AdGuard 的編年史

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.

1月份我們撰寫了 AdGuard過濾政策,同時我們開始為學校提供免費授權。我們相信對孩子和青少年應該提供免費廣告攔截,因為他們與成年人相比,容易受到來自廣告的更多侵害,並且濫用其個人數據將會對他們造成更大的威脅
2015年3月,我們發布了適用於 Mac OS 的 AdGuard —— 這是第一個適用於 Mac 的生態系統以及可在裝置裡不同應用程式中封鎖廣告的系統阻止程式。

In April, we won the Webit Awards startup competition at the Webit.Festival Europe.
In June, we made Annoyances Filter.
In July, we were on standby and ready for the invasion of the Internet of Things: AdGuard DNS started working.
In September 2016, AdGuard Pro for iOS was released.

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.
在 2018 年最重要的改變是 CoreLibs,新的用於所有 AdGuard 產品的跨平台的引擎。針對廣告攔截是在最前線進行的,正是有了 CoreLibs,AdGuard 現在才再次前進了一大步。
在 2018 年,我們開始 發布 Nightly 構建 —— AdGuard 的原始版本。我們不倦的測試者發現了第一波恼人的錯誤后,我們的普通使用者才獲取到了最穩定的版本。
在同年年末,我們發布了兩款強大的產品 —— AdGuard HomeAdGuard DNS。這是使用者完全掌控其家庭或辦公室網路上全部裝置所邁出的第一步。
我們做不到把2019年內 AdGuard 發生的事用寥寥幾句概括完。不過,長話短說,我們發布了針對所有產品的大量更新. 推出 新產品 ——AdGuard for Safari,甚至“復活了” AdGuard Pro for iOS。
隱私保護仍是我們的首要任務。我們網站進行雙因素驗證(2FA) 。我們會暴露出 一些騙人的盜取使用者個人資訊的廣告攔截器。
但這並不是我們做的所有工作。我們還玩得很開心!AdGuard 慶祝了其成立10周年慶典 ,與很多其他行業參與者參加了廣告攔截程式開發者峰會
It's safe to say that 2020 was in a lot of ways a unique year for everyone. AdGuard, just as everybody else, had to adapt to new realities. But that doesn't mean we stopped improving our products. Far from that, we even developed new ones!
Of course, the biggest thing that happened to us this year was AdGuard VPN. It was a very natural continuation of our efforts to improve users' privacy. We tested the waters with a browser extension, which was then followed by apps for Android and iOS. Versions for Windows and Mac are in development and you'll read about them in the next year's recap
It's also impossible not to mention the fact that AdGuard DNS became the world's first DNS-over-QUIC resolver, and you can try it out in our Android and iOS apps, or with the help of AdGuard Home.
Our story continues. We improve and develop our apps, striving to make them more beautiful and easier to use. We are preparing new research, dissecting threats to security, privacy, and effective web surfing. And we thank every AdGuard user: thank you for being with us, motivating us and helping us a lot!
