Disable AdGuard DNS on specific networks. iOS.


New Member
Hey, it would be great to have the possibility to disable AdGuard DNS on specific networks.

Case: I'm running Adguard DNS on my router at home, so I dont need it on my phone, then I'm at home. In that case it would be nice if Adguard DNS would disable itself then I'm on my home network.

Hello there!

I'm in a hurry to delight you - this feature has already been introduced in the new version.
The release is expected in the near future.
Please stand by :)

Thanks for all the great work on AdGuard for iOS. I have a request re: the setting to turn off AdGuard DNS on specific networks. In its current form, it disables the entire functionality, but would it be possible to still have the filtering enabled while disabling the DNS routing?

Here's my use case:

I have a DNS caching/forwarding server at home that handles DoH for the entire house. For compatibility reasons (mainly my wife ;)), there is no ad blocking system-wide at home, so ad blocking is done at the device. On streaming services, ad blocking can cause issues, so I leave it wide open for our Apple TVs and I use AdGuard filtering on the phones, iPads, and laptops.

When I'm away from home, I use AdGuard to route my DNS requests to another DoH server, say, Cloudflare. I also use the AdGuard filtering to block ads.

What I would like to be able to do is leave the DNS ad-blocking filters turned on, but turn off the DNS routing when I'm home to use the local DNS server and switch back on when I'm away to use another DoH server. To accomplish this today, I have to manually go into the app and change my DNS server settings
