Introduction on how to block Pop Up windows in Internet Browsers
Many people have problems with Internet browser pop-ups, those annoying little windows that pop up everywhere even without your consent. Pop-ups – whether pornographic, spam, or just plain useless – are a nuisance and a danger to your computer. However, they can be effectively neutralized with the right steps. This article describes various ways to block pop-ups.
How to block pop-ups in browser
Enable pop-up blocker in Mozilla Firefox. Like many other browsers, the pop-up blocker should already be enabled by default. If for whatever reason this is not the case, go to Firefox > Preferences > Content and then hit the "Block Pop-Up Windows" option.
Turn on the pop-up blocker in Microsoft Internet Explorer. To block them, click on Tools>Options>Privacy and then check the "Block pop-ups" option.
Turn on the pop-up blocker in Google Chrome. Google Chrome should automatically block pop-ups by default, but you can always make sure the setting is turned on by clicking in the Chrome menu, then choosing Settings > Show Settings > Advanced > Privacy > Content Settings > Pop-Ups and then ticking the recommended option “Do not allow pop-ups to appear on the Sites”.
Turn on the pop-up blocker in Apple Safari. Open Safari and then click Safari > Preferences > Security. Select the "Blocking Pop-Up Windows" option.
Block pop-ups in Microsoft Edge
In the new Microsoft Edge go to Settings > Privacy and security > Security > block pop-ups
Turn on Block.
