Cloudflare Launches 18.104.22.168 DNS Changing App For iOS And Android
Cloudflare made waves earlier this year by launching its 22.214.171.124 DNS service, allowing users to switch away from their ISP-owned DNS service or, perhaps even worse, Google’s.
The theory behind 126.96.36.199 is that Cloudflare will not only offer a blazingly fast DNS service for users, free of charge, but that it also will not collect any data on the traffic that passes through those servers. That’s not something Google can claim and because changing DNS settings on an iOS device isn’t easy, especially when using LTE, Cloudflare has launched a new iOS app that makes using 188.8.131.52 easier than ever.
Also available for Android, and while not quite as secure as using something like a VPN, changing DNS services can be a great way of staying safe online. The Cloudflare 184.108.40.206 app actually works similarly to the way a VPN app would on iOS.
When users wish to use Cloudflare 220.127.116.11 they simply launch the app and slide the switch to Connected, with the app taking care of the rest.
If you’ rather do things the old fashioned way, you can open Settings > Wi-Fi > and tap on the ‘i’ button next to your Wi-Fi network. Next, tap DNS: Configure DNS > Manual > Add Server > Type 18.104.22.168 before saving. There’s a secondary DNS server of 22.214.171.124 if you’d like to add that, too.
There’s currently no Mac app available but changing your DNS settings on Apple’s macOS is easy enough to do if you’d like to. Open System Preferences > Wi-Fi > Advanced > DNS > + > 126.96.36.199 and click OK. Finally, drag 188.8.131.52.
We’ve been using 184.108.40.206 for a while now and privacy aspect aside, it’s lightning fast. We’d suggest it’s worth making the switch for that alone.
