    I just installed Adguard on my Nextbit Robin, and one of it's key features is the cloud integration. This was being blocked by Adguard by default, so it got me wondering.

    I just manually disabled AdGuard filtering for the Nextbit system apps, but if someone else installs it on a Robin they will have the exact same issues.
    Would it be possible to add a feature that will allowed me to cherry-pick which exact config options I used for this, export those, and then other users can download it and patch it over their current config?

    This way it would only overwrite stuff that is required, and it would be possible to have recommend config patches for certain devices (In my case it could recommend the patch that whitelists the Nextbit apps), but also for certain apps that don't work out of the box by default (I've heard YouTube can act really nasty).

    Sorry for the late reply!

    If it is caused by ad blocking, the easiest way would be to examine the filtering log and find what's blocking it.
    If the cause is VPN API itself, we may need to include Nextbit system apps in the default exceptions list.

    I whitelisted all requests in the filtering log and it didn't work.
    If you need their packages or something to whitelist them by default, they are all on the Play store if you search "Nextbit".

    Is it easy to narrow it down to a specific app responsible for the cloud sync features?

    So is it enough to disable AG for it in the apps management settings? If you confirm it's enough, we'll make it disabled by default.

    Yes that's what I did to fix it. Also, Nextbit services might be involved too. I just disabled AG for all Nextbit apps since they don't have ads anyway.

    They might be still tracking you, so we'd better have the minimum number of apps excluded.

    Could you please check what happens if you enable filtering for Nextbit Services back?

    Nextbit services works fine while filtered, just whitelist Nextbit Smart Services please :)
