    What filters Adguard DNS use and does the use of DNS slows down internet speed that is provided by internet service provider?
    Is it possible to merge user filters with Adguard DNS?

    @Bushido Adguard DNS uses Simplified domain names filter. Whether the internet will be slowed down or not depends largely on how far you are from our servers (as far as I remember, you are from Europe, so the closest server to you is Amsterdam server). You can ping our servers to check it.

    It is not possible to merge Adguard DNS with your user filters unless you set up Adguard DNS with Adguard Pro for iOS or some other app that supports white/blacklists.

    So, I need to set Adguard DNS. Turn off all settings in Adguard Pro for Android except these settings that are needed to configure/enable white/blacklists. Copy/paste user filter rules to blacklist.

    @vasily_bagirov thank you for pointing that out. I have already enabled these settings.
    I wondered, does copy/pasting rules of other filters to user filter makes Adguard to use less memory?
    Because:
    Updating one filter instead many filters and checking network activity by one filter instead many filters reduces memory consumption?
