Why is my Safari blocking websites on iPhone?

Safari blocks some sites but others still work.

Safari blocks websites and pages but sometimes it also allows certain websites and pages to work. There are many reasons why your iPhone is blocking websites or pages. It's not a new problem. You can search the forums for many of the reasons why Safari blocks sites.

If your iPhone does not allow certain sites to load it could because of the following reasons: Your wifi connection is weak, slow or intermittent. The network connection might be too busy at the time or because you have limited bandwidth. It could also be that the site is not available in your country.

Your mobile carrier is filtering or blocking website content or even entire sites. Apple has already mentioned this on their website.

I'm not talking about how to overcome the issue. This article is all about the steps you can take to fix the issue once you know what's causing it.

How to identify the cause of the issue: Check if there's a black mark (circle with dot) on your home screen. The mark indicates that the blocked websites are related to the mobile carrier. If you're not using a mobile carrier, you can disregard this.

Is the black mark present all the time or just for certain websites or pages? If the black mark is present all the time, it indicates that the site is blocked on your carrier. If the black mark is present only for certain websites or pages, then it might be a DNS issue.

Check the IP address of the site that is being blocked. It's usually not the same as the website address. If it is, then you might be looking at a DNS issue.

Does this occur on the same device at the same time or do you get this problem on multiple devices? If you experience this issue on a device other than the one that has the black mark on your home screen, then it's most likely to be a carrier issue. There are other causes to this issue: Unkown websites or pages are loading - This is the most common cause of Safari not allowing sites to load. Unwanted websites or pages are loading - This is the second most common cause of Safari not allowing sites to load.

How do I stop my iPhone from blocking websites?

You're at your computer and trying to access an online site.

But instead of opening the site, your iPhone just won't let you.

Why do I have this problem? Sometimes web browsers prevent web pages from loading, instead of displaying a message that says Sorry, This page can't be loaded. This is called blocking a page and is a feature of Safari, the default browser for the iPhone and iPad.

What causes this problem? There are a few reasons why pages load less than fully. In this case, the browser is blocking the page from loading completely. Here's what could happen:

Your iPhone has Safari set to block cookies (settings > safari > privacy > cookies). If you're trying to visit a site that requires a cookie to load, the site won't be able to load because your iPhone blocks cookies.

Your iPhone is set to deny all cookies by default (settings > safari > cookies). If you're visiting a site that relies on cookies to load, the site won't be able to load because your iPhone blocks all cookies.

Your iPhone is set to deny some or all third-party cookies. When this happens, it prevents some or all third-party cookies from loading (eg, from Facebook), so a third-party script may not be able to load. This includes a few third-party scripts used by some sites.

What do I do if my iPhone blocks pages? The first thing you need to do is make sure you're using a mobile version of the website. Some websites load differently on mobile devices. For example, if a page requires a third-party script to load, it won't load.

In this case, try visiting the page on your mobile device to see if that works. Sometimes mobile versions of pages load with all the bells and whistles of the desktop version, so they work as expected.

If you see the issue again, there's a chance the browser is blocking the page after all. If you can't get the page to load, try rebooting your iPhone to remove Safari's block cookies and/or deny third-party cookies settings.
