How to Block JavaScript on Your iPhone or Android (and When You Should)

Much of the modern web would be vastly different if not for JavaScript, the programming language that’s allowed for interactive elements to be added to your favorite websites. Features like chat boxes, audio and video players, and infinite scrolling are just a few examples of what JavaScript has added to our lives.

When should you disable JavaScript?

Not everyone wants to run websites with JavaScript enabled. The dark side of these features is additional tracking, auto-playing videos, many annoyances that change scrolling behavior, and more. By disabling JavaScript, you can disable infinite scrolling on most websites, which is a big deal if you’re trying to cut screen time. Other benefits of disabling JavaScript include reduced tracking, blocking ads, and bypassing paywalls so you can read articles online for free.
