AdGuard Home stands out as a comprehensive network-wide solution for blocking unwanted ads and tracking, eliminating the need for individual client-side software. This potent tool converts your entire home network into a fortress of privacy by acting as a DNS server that redirects tracking domains to a 'black hole'. This prevents any device in your network from accessing these servers, mirroring the technology used in our popular public AdGuard DNS servers.

AdGuard Home | Network-wide software for any OS: Windows, macOS, Linux
AdGuard Home is a network-wide software for blocking ads & tracking. After you set it up, it’ll cover ALL your home devices, and you don’t need any client-side software for that.


The software offers an array of impressive features designed to give you control and peace of mind. AdGuard Home excels in its ability to block ads and trackers while allowing customization of blocklists tailored to your needs. It also functions as a built-in DHCP server with HTTPS for secure Admin interfacing. Notably, it supports encrypted DNS upstream servers (DNS-over-HTTPS, DNS-over-TLS, DNSCrypt), enhancing secure web browsing across platforms.

As well as providing robust ad-blocking capabilities, AdGuard Home offers potent security measures including blocking phishing and malware domains. Its parental control feature helps create a safe online environment by blocking adult content domains. The software also forces safe search on search engines ensuring safer browsing experiences. Furthermore, it offers per-client (device) configuration and access settings, allowing you to decide who can use AGH DNS within your network.

With no link to a GitHub repository in our database, it is hard to estimate the project viability.
