How to allow pop-ups on Mac in Google Chrome

Pop-ups can be both beneficial and irritating. Each website you visit every day has its own pop-ups showing you to subscribe to newsletters or some face ads. They are irritating. On the other hand, some pop-ups contain important information as well. If you’re a Mac user, then its default site pop-up blocker saves you from irritating pop-ups. Each of the browsing platforms like Safari, Google Chrome, or Firefox blocks pop-ups as default settings.

But these blockers can impact other software’s work as well. Even if you set your default pop-up blocker then you will not receive your important pop-ups as well. So, how you can enable pop up on your Macbook? Let’s find out.

How to allow pop-ups on Mac in Google Chrome

The most popular browser in the world doesn’t fall short when it comes to its capacity to manage arbitrary pop-up windows. To enable or disable pop-up windows in Chrome:

  • Access Privacy and security in the Chrome settings.
  • Click “Pop-ups and redirection” under “Site setting”
  • Choose Chrome’s default setting for pop-up blocking or allowing.
  • Chrome offers one-time exceptions via the address bar, much like Safari does. There will be a little symbol to show what has been blocked, and you may choose to enable pop-ups from that website (once or always).

You can allow pop-ups for some particular websites as well. For that use AdLock, the all-purpose solution we previously discussed, or make the following adjustments to Chrome’s settings to enable pop-ups for certain websites:

  • Access Privacy and security in the Chrome settings.
  • Click “Pop-ups and redirection” under “Site setting”
  • Add your website by selecting “Add” next to “Allowed to send pop-ups and redirects.”

It’s a good idea to know how to manage Safari’s pop-up blocker because it’s a popular Mac browser. To enable pop-ups and open Safari’s pop-up blocker:

  • Access Safari Preferences.
  • Select the Websites tab.
  • Click the sidebar’s “Pop-up Windows” link.
  • Open the menu and choose “Allow” for any live website.
  • Open the “When accessing other websites” menu and choose “Allow” as well.

The Safari pop-up blocker displays a little red notification in the address bar while it is active (indicating something is being blocked). You won’t even need to change any Safari pop-up blocker settings if you only need to check the blocked pop-up once because clicking on it will reveal the option to view the blocked window.

Using Safari’s pop-up blocker, you may enable pop-ups just for particular websites, or even only one website:

  • Open the website from which you wish to accept pop-up ads.
  • Access Safari Preferences.
  • Select the Websites tab.
  • Click the sidebar’s “Pop-up Windows” link.
  • Locate the desired website on the list, click the dropdown menu, and select “Allow.”

Utilizing AdLock is a simpler method if you don’t want to access the website every time you wish to enable pop-ups. Essentially an ad blocker, it contains the Allow List where you may add any website that should have pop-ups and prevents adverts, pop-ups, and alerts on the web.

How to allow pop-ups on Mac in Firefox

To enable pop-ups in Firefox, which is likely your primary browser, follow these steps:

  • Select Settings from the hamburger menu in Firefox by clicking on it.
  • In the sidebar, select Privacy & Security. Scroll down to Permissions.
  • Uncheck the option next to “Block pop-up windows”
  • If some websites should be exempt from the default settings, open the Exceptions dialogue box.

Now, you can enable your pop-ups irrespective of what browser you’re using. Make sure you’re not distracted by them.
