We've already had two big beta updates in May: AdGuard for iOS and AdGuard for Windows. Now it's time to announce AdGuard 2.0 for Mac — the first full-scale release of this May. Oh yes, we have more where this comes from, but that's a topic for future articles (coming very soon). For now, let's have a look at what expects you in this update.
It's very exciting to be writing about an AdGuard for iOS update. I'm sure, for many users it will be no less exciting to read about it. Even though this is only a beta update, it will give you an impression of what to expect when the release version hits the AppStore (which will happen sooner than you might think). There's a lot to discuss, so let's not waste any more time and kick things off right away.
We don't post about new betas in Blog every day, and not because there aren't enough of them. Usually, most users won't be interested in beta updates, but this time is different. We receive questions about the new AdGuard for Windows version literally every day. That's understandable — the last update was back in October 2018. More than half a year ago!
We can't say we weren't expecting that. Last year Safari started the process of deprecating the traditional extensions, and we covered it in our Blog article. But you still could install the old style extensions and enable them manually.
We talk a lot about the importance of privacy, and it is often tightly linked to data security. One of the cornerstones of data safety is two-factor authentication. Most of you are probably familiar with this concept, as it has become pretty much a security standard by now, but I'll throw in a refresher.
