Adguard + 3rd party VPN on MacOS


New Member
I wonder if anyone has experience running Adguard on MacOS in conjunction with a third-party VPN service such as HotspotShield or VPN Unlimited? I am interested in the ad-blocking and anti-spyware capabilities of Adguard but am concerned that it may complicate my set-up too much to try to get it working with VPNs. Any feedback would be much appreciated!

Hello there!

We always test AdGuard for compatibility with various antivirus and third-party VPN services.
There are no problems with the applications you specify.
You do not need to use any additional settings. The quality of the filtering will also not be affected.
