iOS Suddenly Unconfigured

I'm on iOS 14.6 and as of today, NextDNS no longer appears to be working. It's still selected in my DNS screen, but the OS isn't using it. When I visit test.nextdns.io it says the status is unconfigured. It was working great for months until today and I haven't changed anything.

      Ryan works fine here. Test without VPN

      DynamicNotSlow Good call, it does appear that the VPN is the issue. It's actually not active in those screenshots, but from what I've gathered from testing it takes control over the DNS when it's enabled and doesn't properly release control over the DNS when it's disabled. Uninstalling or rebooting fixes it, but enabling & disabling the VPN causes the issue again.

      At this point it looks like it's a Windscribe issue and not a NextDNS issue. Thanks for the help!

    • Ryan FWIW, I see the same issue with NordVPN, even if I haven't been running the VPN for weeks. Disabling NextDNS via the toggle in the app completely breaks DNS until I reboot. Same iOS build.
