why all the other blocking apps are so unnecessarily big..Version: 1.40
The heckI still get ads when I go on animesuge,and I use the Wipr button😶🌫️…. It still shows 3 pop ups everytime,you can see for you self.
Just type animesuge and click on an anime
And you see what I meant.Version: 1.35
Install......and forget. A great content blocker that actually works, doesn’t interfere with videos, and clears the page of all blank spaces left behind by ads. And it’s all for free! Make sure to support this developer by donating a “tip” through the app!.Version: 1.28.1
No more redirects to fake gift card sitesFinally! The sequence of clearing browser data + airplane mode + phone reboot would no longer stop browsers from redirecting to full-screen scam ads. Now at least my Safari browser has become immune to those! : ).Version: 1.4
Great app! Must have for safari!Super easy and clean interface. Occasionally open the app to check for updates but otherwise it’s 100% needed for iOS. Recommend to everybody..Version: 1.42
Best $2 spent ever!It actually works! I downloaded after a review from New York Times. It has lived up to the claims. Even after several months, it continues to prove effective. If it could only block anything “Kardasian”, too….Version: 1.35
Excellent App!!5 stars only.
Deserves 10 stars and if I could I would give it 10.
App is awesome. Just the content no more scrolling through miles of garbage. Worth the small amount of money and what I’ve seen with the App I would have paid more with no complaints.
Excellent App and Awesome job for creating a much needed ad blocker.
Nice to see “ We have noticed you have a content blocker on. If you want the fullness of this site please consider turning it on “.
Ha ha no thank you.
One very happy customer..Version: 1.25
Great adblockerLove the app, been using it since day one. One question for the dev, tho: is there a way to see when there’s an update/refresh available? I find myself going into the app and hitting automatic refresh to see if there’s an update. Thanks!.Version: 1.11
You’re pretty goodWorks well, blocks most ads without interfering with what I want to see. Doesn’t like to update automatically but once a week I open in and refresh and things are fine.
Love the Mac app too. Thanks!.Version: 1.5
Update. Working now! (Previously useless on IPad)I am cautiously optimistic. Users be prepared to read the huge FAQ, sent bug report.
Importantly, for worst advertisement offenders in safari, click the puzzle piece button in the url box and turn on Wipr extra.
It seems like this app is a labor of love for one small developer, so I’m happy to change my rating. It’s not perfect out of the box, but it’s a huge relief when it works!.Version: 1.38
Great app backed by a good developerEasy to set up and updated often. Blocks out many annoying ads including advertisements, sponsored or otherwise, from YouTube. Had a problem with some ads showing on a particular website and Giorgio (the developer of Wipr) was quick to reply to my emails, and worked back and forth with me to troubleshoot. Wouldn’t hesitate to contact him if there’s any ads showing on a site you frequent, as he seems to care about updating his app to suit his users needs.
Great job and wouldn’t hesitate to purchase over the other ad blockers!.Version: 1.2
The best oneLots of ad trackers out there for iOS, most of them don’t work and a lot of the ones that do charge your first born as a yearly sub cost. This is a one time charge (plus tip if you’re feeling frisky) and it works fantastic, set up is a breeze and it hasn’t slowed down my browsing at all..Version: 1.12
Top notch on PC and mobileAbsolutely love the “set it and forget it” approach to this app. Been using it on PC since the initial launch and I’ve never had to consider an alternative..Version: 1.6.2
The best adblocker for iOSI can’t believe how cheap this extension is! After countless hours spent searching for a way to block ads on iOS, I finally stumbled upon Wipr. Most of the other adblockers tried to sell you a monthly subscription, had some sketchiness, or just didn’t even work. Wipr was extremely simple to use and directly integrated into Safari so you don’t have to setup a brand new browser either. I’m glad you can enable Wipr extra on specific web pages too, so you can have some peace of mind that your info is safe. Props out to the developer!.Version: 1.46
PerfectWorth it !.Version: 1.46
Straightforward and does the jobGreat app. Thank you..Version: 1.40
WiprExcellent app and easy to use. It is a must to enjoy using the web..Version: 1.39
ReviewGood application, would recommend..Version: 1.3
ExcellentExcellent app, unobtrusive, reliable and updated regularly..Version: 1.37
Great AppInexpensive - works well - updated regularly - highly recommended..Version: 1.37
The One & Only True Blocker!I’ve been using this app for a number of years with bunch of others!
