    Thanks for telling me to use proxy mode. AFAndroid blocks a lot of stuff on my phone now.

    You'll be able to switch to proxy mode then.

    Pros:
    1. Less heavy on the battery
    2. You can use AG along with some third-party VPN service

    Cons:
    1. AG firewall is limited to HTTP and HTTPS traffic
     
  3. guest

    guest Guest

    Ok thanks, i will check about it

    What exactly does the firewall do when you block wifi and mobile for a App. I turned them off in twitter as a test to see what would happen. I was still able to use twitter as before.

    The firewall lets me see how many ads were blocked for each app. In the last 24 hours 347 ads were blocked just from my yahoo sports app. 24 ads were blocked from the cm security a/v app in the last 24 hours.

    For some reason, when I remove this app, my bandwidth is reduced significantly, can't break 50kb/s. Post-reinstall, full throttle bandwidth returns!

    I am having problems with Adguard not auto starting. On boot up the trust screen flashes on and off then dissappears. It then has to be manually started.

    It seems the Adguard does not trust itself.

    Is there a cure for this please.

    This is because the YouTube uses HTTPS to deliver the ads, which isn't supported in Adguard for Android yet. However they're working on HTTPS filtering right now.

    Thanks I will give that a go.

    In the meantime there is another problem.

    I have noticed connection problems on my PC and ran RouterStats to check it. When running Adguard mobile there are regular dropped connections as shown in the image. As soon as I disable AG the dropouts cease.

    Will try the latest to see if it improves.

    Yes, give it a try and you will see how it goes. If any of your issues persist, please call attention of @avatar (AG developer)

    If the issue persists it would be better if you send us logs.

    Next time when issue happens:
    1. Go to "Menu" - "Send Feedback"
    2. Send the message with logs attached
    3. Post here the ticket ID (you'll get it in an autoreply email)

    Do you see there which exact connections are being dropped? At least the IP addresses?

    I am using now ver 2.1.356. The flashing has stopped with this one but it will not autostart and does not trust itself to run. I have sent you the log.

    On the second item that might have been down to me. I have read that the Samsung S4 works better with a fixed IP on Wifi. Having set that solved the disconnections.

    We've just released second patch for Adguard 2.1:
    https://github.com/AdguardTeam/AdguardForAndroid/releases/tag/v2.1.359

    Changelog
    Ad blocking

    [Added] Added popular filter subscriptions: #210

    List of added filter subscriptions:
    * ABPindo
    * EasyList China
    * EasyList Czech and Slovak
    * EasyList Hebrew
    * EasyList Italy
    * Liste AR
    * Liste FR
    * ABP Japanese Filters
    * Adblock polskie reguły

    [Added] $generichide modifier support: #64
    [Added] $genericblock modifier support: #63
    [Changed] Use keyboard settings to detect default language-specific filters: #100
    [Changed] Improved $popup rules: #207
    [Fixed] A bug with HTML filtering rules - void elements never removed: #214
    [Fixed] An issue with "base url": #212
    [Fixed] Rules with $elemhide modifier now applied to "Documents" only: #181

    UI changes

    [Added] New "Notification Icon" setting option: "Notification without icon": #222

    So now we now have 4 options:
    1. Default icon. Icon and notification are always visible.
    2. Colored icon (only in Android 4.X). Icon and notification are always visible.
    3. Notification without icon. Icon is not visible. Permanent notification is visible, but it has low priority, so it is semi-transparent and placed below all other notifications.
    4 None. No icon, no notification.

    [Changed] Make "Protection paused" a permanent notification: #231

    This change should help with #223. When Adguard pauses protection, sometimes Android may kill it's process and then do not bring it back.

    [Changed] Add a description text for each filter: #219
    [Changed] Change Mb to MB in firewall data statistics: #240
    [Changed] "Protection paused" notification should not have high priority in Android 4.X: #235

    Browsing Security

    [Changed] Changed the way Adguard checks domain: #162

    VPN

    [Changed] Adguard now checks if IP address is reachable before redirecting connection to a proxy: #217
    [Fixed] Crash when system call is interrupted: #180
    [Fixed] "Filter DNS requests" feature does not work with mobile connection: #191

    We have improved "Filter DNS requests" feature, now it is much more reliable and works for both Wi-Fi and Mobile connection. This feature may drastically improve the battery usage, so I recommend trying it.

    Languages and translations

    [Added] Swedish language: #158
    [Added] Estonian language: #157

    Compatibility issues

    [Changed] Add Link Bubble Browser to the browsers list: #227
    [Fixed] Tethering/hotspot is falsely detected (MIUI, Zenfone2): #138
    [Fixed] Fixed an issue with filtering Boat Browser and Dolphin Browser with add-ons installed: #187
    [Fixed] Viber app compatiblity issues: #170
    [Fixed] Added Firefox Nightly to the browsers list: #206
    [Fixed] Added RT Software Studio's Download Manager to the browsers list: #199
    [Fixed] Added Yandex Browser Alpha to the browsers list: #198
    [Fixed] Periscope app incompatibility: #195
    [Fixed] Add sberbank app to net exclusions: #169

    Minor issues

    [Changed] Compress request body when sending request to support: #216
    [Changed] Improve release notes layout: #230
    [Fixed] Add sberbank app to net exclusions: #169
    [Fixed] Adguard breaks WebSocket protocol: #248
    [Fixed] Adguard requests to a backend server has wrong User-Agent field: #161
    [Fixed] Always return status=500 for blocked requests: #236
    [Fixed] BOOT_COMPLETED Intent is not received at “Restart” or “Reboot”: #183
    [Fixed] Critical Error: Deadlock caused by slow write operations #238

    [Fixed] Foreground check does not work in Android 5.1.1+: #244
    [Fixed] Random timeout error while downloading large files: #255
    [Fixed] T-Mobile Wi-Fi calling issue: #233
    [Fixed] UDP connection may be closed before it is actually established: #175

    Oh you have Android 4, it explains everything. There is a bug in Android 4.X, it forgets about trusted apps after reboot so we have to show the VPN trust dialog every time. Fixed since Lollipop.

    I just updated and it looks like i cannot change the icon and have no options. Something about the OS will determine how the icon is displayed.
