Adguard Premium provides you with a reliable and manageable protection that immediately and without your participation filters the loading web pages. Adguard Premium removes all the annoying ads, blocks loading of dangerous websites, and will not allow anyone to track your activities on the Internet.
Adguard Premium uses local VPN technology to filter traffic without ROOT privileges. This means that VPN server is embedded right in your device so there is no need in additional remote connections. After running the app, it immediately starts to filter all your Internet bandwidth quietly and quickly.
When processing a web page, Adguard Premium does several things at once:
Removes ads and online tracking code directly from the page.
Checks a page against our database of phishing and malicious sites.
Checks apps downloaded from unknown sources.
[Added] Support for Extended CSS and Extended Selectors
Extended CSS support is a very important addition in terms of future (and present) possibilities that it opens for ad blocking. Extended CSS is a module for applying CSS styles with extended selection properties. Basically, it means that we will be able to select and, therefore, block some elements that we would not be able to block otherwise. Currently we support following pseudo-classes: -ext-has ( :has ), -ext-contains ( :contains ), -ext-matches-css ( :matches-css ).
‘Extended selector’ is a technical term, but what hides behind it? With extended selectors support, we can much more easily create some rules that were very, very hard to create earlier. Notably, this concerns rules required to block such things as ‘Sponsored posts’ on Facebook.
