What is an Exit Popup and How Does It Work?
The Exit Popup is typically used to encourage your visitors to linger on your website page and continue learning more.
The popup appears when your visitor's mouse crosses the line separating the page from the address bar at the top of their browser:
This triggers the Exit Popup when your visitor attempts to leave the page.
Your Exit Popup can be customized to appear after a specific amount of time the visitor has been on the page or shows intent to leave by crossing the line at the top of your page, whichever occurs first.
If your page is viewed on Mobile Devices, the Exit Pop Up will only appear if you have the Exit Pop Up Time Reveal Settings set up (this feature is only available when creating custom Pages on the Website tab and not your standard Website Pages).

Exit Popup Features:
