iOS 10.2.1 (14D27)
ABP v 1.1.0
Last Filter list update January 28, 2017 at 11:29am PST

Can be replicated on all iOS devices I own

How to reproduce

  1. add to whitelist
  2. add to whitelist
  3. visit both sites in iOS safari - ads will show on as expected, but ads remain blocked on while whitelisted.


Observed behaviour

Ads not showing on whitelisted website when sub-domain present in URL. Both sites use DFP ad server and run an identical ad setup from the same DFP account. Both sites run the same CMS system. They are essentially identical software and ad server setups on both sites. So the issue is not related to the specific ads. The only notable difference between the working site and the not working site is the site where whitelist works is accessed via a TLD ( and the site where whitelist isn't working is a sub domain (

Expected behaviour

Ads should show on when added to whitelist
