Where is the AdGuard main window?
There is no separate window in AdGuard for Mac. You need to click on AdGuard icon in the menu bar above. All settings and statistics can be found there.
Can AdGuard block ads in other apps?
Yes, in all apps and browsers. Many apps are already added to “Filtered applications”. If you have an app where ads are not blocked go to Preferences (gear icon) -> Network.
Then click on “Applications…” and choose the app you need to filter.
How can I renew/upgrade/reset my license via the app?
Go to “Preferences” (gear icon) -> “License…” You will see the new window where you can manage your license key.
Can I choose for myself which websites or elements to block?
Yes, we do have several instruments for that. In the user filter, one can add rules to adjust filtering.
And there is a whitelist to stop ad blocking on the specific websites.
The app doesn’t start automatically
Click on “System Preferences” in the tool bar below.
Go to “Users Groups” —> “Login items”. You need to check if AdGuard is in the list and enabled. If not, click on the “Plus” sign to add AdGuard and then tick it.
