Cloudflare is launching its own consumer DNS service on April Fools’ Day, that promises to speed up your internet connection and help keep it private. Cloudflare claims it will be “the Internet’s fastest, privacy-first consumer DNS service.” While OpenDNS and Google DNS both exist, Cloudflare is focusing heavily on the privacy aspect of its own DNS service with a promises to wipe all the logs of DNS queries within 24 hours.
DNS services are typically provided by internet service providers to resolve a domain name into a real IP address that routers and switches understand. It’s an essential part of the internet, but DNS servers provided by ISPs are often slow and unreliable. ISPs or any Wi-Fi network you connect to can also use DNS servers to identify all sites that are visited, which presents privacy problems.
How to use it?
changing the DNS servers on Android phone itself, but you need to change IP settings from DHCP to Static. It may not work on every phone, but it is pretty simple.
– Enable Wi-Fi and open Wi-Fi settings, long press your router and select “Modify Network”
– Tap “Advanced Options”, scroll down and change IP settings from DHCP to Static.
– For DNS 1, set the value to 184.108.40.206 and for DNS 2 set the value to 220.127.116.11
– Save the settings.
