#5286 Would like to see Secure DNS option for the VPN


  • New

    Hello,

    I would like to make a suggestion, that the VPN have the ability to choose to pick from a Secure DNS.  Something like Next DNS or Quad 9.  To increase the detection of malware and advertisements. If I want to have a VPN that does this, I have to purchase a specific one that has this optiion.  I would really like to see this security measure enabled in upcoming releases.  I think it will help to prevent malware and advertisements.

    System Settings

    Operating system: Win 11, x64

    System: 64 bit proccessor

    Product: PLUS

    Product Version: 16.0.0.+

    Language: en-US

  • Great suggestion! Using a secure DNS like NextDNS or Quad9 would add protection and privacy while browsing. Integrating options for secure DNS servers into the VPN client would be hugely beneficial for security-focused users. It would allow more customization and control over DNS, helping block malware, ads, and trackers. Hopefully, the VPN developers consider adding more configurable DNS options soon! Pickleballplay

    @tinker Hello, usefull but you can setup in windows. And all programs will be connected to the internet via secure DNS. I have set it up in windows quad9. Simply change network adapter DNS to 9.9.9.9 thats it. But if you connected via Kaspersky VPN - then kaspersky change your DNS to american 198.51.100.1 primary and secondary (alternative) DNS 198.51.100.2. It is however kaspersky VPN uses hotspot shield core or services. And i see DNS check it is from Google (not trustworthy all about google).
