Not sure how to read the info over https://1.1.1.1/help

Hello everyone, I just followed the steps to put 1.1.1.1 DNS on my android phone as well as my router.

In the help page found here: https://1.1.1.1/help, here are my results on Android:

Connected to 1.1.1.1: No
Using DNS over HTTPS (DoH): No
Using DNS over TLS (Dot): No

1.1.1.1: Yes
1.0.0.1: Yes
[… the other two iPv6 connections]: Yes

I refreshed the page several times and the result don’t change. I’m connected via the application.

As for when my wifi is on, I get the following results (still on my phone):

Connected to 1.1.1.1: Sometimes no, sometimes yes (which is weird?)
Using DNS over HTTPS (DoH): No
Using DNS over TLS (Dot): No

1.1.1.1: Yes
1.0.0.1: Yes
[… the other two iPv6 connections]: No

Why does it say yes at the bottom for IPv4 / IPv6 while no at the top (except sometimes yes on router).

Also, how do I activate using DNS over HTTPS? Is this necessary if I use extensions like HTTPS everywhere on Firefox?

Thanks for your help!

Bump!

Anyone?

Hello everyone, I’m making a new topic with different tags because I didn’t receive any answers and I’m wondering all of this work…

I don’t have an Android phone, but maybe @MarkMeyer does.

DoH and HTTPS Everywhere are a bit different. So do both. Here are Firefox instructions:

DoH, or “Private DNS” seems to be a bit buggy to me. Sometimes it says “unable to connect” and needs to be re-activated (disable, save, enable, save) That’s my experience.

You can’t use custom DNS on mobile networks, except DoH which is available since Android 9. Are you sure your phone does not fall back to mobile data due to bad WiFi connection?

Ignore that. It’s just a check if you’re able to reach 1^4. Helpful debug information since some providers blocked or hijacked at least 1.1.1.1.

If you’re using Warp, check your energy settings and ensure that energy saving isn’t active and the app ist not restricted. It’s also worth to open Warp and shake your phone. Though I doubt that this is an issue with the app itself.

The Warp setting is new since I posted that topic.

Connected to 1^4 is still “No”, but using DNS over WARP is Yes. Does that mean it works?

Also, isn’t 1^4 already a private DNS? What’s DoH/DoT? Would you recommend using any of them or are they too buggy?

@sdayman is this your experience as well?

Thanks!

I was talking about Android, not Cloudflare’s App or their DNS Servers.

DoH is called “Private DNS” in Android, since requests are ecrypted. Standard requests to 1.1.1.1 aren’t.

Sorry, I’m not sure to understand.

Requests to 1.1.1.1 aren’t encrypted? You mean the connection from the ISP to 1.1.1.1? But then when you’re connected to 1.1.1.1, everything is encrypted right?

Also, I’m not sure why, but my connection is really slower when I use 1^4 app on Android…? Can apps block the connection?

No. The issue of DNS is that requests are unencrypted. So the DNS provider, in this case Cloudflare, could see any domain or URL you are visiting. Also everyone in the middle can. That’s a privacy issue.

To enrycpt these requests, you need to use DoH or DoT

Ok, I’ll check this out soon, is there a way to prevent the topic from closing? If it still doesn’t work, I’ll just create a new one if not.

Thanks a lot for your help!!

Timer reset to one month from now.

Hello, me again, from what I’ve understood, they each reach the same goals by using different protocols?

Which one should I use then? Is one more efficient/faster then the other?

Also, is there a step by step guide that I can use to implement them?

Thanks! :slight_smile:

I’m a newbie to all of this and I need help understanding all of it… :confused:
