Encrypted DNS – DNS over TLS support

DNS over TLS support is available on all our services through port 853. DNS over TLS encrypts and authenticates all your DNS traffic to protect your privacy and prevent DNS hijacking and sniffing. Support for DNS over TLS (Private DNS) has been added to Android Pie 9 and you can leverage it right away with any one of our filters:

Security Filter

Our security filter blocks access to phishing, malware and malicious domains. It does not block adult content.

Domain:security-filter-dns.cleanbrowsing.org
IPv4 address185.228.168.9:853 and 185.228.169.9:853
IPv6 address[2a0d:2a00:1::2]:853 and [2a0d:2a00:2::2]:853

Family Filter

Blocks access to all adult, pornographic and explicit sites. It also blocks proxy and VPN domains that are used to bypass the filters. Mixed content sites (like Reddit) are also blocked. Google, Bing and Youtube are set to the Safe Mode.
