Allow or Block Pop-ups in Safari Mac Computer:

Computer users often notice pop-ups when they are working on the computer. These pop-ups can be useful or redundant either, but are actually considered a bit distracting especially when you are performing some important work on your Safari Mac computer and a pop-up becomes visible all of a sudden.

Friends, I also was very annoyed of late due to multiple pop-ups that I kept observing on my Safari Mac which I was able to block by following a few easy steps on Safari Mac.

You too can allow or block pop-ups on Safari Mac computer for one single website or for all websites simply by tweaking some settings on the Preferences option on your Safari Mac which are discussed here in detail vide this quick reference guide.

You must also remove or block pop-ups by clicking and seeing the status of pop-up messages by clicking on “When visiting other websites” tab.

If even after executing the steps mentioned above, you continue to see the pop-up then it could be because of the unwanted software running on your Safari Mac that may be facilitating the transmission of pop-up messages on your computer screen.
