Adguard for Windows V7.5: DNS module and better anti-tracking protection

AdGuard for Windows systems is the first product in the AdGuard product line. We have been using and update it in countless times. Therefore, what function can we add? Actually, a lot! Soon you will also realize this. Let’s start with the most important update!

DNS module

Protect your DNS traffic

Some other AdGuard products have already shown this feature, for example, applicable to Android AdGuard. The DNS module allows you to choose the DNS server you like. Options for a variety of DNS servers:

DNS (including) can be selected in the recommended list.

Our knowledge base is columns. We collected the most popular DNS providers and added quick installation.

You can also add a custom DNS server.

Why choose a DNS server? There are several such reasons. First, use non-default DNS servers to protect your DNS traffic from the Internet service provider (ISP) and fraudulent software. Many DNS servers support a range of security protocols, including DNS-OVER-HTTPS and DNS-OVER-TLS and other protocols. We recommend choosing one of these two agreements.

Some DNS servers have additional features, such as advertising interception or protection from malicious URLs. Check the tooltips next to each DNS server for more.

Block Windows 10 tracking

This is the latest update in the invisible mode. Compared to previous versions, Windows 10 has more excellent updates, but it is also “notorious” because of its attempt to track your online activity. This even makes us feel that it is necessary to independently separate the additional parts of the stealth mode.

Useful supplement of invisible mode

“Windows Track” Here you will select four options:

Disable Windows telemetry

Close ad ID

Disable Windows Defender Automatic Sample

Disable WAP Push Message Routing Services

To display the strength of the system telemetry function, we come as an example in Microsoft Na, which is similar to Siri (Apple Smart Voice Assistant), but personal intelligence assistant developed by Microsoft. Its functional set is enabled by default, and Microsoft Xiaona will regularly transmit the user’s usage and performance data to Microsoft. These “assistants” help is very helpful, but they also collect a lot of personal data. If you are worried about privacy safety as a user (worried is not only normal, but it is necessary), we will help you easily disable telemetry.

You can prompt your other more options next to the tool tips.

Authorization through social media

Our Android APP can be used in this feature and have been well received. Therefore, we decided to add this feature to AdGuard applications for Windows.

Users who have activated AdGuard need to log in to the Adguard personal account or manually enter the license key. But now, if your AdGuard account email is the same as Google or Facebook account, you can activate AdGuard through social media. You can of course choose this feature, but more choices is always better, isn’t it? And some users will be very willing to use new features.

New Old Assistant Function

In V7.4, we introduced users to new more independent, independent, and less error. Have many excellent aspects, but,, despite this, some users suggest that we pay attention to a function of being missing in the old version – pause protection.

The Old Version Menu of the Assistant has an “Disable Protection 30 Second” option. For example, this feature helps access to websites that cannot be viewed when using an ad blocking program. Therefore, in this case, it can be paused to browse the content of the website.

But in the event of more convenient ideas, we are more farther than the last time, while adding new features called “Disable protection for 30 seconds”. This feature is exactly the same, but it is running for all websites at runtime, not only the website being browsed. This feature can be found in the Protection of the Primary Applications.

This way we have successfully ended the update summary. The only thing to do is to connect the rest of the update log, it is on.

In the comments or on, let us know more about the new version of the AdGuard for Windows. We look forward to your feedback!
