Roadblock for iPad
A content blocker lets you control what web content should and shouldn't load, what is visible on webpages, and who can track you.
A content blocker can help you focus on the content that you care about, protect your privacy and security, improve webpage load time, and reduce Internet data usage.
Roadblock works on iOS 12.4 and above.
If you can’t enable Roadblock then you have web content restrictions in "Content & Privacy Restrictions" in "Screen Time". Go to "Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions > Content Restrictions > Web Content" and change the setting temporarily to "Unrestricted Access". Now go to "Safari > Content Blockers" and enable Roadblock.
Turn off Roadblock's switch in "Settings > Safari > Content Blockers" then turn it back on.
No. Roadblock uses features and technologies in Safari that protect your privacy.
Roadblock's in-app purchase is a one-time purchase. It is not a subscription so you are charged only once.
No. Roadblock's app for iPhone and iPad is different from the app for Mac. The in-app purchases are two different purchases.
The first few images are not considered images so they bypass the "Block Images" setting. To resolve this issue, you can use a "Hide Content" custom rule. Enter "google" in the "URL Filter" field and "img" in the "Selector" field.
No. The new YouTube redesign started causing issues in Safari even if you don't have a content blocker. We are working on reporting this issue to Apple so it will hopefully be fixed as soon as possible.
The "Reloading Failed" message is shown when there is an error reloading the content blocker in Safari. It is sometimes caused by a malformed rule. In rare occasions, Safari’s services that reload blockers crash and cause this issue. Try Disabling the custom rule and then add another simple custom rule and enable it. If you are still getting the "Reloading Failed" message then it is a Safari service crash. Reboot the device and the everything will work as expected.
The message that is displayed when you open the extension in Safari will remain the same whether you allowed the web extension on the listed websites or not.
