How to Block Pop-Ups in Chrome on an iPhone 6

Pop-ups are an annoying feature to deal with when you are browsing the Internet. They take you away from the content you were trying to read, and they can cause you to have a lot of open Web browser windows, which can slow down your computer.

Pop-ups are even worse on a mobile device because the amount of computing resources available is typically less than on a computer so it can slow down your device. Plus, depending upon the format of the pop-up window, they can be difficult to close.

Fortunately, most Web browsers offer a way to block pop-ups, and the Chrome browser on your iPhone is no different. So, if you are frequently bothered by pop-up windows while browsing on your iPhone, then the steps in our guide below will show you how to block them.
