  • What is DNS?
    Https:// - Totally free and fun but intense bunch of programs. If you are willing to learn, its ready and waiting, unrestricted and free. The guides are easy and after a good sitting you will have the confidence needed to surf. - Source: / 5 months ago
  • Is there a perfect DNS solution?
    Running your own local recursive caching DNS resolver is always good. Something like a Pihole for home networks works well. You can also host your own DNS resolver on a VPS, and then connect to it using DNSCrypt. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago

    Well... You could try installing rethink vpn + firewall and configure dnscryptservers in it. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago

    DNSCrypt includes those encryption protocols. Do you use AdGuard Home - DNSCrypt? - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Firefox DNS-over-HTTPS
    This is FUD. This possibility has nothing to do with HTTP vs. [some other DNS-like protocol] sitting on top of an encrypted connection. This possibility is, however, enabled by having the application package its own DNS resolution. If you want to use DNS over HTTPS as a system-wide daemon, you can use DNSCrypt 2 ( ) and disable DoH within Firefox/Chrome. - Source: Hacker News / 12 months ago

  • Pentagon retakes control of IP addresses it moved in last minutes of presidency
    It's not Cloudflare's fault. In any case in order to maintain privacy I use it has an anonymized DNS option I then just use unbound and forward that to DNSCrypt on my router. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
