AdGuard for Android v2.11

As we continue our struggle to finally finish version 3.0 of AdGuard for Android, the app receives more and more intermediate updates as a byproduct :) Today we present v2.11, a big update, at least judging by the number of entries in the changelog. Two 'whales' that I'll stop by today are integration with web reporting tool and implementation of AG Assistant. »

AdGuard launches Nightly builds

We are very proud of our users, and especially of our beta testers. They are the most dedicated testers we know, but even among them there are those who stand out, those who always long for more beta versions to put their hands on :) Specifically for them we decided to introduce so-called "Nightly" builds for Windows and Android versions of AdGuard. In this article I will explain what are they and how to get them. »

Twice the releases, twice the fun

Hello, guys and gals!

Today's article is a very short one: I just want to let all of you know about two minor updates: for AdGuard for Android and AdGuard for Windows, respectively. They are not big enough of updates to be worthy of a full-scale post, but couldn't be left unnoticed either. Below is a short extract of the most important changes and fixes that went into the new versions. »

AdGuard for Android v2.10

Hi everyone!

  • x3 times increase of the filtering speed
  • outgoing proxy and TOR support
  • DNS filtering
  • DNS encryption

and everything cool that goes alongside it. More details ahead!

Edit — v2.10.164 update »

Adguard for Android v2.9.135

A new Adguard for Android version has been released today. It is not excessively rich with new features and other changes - more will come in v2.10 and, eventually, in Adguard v3.0. However, there is still one big highlight - we have vastly reworked and improved the User filter. Read below to find out the details. »

Adguard for Android 2.9

This is arguably the biggest we’ve changed our app since v2.5 or even since the introduction of the new design back in Adguard v2.0. Some of these changes were meant to be introduced only in the 3.0 version, but we couldn’t wait any longer :) Significant changes to UI, the long hoped-for filtering log feature, other new options — all this and much more awaits you in this update. »

Adguard vs AdAway (and other hosts-based ad blockers - DNS66, Netguard etc.)

Why do we feel there's a need to write an article like this? On forums and in users' messages we often see a widespread belief that Adguard for Android is just a tool to block ads on devices that don't have ROOT access. And this is a serious mistake. Adguard is the most advanced way to get rid of ads and tracking on Android, no matter if you have your device rooted or not. »

Ad blocking and battery saving

One of the most important drawbacks of modern mobile devices is short battery life. So it's not amusing that many smartphone users pay attention specifically to that. If you are using Adguard on your smartphone and have once looked into the statistics of battery usage, you probably noticed that Adguard is often in the list of programs that consume most of the battery juice. But is it really so? Let's look at the details. »
