No need to report any of these, thanks!
A recent change on
youtube.com seems to circumvent Content Blockers. Note that this was not caused by a Wipr or macOS update.
This issue is being worked on in the upstream lists – if it’s fixable it’ll probably be fixed soon.
I haven’t been able to reproduce myself, but I’m hearing that signing out seems to help.
There’s a long-standing bug in macOS 11 “Big Sur” where Safari keeps “forgetting” about Content Blockers; even if everything is setup correctly, Wipr will have no effect on websites, including the
The extensions will still appear in Safari’s
Extensions, and they will still be checked.
Some users report that keeping Wipr open in the Dock prevents this from happening (which definitely shouldn’t matter), other say a manual refresh fixes the issue temporarily.
Please complain to Apple, maybe they’ll fix it someday!
Send Feedback. On macOS: launch the Wipr app, and you’ll find it in the menubar under
Help. On iOS: launch the Wipr app and you’ll find it in the
About Wipr screen. This includes debug information that I need in order to assist you. If you try to contact me otherwise, I will ask you to do this instead. If you absolutely cannot do this, please at least let me know.
If your issue is with the app itself (not a web page), and it’s not answered by the FAQ, this is all you need to know! Otherwise, read on.
Before contacting me, please make sure the issue persists with the most recent blocklist. Select
Automatic Refresh in the app and it will let you know if it’s up to date.
Please also make sure that Content Blockers are enabled for the site and as a global default. On iOS: tap the
aA button, select
Website Settings, and make sure
Use Content Blockers is on; then in the Settings app select
Content Blockers under
SETTINGS FOR WEBSITES and make sure the switch next to
All Websites or
Other Websites is on. On macOS: select
Safari from the menu bar, then
Settings for This Website… and make sure that
Enable content blockers is on; then in Safari’s Preferences, under
Content Blockers, make sure that

Please be specific about what the issue is, and include a link to the page where you have encountered it. Screenshots are welcome!
Note that Wipr does not work inside other apps, only on web pages opened in Safari – so it will definitely not block any ads in, say, a YouTube app.
I don’t offer support for the old Extension Gallery version.
So to recap:
Send Feedbackfunction in the app – do not just email me
So help me, if you don’t include a link to a page where the issue occurs.
I probably won’t reply unless I need more info. Saying hi to everybody has been nice, but I’ve realized it’s an unsustainable time sink. If you get no reply, rest assured: I read every single report!
Please first make sure you are running the latest version of both the app and iOS/macOS.
If that doesn’t resolve your issue, please contact me using the
Send Feedback button you’ll find in the app itself. This will attach some additional information to your message, so I won’t have to ask you for it later. If that is not possible, please remember to tell me what device you’re using, and what app you’re talking about :)
Please describe the issue in as much detail as possible.
You can email me.
