Most people consider pop-ups to be one of the internet's worst features. But despite how spammy they can be, a lot of legitimate websites use them for important reasons. For example, Amazon opens customer service chats in pop-ups, which some browsers block automatically.
Your iPhone's internet browser blocks pop-ups by default. But both Safari and Chrome let you change that and allow pop-ups.
Here's how to allow pop-ups in both Safari and Chrome on your iPhone.

2. Select Settings.
