Browse Privately With Script Blockers

Ads aren't the only thing on the internet that you may want to block. There are also tracking scripts to serve up specific ads based on your interests as well as find out more about you. Each one of these apps blocks tracking scripts allowing you to browse privately right in Safari.

David Graham & Josh Peek

Ka-Block! is a content blocker for Safari that prevents ads and tracking scripts from slowing down web pages you visit.

Many sites use third-party scripts to track your behavior across the web, causing pages to load slowly and draining your phone’s battery. Blocking these scripts dramatically improves page load time, data usage, and battery life.

- Fast, curated filter list
- Open source
- Also available for Safari on Mac

Protecting privacy and performance on the web is important. We hope you enjoy Ka-Block!
