Identify devices when using NextDNS on router?

I'm using NextDNS on my Google Wifi router to protect my family and all our devices. I set it up by using the DNS Servers listed in NextDNS and entered them into the Google Wifi app. We are set with that.

How can I identify my devices (Macs, Chromebooks, iPads, phones, etc)? Or is it not possible if I'm using NextDNS on my router?

  • The CLI can be used on a router or a server on the LAN to identify devices. It is not compatible with the Google Wifi router, but you can install it on the side, using a RPI or any always on system compatible with the CLI on your LAN.

  • The only way you can identify devices is by either installing the app on that device, or manually configuring DNS-over-HTTPS.

    If you go to https://my.nextdns.io/ just follow the setup instructions on that page.
