••• About DNS Override •••
Do you want to change DNS settings for your cellular connection – but are frustrated that the only choices you have to set DNS servers for your Wi-Fi network are to change the settings on your device, or reconfigure your router? Well, now you have a MUCH better option thanks to DNS Override!

••• How it works •••
DNS Override is the first and only app that lets you quickly and easily set and change DNS server preferences on your iPhone or iPad. You simply choose from several popular public DNS providers, such as Cloudflare, OpenDNS, Google Public DNS, Norton ConnectSafe and more.

••• SmartDNS •••
You can also choose from 10+ SmartDNS providers that offer various enhanced features, including filtering adult or objectionable content, blocking ads, avoiding SPAM and malware, accessing geo-restricted content, and much more.

••• Global Settings & Custom Profiles •••
With DNS Override, you can create a single global setting for ALL of your Wi-Fi and cellular connections, which means that you don’t have to waste time configuring each connection separately. You can also create custom profiles, and switch between them with a single tap. Changing the DNS setting is also easy and takes mere seconds.

••• Enhanced Privacy •••
DNS Override delivers a direct, fast, and secure connection between your device and your designated DNS provider. There is no active VPN link passing all your traffic to any third party and slowing down your Internet. The app provides you with a regularly updated list of DNS addresses.

••• Simple to Use •••

Excellent Customer Support! Excellent App!

I’m an Apple Certified Technical Coordinator and I had a few suggestions for the app. The developer decided to implement these suggestions in a near future release and gave me clear answers to my questions. The app works as intended. I’ve experienced no bugs so far. I see a few users are concerned about using DNS on cellular connections. I had the same question. The app does allow you to alter DNS on in cellular. However, the DNS service you may be using might not. This is a limitation of the DNS service, not this app. I have full confidence this app will continue to mature and the dev will add more features.

Does not work for cellular, only WiFi

I’ve tried multiple times and even restarted my iPhone but the app would not change the dns server for cellular as advertised and the reason I paid for the upgrade (you can change WiFi dns in settings without any app, but not cellular which is why this app is even in existence). The dns leak test , even the one that’s in the app, shows T-Mobile dns after I’ve “forced” it to something else in the app. Disappointing.

Also the app claims no VPN is used but they add a VPN profile to your device which stays disconnected. I’m curious about the hack they were trying to exploit in iOS but it obviously doesn’t work for cellular and concerned about potential privacy implications.

Google home page

Google search was not able to open the page over LTE network but worked over the wifi only. I talked to apple several times and nobody was able to fix my problem. I did factory reset several times too but not solved. But as soon as I download this app, i am enjoying it. Thank you
