Blocks Ads Without Root
Adguard provides you with a reliable and manageable protection that immediately and without your participation filters the loading web pages. Adguard removes all the annoying ads, blocks loading of dangerous websites, and will not allow anyone to track your activities on the Internet.
When processing a web page, Adguard does several things at once:
1. Removes ads and online tracking code directly from the page.
2. Checks a page against our database of phishing and malicious sites.
3. Checks apps downloaded from unknown sources.
We are approaching the v2.10 release by creating this release candidate. Hopefully, it will be the last as well, but should any unnoticed bugs surface, another one will follow it. Anyway, here the major addition is the Battery usage stats screen. What it is, and why it was added is described right below. Aside from that, several minor UI changes and improvements to app’s stability.
Historically, questions about AdGuard battery usage are among the most frequently asked ones. Sadly, Android distorts the battery consumption breakdown, attributing other apps’ traffic and battery consumption to AdGuard. We’ve even written a detailed knowledgebase article that explains this issue.
To mitigate the misconception, we added a new screen called ‘Battery usage’. You can access it by tapping on the battery icon in the top right corner of the main screen.
AdGuard battery usage
Inside you will find a chart that shows the AdGuard battery resourse consumption within the last 24 hours, with an option to get more detailed hour-to-hour data by tapping on the dots on the chart. Besides that, there’s also a numeric breakdown of the relevant data and a short technical explanation.
