Compatibility with AdGuard VPN


This article is about AdGuard for iOS, a multifunctional ad blocker that protects your device at the system level. To see how it works, download the AdGuard app

In most cases, an ad blocker app and a VPN app cannot work together, due to certain system limitations.

Nevertheless, we've managed to find a solution to befriend AdGuard VPN and AdGuard Ad Blocker.

On the Protection section, you can easily switch between two apps.

How to enable compatibility mode

If you already have AdGuard Ad Blocker when installing AdGuard VPN, integrated (compatibility) mode will turn on automatically, allowing you to use our apps at the same time.

If you have installed AdGuard VPN first and only then decided to try AdGuard Ad Blocker, follow these steps to use the two apps together:

  1. Open AdGuard VPN for iOS app and select ⚙ Settings in the lower right corner of the screen.
  2. Go to App settings and select Operating mode.
  3. Switch the mode from VPN to Integrated.

In Integrated mode, AdGuard VPN's Exclusions and DNS server features are not available.
