Privacy DNS blocks trackers that secretly collect your data inside your apps, browsers, and email! Trackers lurk in 90% of websites and apps, and up to 70% of emails, collecting data about your location, identity, and sensitive online activities. These threats put you at greater risk of being hyper-targeted and successfully hacked. Our AI-driven, device wide protection blocks privacy threats and encrypts your device’s DNS lookups to prevent unwanted surveillance.

Our data policy: We never collect, log, or share any of your data. These commitments are clearly stated in our privacy policy.

Use this app to block malicious ads and content that threaten your security and slow down your browsing and app activity. Our protection can more than double the speed of page and app loads. Disconnect’s Privacy DNS encrypts and filters the DNS connections your device makes in the background. Keep protection on and feel free to close the app and use your device as usual as our protection quietly keeps you safe.

We strive to provide the best and most usable privacy solutions available. Our pioneering privacy products are designed to offer strong protection without causing any hassles, slowdown, or breakage. Take control of your personal data and regain the freedom to move about the internet, and your life, without unwanted entities looking over your shoulder.

Disconnect’s privacy technology is integrated into several popular browsers including Mozilla's Firefox and Microsoft's Edge and our apps have been Featured by The New York Times, Washington Post, 60 Minutes, Today Show, Wired, & many more!

Disconnect never logs, tracks, or collects any of your online activity or personal information, except the information you explicitly volunteer (like if you decide to email us).

I like apps that block the “bad guys”

This is a cool app and apps like this makes me feel a little bit safer on the internet (I’ve had a few problems with cybercrime) My only disappointment with it is that they don’t have Verizon on the list. Perhaps if I were to upgrade… I am not quite there yet. For now I will have to suffice for Facebook and Google. But I despise Verizon the most… it’d be cool if I could swap them out. Google and Verizon that is.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us! We're always improving our blocklist to include even more trackers, and we appreciate hearing from our users. If you want to have even greater control over the blocklist in the app, you may want to check out our Privacy Pro app in the App Store. The optional paid subscription (if you're ever ready to subscribe) allows you to add or remove any URLs from your blocklist at any time.

Simple and effective

Love this app, and especially that it works without the battery drain of other apps that change your DNS with a VPN profile.

Can’t use many apps with Privacy DNS on

I’m finding more and more apps that will not allow me to have this app on while using. For example: Sephora and Nextdoor are two that won’t allow me to use it unless I have turned Privacy DNS turned off. This is a bummer, but I’m also willing to give up some of my apps if need be. Is there any way to get around the block though?

Developer Response ,

Current response: Thank you for sharing what you're seeing with having issues accessing apps. If you are able, please reach out to so our support team can investigate the conflicts.

Original response: So sorry to hear you're running into trouble. If you have not, turning the app's protection off, restarting you phone, then turning the protection back on may help. If you still run into issues, please reach out to our support team at so they can help you get back to being fully protected.
