DNS encryption and privacy


Well, if you are worried about internet privacy, the first thing to do is:

  1. Use a more private search engine. Looking at google search history is pretty frightening. I've been using startpage.com with decent success.
  2. to use a VPN so that your ISP can't snoop everything. Privateinternetaccess.com seems decent. It has good coverage. They also let you use it on your mobile phone as well with a little configuration.
  3. Don't use your ISPs DNS server because they can also use DNS queries to determine what you are up to. OpenNIC
  4. Use an encryption scheme on your DNS from OpenDNS (which is a private company btw) called DNSCrypt
