hi guys, we are here on adguard home for all our local devices and on adguard for ios for our smart devices...

it all works out great except for startpage.com! it looks like we are just unable to get rid of these annoying search ads on top of all search results:-(( so, are there any recommendations for filters to use? any help much appreciated! +++

Those ads require element hiding which only a locally installed app can hide.
Base and mobile filter are required (last one only for mobile devices). Unblocking filter must be disabled.
I just checked the site on Android and no ads shown with the filter lists I mentioned.

AdGuard Home, like DNS/HOSTS ad blocking, can only block domains. It can't do cosmetic filtering.

hm, for mobile: are there any differences in filter options between adguard for android and ios? i checked all available options (except for language specific ones) and ads still show (safari, built-in blocking enginge disabled)

Which filter is enabled in "Andere Filter"? If it is an unblocking one, please disable that one.
Please note it is also advised to check the AA button in address bar for a warning/error for AdGuard and enable it for every website there.

Tried on my iPhone and the ad is not shown when I search for wien like in your screenshot.
could you please try turning off safari built-in "content blockers" from within AA and reload? will it still show no ads?

nevertheless: i'll fill the report - many thanks!

Those are required (Safari content blocker -> AdGuard enabled there), the one in Extension is for advanced protection.
