AdGuard v2.13 for Mac: improved HTML filtering rules, DoH authentication, and more

Recently we released the update of AdGuard for iOS. We continue the streak of releases with AdGuard v2.13 for Mac. This version includes several under-the-hood improvements and bug fixes to enhance your browsing experience. Additionally, AdGuard has implemented useful features that enhance the efficiency of ad blocking. Let’s take a closer look at the main improvements.

More transparency to HTTPS filtering

To enhance the transparency in HTTPS filtering, AdGuard now offers an option to inspect the original certificate via Filtering log. There you can review details of any web request, examine the encryption used by AdGuard, and inspect the original certificate.

This feature comes from a major concern with HTTPS filtering. AdGuard validates the certificate (and does it well!), but there may be situations in which you'd like to inspect the original certificate yourself. You can read more about this issue in our Knowledge base.

Support for selectors in HTML filtering rules

The big change in this version is the improved HTML filtering. AdGuard has added support for selectors in HTML filtering rules, which helps block ads more effectively.

New DnsLibs and Basic HTTP authentication

With this DnsLibs update, AdGuard for Mac users can access a new feature: Basic HTTP authentication. This is especially useful when you have a custom DNS server and want to restrict access to it.

Previously, you could restrict access by IP address (for example, only allow your home IP to connect to the DNS server), but what if you have a mobile device that frequently changes networks?

Luckily, the DNS-over-HTTPS protocol allows us to benefit from the opportunities of the HTTP protocol, one of which is the authentication option. Basic HTTP authentication can be used to configure a custom DNS server, allowing you to control the connections to it.

Soon Basic HTTP authentication will be available in AdGuard Home and AdGuard DNS, stay tuned!


We hope this summary helps you to understand the new features of AdGuard v2.13 for Mac. If you have any questions or feedback about the update, please let us know! You can leave a comment below or reach out to us on social media.

You can check out the full v2.13 changelog on Github. You can also leave your feedback on Github issues.
