Does Auto-Update over Wi-Fi Only Ever Work? No?

I have this on in AdGuard Pro. I leave AdGuard Pro open in the background (not that it matters if it's in the foreground, either). And I have Background App Refresh on and on for this app in particular.

No matter what, my Safari Content Blocking Filters absolutely never automatically update.

I always have to manually do it with Check for Updates.

Does anyone have any insight into this?

Hello!
What do you mean exactly "never automatically update"?
Hey. Thanks for reaching out.

So, unless I'm misunderstanding the purpose of the setting, I took "Auto-Update over Wi-Fi Only" to mean the app would update my Safari filters on its own in the background without my having to press the Check for Updates button.

The description for "Auto-Update over Wi-Fi only" states that "AdGuard will only use Wi-Fi for background filter updates."

Filters are, obviously, things like English, Social media, Annoyances filters, et cetera.

In order to get them to update, I have to press Check for Updates under Safari Content Blocking. I was hoping the Auto-Update setting would handle this aspect on its own. But that never happens.
