Safari blocks all types of pop-up windows by default. In that mix, it ends up blocking some legit ones. Here’s how to disable the popup blocker in Safari for all websites or specific ones on Mac.
Many websites offer useful popups to enter important details such as login details, captcha, forms and more. So it makes sense to allow pop-ups for certain websites.
How to disable popup blocker for all websites in Safari
It’s annoying to click the pop-up blocked notification every time you visit sites that require you to allow pop-ups. Fortunately, you can change Safari’s default behavior and get pop-ups while browsing.
To get started, open the Safari browser on your Mac. Then click on ‘Safari’ in the top left corner of the menu bar and select ‘Preferences’.
Click on the “Websites” tab.
In the ‘General’ column on the left, scroll down and select ‘Pop-up windows’.
Use the drop-down menu next to the ‘When visiting other websites’ option at the bottom left and choose ‘Allow’.
Safari will allow all future popup windows for all websites.

How to disable popup blocker for specific website in Safari
If you want to allow pop-ups for a specific website (such as a banking site), you can also do that in Safari. First, open Safari on your Mac, then browse to the websites you want to allow popups for.
Then click on “Safari” in the menu bar and select “Preferences”.
In Safari preferences, click the “Websites” tab.
Scroll down in the ‘General’ column and select ‘Pop-up windows’.
On the right, you can see the list of websites open in Safari and the “Block and Notify” option set for each site. Use the drop-down menu next to a site and select ‘Allow’. Repeat the same to allow popups for the other websites in the list.
That is it! Close the Preferences window and you’re good to go. When you’re done, you may want to update Safari on Mac to make the most of the latest pop-up blocking settings. Have fun browsing!
