Cloudflare launched today official mobile apps for its 1.1.1.1 privacy-first DNS resolver service. It doesn't log the user's IP address, and is claimed to be faster than other DNS solutions as well.

Mobile device found it hard to switch to 1.1.1.1 before because changing DNS settings isn't as easy on mobile phones as it is on PCs. Dubbed as 1.1.1.1 app; the new application can be downloaded from the respective app stores of Android and iOS platforms. For those who are concerned about the tracking of their internet footprints, using Cloudflare's DNS service could be a good option.

Greater privacy: By using a secure connection, 1.1.1.1 makes sure no one can snoop your DNS queries. With the launch of 1.1.1.1 for iOS and Android, the process is much, much simpler - and the app and the service itself are free.

Internet security company Cloudflare has introduced its own Cloudflare DNS app that can both help mitigate surveillance as well as give you access to blocked websites. It is a public DNS resolver.

However, it's important to note that while 1.1.1.1 uses a VPN to route your internet traffic to its DNS, it doesn't proxy your internet use as a VPN does.

If you're on Android Pie, then you don't need this app, as Android Pie supports DNS over TLS.

Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 app is already available for download. The service works really fast, the pages load very quickly, especially if we're talking about those parts of the world in which the internet is a bit slower. If you try it, let us know what you think.

Typically, your internet service provider (ISP) supplies your DNS service, which turns a domain name like Google.ca into an IP address routers can understand. Is there a certain browser or DNS service that you prefer to use over the others? However, now that the mobile version of 1.1.1.1 has been released, they can enable the service easily.
