## How can AdGuard ad blocker protect you from online threats?
At the moment we’ve got more than 2,000,000 harmful websites on record. AdGuard can block domains known to spread malware, protecting your computer against viruses, Trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware. AdGuard really lowers the risk of virus infections and prohibits access to harmful websites to prevent potential attacks.
## Crypto-jacking protection
We did comprehensive research on crypto-jacking and, as a result, AdGuard can reliably block most of the known crypto-jackers including CoinHive. You can also add some open source filters like NoCoin which will give you an additional layer of protection.
## Why does AdGuard require permissions?
* "Access your data for all websites" and "Access browser tabs": both permissions are necessary for AdGuard to apply all kinds of cosmetic processing to the pages' content. Naive ad blocking would simply block ad servers, and leave broken elements and first-party ads on the pages. AdGuard applies special cosmetic rules to make pages look clean and tidy.
* "Access browser activity during navigation": this permission is necessary to keep track of navigation events in order to apply rules when the time is right.
