Every phone has default DNS servers which belongs to your Internet Service Provider (ISP). However, many people don’t want to use the default one. There are many advantages in using a 3rd-party DNS services.
- Better security
- Faster internet browsing
- Bypass website censorship filters
Following are 2 apps which can help switch DNS for both un-rooted and rooted devices:
Changing DNS without rooting
There are many free apps on Play Store which are advertised that it can switch your phone’s DNS without root permission. However, I only recommend DNSet for now.
DNSet is a DNS switcher app developed by Gambero & Di Florio. It has both free and paid versions. The free one only allows Google Public DNS while the paid one supports any type of DNS services. Both versions work both on Wi-Fi and 3G.
DNSet can be downloaded on Play Store.
Changing DNS for rooted devices
DNS Changer is a simple app which allows a rooted phone or tablet to switch DNS. The app comes with a built-in list of famous DNS services, you only need to choose one to connect to internet via that DNS service. It supports both Wi-Fi and 3G connection and allows to auto-switch when your phone is connected using a certain connection type.
