Private DNS on Android One - 9


#1

Hello All, I’m a new entry. The option Private DNS on my phone Android 9 doesn’t run, either in Wifi either in mobile mode.
Any suggestion ?

I’m not familiar with Private DNS on Android. Is this different from the 1.1.1.1 app?

Yes, it is a feature on Android 9 that allows you to set an encrypted DNS service (DNS over TLS) - like the screenshot.

It is different from the app because this uses DNS over TLS only, while the app created a VPN connection for the whole data channel.

If I well understand, with the app the only solution is “Auto” ?
