DNS adblocking. Never have to worry about it.
You can go here on changing your DNS to block ads
Or if you want to go a different route, research Pi-hole
Edit: You can configure your router to cover all devices or do it individually. I'm able to configure it on my cellular network also
I suggest an app like Adguard Pro that implements a system-wide ad blocker. I've been able to play a lot of freemium games that would have otherwise shown a full-screen advertisement either after or in the middle of its gameplay.
Android only and you'll need root.
If root is not an option then you have these alternatives:
What all of those apps do is block ads and malware domains at system-wide level.
For Firefox (mobile and desktop) and Chrome for desktop I'd recommend the extension uBlock Origin.
Feel free to reach me if you need any further assistance.
> AdGuard is made by a Russian company
If that's the only "bad" thing you can remember, we are doing quite well :)
Originally, AG was a Russian company indeed. However, we've currently in process of transitioning the HQ to Cyprus. The choice was obvious as the privacy laws in EU are quite more advanced comparing to other countries; meanwhile, Russia and the US are both moving in another direction. The development team is mostly located in Moscow; also, there are people from Poland, Ukraine, South Korea and Slovakia on the team.
> so I'd be cautious about installing it and letting it intercept all of your web traffic - especially https.
That's understandable. You should be cautious with any app doing it regardless of its origin.
A few points:
> Check out DNS66 which is a free version but is open source.
DNS66 is a great app indeed! It is not a full-scale ad blocker as AG, but it's sufficient for blocking most of the ads. Being an open source is also a good thing. We can't afford to open the source code of a paid app, but we do it for all our free products (browser extension, AG content blocker, AG for iOS, etc).
Adguard provide shortcut to block YouTube ads in safari.

Bonus: YouTube PiP shortcut.
If Discord fails to declare the things I mentioned, Discord Inc. will have the European Union on their arse.
And the European Union will ban Discord Inc. from providing a service in Europe.
This is how the Swedish Authority for Privacy Protection enforces violations against GDPR.
General Data Protection Regulation
Besides, ads can be easily blocked with an adblocker, preferably AdGuard.
I use 1Blocker X and with their recent update, 1Blocker supports blocking ads on YouTube (if you're playing a video in Safari). The premium version also has a Firewall feature that blocks ads and trackers system-wide. But at least on my 4-year-old 8 Plus, it drains a lot of battery.
Some other options that you may want to consider:
In Firefox, I can limit certain sites or a group of them to their own sandbox, kinda like their own incognito window.
This way I can keep big tech out of my Reddit, work and other things for example. It obviously can't prevent 100% tracking, but that's not what it's meant to do anyway, but it does a reasonable job of keeping various aspects of life separate in a way.
Also ad blocking and extension support in general is very very limited in Safari. Adguard wrote an extensive post about this : https://adguard.com/en/blog/youtube-ads-in-safari-explained.html
Safari is alright for a standard baked in browser, but it's not ideal really. Also it's not cross compatible and the developer options are all over the place to be frank. Firefox is really nice in that regards.
If they go through with this, just set your DNS to Adguard DNS or do ad blocking in your router and use a VPN to your home (e.g., Wireguard). The advantage of doing this is that ad blocking is provided to all your devices.
Something everyone should know: Adguard DNS https://adguard.com/en/adguard-dns/overview.html
You can set it up on any device or even your router at home and it will block ads directly on your network. Not sure if it works with youtube ads though.
You can actually just change your DNS server from your router or device if it allows you to.
Changing your DNS to 184.108.40.206 on the router will auto block ads for every device on your network.
You can set your dns to one that blocks trackers and ads. Keweon is what I recommend but there's alternatives like adguards (both do not log/ track). Just set your vpn or computer or whatever to use the dns.
AdGuard DNS. No need for app, system wide. It doesn't block internal ads, though (YouTube ads inside app, Reddit ads inside app, Facebook ads). It does block all other ads (like in-game ads, 3rd party ad syndication) system wide.
