    AdGuard mysteriously blocking websites, despite never being installed

    Would that be on only your PC settings side (my own DNS to googles) or is it meant by the general census as the (network being used), to connect all others that use the network - as you've mentioned? "and to my knowledge, none of the other people on this network have" Is this only happening to...

    @The Commissioner I never said the AG Knowledge Base Article was complete or meant to infer it was (as it's a good works in progress still), but and it's a BIG one, it's covering more to what's in Adguard now and to being more consistent/current of the releases in any advancements from Win...

    Apple Cracking Down on VPN-Based Ad Blockers That Work in Third-Party Apps - What will AdGuard do ?

    That's what I'm seeing also, besides a hand full of VPN's that have the feature to ad-blocking - I guess in-built of the client. Then Nord doesn't offer any ad blocking info. in it's homepage, features and FAQ that pop out to a viewer either, so it must be rather new to doing this. But does...

    Apple Cracking Down on VPN-Based Ad Blockers That Work in Third-Party Apps - What will AdGuard do ?

    I'm at a loss as what I've read - that no new updates to these types of ad-blockers and VPNs are allowed to update their apps through Apple store.

    Foremost what I said was- Which may have confused you and I should have said in Adguard setting - set to "no proxy". Sorry for any confusion. Without a system proxy set, and then in AG to use the system proxy would yield the same as "no proxy" -default- then, 'I think'. A proxy being set up I...
