We are happy to announce that such features as DNS filtering and Native Apple Silicon support have been added to AdGuard for Mac. We know you've been waiting for this feature so long, and so have we.

DNS filtering support [#685]


We've used the same approach as in AdGuard for Windows, Android, and iOS, bringing to the app for Mac DNS servers, DNS blocklists and allowlists. One of feature requests from users was adding DNSCrypt, DoH, and DoT support. Finally, it's all there, DoT included. AdGuard DNS has become the first public DNS resolver to support the cutting-edge DNS-over-QUIC protocol.
Now you needn't rely on a DNS server provided by your ISP by default, you can choose DNS servers from known DNS providers and add custom DNS servers. You can also add domains to DNS blocklist or allowlist and add complicated rules using [DNS rules syntax].
Besides, you can add DNS filters of your choice. You can find various filters and links to them [here].

Native Apple Silicon support [#801]

Another great news is that we're added М1 support, now AdGuard for Mac is fully optimized to run on Apple Silicon.
