Description (last modified by fhd)


So far, we assumed it wasn't possible to run a local VPN on Android. However, AdGuard seems to be doing just that. We should definitely investigate this, since this would allow us to block ads over all connections and to configure it all automatically.

What to change

At first we should investigate what we need to do to support this, and whether there are any downsides compared to the local HTTP proxy.

Removed the instructions from the description: It's not the right place for this, the process should be clearer than that. And we still don't agree on how it should work anyway.
