I will use Mate Translate as an example for this guide.
Mate for iOS has an in-built website translator Safari extension that makes translating web pages on your iPhone or iPad extraordinarily easy.
To use Mate's features, you need to enable the extension first. Note it only works in iOS Safari, other iOS browsers don't support extensions yet.
- To enable the extension, tap on the share icon in Safari's toolbar and select "Extensions," then turn Mate on.
- The next step is to allow Mate access to the web pages.
An alert will appear, asking you if you want to allow Mate access to this website. Don't be scared, it's the same usual permission you automatically give to all the extensions on your desktop browser. Apple, however, decided it will be good to scare users away with these dialogs.
Select "Always Allow..."
Another alert will appear after that, asking if you only want to enable Mate on the current website or on all websites.
Select "Always Allow on Every Website."
If the extension doesn't have the permission for all pages, it can't insert its scripts there, hence it can't provide you with any extra features on the website.
You can now use your extension to its fullest.
