Adguard for Windows, Android, iOS
Quote:AdGuard for Windows 7.12​Release date: January 30, 2023

Two most important changes in this release: protection is turned on and off faster and DNS protection is now enabled by default. We’ve also fixed some bugs, updated CoreLibs and DnsLibs, and improved the WFP and TDI network drivers.

Protection is turned on and off faster​We’ve significantly reworked everything “under the hood”, thus improving the app performance: protection is now enabled, disabled, and reloaded much faster. Previously, because of the long startup and restart of the protection, the implementation of rules and other protection features could be delayed or could even cause a web resource to “leak” past the protection. Some connections could remain unfiltered. And after all, it was very annoying for the user to watch the long startup of the app. Starting with this version, it won’t happen again.

DNS protection is enabled by default​Now, if you have just installed AdGuard, DNS protection is automatically turned on. By default, the ISP's DNS server is used, and for security, AdGuard DNS filter is enabled: ads, trackers, and requests for malicious domains will be automatically blocked. To increase security, you can always select a DNS server from the list or add a custom one (for example, a private AdGuard DNS server) via Settings → DNS protection. DNS filtering allows AdGuard to catch ads and trackers even before the browser tries to connect to the ad server. So this update has also helped us improve the speed and quality of ad blocking. On top of that, DNS protection makes blocking “hidden” trackers more effective.

Quote:AdGuard for iOS 4.4.6​Release date: April 11, 2023

Spring is the time for renewal, and AdGuard products are no exception.

We've updated all the libraries used in the app and improved the UI, so now AdGuard for iOS runs smoother and is more user-friendly.

Advanced blocking rules acceleration​

The Advanced Protection feature is something we're proud of and what sets us apart from other content blockers on iOS. With this module, AdGuard for iOS can apply advanced filtering rules that supplement standard Safari content blocking rules and help effectively tackle complex and encrypted ads.

However, due to the peculiarities of iOS, the Advanced Protection feature’s operation was always limited compared to other versions of AdGuard. For example, some rules applied noticeably later than page load. Sometimes this led to ad "flickering" as it was only hidden after page loading. In other cases, this even prevented certain ads from being blocked.

When preparing the new version of AdGuard for iOS, we put in a lot of effort into speeding up the implementation of advanced blocking rules which directly improved the overall app performance. We hope you'll notice the difference.

Native support for the :has() pseudo-class​

With Safari v16.4, content blockers gained the capability to select elements for hiding using the :has() pseudo-class. While this might sound complex and confusing, it's essential to know that this feature is incredibly important to us. It allows for the selection of ad blocks based on their content.

Until AdGuard v4.4.6 for iOS, support for the :has() pseudo-class was implemented as part of the Advanced Protection module, available only in paid version.

Now, this functionality is available to all AdGuard for iOS users!

 Changelog​ Features​
  • Show SafariConverterLib version after tapping the app version in About #2050
  • Show Scriptlets and ExtendedCss versions in About #2121
  • Improved Safari Web Extension initialization speed
  • Incorrect description of Alternative servers in Spanish #2078
Quote:There are many ways to help the app identify an ad. One of them is the :has() pseudo-class. With it, you can, for instance, tell AdGuard to block anything called banner.

And here's the good news: since v16.4, this pseudo-class is supported by Safari and rules with it can be applied natively. This means we don't need to handle such rules with our ExtendedCss library anymore (although you still can do it by using the #?# marker) — the browser does it all by itself. And since the rules are...

Quote:AdGuard 7.13 released:

As spring arrives, AdGuard for Windows unveils its latest release, complete with numerous new features and improvements.

Experimental Encrypted ClientHello support
Notably, the addition of experimental support for Encrypted ClientHello (ECH) is worth mentioning. This new technology fully encrypts HTTPS connections, concealing server names you are connecting to from ISPs and ensuring complete privacy.

So that you can benefit from it, we’ve added the Use Encrypted ClientHello feature to the Advanced settings section and enabled DNS protection by default for all users.

New Advanced settings
We’ve also added 16 more features to the Advanced settings section. A detailed description of each feature can be found in our Knowledge base.

