IVPN apps are configured to automatically apply our internal zero-logging DNS IP address every time you connect to the VPN server to mitigate DNS leaks on your system.
We understand that in some cases, one can benefit more from using a custom DNS IP address. No matter the reason you need to use one, with IVPN, you can have it customized in just a few steps:
Windows and macOSNavigate to Settings/Preferences - DNS tab, check Use custom DNS…option and enter the preferred IP address.
iOSOpen the Settings menu by tapping on the three horizontal lines and navigate to Custom DNS. Toggle the Use Custom DNS switch on and enter the preferred IP address.
AndroidAccess Settings area by tapping on the “gear” icon and navigate to Custom DNS. Toggle the Use Custom DNS switch on and enter the preferred IP address.
DNS requests made to public DNS servers will first pass through the VPN tunnel, so there is still a level of privacy and security in place when using a Custom DNS server.