Congratulations, the Z Play will be an awesome upgrade from the iPhone 6.
The Z Play gives you a pretty pure Android experience.
If you haven't used the phone much, upgrade to the latest 7.1.1 version and possibly do a factory reset after in order to avoid any issue (there shouldn't be any of you don't, though).
Give the Moto features a shot: chop chop for flashlight and wrist twist for camera are awesome and hard to live without once you get used to them. I likely already noticed Moto Display and its "Jedi Mode" (wave for Moto Display).
The Google Launcher is deprecated and will no longer receive updates, so try a better launcher. Most people (including myself) love Nova Launcher (enable Google Now integration by installing the little helper app it tells you to install).
Then explore the Play Store and get some of the apps that make all the iOS fans jealous.
PocketCasts for podcasts is brilliant.
There is an ample selection of excellent Reddit clients available on Android, almost too many to choose from. I personally love Boost for Reddit, but Relay for Reddit and Sync for Reddit are also excellent.
You can sideload things from off the Play Store as well, check out AdGuard as easily the best adblocker for Android (free for browsers, paid if you want to filter all apps).
Try an automation app. Autoset is cheap and easy to used.
Above all: have fun.
Not true. You can block ads to any device on your network with a pi-hole or something similar.
Apparently with pi-hole you can pair it to a VPN and when your phone is on VPN it will also block ads, even on cellular network when you're away from your home wifi.
It does not.
~~Also, this app no longer gets updates due to changes in Apple’s policy with “fake vpn” apps. Details here.~~
Edit: As pointed out by /u/Squalor- there is a planned update but they will likely be removing the system-wide ad blocking feature.
You could set your Xbox‘s DNS server to AdGuard DNS to (at least) block the pictures of the Ad-Tiles, but the empty boxes will stay unfortunately.
uBlock Origin sur Firefox mobile, avec les listes "annoyances", en navigation privée/incognito + si besoin un DNS menteur (https://adguard.com/en/adguard-dns/overview.html ; self-hosted: https://try.popho.be/byeads.html + huile de coude ou https://pi-hole.net/) (pour toutes les applications, pas juste ton navigateur)
Et oui, le Ouèbe en 2021, c'est de la méga daube.
You can follow this guide for AdGuard.
As for the web browser, if you’re using chrome, switch to something that allows add ons and add uBlock Origin, like Firefox. That’ll take care of most of them. Unfortunately the Android in app browser is based on Chrome. AdGuard DNS will block the ads but it’ll be big blank spots where they can’t load. Beats having a hundred ads though.
If you’re using iPhone though, just download the AdGuard app and follow the instructions therein, as well as the AdGuard DNS instructions on the site I provided and use Safari rather than Chrome.
A+ title, lol.
What you're looking for is this: https://adguard.com/en/adguard-android/overview.html
Blocks ads through every app on your device and has many filters to choose from (which also get constantly updated).
Want no ads for free without having to install anything? If you are a private user (i.e. not a corporation - costs involved) all you need to do is set your DNS Server to point to Adguard. Takes 30 seconds and you'll never look back
-- Adguard is the most refined. Has the most features. Pay model. Monthly, or lifetime.
-- Block This is very simple. Not as slick an interface. But it's free, donation model.
-- AdClear is also free. Somewhere in between the two above re: features and interface. But they reserve the right to monetize/sell your information in the future...
I would agree with most everything you said, however, regarding Safari...
> But extensions are missing, for example Dark Reader.
Safari does have a very sparse extension ecosystem, but Dark Reader happens to be available. It's a paid extension for Safari though.
> Ad Blockers have 50000 rules limit
A lot of developers of ad blockers are getting around this limit by bundling multiple content blockers in their app. You get 50k rules with each blocker.
Here is AdGuard describing how they are going to do it on iOS:
They plan to ship five content blockers, which will enable up to 250k rules.
