Subject description: free public DNS resolvers for maximum privacy
 

https://dns.watch/index

84.200.69.80
84.200.70.40
Both are No Logging, DNSSEC enabled.

Introduction :
Introducing DNS.WATCH, a freedom and privacy-based DNS replacement that believes in freedom. Users that set up this DNS service will rest easy knowing that DNS.WATCH doesn’t log anything you do. Additionally, they have the service optimized for “maximum speed” and have enabled standard DNS security.

If you are curious about other free and public DNS servers, you will be well-served here :

To get you started on DNS settings change, look here :
https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-change-dns-server-settings-2617979

Gnome has Network Manager, and changing DNS settings is easy with it.
You can also use DNS.Watch with Firejail, instead of Google DNS servers (Google being less than stellar privacy-wise).

Finally, what they say about themselves :
No Censorship. No Bullshit. Just DNS.

Subject description: changing DNS settings
 

In a terminal, open resolv.conf :

geany /etc/resolv.conf

Change DNS IP :

Delete default DNS IP and put in place your chosen DNS IP :

DNS.Watch has both 84.200.69.80 and 84.200.70.40 for IPv4

nameserver 84.200.69.80

save and close.

Your default DNS IP should be ranked second after a logout or a reboot, so your primary DNS IP will be :

nameserver 84.200.69.80 or (Google) 8.8.8.8.

Your system uses your primary DNS IP address, then the second one if the first fails.

If you have no need to change DNS IP, better do nothing, but sometimes a user may prefer using a public DNS provider than the default one, for privacy (no log), security (dnssec), for torrenting copyrighted material, for parental control, adding a security layer.

DNSCrypt would encrypt your dns query, but it is hard to setup for non-advanced users, so changing your dns provider is the easy way to go to have better privacy and/or security.
