We recommend only configuring Secure DNS on your Android, as not only is it a better option, it will also allow you to roam between networks without re-registering your IP address.
Modern versions of Android support DNS-Over-TLS, which called “Private DNS” in Android OS.
Go to your phone’s “Settings”
Search “Private DNS”
Tap on “Private DNS”
Choose “Private DNS provider hostname”
Input the DNS-Over-TLS hostname into the field. If you're configuring our free DNS resolvers, you can use these hostnames:
If you are configuring a custom DNS resolver, you can find your hostname in the My Account section.
Older versions of Android do not support Private DNS, so the only way to configure ControlD on your phone is by installing our app.
We don't recommend using legacy UDP 53 DNS servers on Android devices because it's not possible to change your DNS on cellular networks, and you will be forced to update it on every new Wi-Fi hotspot you encounter.
