About this app

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.
------

When navigating to a website known by it's name, say example.com, your device ask specific servers - DNS servers - how to address the website. DNS is an old protocol which, except for smaller changes, hasn't been touched since its creation in 1987. Naturally the Internet changed a lot in this time, rendering the protocol outdated in some of its core aspects.

This app tackles one of the bigger problems with DNS: Encryption.
Whilst nearly all traffic on the Internet is encrypted now, DNS requests (i.e. questions for a names address) and the response aren't. This enables attackers to intercept, read and modify your requests.

Nebulo is a DNS changer which implements DNS-over-HTTPs and DNS-over-TLS and DoH3 to safely send your DNS requests to the target server. This way only you and the DNS server are able to read the requests you are sending.

Core features:
- Configure the app once and then forget about it. After initial configuration it works fully autonomous
- No ads and no tracking
- Custom servers can be used
- Low battery consumption

This app is open source. The source code can be accessed from within the app.

After looking at the Intra privacy policy I decided to try and find another app that serves the same purpose. That's when I stumbled upon Nebulo and I haven't looked back. You can use both DoH and DoT and switch between them easily. The query log and advanced settings are a bonus. All around great app and I recommend it to all my friends.

This is a great app. very intuitive and lots of useful options. It does use a little more battery power but that's to be expected. Also I noticed on two different phones that it could fail to connect occasionally when it had been used for some days. Turning it off made the connection again. Clearing the app data and re-applying my settings seemed to fix it. If I notice this again, I'll do some checks to try and diagnose the problem.

Tried this app and it did work, does its job. I can browse the web fast, secure and private, maybe? Lol, i don't know, i ain't a tech savvy. The downside is that the app consume too much battery power and it slowing down my phone while i browse the internet. Connection its fine and its fast, but damn my phone is heating up like a microwave. Good app nonetheless, it has no ads and open source.
