How To Block Facebook Ads On Iphone

If you use Facebook on an iOS device, you may have noticed an excessive amount of advertisements due to their ad-supported business model. If you’re feeling frustrated by this, don’t worry – this blog post has got you covered. We will provide step-by-step instructions on how to block Facebook ads on your iPhone.

Why Block Ads?

Ads can be disruptive and detract from the user experience. Plus, on mobile devices, ads can use up valuable data and contribute to slower browsing speeds.

Blocking Ads Directly on Facebook

Unfortunately, Facebook does not natively support ad-blocking. They make their revenue from these ads, and hence, don’t provide any direct way to block them. However, you can control the type of ads you see.

To do this, follow these steps:

  • Open the Facebook app and go to Settings & Privacy
  • Tap on Settings
  • Scroll down to Ads section, and tap on Ad Preferences
  • Tap on Ad Settings
  • From there you can control the different ad settings

Blocking Ads Using Third-Party Apps

Since Facebook does not provide a way to block ads natively, we turn to third-party apps that have this feature. These are often referred to as content Blockers. Below is a guide on how to use one of these apps, 1Blocker.

Note: This tutorial assumes you have already downloaded and installed the 1Blocker app from the App Store.

Follow these steps:

  • Open the 1Blocker app on your iPhone.
  • Scroll down and look for the Social Widgets section.
  • Toggle on the option Block Facebook Widgets.
  • Close the 1Blocker app.
  • Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  • Find and tap on Safari.
  • In the Safari settings, tap Content Blockers.
  • Ensure the toggle for 1Blocker is turned on.

Now, you should see a significant reduction or complete elimination of Facebook ads while browsing on your iPhone.


While it’s impossible to block Facebook ads natively, with the help of third-party apps, you can enjoy a smoother, ad-free experience. Be sure to adjust the settings to your liking and enjoy an ad-free Facebook experience!
