First of all, we found a more perfect way for filtration with a new network driver. It accelerates filtration and allows Adguard to filter secure connections. Now Adguard is capable of blocking advertisements on social networking sites, in e-mail web interfaces, on chats & etc.
We are happy to announce that today Adguard is getting a shiny new Website. Our goal with this new site is to provide our visitors with an easier way to learn about Internet filter Adguard and simplify the purchase order process.
A filter is a set of filtration rules applied to specific content (banners, popups, etc). Adguard is supplied with a standard filter created by our company. It’s being constantly updated by our experts and we hope that it meets the needs of most of our users.
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 or newer: 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.
