Adguard DNS now supports DNSCrypt

Good news from Adguard DNS!

Instead of a regular client-server interaction protocol, Adguard DNS now allows you to use a specific encrypted protocol - DNSCrypt. Now all requests between your computer and Adguard DNS servers can be encrypted with secure elliptic curve cryptography to protect them from possible interception and subsequent eavesdropping and alteration by any intruder, even if it is your ISP. It needs a little configuration though. »

Filtering rules documentation

A short introduction: Adguard's filtering process is based on special "filtering" rules. With these rules you can tell the program where, how and what exactly do you want to block.

On our website there is an article with description of filtering rules syntax. It's been a long time since it was written and Adguard now has some cool new features, so we have finally decided to update this documentation. »

Annoyances filter

We have decided to create a new separate filter for irritating elements that disturb users or interfere with web surfing. As you may know, we already have a Social media filter that removes numerous social media widgets and different buttons – “Like”, “Share”, “Tweet” etc. (we are sure you have noticed how many of them are on certain websites). Our new filter will go further in making your surfing even more comfortable. »
