Simple Exit Intent Popup With Plain JavaScript – ExitPopup.js


Exit intent popup is a technique that helps you keep your users engaged by asking them to stay on your website. When a user tries to leave the page, they are prompted to take an action before they can leave. This action could be anything from subscribing to your newsletter, downloading some content, or even watching a video.

This is a simple JavaScript library that detects when a visitor is about to leave your website. It does this by monitoring their mouse movement and checking if it goes outside of the browser window. If the visitor’s mouse moves out of your window, it will display an alert popup box asking for confirmation before leaving or closing the current page.

  // background ID
  opt.background_element_id = 'digitalruby_exitpopup_div_background'; 
  // true = detect exit intent only if the mouse is moved on the top address bar
  opt.top_only = false;
  // whether to close the popup on click outside
  opt.click_outside_to_close = true; 
  // time to wait before trigger the exit intent detecting

  // ignore specific pages
  opt.path_regex = '';
  // execute a callback before the popup shows
