Create an Exit Popup

Lisa Fockens Updated by Lisa Fockens

Exit popups are a great way to reach visitors when they are about to leave your website. You can easily create exit popups with Wisepops.

How do exit popups work?

To detect a visitor exit, we track your users' mouse movement. When your visitors are about to close the page they're on, they have to move their mouse upwards to reach for the close option. We detect and interpret this mouse movement as an exit and will trigger your popup.

If you want to preview your exit popup on your site, just repeat the mouse trajectory as if you were about to close your tab or browser.

On mobiles, it's a different story. If you want to learn more about mobile exit intent, check out this article.
