Encrypt Your DNS (STOP Your ISP SNOOPING!)

Encrypt Your DNS (STOP Your ISP SNOOPING!)

We presume what we search for on the internet stays private. But you might be leaking all of your internet activity through something called a DNS request. It’s possible that every site you want to visit is being collected and sold by your ISP, or monitored by countless other entities.

In this video we review what DNS is, and explain how to encrypt your DNS requests, to stop unwanted snooping on your internet activity.

Protecting DNS privacy should be a part of everyone’s online safety practices. We want to be able to navigate the internet safely and with the peace of mind that not everything we’re doing is under constant surveillance.

As always, we have no partnership with Quad9 or any other company, we just like to spread awareness of tools that we think will help people preserve their rights online. You can support our free educational content here:
