Filter ads on iOS with AdGuard


AdGuard, a content blocker for multiple platforms, is an effective solution for blocking ads on iOS such as the iPhone or iPad.

Quick Install:

  • Install AdGuard from the App Store.
  • Enable blocking: Settings -> Safari -> Content Blockers, enable all filters.


Search for adguard in the App Store and install:

install adguard

Open the app to validate AdGuard is enabled. The screen may look different, this is the premium version of AdGuard:

adguard enabled

Filtering is enabled at this point, there is no need to go any farther. The next steps enable additional filtering options.

Enter Safari settings (Settings -> Safari -> Content Blockers):

safari settings

Enable filtering in Safari. By default privacy and security are enabled, I recommend enabling all filters:

safari settings adguard
