AdGuard + iCloud Private Relay issue


Beta Tester
Hi, there is a problem with combination AdGuard and iCloud Private Relay on the macOS Monterey and iOS/iPadOS too - blocking ads not working if iCloud Private Relay is active.

Hello there!

We made a workaround in the beta version of Adguard for macOS.

But AdGuard and iCloud Private Relay cannot work at the same time. iCloud Private Relay is disabled automatically when AdGuard is active.

AdGuard cannot block ads when Private Relay is tunnelling traffic, because the Private Relay does it before network connections can be filtered by AdGuard.

It is recommended to use more traditional VPNs when using AdGuard
