Cloudflare launches 1.1.1.1 DNS service

Post by ukimalefu »

Cloudflare is launching its own consumer DNS service today, on April Fools’ Day, that promises to speed up your internet connection and help keep it private. The service is using https://1.1.1.1, and it’s not a joke but an actual DNS resolver that anyone can use. Cloudflare claims it will be “the Internet’s fastest, privacy-first consumer DNS service.” While OpenDNS and Google DNS both exist, Cloudflare is focusing heavily on the privacy aspect of its own DNS service with a promise to wipe all logs of DNS queries within 24 hours.

Looks like it is Google blocking things because I do not allow universal javascript.

They (will) have a VPN now

https://blog.cloudflare.com/1111-warp-better-vpn/

Can't download yet, but you can't sign up to get it.

what you can do is claim your place in line to be among the first to get Warp. If you already have the 1.1.1.1 App on your phone, you can update it through the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. If you don’t yet have the 1.1.1.1 App you can download it for free from Apple or Google. Once you’ve done that you’ll see an option to claim your place in line for Warp. As we start onboarding people, your position in line will move up. When it’s your turn we’ll send you a notification and you’ll be able to enable Warp to experience a faster, more secure, more private Internet for yourself.


For phones first, for desktops later.
