AdGuard Filters

The place where ad trackers are actually blocked

AGLint status License GitHub contributors GitHub commit activity GitHub issues GitHub closed issues

This is the place where we create filters for AdGuard and other ad-blocking software, such as uBlock Origin. Each filter consists of a set of text-based rules that AdGuard apps and programs use to filter out advertisements and privacy-invasive content like banners, pop-ups, and trackers. Rules specific to a certain region (e.g., German filter, Russian filter) or serving a specific purpose (e.g., Social Media filter, Tracking Protection filter) are combined into a single list, or filter, that can be enabled or disabled all at once.

Our filters are constantly updated. This repository allows anyone to bring our attention to anything from overlooked ads to false positives, helping us refine our filters, improve them, and keep them current.

We are proud of the fact that AdGuard Filters are among the most actively developed content-blocking filter lists available, if not the most.

Suggest Filtering Rules

You will find a lot of open issues, each one referencing a problem with some website — a missed ad, a false positive etc. — choose any one and suggest your own rules in comments. AdGuard filter engineers will review your suggestions, and if they find them correct, your rules will be added to AdGuard filters.

Here is the official documentation on AdGuard filtering rules syntax. You'll need to read it before you'll be able to create your own filtering rules.
