About this app

* Quick presentation

OpenDNSUpdater is an extremely easy to use android app to perform dynamic IP updates on OpenDNS services.

* Presentation

OpenDns is a very famous DNS service used by a lot of people, but not everybody knows that they also provide some filtering product for individuals.

This type of service is free and can be very useful to filter websites such as porn, phishing, malware, and many other category.

The service rely on your external IP to perform filter actions.
Why an android application for a DNS service ?

As I said on the previous line, the service rely on your external IP address, so when you change access point or start using mobile data, you request will not be filtered.

Updater exist for almost Windows, Mac and Linux, but not for Android or IOS. ( https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/articles/227988607-OpenDNS-Compatible-Dynamic-DNS-DDNS-Clients )

I'm unable to get the app to work. I'm using the email address that I use to log into the OpenDNS website, and password (which does not contain an ampersand per your instruction) and I'm using the network name which shows up on the windows app. It simply fails to log in. Perhaps I'll briefly change my password to something simple and try it again.

I give it 5 stars as I loved it. At first, I had an issue, it was failing the Login Test, but I had an "&" in my OpenDNS password. I was able to fix the issue by changing my OpenDNS password, no big deal. Then the app is working very well so far, as expected. (I have necer used any official OpenDNS app, so I can't compare feature-wise). I love the whitelist feature on this app. I am using this app on soe Android phones that I have connected duing the summer to a MiFi router, I have set the OpenDNS servers in the Mifi DHCP config, so that I can enhance security of the network and enforce some URL filtering.

The current rating of 3.0 maybe just a tad low, probably more like 3.5. Seems to work with Cisco's Free Open DNS nameserver filtering. However, it has a nonstandard method of initially teaching the features with an abundance of Engrish to filter thru --broken English that stays around for the life of the app, I should add--and with very technical configuration material where clear and accurate communication is vital! If they would humbly submit their code to a native standard English speaker...
