Compatibility with AdGuard Ad Blocker

AdGuard VPN has the General operating mode enabled by default, which uses its own AdGuard VPN protocol. It provides the best combination of connection speed and security. However, this operating mode does not allow AdGuard VPN and AdGuard Ad Blocker to work simultaneously. The Compatibility mode, in turn, uses the IPsec protocol, which makes it possible for the AdGuard applications to work together. If you already have AdGuard Ad Blocker when installing AdGuard VPN, this mode will turn on automatically and allow you to use our applications at the same time. If you first installed AdGuard VPN, and only then decided to try AdGuard Ad Blocker, then to use them together, follow these steps:

  1. Open AdGuard VPN for Android and select the gear icon at the bottom right of the screen.

  2. Go to "Advanced settings" and select "Operating mode".

  3. Switch the mode from to Compatibility mode with AdGuard. Done!
