Pop-ups are one of the biggest culprits, and they’re much more annoying on mobile, as opposed to the desktop. For one, they often take over the whole screen. And two, it’s not exactly convenient swiping them away with your fingers, unlike on a PC with a mouse. Google Chrome is one of the most popular browsers across desktop, mobile, and tablet combined and to block pop-ups with Chrome, simply follow these steps. Of course, none of the methods are completely fool-proof, so some pop-ups will inevitably squeeze their way in.
