Meet AdGuard v3.4 for Android, it’s time for it to see the world! Having tested two betas, we feel confident to present this version to a wider audience. Spring is a time for renewal, and software is not an exception. We've fixed some old bugs, updated CoreLibs and made the app more compatible with Android TV.

[Fixed] AdGuard blocks Internet connection #2842

This bug was a hard nut to crack. For a long time it appeared randomly (at least, it seemed so) on devices of AdGuard users. Still, the symptoms matched: smartphones lost any network completely while AdGuard was turned on. Of course, it was crucial for us to solve this problem, and at last, we've managed to do it. It’s beyond words how relieved we feel afterwards, let alone the affected users!

[Fixed] Firewall's restrictions are ignored when WiFi gets enabled #3313

Another troublesome bug that deserves special attention. In the previous version 3.3, if you had specifically prohibited some apps from accessing the Internet via mobile data, the restrictions worked right up until you enabled Wi-Fi, which was not the intended behaviour.

[Enhancement] Integration with DnsLibs #3229

DnsLibs is a DNS proxy library that's required to provide DNS filtering. It supports all existing DNS protocols including DNS-over-TLS, DNS-over-HTTPS, and DNSCrypt. We developed it to replace the old DNSproxy, which had one serious flaw: it caused high battery resource consumption. DnsLibs is much better optimized and will ensure a longer lifespan for your phone's battery if you're using DNS filtering a lot.

[Enhancement] Improved functionality on Android TV #3238

AdGuard for Android is first and foremost an app for mobile phones and tablets, but it can be installed on other Android devices, such as smart TVs. We have made several improvements for this specific case, for example:
  • AdGuard now better works with lists
  • Better navigation between AG menus on smart TVs
  • Option to click on snackbars
  • Option to exit the promo screen
  • "Close" option for all dialogues
Now AdGuard for Android will be much easier in use if you decide to install it on your smart TV. If you still encounter any bugs or inconsistent behaviour, please report it here.

AdGuard can not install CA certificate on MiBox S, Android TV 9 version. Any suggestions, please?

Thank you.

Unfortunately it's not possible to install the certificate on a Xiaomi Mi Box, nor a Nvidia Shield TV that isn't rooted due to both of them unable to install user certificates. Also there's no way to root a Xiaomi Mi Box either due to it being pretty locked down.

The only (real) Android TV box where it's possible to install the certificate on is a rooted Nvidia Shield TV.
