Are you tired of those pesky pop-up blockers on your Mac Chrome browser? Well, look no further! In this article, we will guide you through the process of disabling the pop-up blocker on Mac Chrome.

Step 1: Launch Chrome

The first step is to open your Google Chrome browser. Locate the Chrome icon in your Applications folder or simply click on the Dock icon if it’s already there. Once launched, you should see the familiar Chrome window.

Step 2: Access Settings

To disable the pop-up blocker, we need to access the Settings menu. You can do this by clicking on the three vertical dots located in the top-right corner of the Chrome window. A drop-down menu will appear.


If you prefer using keyboard shortcuts, you can press Command + , (comma) simultaneously to open the Settings menu directly.

Step 3: Open Advanced Settings

In the drop-down menu, scroll down until you see an option labeled “Settings.” Click on it to open a new tab with various settings options.

Note: Alternatively, you can type “chrome://settings” in your address bar and press Enter to access the settings directly.

Step 4: Disable Pop-Up Blocker

In the left-hand sidebar of the settings tab, locate and click on “Privacy and security.” This will expand a list of options related to privacy and security settings in Chrome.

In this list, find and click on “Site Settings.”

Note: You can also directly access site settings by typing “chrome://settings/content” in your address bar and pressing Enter.

Scroll down until you see an option called “Pop-ups.” Click on it to open the pop-up settings.

  • Tip: You can also use the search bar at the top of the settings tab and type “pop-ups” to quickly find the relevant option.

In the pop-up settings, you will see a toggle switch labeled “Blocked (recommended).” This indicates that the pop-up blocker is currently enabled.

To disable the pop-up blocker, simply click on the toggle switch. It should turn gray and display “Allowed.”

Step 5: Test Your Changes

Congratulations! You have successfully disabled the pop-up blocker on your Mac Chrome browser.

Now, go ahead and test it by visiting a website that usually triggers a pop-up. You should no longer see any blocking notifications or windows.


If you ever want to re-enable the pop-up blocker, simply follow these steps again and toggle the switch back to its original position.

Note: Disabling your pop-up blocker might expose you to potential security risks. Make sure you trust the websites you visit and exercise caution when interacting with unexpected or suspicious pop-ups.

In Conclusion

In this tutorial, we learned how to disable the pop-up blocker on Mac Chrome. By following these simple steps, you can have full control over which websites can display pop-ups in your browser. Remember to use this feature responsibly and stay vigilant while browsing!
