    Dear users!

    We want to inform you about redesign of our licensing policy. Briefly:

    • Added new type of license – “Mobile”, it is cheaper, but only meant for Android version.
    • Parental Control is now available in “Standard” license (all you need to do is to upgrade to version 5.10.2010).
    • Premium license now fits for two devices at the same time: 1 Android device and 1 computer (PC or Mac).

    More details can be found in our blog.

    Hi,

    I bought a lifetime standard license just over a year ago. I like the new combined Windows & Android premium license. Would it be possible for me to upgrade my lifetime standard to a lifetime premium license and if so, how do I achieve this?

    TIA

    Hi! That's absolutely possible. You have to go to this page: https://adguard.com/en/license.html#prolongate and enter your license key you want to upgrade.

    Just had an email about this, well 12 hours ago now and wanted to say thanks for the mobile license =)

    I thought i would also let you know that the email was marked as spam on gmail, but maybe i have my settings set high or something? I dunno.

    I can say for myself that I too use gmail, received that email and it wasn't marked as spam. Must be some settings or history consideration, or something, on your side indeed.

    Yeh i just marked it as not spam, i believe then all future emails should be allowed though now but thought i would make the adguard staff aware about it being marked.

    Thank you for your awareness, but with gmail its really not so rare that various mails go to spam folder. Of course it is bad that this happens, but not too bad.

    If you buy a lifetime license you should get all future updates of adguard.

    Correct, having a lifetime license entitles you to all future upgrades to major versions.

    I'm a little confused as to the "Premium" license offered. I'm new to Adguard, and I'm only using it on Android. During the first setup it asked to start the 7 day trial, and I also selected to block ads in all apps, not just the browser. After it was done setting up I see there is an option to "Get Premium", so what does that mean? Am I on a 7 day Premium trial, or just a regular tial? On the license page I can buy an Android only license, and that's what I want, but I don't want to miss out on the full blocking in apps too. Will just buying the Android version give me that ability, or do I have to buy the Premium license even though I don't use it on a PC/Mac?

    So to sum it up: I only use Adguard on Android, and I want to block ads in apps and the browsers. Will the Android only license do that?

    If you've started the 7 day trial, it'll be for the Premium license. It'll also leave the little nags about getting a Premium license until a Premium license is purchased during the trial just in case you're interested.

    Just purchasing a Android-only license will give you a Premium license on Android.

    Yup. :)

    Small clarification: there is no such thing as 'Premium license for Android'. Premium license means 'a license for PC/Mac AND for Android'. No additional functions, just Android+computer.
