Image from store PopUpOFF - Popup and overlay blocker
Description from store Hey! Have you seen the terrific rating above? You must be wondering: “Is it finally a good popup blocker? Should I try it?” Do read the text below to find out if that's something you'd like to give a try. So, answering your questions: “No and Yes” - it isn’t some “good” popup blocker. PopUpOFF is brilliant: https://github.com/RomanistHere/PopUpOFF/issues/16 - and you should definitely try it if you are as annoyed with popups, cookie notifications, overlays and other sticky things that overlay content as I do. Why? - PopUpOFF doesn’t just block some popups that other developers paid for, but YOU are in control of it. You decide not to have any single overlay on the screen or casually remove only the most annoying things (hi cookie notifications and subscription popups). - You can unlock and read PAID content FOR FREE on some websites (see the video above). - Size of this extension is 100 times less than any other average popup blocker in the store. Size doesn’t matter? Well… I wouldn't be so sure about that. - PopUpOFF is a non-commercial and open-source project. It means no ads, no tracking, everything it has is available for you for free and forever. I am RomanistHere and I’m giving you this piece of better web. Drawbacks? - It still is in development, so there could be bugs or imperfect solutions, I’m working on it solo and there are other things in the world to do. So be gentle, I created it for myself back then, but now I’m doing it for you. - PopUpOFF is as addictive as it gets. After you start using it, there would be no way back. You were warned :) Sounds interesting? Go get it. Write “hello” to me, share the feedback. Check what else I’m doing. There are probably other pieces of better web. Be cool, be gentle, help me make the world better. Not saying goodbye. Have a better life now :) Useful links: GitHub (tech description): https://github.com/RomanistHere/PopUpOFF Changelog: https://popupoff.org/changelog Stay updated on my projects: https://twitter.com/RomanistHere Donate: https://popupoff.org/#donate

  • (2023-12-03) Eddie Ortiz: Me salio un popup de aviso de bloqueo de anuncios, y lo elimine con ublock pero se congelo la pagina. O sea me obligaba a eliminar el bloqueo de uBlock. Hasta que descubri esta extension despues que habia probado otras que no me agradaron Excelente extension, la configure en modo agresivo y resolvi rapido. Me elimino el pop up y la pagina web no se congelo, tampoco el uBlock. En otras palabras me resolvio. La recomiendo. Ah! free!. Nada como otros que hay que soltar los $.
  • (2023-10-29) Iresh Dilan: Great extension! There was a very annoying popup of a website which couldn't block by 2 major ad blockers. But surprisingly the PopUpOFF blocked it nicely! Thanks guys! :)
  • (2023-10-25) Dr. Bader AlTamimi: This is the best developed extension or software for that matter that I have ever tried. The setup process is out of this world, with just the right amount of information provided in a very clear and easy to read and understand method. I am truly amazed and think this should be a model to follow by every developer. Thank you and please support this project people, the numbers I saw are way too low. Even this feature of including the number of supporters is brilliant! It made me join and the way the support page was designed was even more brilliant. No pressures, no annoyances, even when I selected the amount knowing that it meant monthly, it gave me the option to choose a one time payment! I love this. Thank you. Good luck with everything.
  • (2023-10-14) Mohamed Abou Al Hagag: I tried and it works fine! but I don't depend on it much (I do not fell your tool deserve 5 rating! so I give you 4)
  • (2023-10-09) Dr.Ne0Gen3tic (Forensic Buro of Quantum): Der mit Abstand beste PopUp und Overlay Blocker hier im Webstore! Der Entwickler hat sich sichtlich Mühe gegeben, denn dieser Blockt Nervige Overlay effektiv und lässt sie verschwinden oder verschiebt sie aus dem Sichtfeld. So werden z.B. Nervige Cookie Consent PopUps aber auch sonstige andere PoPUps erst gar nicht sichtbar oder verschwinden, sofort! Es ist kein Werbeblocker, sondern ein Overlay oder "Modal" Blocker der wirklich, sehr effektiv arbeitet, ich bin wirklich sehr begeistert! Auch die verschiedenen Modi sind wirklich gut gelungen!
