As many of you probably know, AdGuard provides a lot of ways to block ads in form of various apps and browser extensions. And today we are announcing the official release of a completely new product — AdGuard Homewhich carries a lot of cool new stuff with it. Its purpose is to let you control your entire network and all your devices, and it does not require using a client-side program. At the same, AdGuard Home features a web interface to easily manage the filtering process. For the first time, we offered a way to block ads without having to install anything on your device, like a browser extension or an app. And while AdGuard Home is a standalone project, it took a lot from its spiritual predecessor. In fact, we should probably "thank" Apple for speeding up the development of AdGuard Home. When Apple decided that you couldn't control the traffic on your own devices anymore, we sought ways to put users back in charge of their own gadgets. Naturally, the DNS approach looked the most promising. It's too bad Apple won't allow apps that manage DNS requests anywhere near the AppStore — well, what if you didn't need any apps? And this is the main strength of AdGuard Home: you can set it up anywhere, but I'm getting ahead of myself. That is why we are calling this version of AdGuard Home "v0. One of the main reasons is that the installation of AdGuard Home is currently not the easiest task for an unprepared user, simplifying it is one of the highest priority tasks as we move forward. Don't get me wrong, it works perfectly fine in its current state, there's just even more we want to add — and we will, in the official v1. It is probably not news to you that ads and trackers follow you on the web wherever you go, not only on your computer, but also on your smartphone in fact, probably even more on your smartphone! Even if you have nothing against companies gathering data about you, tracking can be plain dangerous. Ads are no better — they have long become a gateway to all kinds of malware, viruses, crypto lockers, phishing and more trackers. Given how densely we are surrounded by gadgets in our life, it can get really tiresome to find, install, configure and maintain an ad blocker app for each of them, and, as I've mentioned already, in case of "smart furniture" this is not possible at all. This is where AdGuard Home comes into play — and shines. It provides a unified solution for blocking ads and trackers on all devices within your network, most commonly your home Wi-Fi network, but nothing prevents you from setting it up in your workspace or anywhere else. AdGuard Home Dashboard Let's have a look at the main tab. Here you will find all kinds of statistics, including a vivid graphical representation. As you probably noticed, it looks just like a normal app, but you only need it alone to manage filtering on all your devices within the network. Unlike application-based solutions for Android and iOS, AdGuard Home is not dependent on media giants like Google and Apple and their countless artificial limitations. Your personal preference is the only deciding factor. Now let's go to the "Settings" tab and look more closely at each of the options offered. Manage filtering process Ad blocking The name speaks for itself. This is the main module, keep it enabled if you want AdGuard Home to block ads and tracking in your network — and it will block a lot. Just look at this comparison:. Ads are gone now And this is not just aesthetics, look at the amount of saved traffic and load speed:.
