Works a treat

Great Adblocker, does what it sets out to do…. One thing I’d like to see though is cloud syncing between devices for my custom list and element blocking rules.
Unfortunately, when used alongside the Adguard VPN the system wide blocking is not as good as either Nord (Cyber threat) or Surfshark (Clean web), with a lot of app ads getting through which the others block.
If it wasn’t for the app ads getting through I would happily use both the adblock and VPN apps together as I have a lifetime membership but both Nord and Surfshark win on this front.
Hopefully Adguard will implement something similar and more robust than the current offering soon to put them on a par with the other big players.
One final point, in my previous review I stated that the VPN was extremely slow when compared with other similar services. This seems to have been addressed and whilst it’s still not quite as fast as the others the speeds have improved a lot.
Please implement something similar, that works as well as Cyber Threat or Cleanweb, and I can go “all in” with Adguard.

Annoying UI has been fixed

UPDATE: Seems my gripe with the UI no longer applies. Cheers. Adjusted to 5 stars. Next on my wish list is full integration with your VPN service. My understanding is AdGuard and AdGuard VPN are two separate apps. In the past I’ve had AdGuard and other VPN services fighting for VPN status on iOS so was hoping it would all be integrated into a single clean app. Bit of a shame but please correct if wrong.

Seems like a comprehensive powerful service. The one annoyance though is there’s no easy way to turn it off! It adds a VPN configuration but there is no way in the app to quickly turn this off unless I go through lots of configurations in the app turning them all off one by one. An on/off option should really be shown as soon as the app is loaded like any other VPN app but instead it’s taken up with a nag message asking to rate the app.

Developer Response ,

Hm, this is a strange thing. When you open the app, a large on/off-toggle should be shown at first. Could you please email us at if the problem still occurs?

I have been using this application for over 3 years know and honestly cannot live without it I read a lot of books online but sadly there where to many advertisements to count that disrupted my reading thankfully I found this app and affects where felt instantly however there are some issues. I would've liked a more direct way in which a new user is directed to the filter tab and a thorough explanation of how to use the app as soon as you are at the Home Screen. I have recommended the app to many people and that was the main issue they had with the app. Thank you for the app and services you provide
