Is a VPN necessary if one has setup one’s computer with Cloudflare’s DNS settings?
In short, no. Why would you think so?
That 22.214.171.124 VPN thing is a cellphone “feature.” Desktop computers are much easier to configure DNS on.
This is because cellphones jump between networks and VPN is necessary to keep a consistent DNS setting.
I have the same question, since the FAQs for the iOS app state the following:
“ ### Is the 126.96.36.199 app a VPN?
“No. A VPN app typically proxies all of your network traffic. The 188.8.131.52 app only overrides and secures your mobile phone’s DNS traffic.”
As @sdayman said, the mobile app creates a VPN connection for 184.108.40.206 to work, although as the FAQs say, 220.127.116.11 is not a VPN, it needs a VPN connection to work. It only encrypts your DNS queries, not all your web traffic.
On a desktop PC, you can use 18.104.22.168 without a VPN set up but you could use a VPN as well if you wanted.
