Filter category "Security" disabled by default


Beta Tester

There is one thing which I find really counterintuitive in the newer Adguard releases. If you go to the screen where you enabled/disable or add filters, there is a category "Security" which is disabled by default because no filters within this category are selected.

To the user, this looks like there is no blocking of malicious domains enabled by default. But in fact it is, because when the "Internet-Security"/"Browsing Security" module of Adguard is enabled, known malware domains are blocked.

So in my opinion it would be better if there would be an "Adguard Browsing Security" filter preticked within the filter category "Security".
Otherwise, it looks like you have to enable the third-party filter list "Malware Domains" in order to be protected.
