Hey All, We are looking to disable iOS Safari Pop-Up Blocker via a script through Jamf to all of our users. We use a LMS that needs to open training content via a second tab and for some reason Safari Pop-Up Blocker is preventing this content from loading.

Curious if you were able to find a solution to this, we would like to be able to do the same.

Is the Pop-ups block/allow restriction in a config profile not working for you? Since this is iPadOS you can't run a script on the device so it's either a config profile delivered via MDM or touching the device.

@mainelysteve I think the question has been asked because the profile does not work. Safari continues to block pop ups even after it is applied. Try it for yourself and see if you can get Safari to allow pop ups on iOS/iPadOS.

Same issue. The configuration profile to "Allow Pop-ups" doesn't seem to work on iPadOS, haven't tested with iOS but I'm pretty sure this is the same for iOS.

so how are we to turn this off? I have testing software that now has popups (why a testing website would do this is beyond me knowing how awful popups are). I now have to turn off the pop up blocking in Safari - on 967 iPads. My boss looked at me weird that they students may have to do these 4 steps on their own and wants to use Jamf to do it. what a pickle.

I've been using Jamf for 5 years and have never seen the configuration profile to allow popups actually work. The devices always show that the popup blocker is still enabled.

For what it's worth in Jamf School the setting is labeled "Allow user to turn off popup blocker". In Jamf Pro it's just "Pop-Ups" Allow/Block.

@mainelysteve Thank you. I've been fighting with this for an hour, and your post clarified it completely. The "Allow" option means allow the user to change the Block Popups setting from its default of blocking pop-ups, not actually change the setting to allow pop-ups.

That is too bad. Why would they not have a feature or app configuration setting where we can push this down to our devices. Apple needs to allow management system more control over the devices that are enrolled.