There is Adguard for Android: https://adguard.com/en/adguard-android/overview.html (I believe there is also an IAP, but I don't remember because I haven't used Android in 3 months)
Edit: OH SHIT! How could I forget about Opera! Opera VPN is completely free, and blocks ads AND trackers. And if you're going to use Opera VPN, Try Opera's new browser as it also blocks ads. (Both apps available on iOS and Android)
You can adblock without root, but it's an ugly solution, using the built in VPN framework from android.
You install an app like Adguard, which doesn't connect to an external VPN server, but just routes all traffic to the app itself, which will filter out all ad traffic.
Alternative PiP shortcut if you prefer safari browser.
Bonus: Youtube adblock shortcut by Adguard.

What are you using to get your streams from? the /r/soccerstreams threads play fine if you choose something with a proper or low MISR for your internet isp capacity (adaptive ones work best) and meant for mobile. If you need adblocking set a adblocking dns just for the games for your xbox networking settings or even on the router. I use 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 from https://adguard.com/en/adguard-dns/overview.html
Even the strange english ones from India or France with english commentary (Sony TEN or RTE)
After the games are over remove the dns setting or default them to normal (your call on how safe you think they are)
You should not install the AdGuard AdBlocker extension because it overlaps the functionality and is no use. You should install the AdGuard Browser Assistant plugin. https://adguard.com/en/adguard-assistant/overview.html
This plugin integrates with your AdGuard desktop software and can control some basic actions.
Currently using AdGuard's DNS. I needed something more reliable than my ISP's DNS and it has some more advantages. It's quite fast and filters some ad/malware related domains. Plus they promise no logging. https://adguard.com/en/adguard-dns/overview.html
I personally use AdGuard, which is $25 for a lifetime license on mobile. It's always running in the background as a local VPN that effectively is just screening out known ad-serving domains at the DNS level so there's very minimal battery life impact. Over the last 24hrs on my device, it only used about 18mAh of juice.
Edit: also, this blocker doesn't require a rooted device which is nice
I've been using AdGuard for awhile. Just bought the lifetime premium license after my trial ended. There's even a version for your PC although I have not tried that one yet.
Regarding Youtube, that's not easy:
Regarding lag and such. Since the latest beta version you can convert Adguard into a hosts-level ad blocker. It will do pretty much the same as AdAway. Also this mode is available for free.
Here is an instruction on how to do it:
Edit: published a better description for this "saving" mode:
Use AdGuard. Do not use the one in the playstore. Search on Google and you will find the apk. It can block in apps ads also but required premium version for that!
No, it is not. Our policy on this:
Of course it is not the same as being an open source. We're just trying to be as open as possible in these circumstances.
Personally, I'd run the DNS provided by AdGuard, if it's fast where you live. Doesn't block all, but does a darn good job while not breaking the internet.
>Adguard would send my IP to google
Huh? That's not how DNS works.
>that person decides to go to my DNS provider
>We keep and store the anonymous database of domains requested in the last 24 hours. There is no information whatsoever that could link any of these domain names to the original user who sent the request. We need this information to identify and block new trackers and threats.
>All data that we collect, we do not share with any third parties
Under any normal setup, the answer is that they know your browsing history, to a degree. On https connections they can see the main domain you visit, for example if you visit reddit.com/r/duckduckgo they only know that you browsed reddit. On http connections, they can see every subdomain you visit. Your ISP cannot see the history that is stored in your browser, what they see are their own records of every connection you made through them.
If you want to avoid this, you can choose to use a different DNS (domain name service, bascially the service that tells your browser which server to contact for the domain you entered). All modern browsers offer DNS over https (for example Firefox), you only need to enable it in the settings. However, this only protects what you do in the specific browser. Any other software will still connect to your ISP's DNS.
To avoid this, you can set up something like AdGuard DNS or get a trustworthy VPN. However, you must choose a DNS/VPN that you trust more than your ISP, because whatever DNS you use, they always can see the sites you visit, there is no way to avoid this.
AdGuard has an iOS shortcut to block YouTube ads. This eliminates the waiting period on videos. It needs to be run every time you go to YouTube in Safari though.
