    Hi,

    as the topic says: Which features/modules 'phone home' and do submit my surfing habits?
    I already disabled that WOT-thing ("Inform about website reputation"), what else is sending the URLs or domains I visit off site?


    Thank you.

    1st off: Thank you. Unfortunately you did not understand my intention/questions:

    I already said it in another thread: "luckily (only in this matter) I do know AdGuard just a few days, so it cannot be sth about/against them".
    A privacy statement is no more than a single statement. It can be full of lies. Neither you nor me will ever be able to sue a liar.

    In this case the only way to be sure is to use Wireshark and see what requests Adguard sends to our servers.

    I did so when installing the PROMO version.
    LOADS of network traffic (but no +1 in my account...(which is OK so far as I just checked out the PROMO vs. really recommending it. Nevertheless a recommendation wouldn't have counted too :I))
