What is DNS?

The DNS is how your device translates URLs into IP addresses.

Every website on the Internet is identified by a string of numbers called an IP address, and each site’s IP address has a corresponding URL that is easier for humans to remember. The DNS, or domain name system, is how your device translates the URL that a human types or clicks into that string of numbers. So you don’t have to!

Off The Record is a VPN service with its own private DNS.

Off The Record VPN is a VPN service with its own private DNS. Unlike other VPN services, whenever you’re connected through Off The Record VPN, your DNS activity is protected by the same encryption and tunnelling protocol that covers the rest of your Internet traffic, because Off The Record VPN runs its own DNS on every VPN server.

No Third Parties

Third party DNS is vulnerable to manipulation.

Many VPN providers use third party DNS, which isn’t protected by the same encryption and tunneling protocol as the VPN, leaving it vulnerable to manipulation.

No DNS Blocking or Filtering

Third party DNS is often unprotected.