Are you talking iOS or macOS? On iPadOS AdGuard app will block the YouTube ads in safari but it is slow to load webpages.
AdGuard also has an open source shortcut that works excellently and is very fast however. The only downside is that you have to run the shortcut using the share button in safari every time you refresh or reload youtube.
I have modified the shortcut to remove the “Adblock enabled“ notification, and favourited it so it’s at the top of the list in the share button menu in safari. This makes it really fast to run the shortcut, and you are free to navigate around YouTube to several videos and explore pages and whatnot without having to run the shortcut again until you force close safari, or exit out of the YouTube tab.
I had recently started using a DNS based ad blocker
Configured the router with the DNS so all machines in the house get it without any software added.
The bonus seems to be that all the sites that block ad blockers don’t get blocked. IDK what the technical reason is around how they can detect software blocking vs DNS blocking but going this route has been wonderful the last couple weeks.
AdGuard DNS is the best one I've found so far.
- Doesn't use a local VPN, so you can block ads and use a VPN at the same time.
- You only need to set it up once per wifi network.
- As per their FAQ: "We do not save any personal data and do not log any of your actions."
- Doesn't work with mobile data, only wifi.
A few things off the top of my head...
Delete your Google account, reset your advertising ID, disable Play store. Check all your app permissions. Install F-Droid (FOSS Play store alternative), install Yalp (another app store that downloads APKs directly from Google). Install AdGuard or something similar. Use TOR/VPN, plenty of choices floating around on this subreddit.
System-wide Ad-blocking apps aren't allowed in the Play Store so you've got to load it separately. You can get AdGuard directly from its official website.
Adguard helps a lot, and uBlock too. As for mobile games, get an emulator like John GBC/SNES and/or Mupen64 and play some retro games.
This post was not sponsored by any of the above
No, only Safari and the search engine you use can see this
In general, the app and AdGuard servers can only see information strictly related to your subscription, such as your email address.
>100% local on the iPhone or is there any connection with a centralized platform
Regularly AdGuard will update filters which by default includes their lists, both for ad and malware filtering.
>any technical documents or whitepapers
Unfortunately, aside from the rather sparse doc and the source code itself, there's not much documentation.
Been running it for over 3 years when I installed it on my Note 8 and now on my N20U. If you look around/google now and then you find deals. I got the lifetime license for like <$30.
Also takes out the ads on apps too even though some, like Samsung App Store still gets around it occasionally with their annoying pop up ads.
You have to get the version on their site and side load it I believe to block ads in apps too. Otherwise I think their Google Play version only blocks ads on browsers unless that's changed since when I got it.
There's AdGuard Home but I haven't tried it.
If you're familiar with Docker, you can install that on Windows and setup a Pi-hole container there.
In may case, I have it set on a $10 Raspberry Pi Zero W.
it’s the same now. difference is that with Pro you’re stuck with iOS. with premium if one day you ditch iOS you just carry your license over to your new device.
You control the install on your own device which blocks ads on your entire network, open source code, better support, to name just a few.
And, Pi-hole doesn't have a "purchase" option - it is free and funded solely by user donations.
I'll suggest Adhell or Adguard.
Adhell - /r/Adhell
Adguard - https://adguard.com/en/welcome.html
These are system wide ad blockers. Adhell will block ads without creating a local VPN whereas Adguard will create a local VPN and filter out all the ads. Both of these apps can also be used as firewalls.
AdGuard's free DNS servers, 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 for IPV4 and 2a00:5a60::ad1:0ff and 2a00:5a60::ad2:0ff for IPV6, because the're very good at stopping ads
Whoops, that's the crappy version. Here's the real one, although it costs money. You can find it somewhere for free, though... if you know what I mean.
