Quote:AdGuard Home v0.107.2:

You know, it is very hard to break your bad habits. We're still struggling with one, the overwhelming need to roll out hotfixes to AdGuard Home releases.

Now this one is a hotfix release for a really critical CPU overconsumption bug in v0.107.1.

Please update asap and with this, we wish you happy holidays!

  • Infinite loops when TCP connections time out (#4042).
Quote:AdGuard for Android 3.6.6:

Disclaimer AdGuard for Android is not an open-source project. We use Github as an open bug tracker for users to see what developers are working on.

After the last update of AdGuard for Android, some users may have encountered the problem of the app crashing when using earlier versions of the Firefox browser. Well, we decided to close all debts this year and release the patch today. We also did something that no release can do without: we updated CoreLibs.

  • [Fixed] AdGuard crashes while using earlier versions of FireFox browser #4068
  • [Enhancement] Updated CoreLibs to v1.8.281 #4076

Quote:AdGuard for Android 3.6.7:

Lately some of our users experienced discomfort — they couldn’t make voice calls in WhatsApp when AdGuard v3.6.6 for Android is enabled. The CoreLibs team managed to combat this problem.

Besides, we’ve made several fixes to the scriptlets library. To recap, scriptlets are powerful blocking tools. In particular, they carry out a noble mission: to neutralize anti ad blockers. The previous version of AdGuard for Android had a scriptlet library that contained an incorrect fix for rules like #%#/scriptlet(“abort-current-inline-script”, ...), which could break some web pages; now the problem is solved.

Having dealt with all the issues, we’re ready to present a new version. Please meet v3.6.7, we’ve done our best for it to function smoothly.

Quote:AdGuard v4.3.2 for iOS:

Not all our updates are flashy and eye-catching, but they all make AdGuard better. So, meet AdGuard v4.3.2 for iOS — right from the oven. In this release we've mainly focused on improving the app’s performance and fixing minor bugs. You'll probably notice that AdGuard now starts faster than before. We hope you’ll enjoy the new version of AdGuard for iOS.

[Fixed] No Internet when using cellular connection (DNS64 network) #1901

Previously, DNS protection didn't work with some cellular operators with IPv6-only networks (e.g., T-Mobile US). A little AdGuard magic and everything works as it should.

[Fixed] Crash on opening an app with a large DNS blocklist #1883

Now you won't have any problems if you actively use DNS protection and your custom rules.

Version 7.9 from February 21, 2022

Now we know that we can create suspense no worse than Hitchcock: since the last release, we’ve presented three versions of the app (one beta version and two release candidates). But enough is enough! Meet AdGuard 7.9 for Windows, the release we've all been waiting for. Let's list the major innovations and benefits of this version so you can savor them.Let's start with the fact that we have worked hard on improving the performance of the application as well as its user interface.

You don't have to! Now you can specify IP addresses of the DNS servers that are used to determine the address of the encrypted DNS servers.What else? We fixed tons of bugs of different severity, including the problem with auto-activation of language filters. As a result, AdGuard's stability is improved now.

Quote:AdGuard Blog: Privacy Sandbox on Android and how it will affect you

AdGuard always keeps a close eye on industry news that affects privacy issues. Google recently introduced the Privacy Sandbox which will largely determine the future of privacy of Android users. And we certainly need to comment on it. This article is a brief overview of the situation made by Andrey Meshkov, CTO and co-founder of AdGuard. Now we are continuing to explore the topic, and a large research article will be published soon. Follow our blog and social media so you don't miss its release.

Google has announced a new suite of technologies called Privacy Sandbox that should (at least theoretically) make Android devices better in terms of privacy. But at the same time, Google is making it clear that they'd like advertisers to keep as many options as possible — and this is a tough balance to strike. Have they managed to do it?

Privacy Sandbox includes several separate technologies. You can dive deep into the matter yourself, but I'll try to describe the key points about each of the new initiatives here...

In general, all these initiatives (excluding Topics) can be described as improving users' privacy in the context of the ad market. But with one very important condition — ONLY those mechanisms should be used.

As for Topics, it reflects the (completely understandable) desire to keep the ability to utilize information about users' interests for targeting purposes. But this technology further expands the scope of that information instead of reducing it.

But even the good ones still leave a bitter aftertaste: de facto Google will become the single entity to control which ads users see on their Android devices. It was partially true before, but only within Google's own advertising network. Now they are looking to directly influence all other ad networks too, and we know that monopolies rarely end up being good for the consumer. We kind of know what is going to be happening on our smartphones now, and there's no guarantee it will stay that way.

This is the trend that we've been seeing for a while now — advertising networks slowly but steadily moving into our devices. Thinking about buying a new phone? Be ready to get your hands on a highly specialized tool for showing ads instead.

Quote:AdGuard Browser Extension for Chrome / Firefox / Edge / Opera 4.0.141 Released

Quote:AdGuard VPN major update for all platforms and extra 10 GB in March and April

Nothing of this caliber has ever happened in AdGuard! Today we release AdGuard VPN updates for all platforms — for macOS, Windows, iOS, Android, and browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. 7/7, that makes a bingo!

What's new
  • Exclusions 2.0
  • Full redesign
  • Rising prices and new subscription format
  • Auto-protection in AdGuard VPN for Android
  • Custom DNS servers in AdGuard VPN for Mac and Windows

We're giving all AdGuard VPN users, old and new, extra 10 GB in March and April. You'll have 13 GB of VPN traffic instead of three during both months — so that you can browse freely and get more information.

That seems to be it. Hurry up to update AdGuard VPN and see for yourself how different it has become. Hope you'll like it! As usual, we welcome feedback in whatever format convenient for you — share any thoughts in the comments here or on social media. See you!
