Official release of AdGuard for Android

Dear friends!

You’ve been waiting for it, and now we are finally ready to introduce the official release version of Adguard for Android. Many thanks to all who participated in open beta testing, we would never make it without you!

This post will be an overview for our new Adguard. Enjoy!

New hero: Adguard for Android

Adguard for Android provides internet filtering in Android-powered devices. First of all, it is an ad blocking application that can handle all types of online advertising. However, Adguard is not limited to banner removing; it is a universal app that contains all the necessary functions for the most comfortable use of the Internet. For example, blocking or warning about the phishing and other online threats, protection of your personal data on the Internet.

Features

The app includes two main modules: AdBlocker and Browsing Security.

AdBlocker removes all the advertising elements from web pages. Blocks video ads, popups, removes banners and other advertising. At the same time filtering takes place even before the load of the website into browser and this means:
a) no advertisements;
b) less traffic consumed/less money spent;
c) acceleration of the websites loading.

Browsing Security module protects devices from possible threats, checking all loaded web pages and apk files. If Adguard determines that opening the site or downloading the application can be dangerous, the downloading will be immediately blocked. The app drastically reduces the probability of any malicious programs getting installed to your device. Adguard uses blacklists which contain millions of hazardous websites.

Special features

Two filtering modes. Users can choose a filtering mode from local VPN or Local HTTP proxy. The first one does not require ROOT access and VPN-server is located on user’s same device, so that there is no need to pass the traffic for filtering through a remote server. Second is recommended if you are using a device with ROOT or you want to use Adguard along with any third-party VPN.

Privacy protection. Protecting your personal data by preventing the tracking of your internet-surfing history. With Adguard, nobody will be able to track your searches and websites you visited and use the data for their personal gain.

Ad blocking in apps. Adguard is able to block ads in games and other applications.

Social widgets filter. Social widgets (Like, Share-buttons and such) will be removed if a corresponding filter is enabled. Don’t spend additional traffic on their load and forbid tracking with Adguard.

One button. Adguard is as functional as it is easy-to-use: the interface is user-friendly, there are as many settings as necessary for web filtering configuration, nothing extra. And to enable protection only one button is needed.

Multilanguage ad filters. Ad filters for websites in different languages will block ads in English, Russian, German, Dutch, Japanese, Spanish and Portuguese.

System Requirements and limitations

  • OS: Android 4.0.3 and higher
  • Is not compatible with Opera Mini and Puffin Browser.
  • VPN module is not installed on some firmwares. In this case VPN filtering mode is impossible.

License

It should be noted that by “default” only ad blocking feature is available for Adguard users. This is the basic program scope, and it is absolutely free.

As for the additional premium features, such as blocking ads in apps and games, and protection from malicious and scam sites (Browsing Security module) – access to them will be opened after activating app with a premium license key, which can be purchased on the official Adguard website.
