Silentium is a powerful ad-blocker with additional features that can help you save on your data.

Easy To Understand

What is it about?

Silentium describes themselves as an "ethical" blocker. This means that while the blocker itself does a one-size-fits-all blocking from the get-go, you can add specific sites that serve tasteful mobile ads to your whitelist directly from within Safari. This way, you can still support those few sites while blocking the annoying ads from everyone else. Silentium also has iCloud sync so you can sync your whitelisted sites across multiple devices so that means less work required from you if you use your iPhone and an iPad.

For those who...

  • Want a simple and straightforward content blocker
  • Require whitelisting capabilities
  • Want iCloud sync

Not for those who...

  • Don't care about whitelisting capability
  • Need more customization
  • Don't need iCloud syncing

Why we love it

Silentium is simple and easy to set up. Whitelisting is a simple task and having your whitelisted sites go with you through iCloud sync is handy to have.

App Store Description

Silentium is the best ad blocker for iOS. It makes browsing the web on your iPhone and iPad even more enjoyable by removing annoying ads.

◆ Websites will load up to 4 times faster
◆ Consume less battery and data
◆ No longer let ad networks track you or your browsing
◆ No longer show annoying social media buttons, cookie banners, and more

SAVE YOUR BATTERY AND DATA

Ads can cause pages to load slower, consume more battery, and eat up your data plan. With Silentium, sites will use up to 25% less battery life and up to 50% less of your data plan. This lets you use your data for content you want, not ads.

SECURITY

Silentium also blocks a lot of nasty stuff like malware, tracking services and cookies. Enabling our privacy filter you will make sure that you are always be protected.

WHITE LISTING

We believe in “ethical ad blocking”. Some sites serve tasteful, unobtrusive ads. If you trust and want to support one of these, you can White List it. This will enable ads and scripts on that specific site only.

NOT ONLY AN AD BLOCKER

Silentium provides advanced features like a low traffic mode (that allows you to save even more data), a filter for cookie-law banners (that removes those “this site uses cookies” warnings) and a basic parental control filter (that blocks adult websites).

ALL SYNCED UP

Silentium syncs all your rules and preferences via iCloud so that you will have a consistent experience on all your devices.

WE’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU

We strive to make Silentium the best ad blocker on iOS!
