    I downloaded AdGuard and I wonder if the license is needed to use AdGuard. Can you use AdGuard and expect it to work without a license?

    After you install the trial if you never had used the program it will automatically install a trial license of 14 days, after that time you have to buy a license yes, it can be a Standard license or a premium license that diferes from the standard by having parental control and faster support

    Hello I am sorry if this is a duplicate question...
    I have the adguard extension added to my primary browser; Firefox.
    It seems to work well, as good if not better than adblock plus.
    I also installed the Windows PC version 5.10.
    Why do I need the PC license or even have it running on windows?
    I understand that my trial would run out (so please do not advise that),
    but what benefits would I have by keeping and purchase either the basic or premium license?

    Thanks
    Hal

    Adguard extension have exception like Internet Explorer. There is no extension for IE. So, if anybody who loves only IE , will need full Adguard App to be installed on the device. and for that you need license after 14 days of trial. If you love Firefox , then there is extension available, and no need to install full app.

    Extensions for web browsers are free.
    Adguard application:
    * works with all browsers
    * blocks requests to dangerous sites, instead of just warning about them
    * uses less ram than adblock extensions
    * works faster than extensions
    * have parental control module
    * can block ads in Modern UI apps
    * support extensions (userscripts) and WOT (Web of Trust)
    * can filter Opera 12.17 (extension is not available for this Opera version)
    * other things I've forgotten

    ahhh thanks it is very definitive!!!

    It does appear that I will license it soon I am impressed with all the AdGuard products so will be registering!!!

    However, not really interested in "parental control" at 67 years old ... there is little that offends me that is new!!

    Name calling and disrespect of other forum members will NOT be tolerated. I'm closing this topic now.
