You’ve probably visited a website like Reddit or LinkedIn on your iPhone only to receive an annoying pop-up that takes up almost your entire screen urging you to view the content in your app instead of on the website.


It’s common practice for websites that have attached iOS apps to push users to open (if they already have the app installed) or download your app from the App Store to view the content they’re trying to view. However, it can be very annoying for end users, as these pop-ups are usually quite intrusive to the actual content, creating an inferior experience.

Fortunately, there’s a new way to block these pop-ups within Safari on ‌iPhone‌ and iPad. Developer Alex Zamoshchin has created a new Safari extension called “Banish” (via daring fireball) which can run on iOS and iPadOS and is designed to specifically get rid of those pop-ups. The $2 app helps get rid of most of those pop-ups in popular web versions of apps, but it doesn’t get rid of the similar banners that appear at the top of Safari to recommend opening the current page in a different version. installed. app

The banner at the top of Safari is built into Safari and WebKit, so to get rid of them, you’ll need to uninstall the respective app from your device. Banish, on the other hand, removes pop-ups implemented on the websites themselves.

To use Banish, download it from the App Store and follow the on-screen instructions to give the app the necessary permission within Settings, Safari, and Extensions. You can learn more about Banish here.
