Few FAQs About AdGuard for Android
- Why is AdGuard for Android not in the Google Play Store?
Google has a very peculiar policy towards ad blockers in Play Store. Basically, it means that any app that can block ads across the device is not allowed there, leaving flimsy content blockers as the only option. AdGuard has been removed from the Play Store as well.
- What’s the difference between the free and Premium versions of AdGuard for Android?
While the free version is excellent at removing ads from browsers, it doesn’t filter other apps’ traffic. It also doesn’t have the Safebrowsing feature.
- What are the main features of AdGuard for Android?
- Do I need root access?
No, it is not necessary. Unlike many other ad blockers, AdGuard can work in VPN mode, which lets it block ads even on non-rooted devices.
- Can I use a VPN app with AdGuard?
You can easily use AdGuard with AdGuard VPN. But in case you are using some third-party VPN — there can be problems.
The thing is, normally AdGuard ad blocker requires launching a local VPN on your device to do its job properly. On Android it’s impossible to run two VPNs at the same time, so you can see where this is going. But luckily there are some ways to circumvent this limitation. If your device is rooted you can switch AdGuard to a “Local HTTP proxy” filtering mode, in fact, it is even encouraging to do that. This way your device’s VPN “slot” can be occupied by a different app. Additionally, some VPNs allow the use of an upstream proxy (e.g., PIA VPN, Nord VPN) — check if your VPN provider of choice offers this option.
When it comes to AdGuard VPN, you don’t need to perform any additional manipulations. The integration has already been set up with the AdGuard ad blocker which will be activated automatically once both apps are up and running.
