We are excited to launch VyprDNS, our encrypted, zero-logging DNS available exclusively with VyprVPN. We developed VyprDNS to increase privacy for VyprVPN users and to defeat censorship across the world.
What is DNS and how does it affect you?
A DNS server translates hostnames (such as www.vyprvpn.com) into a computer readable IP address (188.8.131.52) so your computer can communicate with the desired host and connect to the website. Internet users typically rely on their ISP’s DNS servers or a 3rd party DNS. Unfortunately, these 3rd party DNS servers are often configured to block websites, log a complete record of your Internet activity or redirect your requests to pages with ads – even if you use a VPN.
Why use VyprDNS?
- Defeats censorship via DNS man-in-middle-attacks or filtering
- Superior DNS geolocation
- Never redirects your DNS requests to pages with ads
VyprDNS is built into VyprVPN. When you connect to VyprVPN, you are automatically using VyprDNS. No app updates, or action is required to use VyprDNS. Please note, VyprDNS cannot be used separately from VyprVPN.
You can also read our infographic on “The Hidden Dangers of DNS” and how VyprDNS defeats them.
To start using VyprDNS, you must have an active VyprVPN account. VyprDNS is enabled by default in the apps or via manual setup. If you don’t have VyprVPN you can start a 3-day free trial and experience VyprDNS for yourself. Defeat censorship, prevent DNS logging and restore your online freedom today.
