What is VyprDNS?
VyprDNS is Golden Frog’s 100% owned and operated service available exclusively for VyprVPN users. We developed our zero-logging VyprDNS service to increase user privacy and defeat censorship across the world. VyprDNS is included with all plans and is active whenever you use VyprVPN.
How does VyprDNS protect from man-in-the-middle attacks?
DNS man-in-the-middle attacks can occur when a government or 3rd party redirects you to a different online destination than you were trying to reach. For example, when you try to reach www.facebook.com governments in China, Iran and Turkey could intercept your DNS request and redirect you to an error page. Using VyprVPN with VyprDNS, your data and DNS requests pass through an encrypted tunnel that defeats “man-in-the-middle” DNS attacks and prevents DNS filtering so you can experience an open internet.
How does VyprDNS protect from DNS Filtering?
Coffee shops, airports and other public WiFi hotspots frequently configure their DNS servers to deny access to specific types of websites. We strongly believe in a free and open internet. Our VyprDNS service does not restrict access to websites or hosts.
How do I enable VyprDNS?
Open settings from within the VyprVPN application, scroll down and select the DNS menu item. You can select VyprDNS or configure a third party DNS from the DNS settings screen.
How can I use VyprDNS?
When you connect to VyprVPN using a manual connection or through our Android, Mac, or Windows applications with VyprDNS enabled in the settings, your connection will utilize VyprDNS.
If I don’t want to use VyprDNS, how can I use 3rd Party DNS?
You can configure an alternative DNS in the Android, Mac, and Windows applications by navigating to settings and then DNS.
