1.1.1.1 DNS For More Private and Faster Internet Access

For better internet service and privacy concerns APNIC together with Cloudflare have introduced a new DNS resolution service called 1.1.1.1, where Cloudflare will use its own network to host the DNS service.

Cloudflare and APNIC initiate this because of users privacy concerns, where other DNS resolution services logs users queries and even sell their data to third-party services. Moreover this will also boost the speed of existing DNS services.

What makes 1.1.1.1 Different?
As we already wrote, the main concern of 1.1.1.1 is users privacy, where other DNS resolution services logs users queries and IP's, which allows them to track users and also they sell user data to different advertising services.
"We began talking with browser manufacturers about what they would want from a DNS resolver. One word kept coming up: privacy. Beyond just a commitment not to use browsing data to help target ads, they wanted to make sure we would wipe all transaction logs within a week. That was an easy request. In fact, we knew we could go much further. We committed to never writing the querying IP addresses to disk and wiping all logs within 24 hours." - Cloudflare
 As it is using Cloudflare network, it claims that 1.1.1.1 will have faster speed than any other resolution service.

Any users who is familiar with the DNS service or configuration of DNS can do this. You can easily configure your router, computer systems or mobile devices. If you face any problems then you read this easy guidelines for configuration.