  • (2023-09-07) Gaurav: Very useful extension and remarkable how only a few clever devs like this guy thought of creating something like this to eliminate the terrible web popups. The few things I found annoying were that its own popup to reload the page appears too quickly out of nowhere and disappears before we can even click it - this is super annoying. Also sometimes the extension breaks when Chrome updates.
  • (2023-07-27) Liam Weber-Sadler: Amazing app, really helpful to have different levels of blocking!
  • (2023-06-12) Евгений Владимирович: Супер , но нужны поправки уже почти год прошёл без обновлений
  • (2023-05-02) Julia Bacik: It works really really well for me, it was just what I needed. The constant pop-ups used to overwhelm me easily and slow down my research a lot. This extension is quiet and hidden, a great QoL piece. The only thing that bothers me is I can't upload files to websites (social media, online converters) by dragging them and dropping, even in dormant mode :(
  • (2023-04-28) Dmitriy Ritz: Thought I am finally found the extension that does-it-all. Very soon after installation I started to realize that I still need to use AdBlock. After using the extension for a few days I noticed that I have to manually disable it on almost all websites I’m using because it blocked more than half of the essential scripts. Also, the interface is very outdated. The last update of the extension was 3 (!) years ago. I am confident that the potential of this extension is huge but the developer needs to monitor the issues and update the extension much more frequently. I’d like to thank the developer tho - I truly believe this extension my become #1 in it’s category
  • (2023-04-26) L. Oh: It attempted to work, using Aggressive mode, but page still wouldn't show content after the popup went away.
  • (2023-04-02) n ascentt: I was looking for an extension like this for years and now that I've found it I can't use the internet without it.
  • (2023-03-20) S.N.F.N LuckyFetus: An absolute must have and marvelous extension imo, couldn't recommend enough 10/10 \\[T]// ggs
  • (2023-03-17) гагик мартиросян: Хорошее расширение! Понравилось управление инструментом из контекстного меню.Очень удобно парой кликов удалять со страниц сайтов все лишние и ненужные элементы. 5 звезд моя оценка! Спасибо разработчику!
  • (2023-03-12) foxxers btw: works well and doesn't impede on your privacy
  • (2023-02-26) Max Sysoev: This should be must-have in current modern web
  • (2022-12-20) Jānis Ķengurs: Something missing- options can select full productivity, then works on www.tvnet.lv but it blocks some releted stories to right too off in https://www.thelocal.fr/20221210/frances-mediawan-buys-majority-stake-in-brad-pitts-plan-b/ So not ideal for every site Update- Not working on tiktok.
  • (2022-10-19) Manuel Augman García: It works!!!! Thank you!!!
  • (2022-10-16) Mahdi Eshaghi: Works really great! I've found this pop-up blocker the best.
  • (2022-09-18) Avik Agrawal: very helpful on many sites ... it improved my experience 👍 to the devlopers I tried many other alternatives but found this to be the best
  • (2022-09-17) Mike Shipway: This is one of an elite few extensions and add-ons that I search for and install. Gone are the days (and the overlays and pop-ups) when you could block the irritations manually one at a time. Now they're persistent, prevalent and aggravating to the point of distraction. You'd spend a minute reading an article only to be constantly nudged by annoyances. You can set this extension to aggressive mode and voilà... the irritations gone. Highly recommended. 10 out of 10.
  • (2022-09-02) Low Key: Works like a charm for annoying overlays
  • (2022-09-01) Bert L: There is this site the keeps on redirecting me to unwanted sites. Like there are hidden ads in this site. This extension fixed that. I can access that site now without any redirection.
  • (2022-07-28) Bob Loucks: This really IS a hidden gem! Go into the settings and be sure to set it to your taste...medium... aggressive ?? I love it when stuff DOES what it SAYS :)
  • (2022-06-27) Brandon H: Works better than expected, thank you!