All new advanced features can be divided into six groups:
  • Anti DPI options allow to modify packets at a low level during filtering to prevent tracking via deep packet inspection
    • Adjust size of fragmentation of initial TLS packet
    • Add an extra space to the plain HTTP request
    • Plain HTTP request fragment size
  • Keepalive settings allow to configure settings to work with keepalive connections
    • Enable TCP keepalive
    • TCP keepalive interval
    • TCP keepalive timeout
  • Filtering exclusion settings allow to exclude both Wi-Fi networks and particular subnets (specified in the CIDR notation) from DNS filtering
    • Exclude specified IP ranges from filtering
    • IP ranges excluded from filtering
    • Exclude specified Wi-Fi network names (SSID) from DNS filtering
  • DNS-related options allow to fine-tune DNS settings
    • Use fallback DNS upstreams
    • Use HTTP/3 for DNS-over-HTTPS
    • Query DNS upstreams in parallel
    • Always respond to failed DNS queries
  • Certificate security options allow to check certificates of websites and web services
    • Check websites' certificate transparency
    • Enable asynchronous OCSP SSL/TLS certificate revocation checks
  • Enable filtering at system start-up. Now by default, AdGuard for Windows does not filter traffic after OS startup if the option Launch AdGuard at system start-up is disabled. If you want filtering to be performed even if AdGuard is not launched, you should enable this option.
Note that before v7.12 the AdGuard's service started in filtering mode by default (even if the [i]Launch AdGuard at system start-up was disabled). If you were satisfied with the old behavior, enable this option.[/i]

What else? Aside from the regular CoreLibs and DnsLibs updates, we’ve updated WFP and TDI drivers and ExtendedCSS. We’ve also allowed to disable the Filter localhost advanced feature. But be aware that disabling this feature will prevent AdGuard Ad Blocker and AdGuard VPN from working simultaneously.

Quote:We're thrilled to announce that AdGuard v4.0 for Android is now live and packed with features that will transform your online experience. Let's dive in!

Complete redesign. The new intuitive interface puts core features front and center. Plus, a new Protection section provides more control over Firewall, Browsing Security, and AdGuard VPN.

Total reengineering. We've rebuilt the entire app from scratch. The result? It runs faster and smoother than ever before.

Firewall. Now you can control the access to the Internet for all your apps — if you wish, prevent them from using the Internet without your knowledge.

Low-level settings rework. We've revamped Low-level settings to make them more user-friendly and intuitive, adding validation checks to prevent mishaps.

Detailed statistics. A dedicated tab lets you scrutinize all apps, companies, and domains, helping you identify and block anything suspicious.

Root access perks. On rooted devices, among other things, you can now apply DNS filtering to IPv6 requests — thanks to the *Automatic proxy* mode.

Integration with AdGuard VPN. Integrated mode is now more stable and enduring than ever, providing a seamless, efficient experience.

Selective app proxying. Now you can exclude apps from your proxy — even from AdGuard VPN!

Update AdGuard for Android to the latest version, try new features, and let us know what you think!

Quote:We are thrilled to announce the release of AdGuard v4.5 for iOS, which includes major changes and new features.

System-wide tracking protection​
AdGuard v4.5 for iOS now includes system-wide tracking protection, which allows you to block in-app trackers that can discreetly collect user data. We are proud to introduce this great achievement to you.

In this version, we have added statistics on blocked requests to the app (see the Activity tab). We have changed the counters on the main screen to show how many trackers are blocked and how much traffic is saved.

Besides, if you now install AdGuard for iOS or reset its settings to default, the AdGuard DNS filter will already be enabled. What does this mean for you? If you turn on DNS Protection, AdGuard will automatically start blocking ads and trackers in all apps — not just Safari. It doesn't matter which server you use — the DNS traffic will be filtered anyway.

DNS-over-HTTP/3 support​

In AdGuard v4.5 for iOS, we have added support for DNS-over-HTTP/3 due to the DnsLibs update. DNS-over-HTTP/3 is a newer version of the DNS-over-HTTPS protocol. AdGuard has become one of the first to support it, along with Google and Cloudflare.


  • No rules on the Content Blockers screen #2012
  • Updated DnsLibs to v2.2.8 #2171
Quote:AdGuard Browser Extension 4.2.168

​Release date: September 7, 2023

Review status:​
  • Chrome: Published (Phased release at 25%)
  • AMO: In review

This hotfix addresses several issues and fine-tunes the extension for an even smoother browsing experience.

We’ve fixed the most important bugs so, among other things, all rules will now be applied correctly from the get-go and you’ll be able to keep track of blocked requests more accurately.

Changelog​ Fixes​
  • Specific rules not applied in the new tab on the first opening #2459
  • The number of blocked requests in the extension menu is less than in the filtering log — redirects are not counted #2443
  • Domains from the allowlist are not properly escaped before being passed into the regular expression rules #2461
  • Custom filter name is not shown in the filtering log #2454