Try AdGuard Pro. One time payment, and can block ads system-wide by effectively using a VPN configuration profile to pass all traffic through their DNS servers to filter out ads. Though apparently they'll be discontinuing AdGuard Pro in its current form due to Apple's policy; it looks like they won't be updating the app as a result, but will be leaving it up, so I don't know if Apple will take it down from the store eventually, but you should still be able to continue using it even after it's taken down, if it is. Seems like Apple's official policy is currently to disallow any content blockers that affect anything outside of only Safari.
It's not worth it, especially if all you want to do is remove bloatware and ads.
For systemwide ad-blocking, use AdGuard or Blockada - both are superior to the old hosts file method.
Scroll down a bit, hit the "Android" tab, then the "Download" button. As it downloads an APK you have to allow program installation from external sources in system params (temporarily is best, do not forget to revert to normal after the installation).
You have to pay subscription fee to block ads inside apps, but it doesn't seem to mention that in many places.
It only blocks ads from browser, which is quite misleading because it mentions blocking ads from apps, but it doesn't mention anything about subscription fee until you install the actual app.
If this is how ad blockers work, then I'll rather pay for ad-free apps than paying for subscription for adblock.
Just fyi (I totally agree with your answer): AdGuard introduced a new DNS service that will give you more control over it. In case you're interested to find out more:
This question has been asked for many times, each week, for the last, I don't know, 2-3 weeks.
If you just type "adblocker" on the searchbar on this subreddit, you'll find all of those questions/threads, with most resounding answer is Adguard. Why Adguard? You can find the explanation here. Basically, what you need is an adblocker that still have the "old style"/classic adblocker extension. On Adguard this extension is called "Advanced Blocking", so make sure you enabled it (most people who say Adguard doesn't work is because they don't enable this extension). You can also try another adblocker extension, but just make sure that it also has this classic adblocker extension.
It's probably the ads dragging everything down.
I suggest using an ad blocking DNS server on your phone. It will prevent your phone from being able to download known ads and should affect apps and websites.
I've been using https://adguard.com/en/adguard-dns/overview.html for a while with good results (you don't need the app - just apply the settings in Settings). The only "breaking" issue I found was that clicking on Google search results that are ads doesn't work anymore.
That's a good question. According to this 2018 analysis of a fraudulent clone of a popular ad blocker, it could contain a file, coupons.txt, and while initializing, load an image from a third-party domain www.hanstrackr.com. A modified version of the jQuery library could then load these files, returning an obfuscated string: atob("here goes the hidden base64-encoded script") which it would then execute. This hidden script could listen to every request made by your browser and compare md5(url + "%Ujy%BNY0O") with the list of signatures loaded from coupons.txt. When the said signature was hit, it could load an iframe from the g.qyz.sx domain passing information about the visited page, and then re-initialized the extension.
atob("here goes the hidden base64-encoded script")
md5(url + "%Ujy%BNY0O")
Now, that image which it loaded from www.hanstrackr.com could itself contain a script which the jQuery extension could decode and execute within the privileged context of the extension's background page. (It should be noted that at the time of the analysis, the image did not do anything malicious, though it would have been possible for the server to start returning an image with embedded code that was malicious at any time.) Also, here is another analysis of fraudulent ad blockers.
However, u/rfreho, if you download an ad blocker from the Mac App Store or a popular repository you should be fine.
Whatever browser supports WebExtensions, OR if you want some ad-block capabilities on mobile you could also use a DNS server like AdGuard DNS. That's what I do. https://adguard.com/en/adguard-dns/overview.html
Adguard is a DNS blackhole with a proxy server to rewrite requests before they hit the browser in order to provide the cosmetic filtering.
They also break HTTPS by implementing their own CA to intercept your HTTPS traffic.
Given the closed source nature of the windows apps, the broken HTTPS and the fact they have access to literally all of your network traffic, you'd be insane to use it.
Use pi-hole + ublock origin to get the same functionality without broken HTTPS and open source code that you can vet yourself.
They have iOS and macOS Safari Extensions, plus a full macOS app for system-wide ad blocking if you want that. It's all open-source, and the devs have always seemed responsive to the issues I have logged.
