I started it and could activate it per site or for all sites.
I activated it for all sites and went to https://dnsleaktest.com
and I had a different IP
BUT! It did override my dnscrypt and replaced all my nameservers with Google in Holland.
That is a big no no
So I removed the extension.
|I installed the extension and went to dnsleaktest.com. There I was greeted as an American so that is good.|
I ran the check and my ip and location was different but my DNScrypt server stayed
So here I have VPN and encrypted DNS traffic.
This thing is on or off very simple to use and no speed reduction. I'll keep it for a while to check further.
These services all make a great point out off accessing sites that your ISP blocks - but that is blocked via DNS so Dnscrypt had already taken care of that part for me - and it is not why I want VPN.
I want to spoil the retention the ISP does and the usual crooks- because privacy is a human right.
And Betternet might be doing just that.
I have installed the extension - Betternet can also be installed as an App but I don't know the difference.
So far this thing is looking good!
One thing is slightly bothering me though; this thing always gives me an American IP.
I installed the extension and simply turned it on.
checked it out and it respects my DNScrypt and hides my identity and location.
It is hard to tell the difference from Betternet but it does not have Betternets "Totally free forever" guarantee.
Unlike Betternet; Gom keeps my given IP even after I have turned it off - that is not exactly what I expect when I turn VPN off.
And so far Gom also insist of making an American out of me...
When I try to turn Gom on again it starts to nag me about signing in to get uninterrupted access -and stuff like that makes me loose interest very fast....so I will remove it now.
As you now undoubtedly are sitting on the edge of you chairs waiting eagerly for my conclusion - this is it:
Betternett wins and lives up to its name - it is better. I am pretty sure that a setup with openvpn and cryptstorm is way more secure so I'll keep that but this extension represents a step in the right direction.
Using them is way better than not using them - if you like to close your toilet door - Betternet will do that for you and you do not have to register.
..And maybe there are better solutions in Firefox....
