Let’s skip a long introduction and get right to the point — we are happy to release AdGuard VPN v1.1 for Windows. It took us several months to fix bugs that were interfering with the application, identify the causes of glitches and update the VPN client. But the time of hard work is over (not for long, of course), and AdGuard VPN v1.1 for Windows is finally ready to pleasantly surprise you with stable work and few important improvements.

QUIC and stable connection
We are proud to announce that we've implemented QUIC support — a feat that not many other VPN providers can brag about. Just to remind you: QUIC is a cutting-edge network protocol which provides better speed and encryption in comparison to common TCP. How does it work? Omitting the details, with TCP packets of data get transmitted in batches. And if one batch gets lost, the rest have to wait. And QUIC implementation allows data to get processed without any specific order. What does it mean for you? A stable connection in non-perfect conditions, for example, while using mobile internet or weak public Wi-Fi. If you want to dig deeper into the topic — run through this article about QUIC protocol.

Easy work with exclusions
We've made it easier to search for apps to add them to exclusions, by moving this function to the main settings section. In previous version to exclude apps from tunneling you had to be an advanced user and be able to choose a path to the app — not to mention it was tedious and time-consuming. Now it has become much more user friendly!
Just go to Settings and choose Split tunneling.
Press Add application.
And finally select an app from the list to add it to exclusions. By the way, it is still possible to choose a path to the app by clicking the Browse button.
And that's it! You've successfully added the app to the exclusions list.

I don't know the speeds of this protocol in comparison with Hydraprotocol and wireguard. For me, these two are the fastest, and I am only interested in VPNs with these two protocols.

AdGuard VPN protocol​


Some VPNs are too easy to detect which makes them vulnerable and unreliable. We took a long time to develop and deliberate over our own solution. The result was AdGuard VPN protocol, perfect for uncompromised security. It disguises itself as normal traffic, so it is much more difficult to track and block it.

Very fast on my side. The problem is that the pings of the server vary a lot. What I really like about AdGuard VPN is that it doesn't seem to install any adapters as it only uses its own protocol. Simple VPN without any unnecessary bloat. (y)

I really doubt the speed of it, wireguard in a 500MB connection give a real speed of 400MB. It has to be an adapter to encrypt the communication between the computer and the server.
