Would that be duplicative if I am using Adguard on my Android? I have discovered that Adguard app is beginning to leak ads in many recent more popular apps like the official reddit app. According to the developers of Adguard, nothing can be done since the reddit app is like Facebook which double encrypts the stream and thus obfuscates the stream from the VPN scanners.

They both use a VPN like construction to filter your traffic.
You can only use one at the time.
