Block public DNS like google and other malware dns

Anyway to block the public DNS other than nextdns ? My iPhone is swapped by google DNS and seems to be spying on me?

  • In Parental Control -

    Block Bypass Methods

    Prevent or hinder the use of methods that can help bypass NextDNS filtering on the network. This includes VPNs, proxies, Tor-related software and encrypted DNS providers.

    But I think you chose the worst solution adding only the IPv4  DNS if I see it right and you might have leaks on IPv6.

    Look at Setup - Setup Guide - Select iOS and read.

    I don't know how it is on iOS or what version you have but if you can, use DNS-over-HTTPS or DNS-over-TLS

      losnad @juliank thanks for the reply. I do have the parental block to prevent other DNS & VPN , but seems to be not working. I have IOS NextDNS app with the password enabled and IOS version is 14.7.1.

  • Sounds like you misconfigure something. 
    i add NextDNS profile to my iPhone (without using any App) and no leaks. 
     

    and I don’t even block other DNS

    As mentioned by others in this thread, I also see those leaks from time to time on several leaktest pages with either the app or the profile. Everything is set up correctly.

      Chris yes , I see the same way and I had setup a cron job to test dns leak in my router. The router leaks are different than the iPhone dns leaks. Time to time !

      im sure google figured out someway to hack through since it’s hindering their business! I wish someone from nextdns take it to next level!

  • You said you are using the app. Is it enabled and configured like it says in Setup guide?

    All you showed was this,

    Google can't magically enter your phone.
    Even on Android I can block anything from Google. With a firewall you can monitor all the connections.
