AdGuard DNS is a foolproof way to block Internet ads that does not require installing any applications. It is easy to use, absolutely free, easily set up on any device, and provides you with minimal necessary functions to block ads, counters, malicious websites, and adult content.

To start using AdGuard DNS, set up the addresses of Domain Name System (DNS) instead of those given by your service provider. AdGuard DNS is free of charge for personal use.

When you use AdGuard DNS, every time a website sends an ad request our server sends back an empty response. AdGuard has its own base of domain names that send ads, and it is regularly updated. We offer two modes for AdGuard DNS to work in. The Default Mode includes blocking ads, counters, malicious and phishing websites. The Family Mode does the same, in addition blocking adult content and enabling safe search for your browser.

AdGuard DNS can work on any devices, including smartphones and tablet PCs. There are no equipment limitations.

Advantages of AdGuard DNS

  • Does not require installation of any applications. All you need is to follow this simple setup guide.

  • AdGuard DNS is absolutely free in personal use. You don’t install anything, so there’s nothing to pay for.

  • It has two modes: default ad blocking and Family Mode.

  • We do not preserve any personal data or log your activity. Your anonymity will be maintained.

  • You can use it on any Windows, macOS, Android, or iOS operated device.

AdGuard Home

AdGuard Home is a free, open source network-wide software for blocking ads & tracking. It's similar to AdGuard DNS, as it has the same blocking principle behind it. After you set it up, it'll cover ALL your home devices, and you don't need any client-side software for that.

Running your own AdGuard Home server allows you to do much more than using a public DNS server:

  • Choose what exactly will the server block or not block;
  • Monitor your network activity;
  • Add your own custom filtering rules;
  • In the future, AdGuard Home is supposed to become more than just a DNS server.

It is considerably more difficult to set up, though, and will require some basic knowledge about administrating a network.
