How it works?
Blocks ads everywhere
Block throughout the whole system. This includes video ads and ads in your favorite apps, browsers, games, and on any website you can imagine. Dozens of ad filters are available to you and are updated on a regular basis, guaranteeing the best filtering quality.
Cares about your privacy
We value the privacy of your personal data above anything else. With AdGuard, you will be safe from online trackers and analytics systems that lurk on the web trying to steal your sensitive information. Surely, this happens without logging the users' actions. AdGuard does not store DNS query logs.
Family protection mode
Use the Family protection mode to block access to all websites with adult content and enforce safe search in the browser, in addition to the regular perks of ad blocking and browsing security.
No Apps needed
AdGuard DNS does not require installation of any applications. You can use it on any Windows, macOS, Android, or iOS operated device.

FAQ
What is DNS?
DNS stands for Domain Name System. Think of it as of "address book" of the Internet: your browsers and apps use it to translate domain names that make no sense to them into IP addresses that they can understand.
What is AdGuard DNS?
AdGuard DNS is a free, privacy-oriented DNS resolution system that blocks tracking, ads and phishing. You can use it instead of your current DNS provider.
How does AdGuard DNS work?
When you use AdGuard DNS, every time a browser or an app sends a "bad" request, our server does not reply with an IP address, but sends back a null response instead. AdGuard has a database of domain names that serve for ad, tracking and fraud purposes, and this database is regularly updated.
What can AdGuard DNS do?
We offer two different modes. "Default" mode is for blocking ads, trackers, malware and phishing websites. "Family protection" does the same, but also blocks websites with adult content and enforces "Safe search" option in browsers that provide it.
What makes AdGuard privacy-oriented?
AdGuard DNS takes several measures to ensure your privacy safety. We support DNSCrypt, DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) and DNS-over-TLS (DoT) protocols.
What is DNSCrypt?
Instead of a regular client-server interaction protocol, AdGuard DNS allows you to use a specific encrypted protocol — DNSCrypt. Thanks to it, all DNS requests are being encrypted, which protects you from possible request interception and subsequent eavesdropping and/or alteration.
What are DoH and DoT?
They are modern secure DNS protocols that gain more and more popularity and will become the industry standards for the foreseeable future. Both are more reliable than DNSCrypt and both are supported by AdGuard DNS.
What is DNSSEC?
AdGuard DNS supports DNSSEC technology which allows you to verify the authenticity of the stored DNS records with a digital signature. It provides protection against current and potential attacks on DNS queries and responses aiming to forge them or change their content, and at the same time it fends off other online threats.
Why is AdGuard DNS free? What’s the catch?
We use AdGuard DNS functionality as a part of other AdGuard software, most of which are distributed on a pay-to-use basis. We might also develop a paid version of AdGuard DNS based on the current one, more advanced and with more features.
What devices can I use AdGuard DNS with?
There are no restrictions for which devices you can use it with. You can find a separate configuration manual for each platform on this page.
What ports does AdGuard DNS use?
AdGuard DNS uses default port 53. In case port 53 is blocked or unavailable, use port 5353 instead.
I have some troubles or questions that are not covered by this FAQ. What do I do?
I have some troubles or questions that are not covered by this FAQ. What do I do? You will find everything related to AdGuard DNS on GitHub, or you can just ask us by contacting our support: support@adguard.com. We will answer you as soon as possible.
