Encrypt all DNS queries on all networks with the official NextDNS app for iOS.
On iOS 14, this app uses the new native Encrypted DNS setting.
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 https://nextdns.io.
This update includes latency improvements. We recommend that you open the app once the update is complete.
Ratings and Reviews
Superb tool for privacy
These developers have come forward with a superb tool for protecting your privacy and also has some great security add-ones. I’ve installed this tool on all my mobile AND desktop devices. Go to their site online to get additional tools for the desktop. All tools and blocklists are configurable from the web page for your own custom setup. There is logging, so you can see what is being blocked and why.
You can also install this on a router to protect all the devices on your home network. Wish I was that technically savvy. You can subscribe for unlimited queries ($20 a year, CHEAP!) and frankly, they deserve the money.
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.
New update messed things up..
Since the new update, my profiles for my iPad, iPhone and home WiFi, which all had separate block lists, are ALL blocking the same thing, there’s no separation. I tried deleting and reentering the nextdns DNS settings on my home routers settings, using the ISP one, then waiting a bit, and then adding back the NextDNS settings, nope, didn’t work. Then adding to the headache, my NextDNS website kept showing the red dot on the setup page. Saying “this phone is not using NextDNS”. I deleted the configuration ID, turned off the NextDNS app, reentered the Config ID, turning on the app again. Same crap. All profiles are all somehow blocking randomly the same thing. I went on my phone, went to VPN & Network and went on DNS and added next dns. It’s annoying and confusing as to what went wrong
