    Recently I noted that most times, it's difficult or delayed or almost not possible to download applications from play store while Adguard is running...I have to disable Adguard to start the download ...

    @Rajeevan hi! What are your Adguard/Android versions? What filters do you have enabled & does the problem persist if you disable them all temporarily but leave the protection on?

    @ vasily_bagirov My Adguard version is 2.9.135 beta (experienced the same problem with the previous version also) updated recently, and android version 4.3 (samsung s3). I have enabled English filter,Spyware filter, Social media filter, Annoyances filter, Experimental filter, Mobile ads filter, Simplified domain names filter and Anti adblock killer . I have not tried the same after disabling the filters yet and I will check whether the problem persists even after disabling them and update soon. Thank you for the immediate response...

    @Rajeevan another thing to look for is Apps management in Adguard. Is it possible that you have Internet access restricted for some of the Google Play services there?

    You might want to remove Anti-Adblock Killer as it hasn't been updated in 8+ months now, and is more-or-less dead. It's likely you'd run into issues running an out-of-date filter, IMO.

    @ vasily_bagirov Thank you for the suggestion. Regarding the previous question , i have enabled internet access to Play Store (over wifi even when the screen is off ). Regarding the Anti adblock killer filter, i will turn it off and let you know the result as early as possible.

    @ vasily_bagirov Still I have to exit adguard to start downloading. Is there any hidden restrictions (test drive) in playstore against adblockers? ( I would to know if any other users are experiencing the same problem)

    No issues here running the English filter, Annoyances filter, Spyware filter and Mobile Ads filter. As a test you might want to try disabling the Social Media filter, the Experimental filter and the Simplified domain names filters and see if you can update then. If I had to guess which filter may be the culprit, it's the Simplified domain names filter.

    @vasily_bagirov ,
    @Boo Berry


    I hope that the problem is solved. Applications were smoothly updated ( The problem was mainly with new app downloads) with only English filter, Spyware filter, Annoyances filter and Mobile ads Filter enabled. All other filters including (previously enabled) Social media filter, Simplified domain name Filter, Filter unblocking useful ads and Anti Adblock filter etc were disabled. Any suggestions?

    I have a request regarding filters. While enabling and disabling filters, each filter takes its on time to (auto) apply the change. So users have to wait till the change is applied after enabling or disabling a filter to proceed further to the next one. This could be avoided if you provide a common manual 'APPLY CHANGES' option within 'filters'. Please consider.
