About this app

* Quick presentation

OpenDNS Updater 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. ( )

* Other informations

The bundled VPN Service is only required to enforce OpenDNS servers when activated. When used, only DNS queries are intercepted to then be resolved against OpenDNS. All of your internet traffic then use your internet normally without specific routing.

This is an open source project; For more information on the app and the source code, please go to

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.

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.