Most of them either switched to subscription or stopped updating their apps!
As I started getting rid of others, I noticed this app on its own, thanks to its super active developer does it all by itself.
FWIW, a few times I emailed developer about some web sites that learned new tricks to show Ads - in less than a day got a response from him and promised he would take care of them!
And, he did!
Highly recommend try this app. You won’t regret your decision..Version: 1.35
Great iOS Safari blockerGreat iOS Safari blocker.Version: 1.35
Fantastic AppI've been using a variety of free ad blockers for years and while some work better than others, none of them work as well as Wipr! I'm always hesitant to spend money on an app in case it's a dud and I will never pay a monthly subscription for any app but this is simply amazing. So impressed with it that I bought it for my iMac as well as my iphone and ipad. Was a bit fiddly getting it up and running but well worth the few minutes it took to figure it out..Version: 1.34
Works perfectI’ve tried them all, this is the one. Works exactly how it should, free (tipping is optional), lightweight, just install and done..Version: 1.31
This one worksSeems to just work. At least for blocking ads on news sites and the like. Not sure about the other stuff or use cases.
I briefly tried a few other options before this one, none of which did the trick, so I was pleasantly surprised when this one did.
Worth the price..Version: 1.28.1
Simple and it worksVery simple. Use it on my iPad. No issues. Blocks adds..Version: 1.15
Great App!However, there are a couple of things I'd like to see:
1. Get rid of the pop-over and just put the update UI in the main window.
2. Show the date of the currently-used block-list in the UI—something like, "You have the 2019-05-01 block list."
(BTW, these also apply to the macOS version.).Version: 1.6
No nonsense, get it!Super simple to use, affordable, works perfectly almost every time, friendly developer..Version: 1.5
OutstandingAnnoying ads in Safari have you scrambling for screen real estate? Wipr wipes those ads away giving you clean content to enjoy..Version: 1.1
Working as intended.This is a no nonsense adblocker that delivers exactly what it promises. No acceptable ads nonsense either. Just a clean, fast browsing experience with no intrusions.
Block list updates are frequent enough that once ads start creeping through it usually means I forgot to download the latest list. 5+ stars for outstanding service..Version: 1.3
Great appDoes its job well.Version: 1.3
The bestBlocks all the ads!.Version: 1.1
Install, block, forgetBlock it all, no settings, no ads, no trackers, no intrusion from the app.
Unlike other tracker and app blockers this extension doesn't ask for permission to see what you're doing, and doesn't let "unobtrusive" ads through, it doesn't even ask you if you want.
Literally just install, block, forget..Version: 1.1
Works greatThank you!!.Version: 1.1
Best Ad BlockerAlmost no configuration, auto updates, no mistakes, no ads..Version: 1.1
FantasticGreat on the Mac, just as good on iOS..Version: 1.1
FINALLY.I've tried the rest, and now I use the best.
This Safari content blocker doesn't break pages and actually gets regular updates to its block list. It also doesn't beg you to enable notifications like Purify does.
Speaking of Purify, it's list is woefully out of date and includes none of the updates needed to fix issues that I personally reported. With Wipr, I don't have to report things that need blocking because they're already blocked!.Version: 1.1
Best content blocker yet!I've used crystal, purify, distilled and 1blocker. All of them had some problems.
Crystal accepts bribes from advertisers; purify broke many pages; distilled didn't block video ads, 1blocker didn't block sponsored ads.
Wipr on the other hand, was able to block every ad, without giving any rendering issues. This is hands down the best content blocker yet.
I look forward to future feature addition by the developer. Oh, and if you are a Mac user, wipr is free for OSX..Version: 1.1
