Adguard does not appear to be blocking Facebook or Instagram sponsored ads. Any idea why this is happening? I am using v3.5 nightly 3 (17).

AdGuard for Android can't filter/remove ads from the Facebook or Instagram apps unfortunately.

It's impossible to filter ads from apps that run the ads from the same domain as the app or otherwise you will just filter the domain. The only way to filter those ads is to run unofficial tweaked apps that remove the ad components. Like running YouTube vanced app to remove all YouTube ads.

The problem is that now you have to trust the distro and make sure that the apk is not malware.
