Ghacks Deals: AdGuard: Lifetime Subscription (66% off)

AdGuard is a content blocker that is available for Windows, Mac, Android, iOS and as a browser extension for many popular browsers. The program runs in the background instead of just in the browser, and that is the main reason why it is such a powerful content blocking solution.

Since it runs in the background on the entire system, it is capable of dealing with trackers, malicious IP addresses, or advertisement in all programs that you run on the device, and not just in the browser you installed a content blocker in.

AdGuard is available as a personal and family version; both are commercial programs, and while that may sound like a bad deal at first considering that most content blockers that you install in browsers are free, it gives the company a financial base to operate from, and one that does not require making deals with advertisers or selling user data (not that all content blockers do that, but some do).

adguard interface

AdGuard installation on Windows is straightforward. You get a prompt on first run to configure the program to your requirements, if you want, but you can skip it if you like.

The wizard walks you through a series of pages, each giving you one or two options, with some of them pre-selected. AdGuard will apply language-specific filters automatically for instance by default, filter social widgets on sites, but won't block online assistants, requests to subscribe pop-ups and others.

It is recommended to use the wizard to create a base configuration, but you can change the settings later on in the settings as well.

adguard settings

AdGuard uses a base set of filters to block unwanted content on the Internet and network. Options to customize what is blocked, and to add more filters are provided. The base protection uses the popular content blocking list EasyList and AdGuard's base filter. Added to this are tracking protection filters for improved privacy and other filters based on your selection during the post-installation setup.

The Settings provide lots of options that you can tinker with. Here is a short overview of important options provided by AdGuard:

  • Enable stealth features to improve privacy. Lots of options provided including stripping urls of tracking parameters, setting all third-party and/or first-party cookies to self delete after a period, disabling browser APIs such as Push, Location, or WebRTC, or disable Windows-specific tracking,
  • Enable DNS-over-HTTPS, DNSCrypt, or DNS-over-TLS using AdGuard's DNS servers. DNS blocks known phishing and malware domains, does not store DNS logs, and offers encryption if selected.
  • Enable parental controls system-wide.
  • Control AdGuard's browser extensions.

The main advantages of AdGuard are that it runs on the system level so that content blocking happens there regardless of browser or other program that is used, and that it can be run on desktop and mobile operating systems, and in browsers to improve the manageability.

    Buy it and quit complaining about your browser. Works great, cheap. Much, much cheaper than high blood pressure.

      Just a browser version for desktop, OS versions only for android and ios presently. JMO but I would not use a browser VPN, too many ways for the browser to leak data and there’s no VPN protection for the OS and installed programs.

      Mobile ones are worth a try. Even with a VPN, mobile isn’t private to the degree computers are due to the way phones are regulated.

      There is a deal (beta):

    I trust AdGuard but not StackCommerce.

    I got a better trusted deal by going straight through AdGuard.

    I have lifetime sub, installed on my win10 pc, and phone. Very good adblocker. I wish the developers of Adguard, could make a debian / linux app aswell.

      They have a Linux browser extension for Ubuntu anyway and AdGuard Home (the IoT version) as a standalone in the snap store. The extension is available for other distros, not sure which ones at the moment.

      Browser version works about the same as standalone but does slow browsing a bit, as expected.

    Bought it last time the deal was available, worth every penny, especially for how easy it is to enable DNS Over HTTPS/TLS with multiple servers.
