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.

Hello dear DirtRatBag, thank you for choosing AdGuard and for the detailed review. It is very helpful and will let other users have a better understanding why AdGuard can work well for them. Considering the outstanding ad blocking quality and the wide range of available filters, would you please give us a 5-star rating? If you have any questions, please shoot me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, I will reply very shortly. Best regards, Dmitrii S
It works great for blocking those annoying ads. But it fails miserably at being able to whitelist more than one site. The first one I whitelisted, I have no problems with. But the second one? Can’t come close to saying the same. Nine times out of ten, when I visit that site, I get the message that its being blocked by an ad blocker. That defeats the entire purpose of having the whitelist function. Get it together.
Edit: Well, now it doesn’t even function at all! I had to turn the blocker off to use a site (the same one I alluded to earlier,) but after turning it back on, it blocks NOTHING! Even after making certain it was on, and restarting the phone 7 times already, I STILL get ****ing ads! EPIC FAIL!
Edit 2: It’s official. This is easily the worst “ad blocker” I’ve ever had. Despite being active, it does NOT block ads. I had to deactivate for a few minutes to use a site that was *supposedly* whitelisted. Then I reactivated it, and *nothing.* I closed all tabs, and restarted Safari. I wiped my history, and cookies. I even restarted the phone 3 times. Nothing. It is a colossal failure. I do not recommend it at all.

(The blocker only works in Safari browser)
not like use to be
this use to work great in beginning but, it seems since the pay for extra features showed up, regular app works less and less as it use to do perfectly! currently, before and after current update, there are ADS, mostly adchoice ads, showing up again.. some pop ups on sites also came back a bit back. my settings weren’t changed so that is not the issue.. and reporting AD issues is a joke, you need to be a total pro at using this software/this app to answer all the technical questions they ask you on like 8 pages/sections just to report the issue, i gave up after section 4!! thinking they forgot most of us are just regular adblock users and not puter/software nerds!!
btw hard to block these now showing up ads like on wedmd when you click on adguard in your browser and get a popup that says “error: this website’s security policy does not allow launching adguard assistant”” ..
