I never understood the benefit of AdGuard over free alternatives.
  • On android, there are several free and/or non-sub ad-blockers that use the same VPN sink method that AdGuard uses (NetGuard and Block This! for example; I prefer the latter since it blocks via DNS and it updates lists automatically)
    • you can also use third party browsers with ad-block like Samsung Internet or Opera or Brave
    • and if you're rooted, you can even change the hosts file
  • On computers, you can use ad-blockers on Chrome or pretty much any browser via extensions
    • with some know how, you can even change the hosts file if you really wanted to.

Blockada is free and I love it. I don't see a reason to pay for this.

Is there a setting in Block This! to hide the ad frames? With Block This! enabled on my phone and browsing to apkmirror.com, I stil see the dead gray space where the ad would otherwise appear.

i usually see the frames too, but sometimes it seems to be able to hide them on some websites, perhaps due to the website code to hide frames if the ad isn't able to load.

I came into this thread because I also wanted to know.

I am using the free DNS66 [f-droid.org] for ad-blocking on my Android smartphone (root is not needed) and uBlock Origin on my PC browsers.

If AdGuard or a similar software is better, please let me know. I'd happily switch.

Thanks,
Tofu Vic

Except that eBay deal is not cheaper. This is for the premium lifetime version (not the standard) for 2 computers and 2 Android devices (4 licenses total).

One of the benefits of Adguard is that it blocks ads system-wide, even in computer applications and Android apps.

Most likely because Apple, in their infinite wisdom, only allow ad-blockers to work in the browser and not system-wide. With Apple's way of doing things Adguard would offer no advantages over the free solutions available.

Try Adguard DNS to block ads at router level. I've been using it since 2016, blocks ads on all devices connected to your router: Roku (Tubi, Crackle), Smart TVs, Android, iOS (including in app ads). With Adguard DNS no apps nor extensions needed to install to block the ads.

Unfortunately, I'm not an Apple guy so I can't answer that question & I'm only repeating what I heard a couple years ago so things may have changed.

I have no connection with Adguard than being a satisfied customer of theirs for a few years.
