In this version, we’ve added HTTP basic authentication for DNS-over-HTTPS. This is useful if you have your own DNS server and don’t want someone else to use it. There is a nuance, though: there are not many DNS servers that support this feature right now. But soon they’ll become available in AdGuard Home and AdGuard DNS, so stay tuned!
Besides, we’ve fixed minor bugs and updated DnsLibs and Scriptlets.
Ratings and Reviews
Straightforward UI thats not overly complicated and easily allows the user to custom choose what protection they would like. AdGuard has also included its own set of rules that have been built from easylist/easyprivacy & fanboy list and specifically customized them for the mobile platform and iOS specifically that can used by themselves, with easylist, or not at all. They give full control to the user, no sponsor ads or paid ads are allowed through. There is a filter that allows self promotion ads like the ones see when using googles search engine, but the user can turn it off and on. If none of AdGuards syntax rules block a specific popup, ad, or third-party widget there’s an option to manually block it and add it to the user filter option so its blocked in the future. Whitelist is also available to turn rules off on certain websites. And the rules update multiple times throughout the day regularly so the latest adblock protection is always used.

Love, love, love!!!
This extension does it all, I’m a victim of identity theft and this has been a God Send. For over ten years someone has sit around watching my ever move through my main email with yahoo. I had this email for over 15 yrs now. These people took every financial account I had and then spent money on everyone. They have accounts with each of the credit bureaus, they have subjected me to countless data breaches, in which they claimed my claim in their names.I have had no relief since August 2020 when I first found out that my identity was stolen. Sorry I’m rambling but I just cannot say enough about this AdGuard, it has given me relief it has given me options in my reliefAnd just when I thought it couldn’t get any better I got an invitation to do the testing! I’m at awe at the work you all have put in to help others, I would have given as many stars as there were if there could be more. My only complaint is I have bought the upgrade and it got stolen because these people are roothless and make aliases to every email account I make, then they take it over. This has happened with many apps and extensions not just this one! However, this one is by far my favorite then and now and probably forever. If you need something g that really works and that is user friendly, I’d urge you to try AdGuard and AdGuard VPN as well it’s a package deal really.
Eat your battery without using your device. The problem with AdGuard…
I’ve been using more than 1 year and I love the DNS only, the reason is because the problem with AdGuard their apps always have a problem. But the big problem is they don’t fix nothing, just add new things but I don’t see the difference or feel that. This days I was having trouble with my IPhone 13 about my battery and I was “why my IPhone after 2 hours lost a lot of battery without using my device?”. Example I had my IPhone in 80% after 3 hours without using my device, my battery was in 30% and I was like “what the freak?” I verify my battery usage and the intruder is AdGuard taking a lot of battery but a lot. I uninstalled the app and my battery is running well now. I always waited for long time they fix a lot of things but they have a issue a lot of times. I give up, but if you still want use AdGuard I recommend you to use their DNS only because is the only thing is working well for the moment. Oh and if you want to report a bug and issues don’t report it. Why I say this? Because I did that a lot of times and when I sent to them the logs, they responded “we don’t find any issues” is a waste of time. Don’t install their apps of AdGuard on any devices. And this is a message for people who are working there: please take more seriously to fix the issues and bugs. I prefer have their DNS only but if in the future their start to have issues I will not use AdGuard DNS too.
