If you still get pop-ups after disabling them, then you could have malware. Learn how to get rid of malware.

  2. Tap More More.
  3. Tap Settings and then Content Settings and then Block Pop-ups.

  2. Find a page that has pop-ups blocked for you.
  3. At the bottom, under "Pop-ups blocked," tap Always show.
