You never have to see comments again if you don't want to.
Want a peek at the chaos? You're just a button away.
No strings attached. Just download, install, and browse.
Comments are awful. Shut Up hides them by default, sparing your sanity and preventing you from getting sucked into a world of hurt.
Shut Up is an app you can install on an iPhone or iPad, and a browser extension you can install in Chrome, Firefox or Safari. At its core is a stylesheet by Steven Frank called shutup.css. The extension injects the stylesheet's rules into almost all of the pages you visit.
When you want to see comments, it couldn't be easier:
Rarely, you might find that Shut Up inadvertently blocks legitimate page content, or doesn't block comments properly. Please contact me if you think something's not working right. If you're good at web development, you can submit a pull request for shutup.css on GitHub.
Shut Up won't track nor spy on your browsing activity. The extension only periodically contacts this server for the newest copy of shutup.css, at which point some temporary diagnostic logs are recorded. On Firefox, this update check is omitted. Learn more about my privacy policies.
On iPhone or iPad, Shut Up requires iOS 10 or newer. You also need a 64-bit processor. Any of the following devices will work:
One more thing: You have to activate Shut Up in Settings before it may start blocking comments. To do that:
If you can't turn on Shut Up from here, you may need to first disable your device's web browsing restrictions. Once you've done that and turned on Shut Up, you can turn the restrictions back on.
