    AdGuard Reads Credit Card Numbers and Passwords

    In the screen shot below, in permissions, it states that AG can read sensitive data. Does that mean it reads my passwords as they are typed in? CC numbers? Bank account numbers? In other words, does AG have access to my accounts?

    [Resolved]New member with a question

    I have had the free version Adguard on my iMac for several years. Very effective. How often does it update or do I need to manually call for an update? Also, is there a distinct advantage over the free version with the paid version? Thanks.
