AdGuard DNS (beta)

AdGuard DNS is an alternative solution for ad blocking, privacy protection and parental control. Easy to set up and free in use, it provides a necessary minimum of protection against online ads, trackers and phishing, no matter what platform and device you use.
Why AdGuard DNS?
Blocks ads on any platform
AdGuard DNS can be set up literally on any platform — PC, Mac, Android, iOS etc. You can even set it up on your router to block ads on all devices connected to your home Wi-Fi network.
Family protection mode
Use the Family protection mode of AdGuard DNS 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.
Keeps your anonymity
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.
Free for personal use
AdGuard DNS is completely free of charge. Feel free to set it up on any and all of your devices, from desktops to mobile phones and tablets. We'll appreciate though if you contact us before using it as a corporate solution.

FAQ
What is AdGuard DNS?
AdGuard DNS is a free Domain Name System resolution system. You can use it for ad blocking purposes instead of your current DNS provider.
How does AdGuard DNS work?
When you use AdGuard DNS, every time a website sends an ad request, our server sends back a null response. AdGuard has a database of domain names that serve for ad purposes, and this database is regularly updated.
What can AdGuard DNS do except for blocking ads?
We offer two different modes. ’Default’ mode includes blocking ads, various trackers and malware phishing websites. ’Family protection’ does the same, but also blocks websites with adult content and enforces ’safe search’ in your browser.
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. You can find a separate configuration manual for each platform here.
Why is AdGuard DNS free? What’s the catch?
We will use AdGuard DNS functionality as a part of other AdGuard software, which will be distributed on a pay-to-use basis. We might also develop a paid version of AdGuard DNS based on 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 here.
What ports does AdGuard DNS use?
Don't bother too much if you don't understand the question. It is a technical one, and doesn't concern 99% of users. AdGuard DNS uses default port 53, and an alternative port 5353. In case port 53 is blocked or unavailable, use port 5353 instead.
I have some troubles or questions that are not covered by this F.A.Q. What do I do?
