Cloudflare announces 1.1.1.1 - the fastest, privacy-first consumer DNS service

For those wanting to 86 8.8.8.8, here’s the 411 on 1.1.1.1.

They’re making some pretty big claims here. One is that it’s fast (which DNSPerf corroborates). The other big claim is that it’s “privacy-first”. This one is a bit harder to corroborate but their promise is pretty convincing:

We will never log your IP address (the way other companies identify you). And we’re not just saying that. We’ve retained KPMG to audit our systems annually to ensure that we're doing what we say.

If you care about speed and privacy (you should) there is a good chance you should consider switching to this.
