Adguard Web Filter Editor's Review

Nowadays, it is literally not possible to carry on with daily activities and work without using the Internet and that is true for people belonging to all segments of society. However, with technological progress the form of web has also become more engrossing and complex with time. In place of static images and webpages, you get dynamic and interactive websites that contain plethora of media elements. While you may customize appearance of web browser and set parameters for page rendering, you cannot do much about annoying pop up ads and banners. Unwanted ads clog pages of various websites nowadays and even your antivirus software cannot block all of them in real world scenario. However, you can use specific applications developed to banish these irritating ads from web pages you browse. One such instance is Adguard Web Filter.

When you use this feature rich ad blocker, you get a number of benefits. Based on your specified settings, it can block annoying ads that clutter web pages. In the process, you can also save on precious internet bandwidth. Pages will load quickly and you will spend less time closing the unwanted banners and ads. You may be unaware but some of these ads also serve as gateway to malware sites. The app can cater to suit of various types of users but those with slower connections will benefit the most. When you configure and use the app properly, you get smooth and faster web browsing experience.

Installing the multilingual app is simple and you may try it out for a brief period before paying licensing fee too. If you are happy with its performance opt for either 1 year or lifetime license. The app footprint is small and it supports Windows XP and subsequent versions. You may set up an Adguard account but it is not mandatory.

One plus point of using Adguard Web Filter is that it supports and integrates with nearly all web browsers. It supports popular browsers like Chrome, IE, Safari and lesser known ones like Avant. The software comes with a basic interface for beginners but advanced users can find their way through settings and tweak it to a large extent. The main components are displayed as buttons at left side of interface. Clacking on each module opens options at the right hand window of the interface. The Browsing Security and Ad Blocker can be tweaked individually. You can also add exceptions.

You get settings for filtering malicious and phishing sites. The app offers anti-tracking feature which is also found in many present generation browsers. The app also shows detailed data on blocked sites and traffic. You can specify filters for blocking sites with specific language content. The feature Adguard Assistant helps users remove content like banners and pictures from web pages. One nice thing is that all tweaks and exceptions made to one web browser become applicable for other installed browsers too. This is a huge time saver. Adguard Web Filter also offers extensive network configuration options. All changes can be undone by resorting to default settings.It is prudent that you read the how to guides before using the app or you may get confused with so many settings.

The app, once configured, needs minimal intervention from user end to execute assigned tasks. You may set it to run at Windows startup. It can check for program updates periodically as well. While it performs a nice job of blocking phishing sites ad thwarts annoying ads, it is not exactly a replacement of your system security application. On the contrary, it can act as a supplement to antivirus suite.
