Chapter 8. Exploring the Internet > Blocking Pop-Up Windows

Blocking Pop-Up Windows

When you open or close a Web page, some pages display pop-up windows to advertise products and services or request login and other information. Pop-up windows can be extremely annoying. Most of the time you end up closing them. To avoid the continual borage of pop-up windows, you can block them in Safari. When you set Safari to block pop-up windows (), the program only stops pop-up windows that appear when you open or close a page, but not when you click a link.

Block Pop-Up Windows

Click the Safari menu, and then click Preferences.

Click Security.

Select the Block Pop-Up Windows check box.

TIMESAVER Click the Safari menu, and then click Block Pop-up Windows to display a check mark on the menu.

Click Block to confirm the option selection to block pop-up windows.

Click the Close button.
