    The Adguard web site implies there is a difference in function between the Google Play and 'standalone' versions. I have not found any differences. Have I missed something? When Adguard starts it requires me to authorise the VPN connection every time. Again, have I missed something? Needing authorisation each time is annoying - the Windows version of Adguard runs silently - is it possible for the Android version to do the same?

    Standalone version supports filtering of browsers AND all other apps, whereas the Google Play version only supports the filtering of browsers.

    That is what I thought..... but I still get ads from The Telegraph app when using the standalone version.

    This is where Adblock seems to be a more preferable solution, since it does block ads in all apps (not just browsers) and does this for free.
    Is there any possibility of policy change?

    Can you block Trading212 Forex for Tablet advert in your filter?

    What kind of policy change did you mean?

    I've just tested it and no ads were shown. Do you see any there?

    We plan to change pricing, making Android cheaper, but we won't make Adguard a freeware.

    Can you give us the link to the app in PlayStore please?
    Also, what filters do you use?
