General advice

  1. In most cases, the popup blocking setting can be found under Settings or Preferences.
  2. It is usually considered an advanced setting.
  3. For mobile devices, this may be in the device's settings, or within the preferences or settings of a particular app.
  4. Try searching for "pop-up blocker <browser> and/or <device>" where <browser> is the name of the browser and <device> is the name of the device that you are using.
    1. E.g., "pop-up blocker chrome mac" would return instructions for pop-up blocking on google chrome for Mac OS.
  5. Look for the logo similar to what is shown below to indicate a pop-up is being blocked.  Select the icon and change the settings to your preferences.