I give it my strongest recommendation (for whatever that's worth).
If you don't want to stop using apps like the other replier said, you should 100% be using a filter. My preferred android app to do this is adguard. Note that it will consume significantly more battery though.
you can change the DNS of any router. it's quite easy to do. Here's a screenshot of how to set it up on Android.
or for any other device, click here.
Adguard is the only reason I can use Fi anxiety free.
Its "App Management" system allows you to explicitly allow/deny apps to use data/wifi in the foreground/background and you get the benefit of an Adblocker if you like.
You guys are doing it wrong. Use a DNS service with built-in ad blocking -- allowing you to use the YouTube app and other apps without any ads. Totally transparent and undetectable. Here's a couple:
You can optionally configure them to also block "adult" material, although you'd have to pry my remote out of my cold dead left hand before that happens.
I've complained to Samsung several times to no avail.
> Also, there is no option to delete nor hide the Ad Tile or advertisement on your TV. If the advertisement is specific to a certain app, such as Facebook, Google, Youtube, etc, you can contact the specific app provider itself for assistance
The only way I've found to block them is to point your TVs DNS at a service of your choice. I use OpenDNS and add samsungads.com to the blacklist. Or, pointing it at AdGuard should work too.
Or, if it's a new TV, return it.
And there is AdGuard. It doesn't need root and can block ads system-wide. It's not free if you want ads blocked in all apps, but it's absolutely worth paying for it to get all the features.
That's clearly not the best solution for android, most people are not rooted.
So far, the past 2 weeks, Adguard is awesome. No root. (Paid US$9.95/year for non Chrome blocking).
I've been running Adguard since November on my LG V10. I paid for the lifetime license ($25) and have no regrets. Since then, it has blocked 6GB, 228,023 ads, and 5 threats. No root required.
I've been using Adguard for a little while now. Working great and is light on the battery. If you install it you will have 7 days trial before you must buy a license.
Basically its a dns server that blocks certain requests to ad servers.
You could also try adguard dns (which is the same thing but easier)
If you know how to change the default dns on your router to server the adguard dns servers
For "Default" servers:
add this DNS server to your router and/or phone and/or computers. 188.8.131.52. It will block porn websites to your devices. Instructions in the link.
You can just try it yourself with AdGuard's own list of providers. The problem is they can't block ads if they're served from the same domain as the content. "Effectiveness" depends on what sites you visit, you might want to try NextDNS to have configurable filters without installing extra apps.
uBlock Origin works better because not only it can block ads served from the same domain as the content, it can also rewrite the blank area from the missing ad. You can achieve the same functionality on all browser apps with AdGuard for Android
Meni je Adguard odlican i free, za mobitel i PC, https://adguard.com/en/download.html
Websiteove koji su fakat ono dobri i eticno koriste ads njih whitelisteam a kad mi website neki pocne šopati pop-up, video adove itd njih blockam i boli me briga tko ce ga financirati te nek propadne.
You could configure Adguard DNS in your pihole configs. This way you have a local fast DNS block, with a second layer of blocking if things escape pihole and are still on the Adguard block list.
An advantage of this is also the family filter offered by Adguard DNS for those who might use it.
While you're here, spread the word about AdGuard.
The Android app was banned from the Google Play Store because it actually does an excellent job at adblocking, so it has to be sideloaded by downloading the apk itself, though it comes with an auto-updater. Specifically, I've been using it since January this year.
It's an adblocker that works by installing a VPN to your mobile device and runs a localhost-only VPN server. It also installs a root certificate so it can man-in-the-middle HTTPS connections and intercept the ads there too. It works in all apps, not just Firefox or Chrome. It's been a life saver, I absolutely distrust all ads with a passion, I find them all disgusting, and since installing it in January this year, I've saved GBs of data on my phone.
So torrent from trusted sources with a good reputation?
