    is it viable to use the real identity information of website of HTTPS connection when maintaining filtering?

    this is quite alarming when the HTTPS page has a mixed content and when using banking website, as we don't know who verified it and sometimes malware or virus might steal information.

    Unfortunately, this is the only way to filter https.

    We check that certificate is valid though. So if your browser shows that identity is verified - you can be sure that the site is ok.

    But if you want to be 100% sure and see the real certificate issuer - the only way is to disable https filtration.

    i see, so that's it... if adguard is checking the certificate valid or not then that's good.

    Maybe it's something that can be logged within the program itself?

    Yes, we can log it.
    I suggest to write it to Adguard's log (Settings->Log).

    This is not "stripping" -- I think the problem is in Assistant's code which loads some content from unsecured urls.
    Have you checked extensions updates?
