What does 1.1.1.1 mean to you?

SPEED AND SECURITY THAT'S WHAT...

Your Internet traffic is monitored by your service provider? Here's how to put a stop to that nonsense!





Firstly let's try and understand why and what happens when you click on a link...

What is the DNS?

The DNS is the Internet’s Directory. Nearly everything on the Internet starts with a DNS request. DNS is the Internet’s directory. Click on a link, open an app, send an email and the first thing your device does is ask the directory: Where can I find this?


Unfortunately, by default, DNS is usually slow and insecure. Your ISP, and anyone else listening in on the Internet, can see every site you visit and every app you use — even if their content is encrypted. Creepily, some DNS providers sell data about your Internet activity or use it to target you with ads. We think that’s gross. If you do too, now there’s an alternative: 1.1.1.1
