Hello, I'm installing the new version of edge chromium and when searching among the extensions in the microsoft store I found adguard:

when installed, it offers adguard vpn for chrome:

Which redirects to this extension:

Link to the extension:
Code:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adguard-vpn-%E2%80%94-privacy-sec/hhdobjgopfphlmjbmnpglhfcgppchgje
I couldn't find any info quickly in google, is this a legit extension? I didn't install it

The VPN is still in alpha / beta, they mention this in the description. So it is too early to say if it is any good. Nevertheless, all Adguard products so far are legit ang of high quality. I've been using the adblocker (windows app, android app and the browser extension) for years.

Just hope the android version can integrate the VPN into Adguard as one so solve the problem of only 1 VPN allowed on android at any one time. Well.....also hope that it's not powered by one of those non-privacy focused VPNs like Hotspot Shield VPN used by Kaspersky

Another advantage that we can offer to our users is that AdGuard VPN, unsurprisingly, will be able to work alongside the AdGuard mobile ad blocking apps. The struggle is familiar to any Android or iOS AdGuard user. To properly block ads on those platforms a local VPN is required; on Android you can't use two VPNs at the same time at all, on iOS not any two VPNs will work together. With AdGuard VPN, this will shortly become an ex-problem.

I've been giving this a try on this PC, seems OK but the only thing behind the VPN is your browser, worryingly IPX.AC shows my ISP as Google (I've moved in with the devil himself) Very fast though, & seems to offer some privacy. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Does it has a built in Kill Switch? How about server selection? What protocols are available like Wireguard, iKEv2 etc? Encryption is 256 or 512 bit AES?

Thanks

@Arequire I have it installed at the moment and it doesn't have an option to choose the protocol.
I'd be interested in reading about the custom protocol that AdGuard VPN uses. The only info I could find was:
7) AdGuard protocol. The crucial thing about our own protocol is that it cannot be distinguished from browsing. It looks just like HTTPS traffic — that’s why it’s very hard to block or simply to detect it. And on top of that, it is swift and is based on powerful mechanisms of the HTTP/2 protocol.
