Other Comments

At this time of writing there has been a slew of ad blockers to try out for free and paid. At first I had love Purify and was my go to ad blocker. However, something has recently come along which I love better. So give the Adguard - Adblock and Privacy Protection for the Web a look at. It offers more in terms of what you like to block and plus it is free.

Remember that you will need to turn on Crystal after you install it for the first time. To activate Crystal you just need to the following steps:

1. Go to the Apple Settings
2. Go to the Safari button and double tap on that
3. Find the Content Blocker button and double tap on this
4. Now Enable Crystal

This will now active Crystal to work with your Safari.

NOTE: Be aware that some site may actually block you from seeing the site if it detects that you are blocking ads on their site. They do this because they
make money from those ads and feel they will lose money.

Happy Surfing!
