What is SmartGuard? Block Ads Trackers and Malware

SmartGuard is a comprehensive online security tool designed to block intrusive ads, trackers, and malicious websites that can compromise your privacy and steal your information.

How Does SmartGuard Work?

SmartGuard is a modern DNS filter to protect you online. DNS is a system that converts IP addresses to readable domains for people to use, like hide.me!

As you access websites, SmartGuard analyses the DNS requests and cross-references them against its vast database of known malicious websites and ad/tracker domains. If a match is found, the request is blocked, preventing the associated threats from reaching your device.

Why not just use a browser ad-blocking extension?

Ad-blocking extensions are not quite as flexible as their solution but they are a good companion to SmartGuard. Whilst the extension may protect your browser, SmartGuard protects your whole device.

This means that no app can circumvent the blocking as long as you are connected to one of their servers.

Will SmartGuard impact my security and privacy?

hide.me stores no logs of the websites you visit, keeping your privacy intact. From a security perspective, the proactive approach from SmartGuard only serves to enhance your security by exposing you to less malicious content. And with their useful statistics, you’ll be able to visualize just how much SmarGuard is shielding you from.
