1Blocker is one of the fastest and most powerful customizable content blockers. It is able to block ads, tracking, and other annoying elements such as pop-ups, newsletter subscriptions, and cookie usage messages. The application allows you to configure user rules, block or allow the use of cookies, create a whitelist of websites for Safari and synchronize iCloud on all iOS devices.

The free version of 1Blocker will be useful for users with minimal requirements since it blocks ads and trackers. However, if you want to get the maximum benefit, then a full purchase will certainly pay off.

Wipr is a simple and reliable ad blocker for iPhone and iPad, working in Safari and all applications that use Safari. It blocks pop-ups, cookie notifications, trackers and advertisements. Wipr, unlike other ad blockers, does not make money showing its user’s specific ads.

Wipr is very easy to use and has a built-in auto-update feature. However, due to its simplicity, you are not able to customize the whitelist of websites you want to maintain. Wipr does not slow down Safari, and loading web pages is significantly faster. A simple blocker may be the best solution to protect your privacy on the Internet.
