    I am really interested in Adguard and would like to use it for my Android devices. I have a few questions and hoping one of you experts here can help me.

    Is there any way to block specific websites? I am not able to figure out how to do that. For example, it would be useful to let's say block Google image search since Google is terrible about filtering any kind of inappropriate images. If it's possible how would I do it?

    Are there any parental controls for Android version? I know that the Windows version that. We do use OpenDNS at the router level for our WIFI at home but I am not sure Adguard works with it or against it yet sometimes I feel like it may be compromising what OpenDNS does. Is there any way to whitelist OpenDNS efforts? I don't know how to accomplish this.

    I'd like more than ad filtering on Android someone please let me know how I can accomplish this with Adguard if possible. There is too much pollution on the internet and I don't it to flood any of our devices. Please let me know. Thank you in advance.

    Huh, there's no straight way to block google images search, however, I am sure people can help you with it here:

    Nope, we provide parental control in the Windows version.

    However, AG shouldn't mess with OpenDNS in any way. Moreover, you can set up Adguard to use OpenDNS itself. It can be done in Adguard's low-level settings, look for "pref.vpn.dns" key there.

    Just ask here on the forums. One more thing I'd like to mention right away - you'd better enable HTTPS filtering right away, thus AG will provide much better ad blocking quality.

    Andrey! You are a genius! Thank you so much for your help. The low-level setting is exactly what I needed now I can filter adult stuff with it on data with OpenDNS family shield IP addresses. It's working flawlessly. Exactly what I needed now I can purchase this product for our whole household. This is exactly what I was looking for. I really hope you guys stay in business for many years to come. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I will look at other tips you told me here. Now all i need to do is figure out how block google image search and I feel pretty good about this.
