Just a few first impressions of your Mac Beta after playing around for about 2 hrs.

  • After downloading I have to go to "Preferences" and check "Launch Adguard at login". Should this be done automatically or prompt the user ?
  • After a restart "Adguard. App" wants to know if i will except incoming connections. (I have allowed). Further restart it asks for the same.
  • Note : I do have the OS X default Firewall on but it continues to ask after every restart after allowing.
  • Disabling the Firewall it will Auto launch after every restart.

Will try a bit more testing on the weekend time permitting. But seems like a great App.

Hope i posted in the right place as i could not create a new topic ?

Getting a some security issues using Opera. Safari, Firefox and Chrome work fine
You need to install Adguard certificate to Opera. We have only Windows manual ( ), but the principle is the same. Just go to Opera settings -> Certificate management and add Adguard certificate. To find it press Shift+cmd+G, type in ~/Library and choose this file:

Thank You, thank you folks so much!

Adguard has made the internet so much simpler and enjoyable for me. I am currently using all Adguard products available for OSX, iOS, as well as DNS beta on my Apple Router. I also use a paid VPN service and to this point they don't interfere with one another at all.
I do have a recommendation and I'll post it in correct forum as well.

I'd like to have a link or a method to quickly test Adguard installations. Maybe there is already a site or service for this?

Once again, Brilliant! And thanks you.


Same for me. Adguard did not work.

However I have NordVPN DNS in my Wi-Fi router settings, maybe it is why
