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.
AdGuard for Mac OS
AdGuard for Mac OS
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.
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!
