How we built it

Stricter user gestures for touch

Initially don't allow opening popups (and other sensitive operations) on touch events which don't correspond to a tap from inside of cross-origin iframes (Chrome 52). Exploring further restrictions (that don't rely on special-casing cross-origin iframes).
