A Crónica do AdGuard
The birth of AdGuard
Moscow, 2009. The global financial crisis that started in 2008 is rampant and makes life difficult for startups. Future founders of AdGuard are busy developing NetChart — a free web analytics service. It was working on NetChart that allowed us to understand the potential of user data — what kinds of personal information can be received, what can be done with it, and how to abuse it. It also allowed us to understand that the users themselves are not aware of its potential and dangers. This is how we came to create AdGuard.
A few months after the first official release, we released an update to the program. Its quality was extremely poor, we were criticized, but thanks to this, we made Forum — a beta testing program with the participation of active users.
It still works and helps us a lot: the scale of our gratitude to users is comparable only to the amount of their contribution to the quality of AdGuard applications. By the way, if you want to join the team of beta testers, fill out this form.
This year, we took our first step towards taking the world over: we translated the app's interface into English. And in October 2011, we released such a global update that it could be considered a completely new application. The interface has complete redesigned, there was a power save mode and a browser plugin named AdGuard Assistant. We have added several experimental security techniques, a proxy server, and many other features.
In August 2013, we realized we needed to communicate with our users, tell them news about AdGuard, and discuss ideas for development. This is how AdGuard blog appeared.
In September 2013, we learned how to block ads in encrypted traffic — now blocking started to work in services with user authorization, such as social networks.
In November 2013, users who lacked the free version of AdGuard received an extension for Chrome. It also became our first open source product.
We finally ceased custom web development and focused on AdGuard. Another important decision was to enter the global market and stop being limited to the CIS countries. To do this, English had to become the main language of all interfaces at the development stage. All our localizations are also open-source, a community of translators is working on them, and we treat this community with a lot of love and appreciation. You can become a part of it.
In November 2014, the long-awaited app for Android was released. Even two apps: paid and free ones. But, alas, a few days after the launch, Google removed these apps from the Play Store.
In January, we wrote AdGuard Filter Policy. At the same time, we started distributing free licenses to schools. We believe that ad blocking for children and teens should be available for free, because ads harm them more than adults, and abuse of their private data is potentially more dangerous.
In March 2015, AdGuard for Mac OS was released — the first system blocker for the Mac ecosystem that can block ads in different apps on the device.
Development has gained impressive momentum: several global updates of all applications and 25 releases of varying scale.
We completely redesigned the website , translated it into more than a dozen languages, and fully adapted it for mobile devices.
Since 2017, we have been developing research and analytics sectors. We want to understand where the advertising industry, marketing, technology, and the Internet are heading to protect users from new threats.
A mudança mais importante em 2018 foi CoreLibs, o novo mecanismo cross-platforma para todos os produtos do AdGuard. A luta contra o bloqueio de anúncios é realizada em todas as "frentes", mas graças ao CoreLibs, o AdGuard está novamente um passo à frente.
Em 2018, começamos a lançar Nightly builds — versões “brutas” do AdGuard. Assim, os nossos incansáveis testadores enfrentam a primeira onda de erros desagradáveis, de modo que os utilizadores comuns obtêm a versão mais estável do programa.
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.
Melhoramos e desenvolvemos as nossas aplicações, para torná-las mais bonitas e fáceis de usar. Estamos a preparar novas pesquisas, estamos a dissecar as próximas ameaças à segurança, privacidade e a navegação eficaz na internet. Agradecemos a todos os utilizadores do AdGuard: obrigado por estarem connosco, motivando-nos e ajudando-nos!
