Manage Pop-ups in Safari on BrowserStack real iOS devices

The Safari settings on iOS devices enable you to enhance privacy and security while browsing web content using the Safari browser. You can also set browsing preferences such as setting favorites, changing home page view, selecting search engines, etc. by using the Safari settings.

Pop-ups that open while browsing content on websites are used as a medium of digital advertising and marketing, but can also be used to compromise device security through malicious software. On iOS devices, you can manage pop-ups by using the Block Pop-ups option in Safari settings.

Live enables you to manage pop-ups when you use the Safari browser on BrowserStack real iOS devices, to test different use cases for your websites.
