Block or allow pop-ups in Chrome

By default, Google Chrome blocks pop-ups from automatically showing up on your screen. When a pop-up is blocked, the address bar will be marked 'Pop-up blocked' Pop-up blocked. You can also decide to allow pop-ups.

If you still get pop-ups after disabling them:

Turn pop-ups on or off

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Chrome app Chrome.
  2. Tap More More and then Settings Settings.
  3. Tap Content settings and then Block pop-ups.
  4. Turn Block pop-ups on or off.

Allow pop-ups for a specific site

Not all pop-ups are ads or spam. Some legitimate websites display web content in pop-up windows.

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Chrome app Chrome.
  2. Go to a page where pop-ups are blocked.
  3. At the bottom, under 'Pop-ups blocked', tap Always show.

Fix issues with pop-ups

If you're on a page with a pop-up or dialogue that won't go away, try these steps:

  1. Turn on your phone's aeroplane mode.
  2. Quit Google Chrome.
  3. Close the tab with the bad pop-up or dialogue box.

My site's pop-ups are being blocked

Chrome blocks pop-ups that users might not find useful.

If pop-ups get blocked on a site that you own, go to the Abusive Experience Report. In the report, you can find out if there are any issues found with your site that you can address.
