If you own a Samsung Galaxy S20 and get many pop-ups there is a built-in feature that can disable them.
Samsung devices are usually set to use the default web browser called the Samsung Internet app.
This app will open if you open a link from another app or click it to browse. However, if you are getting pop-up ads while using the Samsung Internet browser, they can be turned off.
You can easily disable the pop-up blocker for all websites on the Samsung browser.
The steps below will enable or disable the Block Pop-ups option on a Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra.
