There are several problems, when activating the content blocker. Therefore we decided to improve the user workflow.

What to change

The new workflow is put into three steps.

  • Step 1: The user will see a notification overlay, which prevents the user to use/see the main app. The notification is a combination of what we currently showing in our second on-boarding slide and the main screen. The headline of the notification overlay, which is designed like a default iOS notification, is " Turn on Adblock Plus in your Safari settings first". After that we have a (standard iOS) blue button with the label "1. Open iOS Settings". This button will link to the general iOS settings (we're not able to link to the Safari -> Content Blockers menu. The reasons are iOS restrictions). After the blue button there are two other textual items, which are: "2. Go to Safari → Content Blockers" and "3. Enable Adblock Plus". After that there is a visual separator (little 2px dots) and another label which says "Watch how-to video" (color: standard blue). When clicking this label, the how-to video opens and behave like it currently does.
  • Step 2: The user needs to activate Adblock Plus in the Safari settings. Step 1 will be visible in the app as long as this is not done.
  • Step 3: After the user activated Adblock Plus in the Safari settings, a confirmation message will be displayed in the Adblock Plus app. This will include a check mark icon, followed by a visual separator (same dots such as in step 1). Below that, the Acceptable Ads introduction will follow.

Headline: You're in control

Text: Annoying ads are always blocked, while nonintrusive ads are displayed by default. You can change this setting at any time in:
Acceptable Ads → Allow some nonintrusive ads

After that, there is a (standard iOS) blue button with the label "Start Adblock Plus". Clicking this button will lead you to the main app.

  • Step 4: The main app is basically the current settings page but with little visual adjustments.

What needs to be done:

  • Style guides
  • Final wording
