Hmm that does not look right.
I must admit that I do not get the results I want on my Android with DNS changer either without turning on and off and standing on my head.

Looks like Smartphones simply are insecure...no matter what :wall:

On My computers I get cloudflare servers.
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Centos on the server - Arch on the laptop.

Can you test in another browser?

Guess what?
Opera heard you! Update night before last included a VPN. The problem with using it, is it turns off Data Savings.

And I didn't think that looked right, either, but it's definitely running.

if 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 not works, do block your provider this.. and this.. is not directly a offer of freedom ! i would change my provider ..

Google "cloudflare IP DNS addresses"

1.1 DNS addresses:

For IPv4: 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1.
For IPv6: 2606:4700:4700::1111 and 2606:4700:4700::1001.

one of them should works..

But it's not the provider's fault. It's Cloudflare's.

On your phone? If you go back and read, you'll see I'm using the 1.1.1.1. app on my phone. It doesn't work.

so, then try to kick out this app and go into enhanced configuration at you Wi-Fi connection and search there

https://devilbox.readthedocs.io/en/late ... droid.html

[X]Automatic Configuration
DNS[_____________________]
to
[_]IP4 Automatic Configuration
DNS[1.1.1.1, 1.0.0.1, 8.8.8.8]

shuting off the wifi connection and restart it

and a correkt app :
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... dnschanger

there can you add you own dns and can test it out with different dns

if you not at google gives other possibilitys

https://apk-dl.com/en

https://apk-dl.com/dns-changer-no-root- ... dnschanger

Usually, the safest and fastest DNS to use is the one your ISP provides you with. It is faster because the servers are typically physically closer, meaning there will be less latency.

However, since Google DNS servers validate DNSSEC (which is DoS attack prevention) and ISP DNS servers may not (some do, but most don’t) and Google DNS also has more in-cache, its DNS Server might actually be faster to answer.

Google also has load balancing to improve the cache hit rate. Google IP addresses are 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4, so it’s actually easy to remember (it’s a small plus, but a plus nevertheless).

While Google might be fast, I personally think it lacks privacy since it collects your data. Google wants to make money, you know.

If you’re high on DNS safety, you might also want to check DNS Watch (IP addresses are 84.200.69.80 and 84.200.70.40). It’s completely free and offers:

1: DNS neutrality (no DNS request censorship)
2: Privacy Protection (no DNS query logs)
3: No ad networks or anyone looking into your online habits
4: No DNS hijacking (a common problem with ISPs is that you might end up on a sponsored search page when the website you wanted to visit did not return a response. These pages collect everything you enter on them, which is not great for privacy)
