Our solutions are not just an ad blocker; they protect from online threats, prevent tracking, and filter obscene materials. This comprehensive approach provides high-quality filtering, making AdGuard an essential tool for every internet user. Our mission is to make our users' web surfing most comfortable and safe.
The Chronicle of AdGuard
The birth of AdGuard
AdGuard was founded. There were 3 people in the team and the office was in the one of the co-founder’s apartment. It was the year of searching and experiments.
AdGuard was reworked from scratch. In October we released renewed version and opened our Forum. Thanks to that we got a huge user feedback that helped us a lot in future program development. Later that year AdGuard Assistant was created.
Second total re-design in AdGuard history in version 5.0. The team is growing, AdGuard got the first proper office.
We understood that to compete with other ad blockers we need to be present in their field as well, so we developed free ad blocking browser extensions for Chrome and Opera.
Extensions for Safari, Firefox and Yandex.Browser were next. In November we released second major product in AdGuard software range - our Android app. In just a week we were removed from Google Play, because.. well, we block Google’s ads. And by the end of the year AdGuard products reached 5 million users around the world.
Major release in April added AdGuard for Mac to our software products. In October that year other Apple users got their app - AdGuard for iOS was added to App Store. We also created Stealth mode extension (yes, it’s ours) that later was turned into Stealth mode module in AdGuard for Windows. And another important step was to reflect all our development processes on GitHub. We became more transparent than ever and users really helped us by reporting issues and suggesting new features.
Third ultimate makeover of Windows program. We released AdGuard 6. which concept design (more or less) you can see now in the current versions. AdGuard won at Webit Festival Europe as the best startup. We released the first version of AdGuard DNS (still working on this), and then AdGuard Content Blocker (limited functionality blocker for Android, works in Samsung and Yandex mobile browsers). In September we released the premium version of iOS app - AdGuard Pro.
We developed AdGuard for Edge extension and added it to the Microsoft Store. Our website is fully redesigned. It finally represents all our products properly, is adaptive for mobile devices and is simply good-looking and user-friendly :) There are around 40 people in the team.
The most important change in 2018 was CoreLibs, the new cross-platform engine for all AdGuard products. The fight against ad blocking is carried out on all “fronts”, but thanks to CoreLibs, AdGuard is now again one step ahead.
In 2018, we started releasing Nightly builds — the “raw” versions of AdGuard. Thus, our tireless testers take on the first wave of nasty bugs, so that ordinary users get the most stable version of the program.
It's impossible to fit all that happened to AdGuard in 2019 in few sentences. We released numerous updates for all of our products, launched a new one — AdGuard for Safari — and even reanimated AdGuard Pro for iOS.
Privacy continued to be our top priority. We introduced 2FA for our website and exposed several fake ad blocker extensions that were stealing users' personal data.
We improve and develop our applications, while striving to make them more beautiful and easier to use. We are preparing new research, we are dissecting the next threats to security, privacy and effective web surfing. And we thank every user of AdGuard: thank you for being with us, motivating us and helping us!
