Cloudflare DNS service for improved security and speed


TLDR

Cloudflare launched a privacy focused DNS service for general consumers today that will speed up your internet and claims to remove all logs of DNS queries within 24 hours.

By updating your DNS records to https://1.1.1.1, Cloudflare suggests it will improve the speed and performance of your connection while also secure it from the prying eyes of your ISP. Logs are purportedly removed within 24 hours as well to provide consumers with confidence that their searches contain some amount of anonymity. Without having done any true testing, I can say at a glance my searches do appear faster.

To update your DNS settings head over to your network adapter settings and use the following two addresses to manually update your DNS settings:

  • 1.1.1.1
  • 1.0.0.1
