Encrypt all DNS queries on all networks with the official NextDNS app for iOS.

You can set your configuration ID from your NextDNS account in the Settings to bring your blocking policy to your phone and get Analytics and Logs about your traffic.
If you do not have a NextDNS account yet, you can create one for free at


Additional features:

• Hardened Privacy Mode
Only use DNS servers located in jurisdictions with strong privacy laws — Switzerland, Iceland, Finland, Panama and Hong Kong.

• Censorship resistance
Bypass most forms of Internet censorship automatically.

• Passcode lock
Restrict access to the app with a passcode (for Parental Control).

What’s New

Version 1.2.2

• Increased resistance to networks and countries specifically trying to block NextDNS.
• Improved privacy when sending Device name (Devices are now unique to a configuration and can't be uniquely identifiable between 2 configurations). This will result in a duplicate device in the Analytics section (this will only happen once).
• Other small fixes.

Simply the best. I’ve tried every network traffic related app; this is your DNS strongarm!

I can’t even begin to write about how amazing this service is. You have to see for yourself. Especially those more technically inclined.

This is like the Pi-Hole for you never wanted to build anyway. Seriously.

To boot, NextDNS is a progressive company that really does work towards internet freedom. They practice what they preach. No shady stuff here. And trust me- I’ve caught similar apps with their pants down in my network traffic, and it ain’t pretty.

Needs configuration settings in app

Good service but there are no configuration settings in the app itself. You need to log into the website in a browser to change things like blocklists and logging options and view logs and analytics. It would be much more convenient to have all the web based stuff available in the app as well.

Would love if you guys could add a setting that could hide queries that are harmless but pop up often...thank you for responding quick, love this!
