What is Exit Intent?
Exit intent it’s a trigger method that will show the popup when WP Popups detects that the user is about to leave the page. We do that by detecting when the mouse is leaving your page from the top part of the viewport, meaning the user is about to change or close a tab, close the browser, etc. Because “exit intent” it’s based on mouse gestures is not possible to use it on mobile devices.
While there are more aggressive techniques to trigger popups on windows closure on mobile and desktop, we are against them and if search engines detect them on your site you will be penalized.
How to create an Exit Intent popup?
Once you create the popup you need to go to Settings -> Triggers and choose the “Exit intent” method. That’s all, once the user tries to leave the page it will show the popup.
