How to Block Pop-Ups in UC Browser

Highlights

  • Pop-up blockers are built-in on popular browsers
  • In UC Browser, ad blocking and pop-up blocking are linked
  • Here's how to disable pop-ups in UC Browser

If you've ever experienced the frustration of a pop-up flying across the screen while reading an article, you've probably wondered how to get rid of it. On mobile, it's much more annoying, given pop-ups tend to take over the entire screen. With most modern browsers - like Google Chrome, UC Browser, Opera, and Firefox - you don't have to worry, since they have a built-in pop-up blocker. This enables you to automatically prevent pop-up ads, although it's not entirely foolproof. We looked at how different browsers handle pop-ups, and the most popular browser in India (just ahead of Chrome) is UC Browser.

UC Browser doesn't have a standalone setting for blocking pop-ups. Instead, its ad-block function takes care of both ads and pop-ups. That's bad for publishers (like us) who depend on the ads they serve, so if there's a website you like, consider white-listing them.

Here's how you can block pop-ups in UC Browser on Android and iOS. While UC Browser is the most popular browser in India - across desktop, mobile, and tablet combined - we've also written about Chrome, Firefox, and Opera, if you don't use UC Browser.
