    (please forgive me. This is a copy / paste of my question on Reddit. I just figured it might be better to ask here)

    So, since I got my Pixel 3 XL about 2 weeks ago, Internet with Adguard Pro on is painfully slow. Like really really slow. Most notably in Chrome and Instagram.

    I never had this issue on my Pixel 2 XL. Everything was working great with normal, fast internet. So no clue what the difference is between the devices.

    Today , in Apps Management, I found an (system) 'app' simply called ''DNS''. I turned it off for Adguard. (flipped the Adguard protection switch for the 'app').

    And now it seems, all is working fast again.

    I still use Adguards DNS in the main settings, though.

    Now I just wonder if I did a good thing. What exactly happened ? And should I keep it this way ?

    (I so hope I am making sense, lol)

    Hello!

    Can you go back to the default settings and just try changing the DNS server type from DoH to DoT/Crypt/Regular and check again?

    Hi,
    You mean 'reset' the whole app Adguard ?
    And how / where do I change to DoT/Crypt/Regular ?

    I'm sorry, I truly am a noob when it comes to this. All I remember is everything working great on my Pixel 2 XL, whichever settings I used.
    And on the 3 XL Internet is so so slow with Adguard enabled :(

    It's ok :) Open AdGuard - Apps management - 3 dots - Reset settings, then go to AdGuard - Settings - DNS Filtering - Choose AdGuard or Google DNS then find the option named as server type:

    Try with all types and check :)
