    Hello,
    I've been using AdGuard Family DNS for months without issues until a few days ago:
    AdGuard Family DNS is now blocking Google search in any browser on my Android phone.
    The addresses blocked by AdGuard Family DNS are:
    www.google.com
    www.google.fr

    Is this new behavior normal?

    If you did add Google on purpose, then I think it's too aggressive... and this DNS filtering becomes useless, because I need to revert back to default DNS and therefore lose the benefit of adult filtering.
    I can't survive the internet without Google search ;) and I believe millions of people are like me...

    Please remove Google from AdGuard Family DNS filtering.

    Hello!

    We had a short time tech issue, but now it seems to be in order.

    Restart your router and try again.

    Family DNS, IMO, should not lessen its restrictions. If anything, an actively evolving set of filters would be ideal, and restrict users to Google's safe search mode & and others like it. Also,
    Code:
    www.google.com, www.google.fr,
    etc can all be blocked without blocking users' access to Google. www. is a google subdomain. Google.com, etc remain 100% usable.
