Although setting up free service on computers was a straightforward process, it was difficult and almost impossible to configure on Android and iOS. However, Cloudflare has made available an app for both platforms to make easier to configure your phone or tablet to use the DNS address.

How to configure DNS service on your phone

The process to switch your default DNS IP address to from CloudFlare is very simple. Instead of changing the networking settings on your device, the mobile app leverages the VPN features on your device to encapsulate and route the traffic to the service to protect your privacy and improve browsing speeds, which also helps to block your carrier from tracking your online activities. CloudFlare DNS setup on Android Once you’ve completed the steps, you can start navigating the internet more privately and with faster address resolutions. While in the mobile app, you can tap the menu bottom at the bottom of the page, and then tapping the Advanced option, you can monitor a lot of information about the service. In the Status page, you can check if your Android or iPhone device is using the DNS address, and you can see your IP and other information. Also, the Logs page shows debug information, which can come in handy to troubleshoot and fix connection problems. (This information is automatically deleted every 24 hours.)
