AdGuard for Android 4.2: Dynamic theme and HTTP/3 filtering support
Often the changes we make to our products are not immediately visible to the naked eye — they can be quite technical. But guess what? This time we've got something you can actually see and appreciate! In this release, AdGuard has introduced a dynamic theme and dynamic icons! And that's not all — we've also added experimental HTTP/3 filtering and support for two HTTPS certificates.
Get ready for a dynamic experience with AdGuard for Android! Our app now has dynamic icons and a dynamic theme.
If you enable the dynamic theme in the settings, the AdGuard app interface and icon will change to match the color of your smartphone interface.
Please note that these features are only available on Android devices running version 12 or higher.
HTTP/3 filtering support
In this release we have added experimental support for HTTP/3 filtering. This means that AdGuard now filters not only HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2 traffic, but also HTTP/3. The HTTP/3 protocol, which is based on the QUIC network protocol, provides better privacy and security, as well as a more stable and faster Internet connection. By enabling HTTP/3 filtering, you can take advantage of the QUIC protocol and effectively block ads and trackers.
To enable HTTP/3 filtering, go to Settings → General → Advanced → Low-level settings → Filter HTTP/3 and toggle the switch to the right.
Support for two HTTPS certificates
By implementing two HTTPS certificates, we have fixed an issue with HTTPS filtering in Chrome 100 and above on rooted devices. While the certificate in the system store will be responsible for filtering in most apps, the certificate in the user store will allow AdGuard to filter HTTPS traffic in Chromium-based browsers.
Installing certificates has also become easier: we’ve added step-by-step instructions.
To install the second certificate, go to Settings → Filtering → Network → HTTPS filtering → Security сertificates and follow the instructions.
In this update, our filters have become more powerful, and we have also fixed numerous bugs to ensure stable performance of the app.
