[AdGuard] 3 Months Free for 3 Devices

AdGuard is an ad blocker for computers and phones. I've been using it for about a year now and it's been great. It blocks most ads on the websites I visit and all the annoying video ads I get when I play games on my phone. I found out that they're offering 3 months free for 3 devices because of COVID-19 and I wanted to share this with everyone.

Expiry Date: Unknown, offer still active as of May 19, 2020

I mostly use my iPhone so I ended up choosing AdGuard because it was the best one I could find for iOS. I also use AdGuard on my PC because it works system-wide instead of just in my browser.

In case anyone hasn't heard, Pihole/Diversion/pfBlockerNG inside your home network can protect *all* your devices. Add WireGuard and it works when you're outside your home, too. All software is legitimately free, so costs are only your time (and a Raspberry Pi, assuming you don't have an existing server/NAS, Merlin-compatible router, or old, unused laptop/desktop).

Blockada doesn't block Google adds. That's the reason adguard isn't on the playstore, Google doesn't like losing add revenue.

This was the magic sauce for awhile, but Google and other companies are catching on - PiHole can no longer block 100% of YouTube ads because of the way Google has started serving them up from the same servers as the legitimate video files.

Ad blocking isn't as simple as blacklists anymore - installed, device extensions are now needed to fully cover.

I bought it a few years ago in rubles (lifetime license). It was around 10$. Worth a try, maybe it still working?

Why not just use the free Adguard DNS from the same company? If you set it as the DNS on your router, it does all devices at home similar to how a Pihole would. Their DNS also supports encryption if your router supports it.

I use it in conjunction with uBlock Origin on all devices... Works excellent.

Why using an Adblocker at all?
Small websites / games that provide good content need revenue too.
So either pay the premium to waive the ads or let the developers benefit from the Ads.

yes thats fine, that's called......a commercial. cutting the cord was once the new boss is now the same as the old boss....

It can't track and data mine and correlate ads unless you logged into your account first.

the best part all those companies that offer dns blocking...... Potentially could be mining too? But your rpi is....yours.

If you run coreelec on a newer linux 4.x for amologic or libreelec for rpi/rkchip etc. You can use it for a media player and run all those as services in the background as dockers. Plus add some external drives and make your own cloud too.

The use of the paid version supports the free DNS. AdGuard as posted by OP is the most user-friendly option among the aforementioned.

I got a lifetime license a few years ago. If you install Adguard on your computer, not just the browser, it can block ads/ad-based malware in your apps as well as browsers without needing to install extra stuff or messing with your router. Just install and you're done. You can fine tune filter rules and such later on.

If you install on your phone, the main draw is that it can block ads/ad-based malware in apps and browsers by functioning as a local VPN, no need to root the phone. So, if the mobile browser you're using doesn't support extensions or block ads properly you can just run Adguard. You can use it to totally block an app's data usage as well.

However, since the typical smartphone only allows one VPN to run at a time, it doesn't work well if you run Adguard in local VPN mode but also want to use an actual VPN at the same time. In that case you can change your phone's DNS to something that blocks ads and/or use an adblocking browser.

Adguard is really good once you get everything locked in. I used all the other ones before however when I got my new pixel I didn't feel like rooting it.

I signed up for Adguard beta testing for a year then bought a lifetime subscription from stacksocial when it came up.

Of course it does. They had to remove the ad blocking features from the version they published on the play store so google wouldn't remove it.

You can install the full open source version with ad blocking from f-droid or their site directly:
https://blokada.org/index.html
https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.blokada.alarm/

For Host lists I recommend using the AdAway: list

If you read this thread carefully, solutions to block YouTube ads have already been described.

One that hasn't is the use of NewPipe. This is an OSS YouTube player for your Android phone that allows a number of YouTube Premium features, such as saving videos, background play etc. Get it with F-droid.
