Cloudflare’s New DNS Speeds Up Your Internet And Saves Your Privacy

Cloudflare is no stranger to many developers. The company has built a strong presence for itself by protecting numerous websites as well as speed them up. They were able to achieve some amazing success thanks to their business plan that allowed websites protected by Cloudflare to load web resources from the server closest to the user trying to access that website.

Recently, the folks over at Cloudflare had an amazing announcement to make that would simply enhance our online browsing experience. What they’ve done is that they’ve launched a new DNS service that would allow users connected with their DNS routing to be able to browse the internet faster and much more securely.

Since applying DNS for many users is simply a piece of cake, Cloudflare has released a guide over on their blog to show off how the people of the internet could take advantage of their new service. The DNS servers launched by Cloudflare consist of two IPs, these two IPs are 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1. That’s it! Regarding how to install them on your devices. Here’s how to apply them on Windows 10, courtesy of Cloudflare.
