Adguard on Instagram

Hi,

If i'm correct, the Adguard for IOS works on DNS level. How come many instagram advertisements are still being showed? This is the exact reason why i am looking for an active adblocker on all possible ways.

This is due to the bullshit amount of casino advertisements i am getting based on profile / age setup on Instagram. I have nothing with Casino's frankly. I believe that ads are no longer a way of making revenue for costs made on a site, server or service but more like a "who pays most" model.

AdGuard Pro does, yes. At least custom DNS settings is one of the features.

Because DNS filtering has very limited capabilities compared to, say, regular filtering on desktop. Apple has imposed very harsh restrictions on non-Safari ad blockers. Some ads are just not possible to remove without hurting the app's core functionality. Instagram is one of those apps.

I feel for you, I too get frustrated by these ads, there's just no way currently for ad blockers to block them.

You can just use Friendly +. Friendly+ included FB, Instagram and Twitter. I already long ago get rid of fb app as well due to so many sponsored. Now I using Friendly+ as my alternative FB.
