Description of App

Browse the web like it should be – free of nags to accept cookies or privacy invasive tracking. It's tiny, fast, free, open, secure and without any access to your data.

“I’d recommend Hush to anyone who uses Safari”
— John Gruber, Daring Fireball

SECURE AND PRIVATE

Hush doesn't have any third party dependencies, behavioral tracking nor crash reporting – no data is collected and nothing leaves your device.

The blocking is done by Safari itself with instructions from Hush, so the app has no access to your browser habits nor does it want to. Don't take our word for it – we play with open cards and publish the source code for anyone to inspect.

SIMPLE YET POWERFUL

Using Hush is as easy as installing it and enabling it in Preferences -> Extensions. No settings, no maintenance – just thousands of rules doing the hard work for you in the background.

It works like magic – you will not notice Hush until you disable it.

MODERN, TINY AND FAST

The app is primarily a host of rules that integrates with Safari in a native lightweight way, making the blocking efficient, fast and easy on your disk space.

FREE AND OPEN

Hush is both free of charge and Open Source with a permissive MIT license. No in-app purchases, no nonsense.

AVAILABLE ON ALL DEVICES

Hush is available for iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

I would like to try this app, but first I'd like to knowhow easy or difficult it would be to restore my previous settings if after trying this app, I decide I don't want to use the app after alll. I have had trouble with other apps after trying them because I didn't know what changes they made except to know I didn't like them and I didn't know how to go back to the way things were before I got them.

There are no changes made to settings as such. You simply enable or disable the operation of this app in Settings > Safari > Content Blockers

You can also enable/disable content blocking for specific pages or web sites in Safari itself.

If you don't like what this app does, you can simply delete it and all will return to how it was before.

Is this an ad blocker as well? Because well I have one, I’m always looking to see if there are better alternatives, preferably that either don’t cost you too much, or are free.
