We know you all are eager to see new Adguard 1.2, and believe us, we also can’t wait for that moment. But there is still some work to be done, and meanwhile we would like to present you 1.1.835 update.
Added support of Habit browser and Yandex browser beta.
Google Messenger app added to exclusions list
Fixed a bug with local network exclusion. Now local network is properly excluded on all devices. This should fix some compatibility issues: working with local FTP servers, Sonos, Amazon Fire TV, etc.
Fixed filtering issue with websites which use Content-Security-Policy.
Fixed an issue with proxy+automatic filtering mode on devices with kernel version 3.10.
Fixed Adguard filtering in case of using proxy server with port 80.
Fixed UI issue when bandwidth saved value is more than 1GB.
Fixed major bug in the filtering engine.
Fixed Google Play Music compatibility issue.
Fixed an issue with waiting for ROOT access on device boot.
As you can see, this update is mostly bug-fix oriented. We believe it was the right thing to do – fixing all the technical issues before introducing new features in 1.2 version. So that the future release will be smooth and without unexpected surprises:
Meanwhile let us remind you about all that new stuff waiting in Adguard for Android 1.2:
As you know, Adguard was almost impossible to use along with majority of existing firewalls. We had no other choice but to develop our own built-in firewall, so you could block stuff while blocking more stuff!
Long-awaited user filter importing feature. For those of you who like to customize things, life will be much easier.
Who else wants a widget to enable/disable protection in one tap? We do! So it will be implemented in 1.2 update.
And that’s just the major changes, there will be more.
When discussing Adguard ad filters, there is often one topic that causes disputes – whether shall Adguard block this or that ad. By framing the rules we stick to special criteria. Now it’s time to publish them. Our criteria are much similar to EasyList Policy, which we find correct and appropriate. Nevertheless, we have put changes to some points.
Today we are releasing another unscheduled, but priority update for Adguard 5.10. This update contains many useful and important changes and fixes. We recommend that all our Adguard for Windows users upgrade to this version.
Rest assured, we do not share or sell any of your personal data.

You can install AdGuard for Android only manually. Google prohibits distribution of network-level ad blockers via Google Play, i.e. apps that block commercials in other apps. You will find more information about Google restrictive policy in our blog.
To use the app on your mobile device, you will need to do the following.
First of all, allow installing apps from unknown sources in your device’s OS settings. For this you will need to:
For Android 8 and 9: tap on the downloaded AdGuard APK file and then on Install. If installation from your browser is not allowed, you will see a screen informing you about it. From this screen tap on Settings → Allow from this source → Back → Install.
For Android 7: give the browser access to the repository. Then agree to download APK format. Open the downloaded file and install AdGuard.
For Android 6: open Settings, then select Additional settings in System & Device. Switch on Unknown sources and press OK in the system warning window.
(Please note that the path towards these settings may differ depending on a device).
For Android 5: open Settings, then select Security in the Personal section. Switch on Unknown sources and press OK in the system warning window.
You can now install the app on your device. You will see the request to save the downloaded file. Press OK.
When the download is complete, the system will ask you if you want to install the AdGuard app. Press Install.
Wait for the installation to complete and press Done.
AdGuard is now installed on your device. You can launch the app by pressing its icon in the list of installed apps.
