2 min read

If you don’t know how to allow pop ups on safari while working on the Mac, iPhone or iPad, then here’s how you can enable it in just few clicks!!

Pop-up windows can help or get in the way. Some websites will only work if you let pop-ups through. For instance, a bank’s website might use pop-ups to show your monthly statements. Some websites might have ads that pop up on your screen.

You can allow pop-ups on certain websites or block them on all websites. If you’re not sure if you want to block pop-ups on a website, you can choose to block and be notified when the site wants to show a pop-up. Then you can decide if you want to show the pop-up.

Allow or block pop-ups on one website

1. Go to the site in the Safari app on your Mac.

2. Click Websites after going to Safari > Settings > Websites.

3. On the left, click Pop-up Windows (Scroll to the bottom of the list if you don’t see Pop-up Windows).

Choose one of the following from the site’s pop-up menu:

  • Allow: Website pop-ups are shown.
  • Block and Notify: Pop-ups for the website don’t show up, but you can choose to show them by clicking the Show button in the Smart Search field when you go to a site with blocked pop-ups.
  • Block: Website pop-ups don’t show up.

Allow or block pop-ups on all websites

1. In the Safari app on your Mac, choose , then click Websites.

2. Choose Safari > Settings, then click Websites.

3. On the left, click Pop-up Windows (Scroll to the bottom of the list if you don’t see Pop-up Windows)

4. If you want to change the settings for any of the websites listed below Configured Websites (for example, if they are set to Allow and you want to change them to Block), select each website and click Remove.

If you don’t see Configured Websites, you haven’t set pop-up blocking for any sites yet or you’ve cleared the list.

Click the pop-up menu that says “When visiting other sites,” then choose one of the following:

  • Allow: Website pop-ups are shown.
  • Block and Notify: Pop-ups for the website don’t show up, but you can choose to show them by clicking the Show button in the Smart Search field when you go to a site with blocked pop-ups.
  • Block: Website pop-ups don’t show up.
