    Hi.

    I reduced the numbers of filters used on my iPhone. To day I have the minimum I could get.

    However I have 49K+ filters and soon il will reach the 50K.

    I guess the same concern will face everyone, so will be the recommendation then?

    Thanks.b.

    I believe the limitation is down to Apple/iDevices rather than AdGuard.

    Yes it is. My question is what will we do as we are reaching thi limitation with fewer and fewer filters which are including more and more rule ?

    At the present time the only solution I found is to use a VPN service as Perfect Privacy, which provides filters.

    Yes, good question. Eventually we’ll end up having to disable more & more filters to keep under the limit which may end up allowing some ads through.

    Somehow I found a solution.
    For instance I disabled Adguard English filter and chose Easy list instead. Same thing for the French one.
    In fact, by choosing other filters than Adguard ones, you reduced the number of rules.
    I guess it is better this way than disabling a whole filter.
