Do you want to manage pop-up tabs in the Samsung Internet browser? Learn how to enable or disable pop-up blockers on your browser.

Samsung Internet settings allow users to manage pop-up settings according to their preferences. Under the Settings menu, choose the Browsing Privacy Dashboard menu. Then, turn ON or OFF the Block pop-ups toggle button to allow or block pop-ups.

Alternatively, you can use the ad blocker app within your Android device to stop site pop-ups screens.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to configure and manage the pop-ups within the Samsung Internet browser.
