    Up until recently, I've used it with quad9 DNS, which is fine, but as people found out, we can make it work with dnscrypt-proxy, which allows us to use DNSCrypt, which basically is a protocol that encrypts, authenticates and optionally anonymizes communications between a DNS client and a DNS resolver. It prevents DNS spoofing. It uses cryptographic signatures to verify that responses originate from the chosen DNS resolver and haven’t been tampered with. (as written at DNSCrypt's official website). That significantly increases our security and privacy (better using Anonymous DNS relays). Cheers
  • Should you change your DNS server (for gaming, streaming, general speed)

    If you're changing your DNS, you should be setting up system-wide DNS over HTTPS anyway, and most programs that implement DNS over HTTPS (like dnscrypt-proxy) also choose the lowest latency server from a list of servers on their own

    You don't even need a Weepy En, just get dnscrypt-proxy. It runs a local DNS server that will connect to multiple others of your choice using DNSSEC or DoH.

  • What is better DNScrypt, DOH or DOT?

    It should be noted that DNSCrypt v2 offers a unique advantage in the form of relays (Anonymized DNSCrypt), which ensure that domain names and client IP addresses from which DNS requests originate are not visible to providers as well (though this is subject to significantly increased latency). DNSCrypt also makes it easier to utilize multiple resolvers of one's choosing in a round robin configuration (though this can be done with DoT via clients like Stubby as well, it is a bit more time-consuming to set up).
  • Block lists for security

    I care a lot about performance, so it'll be great to have an ads block list for DNSCrypt, minimized in size, and using wildcards: https://github.com/DNSCrypt/dnscrypt-proxy/wiki/Filters

    You could also use dnscrypt-proxy (or Simple DNSCrypt for a GUI) with custom blocklists to prevent known malicious sites from loading.