  • (2022-05-17) Codo Coderson: At last, an extension that sweeps off "Cookies" and "Dowload my eBook" overlays. Cannot live without it anymore. And the dev is a great guy! My Settings: Moderate mode by default and, if I notice something may be missing, Alt+X for Dormant mode.
  • (2022-04-26) Pat MySecret: This is my new favoriite PopupBlocker. I also keep "Nope 2 Overlays" to do a manual block of things that Auto blockers don't catch. 4/26 Yes, I see what the author is saying now. Though the WhiteList isn't formally listed, a leftclick choice on the PopupOff icon for particular sites will be retained. Thank you Extension Creator! ;)
  • (2022-04-20) ერეკლე ქადაგიძე: This extension is a hidden gem! Thank you @Romanist Here, I appreciate the work you've done.
  • (2022-04-14) Anthony Congiano: Works extremely well on even the most aggravating site's overlays. The settings options help, if the overlay popups and redirects keep happening, just move up the settings from Dormant to moderate, or to aggressive.
  • (2022-03-11) Steven Herrmann: I read the instructions, I put aggressive and anti-paid on and it still doesn't remove the paywall for NYT! A few times it seemed like it worked for 5 seconds or so and then it came right back on preventing me from reading! I tried a combination of every setting, no luck! I don't like giving bad ratings so I still gave this 5 stars lol! But there are a lot of good reviews so hopefully im doing something wrong and the dev or someone can reply and help me! Thanks! 😊
  • (2022-02-07) Sherif Aliti: 3 star for effort but if missing turn ON-OFF function every blocker is useless
  • (2022-01-28) CHIRAG SINGHAL: I really like the aggressive mode. It do the same thing that i used to do with adguard custom rules manually creating a lot of user rules and working too much and sometimes which are not easy to make . This extension sometimes shutter, works after sometime, have performance issues but i'm sure developer will work on them . Seems like something fishing going though too (https://i.imgur.com/9qyRepg.png)
  • (2022-01-15) Herndon High: Works! Big thanks to the developer(s)
  • (2021-12-22) Mark Gerber: This is the best pop up blocker I have ever used. Until I now I had 3 or 4 pop up blockers installed and I still got loads of pop ups. This one is finally blocking all those idiotic pop ups. So many websites try to stop you from leaving with a pop up that asks if you are sure you want leave. Of course I want to leave when I close the window. This extension takes care of that. This extension was sorely needed and you can be certain that I will be spreading the word. @Romanist Here, thank you so much for this great extension.
  • (2021-12-09) Mark E: This is excellent. Not perfection yet, but what it already has works so well. Finally a de-bullsh** browsing experience.
  • (2021-12-09) George Hank: Works Really good. Stops the junk on a web page from appearing.
  • (2021-11-22) Ahmed Seoudi: It really works! Just a feature request. I would like if possible that it doesn't wait for the page to fully load before t removes the overlays. Other than that it's a 5/5 from me!
  • (2021-10-26) Claribel Sanchez: great app, although some sites are fully unbothered by it. lol.
  • (2021-10-10) Marco Schramm: First, I was skeptical because Google Chrome Safe Browsing showed an alert that this extension isn't safe. But I really need a pop-up blocker and so far no extension did its job well. But this is the first I found which really blocks these annoying pop-ups. Thank you very much for this add-on, keep it up!
  • (2021-08-27) Michael Kruse: Update 2021-08-27: I'm not a web developer or a chrome extension developer, so I can't confirm whether that json file proves anything, but I appreciate the prompt response and attempts at transparency. Changing back to 5 stars. Update 2021-08-25: Why does this app require access to my browsing history? I love it, but I won't use it if it's harvesting my data... Please explain? It works too well sometimes. I keep it on 'Moderate' level, but at least once or twice a week it will end up blocking a dropdown menu or a necessary pop-up from one of my banking websites. Then it'll take me a few seconds to remember that its probably this add-on which is causing the issue, so I'll set it to 'Dormant' and then the issue is resolved. There's not much that can be done about this, since the add-on is working as intended. Although perhaps you could add all the major banking websites to the default whitelist?
