AdGuard Pro rises from the dead! It only took us a year to learn basic Necromancy. But in all seriousness, in this version, we have improved the Assistant, and there's also some localization updates.
AdGuard Pro is More than just ad blocking in Safari! It’s the most effective adblock browser plugin with data tracking prevention.
With AdGuard Pro you can select different DNS service providers, which opens new possibilities: faster and more reliable internet access both for Wi-Fi and cellular connections, parental control, protection from phishing and shielding your DNS traffic against interception and snooping. Add to this the Privacy module that detects trackers in real time and lets you decide which to block and which to let through. And all this on top of the excellent ad blocking in Safari, which has already proven to be of an unrivaled quality by the free AdGuard for iOS version.
Highly customizable AdGuard Pro will make your web surfing safe and fast!
NOTE: if you are using Pro version, there is no need to keep regular AdGuard app on your device.
AdGuard Pro is not just a Content Blocker — it has much more to offer:
— Firewall. Use AdGuard's ability to set up any custom DNS profile to shape your browsing the way you like. Select one of the tested and trusted pre-configured profiles like OpenDNS or Google Public DNS, or set up any of your own. Mind that this requires setting up a fake "local" VPN, but your outgoing traffic is not being routed through any remote server.
— Privacy protection. AdGuard Pro detects all types of trackers that spy on you and highlights them in the request log for you to decide their further fate. Combine this with DNSCrypt support — hide your actions online on DNS level by using any one from the long list of DNSCrypt providers — and you have a level of protection that is hard to achieve by other means.
— Parental control — some DNS providers offer configurations that will protect your children from adult content on the web, often backed up with protection against phishing websites. Use AdGuard Pro to set up one of them and shield your kids from the inappropriate materials online.
— Flexible configuration. Request log allows you to easily track all DNS requests and blacklist anything you don't want to see; vice versa, add to the whitelist any requests you think are unjustly blocked by your current DNS provider.
As AdGuard Pro uses a VPN profile to be able to change DNS settings, it may have compatibility issues with some other VPN-based apps. List of such known apps:
— HotSpot Shield
— OpenVPN Connect
— Opera Free VPN
— Ad blocking in Safari. Blocks any kinds of ads; more than 50 (!) various filters are at your service. So say goodbye to annoying stuff like banners, video ads, popups and such.
— Includes popular adblocker filter subscriptions - EasyList, EasyPrivacy, Fanboy's Annoyances. Block ads like a pro with the public and AdGuard filters.
— Regional and other filters. AdGuard is the first ad blocker that offers language-specific filters. You can now visit websites in different languages — all of them will be filtered.
— Blocking of trackers and social widgets. Special filters block all the counters and trackers to protect your privacy and remove excessive social media buttons.
— Speed acceleration. AdGuard removes tons of rubbish from the web. And clean pages open faster.
