Hey, umm I tried to download the same thing on my Windows and didn’t get any popups and redirects. Probably turn off shields and turn it on and it should work. If this doesn’t work then try turning Ads & Locking to aggressive.
You can do that by going to settings ->Shields -There you’ll see an option to do that
Thanks for additional screenshots! It did not register this was iOS. The filter lists I referenced are only available on desktop and I think Android. I can’t help with iOS. It is different but I think there is a way to add blockers to iOS. Posting a link that may help. Hopefully community members familiar with ad-blocking on an iOS or support staff like @fanboynz will drop in to help.
Sorry for any confusion I injected into this thread! I missed this was for iOS.
@TheOnlyGoodDevil Have you tried updating Brave? Also, when you toggle-off shields, you get an option to report the website and the changes generally reflect in 2-3 working days. Chocoholic has already tagged fanboynz who will be able to do the needful.
As others said, unfortunately iOS doesn’t have the same capabilities as other devices. I spoke with Anthony Keane, who oversees mobile development, and he said it’s something they are working on for the future but they are restricted a bit at this time.
This was one of the most frustrating things about switching from Android to iPhone for me. There’s no way for custom filters or scriptlets, also no option to change to aggressively block trackers & ads. We get some protection but not nearly as much as otherwise would get.
Btw, if you get time, might want to listen in a bit to that call as they were talking a few things they were working on with Mobile. Link to listen is https://youtu.be/aI_SXUeW8IM
