About this app

Brazilian and German translation
For a full list of features scroll down

This app uses the Device Administrator permission.
This is in no way required any only used to prevent uninstallation if wanted by the user. No system settings are modified.

This app uses the VpnService. Usage of the VpnService is required to change the DNS servers for all types of networks (otherwise it would work for Wifi only), as well as offer advanced security features. No actual VPN connection is established and no data leaves the device via VPN.

Whilst it is fairly easy to adjust the DNS servers used by your device when using wifi, android offers no option to change the used DNS servers when using a mobile connection (2G/3G/4G etc.).
This App creates a VPN connection locally (No data leaves your phone using this VPN connection) to use your configured DNS servers on both wifi and mobile networks without needing root permissions.
Both Ipv4 and Ipv6 are usable, a feature which isn't supported on many phones (Even Android doesn't offer IPv6 DNS configuration in your wifi settings).

VERY useful!! The only thing that would make this better is if it would activate/deactivate based on SSID the device is connected to, or provide per-SSID profiles since not every network has the same setup. Currently, I have to manually disable this app when connected to WiFi away from my house and if I forget to do so, I'm essentially "offline" ☺️

I don't usually bother writing reviews but this app really earns a 5. I started having full screen pop ups and I couldnt stop it. I hadn't downloaded anything in weeks. I tried uninstalling the most recently updated. Nothing worked. My phone was almost unusable with all the pop ups. I read online about using a DNS change and tried this. 100% fix! No more popups. You do have to restart it every time the phone reboots. I get popups almost immediately after a reboot. Once I turn on the app it stops

Fantastic; been using it for years. All you have to do is set up a small Ubuntu VM, install PiHole, and you've got in-app ad blocking (as well as a backup for your browser if needed). Handy one tap shortcuts to toggle it, and excluded apps list. Careful: my phone likes to silently close dnspipe shortly AFTER you unplug it from the charger, sometime when the screen is off. That's just the stupid OS/manuf skin though; I've never had it crash on me.