  • (2021-08-13) NoobMaster69: really fantastic
  • (2021-06-10) Sir Anthony: Defiantly stops those aggravating overlay popups. I set it to manual so that if a site has hidden overlays (where I click anywhere but the click activates a new redirect or malware webpage) it gets stopped but it won't affect legitimate forwards. Works effectively well!
  • (2021-04-24) Paul: In one word: awesome. Just a little question: does it disable all those 'legitime interests' and consent things or does it only make them disappear ?
  • (2021-03-31) Pramod: The best free overlay & popup ad blocker in the market with 3 easy to choose modes and the preferences are saved for each website visited. Dormant mode is very friendly to all the day to day websites (e.g., banking) and moderate or aggressive modes are needed for few news websites with annoying popups. Developer promptly responds to your feedback or questions. I wish I found it sooner!
  • (2021-03-17) Unverified Joe: Works perfect when i'm combining with Avira Browser Safety. No less no more! Just perfect! Thank!
  • (2021-03-06) Caio Fr.: it really block any pop up and overlay bad things
  • (2021-02-12) ééé ééé: i like it it works as described what i like more about it is that you removed google analytics from it that's the best choice you have made i support you for doing it i wish you good luck from algeria :) it's really cool that we have many young developers who care about privacy and make life in internet much easier for us. PS: i tested it along with uBlockorigine extention they work perfectly together i hope you share your experience with them and help each other in developing both your skills and addon together. :)
  • (2021-02-01) j k: Features are good, but there is no option to disable right click context menu in the browser Please add options to enable or disable context menu

Latest issues

  • (2023-06-09, v:2.0.2) Rick Slansky: Site beating your extension
    I installed Popupoff for using 1 site that had annoying and dangerous overlay popups: eztv.re Even in Aggressive mode it is still launching new tabs with ads, on most of the elements. Many of the ads trigger avast antivirus. If you research sites that can beat your extension, this would be a good candidate.
  • (2022-05-15, v:2.0.2) Mark E: Effectiveness lowered
    Has something changed? In the last few days blocking has become a lot less effective on Moderate. E.g. email prompt coming up here: https://www.purpleparking.com/gatwick-airport-parking on moderate. Plus many other examples.
  • (2022-04-21, v:2.0.2) Christopher Sullivan: Blooket
    Can you greenlight Blooket? There are no advertising popups, but I'm having trouble editing my sets because it blocks them from popping up.
  • (2021-03-10, v:2.0.2) Bergg Uscha: not working: asics
    https://www.asics.com/de/de-de/ the initial overlay is not removed on moderate, but settings are removed on moderate. works only on aggressive.
  • (2021-03-10, v:2.0.2) Bergg Uscha: Cookies are saved
    My reasoning was that cookies popup, if not answered, would be suppressed by PPO, hence, no decision yes or no. Why are the cookies being saved anyway. Is that normal?
  • (2020-12-07, v:2.0.1) CB: pop unders
    does this block pop UNDERS ? thanks
  • (2020-11-08, v:1.1.9) Maurice Verdonk: Found a site where the extension does not work 100%.
    On this site ... https://www.digitaltrends.com/news/shower-power-speaker-powered-by-your-shower/ Your extension removes several things with Hard Mode but there is still some kind of overlay? I can scroll the page but the overlay makes it more difficult to read. It is not a must, because I got to that site through Reddit, but reporting it none the less seemed like a nice thing to do.
  • (2020-05-27, v:1.1.4) Hypnotoad: Read Browsing History?
    I'm simply curious as to why my browsing history would need to be read by your add-on. I'll admit that I'm not too educated on the subject, but is there any particular reason why this is needed?
  • (2020-03-12, v:1.1.4) Leo Alves: videos in fullscreen
    I saw in the comment section someone saing about the videos when going in fullscreen your application kills or crashes the video, it happend to me in a anime website that I viseted. https://anitube.be/ Here is the link. Thank you for this amasing add-on.
