How to block ads on Youtube for Android

One of the most popular questions users ask us - is it possible to block ads in YouTube app on Android? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to it. In this article we will try to tell everything we know by this moment.

Official statement on Web of Trust

A long time ago we added a Web of Trust extension (to monitor websites reputation) to Adguard for Windows and Adguard for Mac. Today we found out that Web of Trust is suspected of selling the browsing history of millions of users to third-parties.

We decided to make an official statement regarding this to assure everyone that extension in Adguard has nothing to do with it.

A peek in the future: Adguard for Android v3.0

With Adguard for Android v3.0 just around the corner, we have some early spoilers for you. Today I am going to talk big about new design, but will also touch upon some new features, as well as new approach to the old ones.

Adguard translations are now public

We here in Adguard have always relied on volunteering users in translating our products to other languages, and we hope so far it proved rather effective. Now we make yet another step in this direction by making all translations public.

Filtering rules documentation

A short introduction: Adguard's filtering process is based on special "filtering" rules. With these rules you can tell the program where, how and what exactly do you want to block.

On our website there is an article with description of filtering rules syntax. It's been a long time since it was written and Adguard now has some cool new features, so we have finally decided to update this documentation.

New Adguard blog

Hello!

If you are a frequent Adguard blog visiter, you have already noticed a new design. That's right, we moved our blog to a different engine. It is now more clean, strict, but at the same time more cozy and intuitive (or at least we hope so). Let's have a really quick tour and talk about what will come next.

Annoyances filter

We have decided to create a new separate filter for irritating elements that disturb users or interfere with web surfing. As you may know, we already have a Social media filter that removes numerous social media widgets and different buttons – “Like”, “Share”, “Tweet” etc. (we are sure you have noticed how many of them are on certain websites). Our new filter will go further in making your surfing even more comfortable.

Adguard's view on the Open Source

In this post we will try to state our, so to say, policy on open-source.

We believe that if an app is free (and is in charge of user’s privacy), such project needs to be transparent = this app shall be open-source.
