    Do you use premium version or free? The problem may be that Amazon Silk is not in the browsers list yet, so Adguard considers it an app, not a web browser (apps are not filtered in free version)

    We will add Amazon Silk to the browsers list in the next update. For now the only way to filter it is using premium or trial.

    Thanks! I didn't realize that I could check the trial version too! Silly me.

    Adguard for ANdroid makes downloading stuff from Googleplay slow, or unresponsive. I had to disable it.

    Any clue as to a work around?

    I have installed Inoreader and it freezes sometimes. I disabled filtering of applications and it seems better but not perfect. So I disabled the whole adguard and the issue is gone.

    Edit: I have restarted tablet and it looks fine. Will keep eyes for a while.

    Next to the above... Inoreader has its inbuilt browser which is not filtered by adguard.

    Do you use VPN mode? What's your network speed?

    Do you have "Filter apps traffic" option enabled or not?

    Maybe it uses HTTPS?

    It's an answer why there is no filtering. We can't do full https filtering and the limited one is not enough.

    Pity. Hope one day Adguard will bring this filtering.

    They can block https sites on per domain basis but filtering https contents is technically impossible on unrooted Android. For this purpose, you have to use addon but currently only firefox support such addon AFAIK.

    Thanks for explanation. :) I don't root and jailbreak my devices.

    Well, it (filtering https contents) might be possible in proxy mode if you (and Adgurad) don't care to manually add certificate. But even if it could, still I don't want Adguard to do this cuz it has potential security risk.
    But as they say "limited", at least some ads or nasty can be filtered by domain level filtering, and for http sites all filter should work. If not, there must be some problem.

    We have just released a new version of Adguard for Android.
    Better, faster and stronger.

    Changelog for 1.1.887:
    * Improved HTTPS filtering, now we can block ads in Skype
    * Optimized program performance
    * If the protection is disabled, Adguard service now turns off correctly after processing the network events
    * Improved filtering speed of heavy HTML pages
    * Fixed an issue with Android 4 killing Adguard after swiping task from recent
    * Fixed a bug with service autostart in case of wrong events order (if we receive network event first, then boot event)
    * We now use better way to exclude some apps from VPN on Lollipop
    * Fixed an issue with Adguard performance on Android 4.3 SGS3
    * Optimized memory consumption upon loading heavy files
    * Fixed some minor compatibility issues

    In a day or two we will release new beta version of Adguard 1.2 (the one with Firewall).
    Btw, we are still looking for beta testers.

    If you like to get updates first (and to use buggy software:)) we'll be happy to accept you:

    I'm interested in beta testing 1.2, is there any update on when this will be available? The latest beta version I can find is1.1.887 which is the same version as the latest stable release.

    As always I was wrong with the deadline:(

    It is almost ready, some bugs with firewall traffic statistics left. We will fix them tomorrow and beta is ready.
