    Block videos from auto-playing on iOS Safari?
    How do I prevent videos from playing on Safari for iOS? I'd like to block all of them so I don't waste data.

    Hi Scott,
    It seems to depend on which version of iOS you're running. See here: Disable autoplay video in iOS 10 Safari? - Apple Community

    Cheers,

    Install a content blocker;

    AdGuard
    AdBlock
    AdBlock Plus
    Ghostery
    Firefox Focus
    Malwarebytes

    I have all of these installed, but only 2 activated as they all have different levels of blocking ads/video content.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Which two do you have installed? I already have Adblock Plus on all my systems.
