What is Adguard?
Adguard is one of the most trusted Ads blocker program in the cybersecurity industry. This is a must-have PC & MacOS utility, and everyone should own. Adguard is available in two versions, 1. Free version (with limited features) and 2. Premium version (with no limitations).
I have been using this utility for quite a long time, and i love this program. It blocks all the annoying ads that could have consumed more of internet data as well as not so required annoying popups.
More details on Adguard Premium:
Adguard Premium version offers a premium quality adblocker service, which can be enabled or disabled manually and it provides “automatic language-specific adblocker filters” activation, which switches the language-specific-filters appropriately to the websites you visit. You can also enable or disable “do not block useful ads” setting which is helpful and turns on a special filter for unblocking ads, which may be useful to the users. A user can also edit the filter or add or remove one or more filters as well.
