How periodically should AdGuard be checking for filter updates?

    Is there a way of setting Adguard to update like every hour for example? Sometimes when I hover the mouse over, it says that the last updates were like 5-7 hours ago. I use parental control to passcode Adguard from unauthorised access.

    Is this normal? Or should it updating more frequently?

    If you're using the latest beta, it has a new option to set the filter update check period - I have mine set to 60 minutes.

    I sure could use that! Any idea on when it's coming into the stable channel? :cool:

    Well, likely when it's ready. ;)

    But before that release? Did you ever notice how often would the filters update?

    I have also done this, but have noticed at times it shows updates were last checked 2 hours ago.
    Should not be so, as I have set mine to 60 mins also.
    So not sure how well this works...
    Will investigate further when I have more time.

    Hopefully this feature will be successful in the next stable release! When I browse streaming sites for example, I always notice a minority of adverts do seem to slide in but once I manually update the filters, they disappear.

    Normally AG does it once in 6 or 12 hours (sorry, don't remember the exact value).
