AdGuard DNS on Mac and accountsd


New Member
I have tried on 3 occasions to use AdGuard DNS and each time it causes the process accountsd to use 100%+ of the CPU and crash. When I remove AdGuard DNS the immediate goes away. I met with an Apple genius today and they confirmed that this is a know issue. I have tested on several other Macs from friends and family and could not repeat the issue.

Should be noted it takes a few hours for the issues to arise, but the fix is instant.

Any idea?

Hello there!
That's pretty odd behavior.
What version of the operating system do you use?
Could you send me a report(crash) of the issue at PM?
