Pop-up blockers prevent unwanted web pages from appearing on your screen while browsing the internet. However, sometimes necessary pop-ups are blocked by the system. The pop-up blocker can be disabled for certain sites. This article gives instructions on how to turn on/off the Pop-up Blocker and how to allow pop-ups on specific websites in Safari.
Disabling and Enabling Pop-up Blocker
Safari does not have an "allowed sites" function. To enable popups only for certain websites in Safari, you will have to turn off the pop-up blocker while on the site and turn it on again when leaving the site.
- Open Safari and select Preferences from the Safari menu.
- Select Security. You can enable pop-up blocker by selecting the checkbox Block pop-up windows, or disable pop-up blocker by deselecting it.
