When it comes to the pleasures in life, online pop-ups rank somewhere between papercuts and dead phone batteries.
The good news is that if you use Google Chrome as your web browser, you can block pop-ups automatically with just a few clicks.
And in fact, you might not even have to click anything at all:Chrome blocks popups by default. If you’re seeing them, at some point that setting got changed, and it’s time to set things right again.
Note, however, that pop-ups are different from ads. Pop-ups are new windows that appear while you’re browsing and block your screen, while ads are just pictures or banners that appear on most sites.

How to stop Google Chrome pop-ups
1. Launch the Chrome browser on your Mac or PC. Click on the three vertical dots at the top-right, then select “Settings” from the dropdown menu.
2. Scroll down and click on “Advanced” to show more options, and then scroll down a bit more to “Site Settings.” It’s in the “Privacy and security” section.
3. Click “Pop-ups and redirects.”
4. Toggle the switch beside “Blocked,” and make sure its white circle is on the left. Next to it should read “Blocked (recommended).”
5. If you want, you can also add specific exceptions here. Sites in the “Allow” section will show pop-ups even while they’re blocked elsewhere.
If you’ve decided to turn off the pop-up blocker, putting sites into the “Block” section will stop their pop-ups even while they’re allowed elsewhere.
