AdGuard for Android v2.11.81

Not open for further replies.


This update is on a larger side, just judging by the number of entries in the changelog. Two‘whales’ of this release are both integrations with an external app: AdGuard Assistant and web reporting tool. Assistant will help you manage filtering in apps and browsers from the notification shade, and reporting tool is what it’s called — a convenient way to report any missed ads, false positives and such.

[Added] Extended AdGuard notification — an"Assistant" button #1614

There are now two action buttons in the AdGuard notification. One is“Pause”, which pauses the protection upon tapping(tap again on the notification to resume it), but the more interesting one is“Assistant”. When you tap it, a list of recently used apps and websites will show up. Tap on any of them for more options, like opening filtering log, denying the app network access(or whitelisting/blacklisting in case of a website), or proceeding to the app/website-specific settings screen in Apps Management.

We believe this will save you quite a bit of time, especially if you are an active user and often find yourself in a need to pause protection, whitelist a website etc. In fact, we tested it ourselves and found it extremely convenient! :)

[Added] Integration with reporting web tool #1615

This feature is already familiar to AdGuard for Windows, AdGuard for iOS and AdGuard browser extension users. Basically, this is a way to report any filtering-related issue on a page: missed ad, false positive etc. To do so, go to app’s side menu and select“Report an issue”. Instead of an immediate“Send a message to support” screen, you will get a dialog to select the type of issue. Choosing one of the filtering-related issues will open a web page and a wizard will take you step by step through the process of filling in the required information. Don’t worry, most of the fields will be pre-filled by the AdGuard app!

This way of reporting missed ads and such is beneficial to both filters developers and users — the former will get all the information they need to fix the problem, and latter will be sure that the issue will be resolved in the shortest amount of time possible.

Was going to ask about this Update's features as I thought it meant the Notification Bar at first. Then I was trying to get the1st AdGuard notification (which on my Galaxy A5) is actually just the VPN notification & not the AdGuard (proper?) notification :confused::rolleyes:
Either way, a definite improvement to what is already doing some much needed work nowadays with advertising getting out of hand!
