AdGuard DNS profiles for iOS 14 (and above)

AdGuard made available a great new service, leveraging a new feature from iOS 14. The only place I have seen it mentioned is in their blog. Since I think few people would be aware of it, I though it would be useful to post the details here. The instruction are take from AdGuard blog: https://adguard.com/en/blog/encrypted-dns-ios-14.html

Step 1 — setting up a profile

Simply open this page in Safari on your iOS device and follow one of the links below:

AdGuard DNS profile — blocks adstrackingmalicious and phishing websites.

AdGuard DNS Family protection profile — same as AdGuard DNS + blocks adult websites, enforces “Safe search” in search engines and YouTube Kids mode(!).

AdGuard DNS Non-filtering profile — doesn’t block or censor anything. Use it if you just need a fast and zero logging DNS service.

Step 2 — download and install

After you download a profile, go to Settings. You’ll see there a Profiles downloaded item. Tap on it, check if everything’s right with profile data, and the install.

Step 3 — configuration and testing

You can manage installed DNS profiles via your device’s settings. Go to Settings -> General -> VPN & Network -> DNS. There you will find all installed DNS servers and will be able to jump from one to another.

To test if the configuration works correctly, follow this link to the AdGuard test page and check that AdGuard DNS is detected.

The difference compared to AdGuard app

Compared to AdGuard app, there is a couple of significant drawbacks: you won’t be able to see which requests exactly do apps on your device send. It will also be impossible to use DNS filtering and manually manage which servers to block and which to allow access to.

Keep in mind that if you use either AdGuard VPN or AdGuard ad blocker app, the DNS server selected there will get preference.

How to configure it for AdGuard DNS

It includes several steps:

Step 1 — setting up a profile

The very first step is to set up an AdGuard DNS profile.

We provide profiles for all configurations of AdGuard DNS. Notice that it is possible to set up all three and switch between them.

Simply open this page in Safari on your iOS device and follow one of the links below:

  1. AdGuard DNS profile — blocks ads, tracking, malicious and phishing websites.
  2. AdGuard DNS Family protection profile — same as AdGuard DNS + blocks adult websites, enforces “Safe search” in search engines and YouTube Kids mode(!).
  3. AdGuard DNS Non-filtering profile — doesn’t block or censor anything. Use it if you just need a fast and zero logging DNS service.

Step 2 — download and install

After you download a profile, go to Settings. You’ll see there a Profiles downloaded item:

Tap on it, check if everything’s right with profile data, and the install:

Step 3 — configuration and testing

You can manage installed DNS profiles via your device’s settings. Go to Settings -> General -> VPN & Network -> DNS. There you will find all installed DNS servers and will be able to jump from one to another.

To test if the configuration works correctly, follow this link to the AdGuard test page and check that AdGuard DNS is detected.
