Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 DNS service is now on Android and iOS

Cloudflare

Originally unveiled for desktops on April 1 (no joke), the DNS resolver can be downloaded for free from Google Play and Apple's App Store.

If you're concerned about your government snooping on your browsing history, or simply want an easy way to access sites blocked in your part of the world, Cloudflare's got you covered with a new app for Android and iOS. The company has claimed that its DNS service is the fastest resolver out there.

"We will never log your IP address (the way other companies identify you)".

Mike Vrabel and Tennessee Titans notch a signature upset vs. Patriots
Of course, that doesn't mean other teams won't try to duplicate what the Titans did. "When you go cheap, you get your *ss kicked". It's certainly fitting, as that's a pretty Belichick-like mentality to take in a situation like that one.

Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 DNS service takes advantage of their extensive network infrastructure to perform domain name lookups extremely fast by connecting users to servers that are geographically closer to them. It is darn easy to set up.

It is the right thing to do. It's goal is to make your internet connection faster and more private, for free. People should not have to pay to have a more private Internet. Cloudflare now lists out 7 million or so domains on the Cloudflare platform that 1.1.1.1 should instantly connect to. That makes Cloudflare better, and it makes the Internet better, a win-win. Dubbed as 1.1.1.1 app; the new application can be downloaded from the respective app stores of Android and iOS platforms. Secondly, your ISP may block content in your country, and by using an alternative DNS you can bypass this restriction - meaing the mobile app for 1.1.1.1 willl prove invaluable for travellers. This means that if you're using 1.1.1.1, you won't be able to use an actual VPN provider at the same time. Doing so will generate a VPN profile, which will automatically reroute the DNS traffic through the app so that it utilizes the 1.1.1.1 DNS servers.
