This year is soon to end, we all hope that 2016 will bring us all joy, happiness and success. Everyone who joined us just recently – welcome to Adguard family, those who stayed with us for a while – thank you, guys. We really appreciate your support and will do our best to continue improving our software.

October brought some big news – the world has finally seen our app for iPhones and iPads. It is now available on App Store and as we see from reviews and downloads, our users like it !:)


Adguard 6 release candidate

That was some breaking news for sure. Users expected the version 6 more than Christmas. Kidding, but really we received tons of messages asking for the date of release. We now introduce Adguard 6 release candidate. And it’s almost official release time. We will publish it officially in the beginning of 2016.

That’s what it was like in 2015. We believe the next year will be even more productive. At least we are eager to do everything for it. By the way early this year we want to publish one cool and nice roadmap where all of you will be able to vote for the features you want to add in Adguard.

Wish you all Happy New year and happy holidays one more time. May the Force be with you !:)

Sincerely,
Adguard team
