    I would like if you could implement a feature that would auto clean cashe when i press on YouTube app just like AdClear has(it opens app window, force closes the app then cleans cashe and re-enables i).
    Now currently you have two option to do it manually every time or enable option for Adgurad to clean it but after a restart of your device.

    Actually, Adguard for Android already has this feature under Settings > Advanced > Low Level Settings (pref.root.clear.youtube). But it a) requires root and b) only clears the data/cache of the YouTube app after rebooting the Android device.

    Yeah but what about non rooted phones?
    It would be nice to implement same feature that AdClear has.

    @avatar any comments? How is AdClear doing it without root (and can it be added to Adguard)?

    @De_haos we checked the AdClear app, and frankly we don't like a feature like that at all. There are several issues with it: it is unreliable, not very subtle in what it's doing, but most of all, on Android 7+ it just doesn't help unless your device is rooted (in which case there are better solutions). So, in our opinion, implementing it would be mostly a waste of time with little to no positive effect.
