Cannot Override DNS 1 and DNS 2 on Smartphones

Hello,

I change both DNS addresses to NextDNS but when I check my current DNS addresses on a website, it shows 2 DNS addresses that belong to Google and 1 DNS address that belongs to other provider.

I tried IPv4 DNS addresses and IPv6 addresses that NextDNS provides me with but it made no difference. 

NextDNS dashboard also tells me that I am not connected to its DNS addresses:

"This device is currently using ”Google DNS” as DNS resolver."

This issue is present on both of my Samsung smartphones. Haven't checked PC but I think it will be same.

  • Did you try the "private DNS" Android feature already?

  • It works on my Android 10 smartphone but Android 8 on my other smartphone does not have that feature.

      Boris Get Intra or Nebulo and set your NextDNS DoH there.

    • Boris yeah that feature was introduced with Android 9.

      You shouldn't use outdated OS versions anyway

      Martheen Jigsaw are developers for Intra but they are linked to Google. I trust Nebulo more. Thanks.
