    Ok
    I can't test it because I haven't access to the filters list, the "Ad Blocker" Page is blank

    Edit:
    Ok, sorry, I just seen now this:
    "2. "Local VPN" will not work on small part of 4.0.x и 4.4.x devices due to errors in implementation of VPN to firmware of these devices.

    3. "Local VPN" will not work on some CyanogenMod and AOSP firmware due to the lack of VPN support."


    I use cyanogen mod 11s so it is normal that does not works?

    I don't use an Android device but just wanted to point out that the download URL doesn't seem to work. I clicked on it out of curiousity

    "Sorry - nothing to see here.

    There may be several reasons:

    The app you’re looking for doesn't exist
    or
    the app developer is not currently running a test
    or
    you are not eligible to participate in the testing program.

    If you received the link to this page from someone, we recommend you contact them for more information."

    Link should work fine if you're eligible.

    This is something new and it is not connected to Cyanogen and VPN issue.
    We'll test Adguard with cyanogen, thank you for reporting it!

    I've had a few connection drops and the one crash since i started testing last week which have been reported but i must say i'm very impressed at just how good this little app is,even in it's beta stage it's blocked everything i've thrown at it.

    Once the minor glitches are all ironed out i can see this being a must have app for those who worry about bandwidth and it's very well priced,i think it's around £1.50 pm if i'm not mistaken which imo is well worth it.

    Kudos to the developers for creating this great app.:D

    New beta's out, 1.0.239.

    Awesome, Local HTTP Proxy is added! However I found an issue when using this;

    - If you close/hide Adguard from the recent apps menu (holding Home), it stops Adguard's filtering even though the app is still running and is still in the notification bar/tray. To me, this is very critical as I prefer to keep recent apps clean. The expected behaviour is to have Adguard still filtering in the background regardless if I hide it from the recent apps menu.

    Finally, three feature requests for when using Local HTTP Proxy;

    - An option to hide Adguard's UI + Preparing to start protection dialog when starting Adguard on boot when using Local HTTP Proxy. I like the idea of having a silent start with the Adguard notification bar/tray icon indicating it's running/filtering.

    - An option to show the connection status via the notification bar/tray icon. Meaning it's green when filtering, and grey when not filtering. For Local HTTP Proxy mode only, of course.

    - Modify the notification bar text to show what connections being filtered, e.g. either WiFi or mobile connections.

    Thoughts?

    Hi Boo, thank you for the feedback!

    We'll fix it, thank you!

    Got it. I think we should make silent start default for proxy mode.

    What's wrong with current notification with connection status?

    If your device is not rooted proxy can be used for Wi-Fi only.

    Well I found when filtering was disconnected via the issue above, the notification tray/icon didn't reflect the change, it more-or-less stayed like it was still connected when it wasn't. The goal basically is to have a visual reference to when filtering is disabled. But I suppose if the issue with recent apps is fixed, this would be pointless.

    Yep, I know. Maybe for just rooted devices then? ;)

    For rooted devices we may show something like "Filtering is enabled for all connections" instead of proxy status.

    I don't have any spying mobile phone so I just can't participate in tests for Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Also I doubt Adguard for Symbian will be released :p

    I'll stay with Symbian as long as Symbian mobile phones will be available in stores, ebay etc. When they won't I choose some open source OS. I really like Symbian, it's exactly what I need. Calling, texting and Wi-fi. I'm one of these who says cell phone is a cell phone, not portable computer.
    Nokia 808 PureView released in 2012 was the last Symbian running device. Symbian is not supported any longer but fans and privacy nerds like me keep using it. "Symbian forever!" ;)
    Project Ara seems very interesting... but Google bought it :( I'll keep an eye on it anyway.

    Can't wait for Adguard on Linux :)

    I didn't know Linux was on the Adguard road map, much less Windows Phone.
