Official AdGuard for Mac release

Great news for Mac users. We are finally ready to announce the official release of new Adguard. Yay!

World’s first adblock program for Mac

Adguard for Mac is truly a unique web filter that was created from scratch, specifically for OS X. With the help of our new product, we successfully solved all the issues with problematic ad blocking on Mac.
For example, back in the days it was only possible to block ads on Mac with browser extensions. They do not take into account specifics of the OS X and affect the stability of browser’s performance (especially Safari). One more problem is that it’s almost impossible to block video ads due to browser extension limitations. In Adguard we have taken all this into account, so that there won’t be any problems with the filtering – all banners, flash animation, text and video ads will be completely removed.


As we already mentioned, before Adguard there has been no such feature-rich web filter for Mac. Our program is able to:

  • Block ALL ads in ALL browsers. And even in applications on your Mac.
  • Protect you from online threats.
  • Ensure protection from counters and tracking systems.

Program modules

Main modules of Adguard for Mac are Ad Blocker, Privacy Protection and Browsing Security. Now, let’s take a closer look at each of them.

Ad Blocker: Ad filters clear the Internet (and applications on Mac) from annoying advertising, and banners are blocked even before they are loaded to a page. As a result, sites are loading much faster.
Privacy Protection: Any counters and tracking tools will be blocked. Adguard won’t allow anyone monitor your actions online and will protect your personal data.
Browsing Security: Checks every page for any malicious or phishing content using our databases, and blocks requests from potentially dangerous ones. Adguard won’t let you become a victim of fraud.

The program also includes additional features such as Adguard Assistant and Filtering Log. Adguard Assistant helps you manage the program’s work directly from your browser and Filtering Log demonstrates all the processes taking place in the program and helps to configure filtering as you want it.

Tech Specs

Operating system: OS X 10.7 64-bit and later
Browser: any

No special license needed to activate Adguard for Mac. Standard, as well as Premium suit well.
