    Go into settings, sounds and notifications, apps, and find that app from the list.
    Choose hide notifications

    All notifications are already blocked from this app. Thanks !
    I actually found a way I just press the VPN status button and set the Importance to "Low: No sound or visual interruption" . The key will disappear (as seen here https://imgur.com/a/bOgkufD ) but i still have this "Android System VPN is activated by Adguard" and i couldn't find how to remove this one though. Thanks !

    Swipe down on your home screen, choose that notification by long pressing it, choose the exclamation point and then choose hide notifications

    Each manufacturer builds differently, so the steps and screens I take will not match what's going on with yours.
    But basically I swipe down, choose the exclamation point for adguard and choose hide notifications.
    Done.....
