    This is basically the android equivalent of Adguard. It works using android's VPN API (thought its not actually a VPN) so all traffic from your device is filtered, even non-browser data.

    It’s a good alongside to any adblocker, as it provides a feature of blocking sponsors that I don’t believe is available elsewhere

    pros, cons and recent comments

    Adguard and Netguard show as alternatives to each other but I don't think they can be alternatives to each other in an almost exact way. Netguard networks your traffic, it's a firewall; I use adguard as an adblocker mostly by using it from private dns. They can be quite similar in some ways but I use them both for their special roles.