Unless you're actually trying to get a virus it'd be hard to find since video formats like mp4 can't contain malware or miners, in fact it's more likely your streaming site will contain a crypto miner (^^yeah ^^i'ts ^^kinda ^^an ^^ad ^^for ^^their ^^thing ^^but ^^still ) than in a file format that cant contain or use it.
Apple's made some dumb changes with Safari 12 and will eventually make it so that you can only get extensions from the Mac App Store.
Adguard has their browser extension in the Mac App Store now, though, and it works well. I'm not sure how many others are going to bother with this given Safari's limited market share, though, and so if you prefer something else for ad-blocking you might just consider switching to Firefox or Chrome.
Please don't spy on your kid. Yes, I understand your a parent.
Go into the DNS settings and change them to
This will block ads that he might click on that could give his laptop viruses and blocks porn and other stuff that isn't suitable for his age.
It works by not letting him access domains that are banned on the list. So stuff like adnetwork.com won't load. This effectively blocks ads. The same concept applies to websites like pornwebsite.com. There are ways to bypass it, but I highly doubt he will at 8.
You can read more about it here:
First of all, thank you very much for supporting us!
It sure is safe. Filtering takes place right on your device; we do not have access to your data. Also, your connection to the remote server stays encrypted and secure. Just like a browser Adguard validates the server certificate and does not filter it if there's anything suspicious.
Furthermore, we take some additional precautions.
Anyway, being concerned about your personal data is a right thing to do. That's why we provide a detailed description of almost every bit of the information AG sends or may send to our server. Briefly: AG sends necessary minimum of the information to validate the license key.
You should use the non-play store version though, from their website. https://adguard.com/en/welcome.html
But it's not free. I paid like $5 in Russian ruble for a lifetime licence hahah and works smoothly.
On their homepage it says "VPN-server is located on your device, so that there is no need to pass your traffic through a remote server in order to filter it."
Die Idee dahinter ist, dass es nicht wie ein klassischer Adblocker einfach im Hintergrund läuft, sondern dass man beim Laden von Youtube einmal ein Skript ausführt (das ganze wird über die iOS Shortcuts gemanaged), dass dann so lange Youtube Ads entfernt, bis man die Seite neulädt (Beim Anklicken von Videos lädt Youtube generell nicht neu). Das ganze ist natürlich nicht so praktisch wie uBlock auf dem PC, funktioniert aber meiner Erfahrung nach so gut wie man es erwarten würde.
noot familiar with the app itself! BUT I know on iOS a lot of the "ads" in my various app installs get blocked by using adguard DNS as my DNS server with install directions for installing it onto a mobile device, or even the router in your home. totally free.
i rarely see any ads anymore.....except on youtube, those still come through unfortunately.
Use AdGuard Assistant, not the regular AdGuard browser extension:
Depending on the filter lists you're using in AdGuard, using Privacy Badger and uBlock Origin can be redundant, but they also shouldn't do any harm. AdGuard can miss a few things and in those cases, it's good to have another blocker running.
You can easily test that for yourself: Compare how many Ads uBlock is blocking with and without AdGuard running.
If you have a content blocker installed, YouTube recently made some changes. A potential workaround for now is here.
In iOS 15, WebExtensions will allow content blocker developers to significantly improve on this. For now, the shortcut is probably the best solution.
For the difference between AdGuard Pro and AdGuard, see https://adguard.com/en/blog/adguard-pro-is-back.html and https://adguard.com/en/blog/in-depth-review-adguard-for-ios.html tl;dr
>they are basically interchangeable and you can choose whichever you prefer (and you really don't need both)
As for Premium subscription, aside from unlocking the custom filter, DNS and security filter feature in AdGuard for iOS, it also gives you access to premium features for AdGuard apps in other platforms.
No, the VPN service isn't included. You're probably aware that no (sustainable) paid VPN are available for the very low cost of AdGuard Premium license.
Scroll down to Step 1 then to 1. Click it, download the profile and then go into settings and install. I been using it since my 11, and have never had any ads in any browser, app, etc I’ve used. And it’s free
