Is this normal for Adguard?

I turned on my computer after being out and a window came up. Usually Adguard just upgrades but this was different. I'm a bit concerned as to what is happening. If I restart the computer the same thing happens. Anyone give me some input?

Well, it's normal that it pops up that message/screenshot when first starting AdGuard for Mac. Since AdGuard for Mac uses a kernel extension, Apple's Gatekeeper feature requires the user to manually allow it (as per the screenshot, just click on the Apple icon in the top left corner, select System Preferences... and go to Security & Privacy and click the Allow button for the kernel extension. Otherwise, AdGuard for Mac can't function correctly.

I think it's time sensitive though, you have 5 minutes to allow the kernel extension, if I recall correctly.

Did you do what the image there said? Enable the kernel extension? Is protection in AG for Mac enabled (and green instead of red)?

I'm getting the same issue on a new install of Mojave, but when opening system preferences where there would normally be the approval for the extension, there's nothing there..?
