Should I check box "Block pop-up"?

Post by Kirsten Ruhl » Mon Jul 09, 2018 9:05 am

Because of reading the post "Safe Finder/Safe Safari" and seeing Stephen's recommendation I wanted to see what my settings were.
I went to Safari>Preferences>Security

Shown below is the resulting window.

My question is: Should I check the box "Block pop-up windows"?

Edit: I will try attachment again, one more time and if I don't succeed I think my question might clear enough without it.

We have encountered a few legitimate sites that require pop ups to be available. I generally have that box unchecked, and I wonder if the popups and pounders have gone out of fashion or are blocked in some other way. In any case, I haven't seen one in quite a while.

Thank you, Stephen

I'll just leave it as is.
