Using your ISP's DNS servers is not really a good idea, after all:

- They can "soft-block" piracy websites
- They can use your information about websites visited through their DNS servers

Using Google's is better, but..

- Google is still an advertising company, so you have to wonder what they'll do with all your wonderful data

And then Donald introduced me to Quad9 today.

- Faster speeds compared to Google (though minimal difference)



- Their TOS, FAQ and Privacy Policy looks way less "we sell your data" than Google

How to use Quad9's DNS servers?

- Just enter 9.9.9.9 for your preferred DNA server, no alternative needed.
