    Hi,

    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 ?

    Regards,

    You need to install Adguard certificate to Opera. We have only Windows manual ( https://kb.adguard.com/index.php?/R...icle/View/21/10/the-connection-is-not-trusted ), 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: http://screencast.com/t/w6eGmsrv

    Hi!

    Yes it does. But if you join beta testers (who test closed beta) you'll get a special beta tester's license key.

    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
