You might have seen the news that Google released a new feature called Private DNS mode in Android 9 Pie.

This new feature makes it easier to keep third parties from listening in on the DNS queries coming from your device by encrypting those queries.  DNS-over-TLS is something Quad9 has supported since our launch almost a year ago, and we’re excited to have Android support this feature in a way that end users can configure quickly and easily.

Configuring Private DNS to use Quad9

Android Pie only supports DNS-over-TLS at this time. To enable this on your device:

  1. Go to Settings –> Network & Internet –> Advanced –> Private DNS.
  2. Select the Private DNS provider hostname option.
  3. Enter dns.quad9.net and select Save. 

That’s it; you’re done!

Quad9 now protects you with anti-malware security, and your DNS requests on Android 9 are encrypted.

Note that if you are using pi-hole for your private wifi protection, changing the Quad 9 will no longer be using pi-hole DNS.
