About Set DNS

Editors Review
Set DNS lets you force your device to use custom DNS nameservers for the WiFi/cellular network instead of the default ones used by your ISP or mobile service provider. This is done to help speed up browsing, enable content filtering (for adult or malware sites), or bypass DNS-based content filters. You can also input custom DNS addresses, or select from some popular free DNS servers like Google DNS, OpenDNS, OpenDNS Family Shield, and FoolDNS.
Set DNS is a free app for the Android that overrides name server information on Android phone for both wireless and 3G connections.

Set DNS is the easiest way to force rooted phone on using custom name servers on WiFi and 3G mobile networks. It basically preserves custom nameserver information when using both wireless and #G/EDGE mobile connection. This app comes with Google, Open DNS, Open DNS family shield, Fool DNS settings, custom DNS servers and option to revert back to DHCP. It also includes widgets that will show the current DNS state and if you have DNS Pro installed, it will allow nameserver changes by clicking the appropriate widget.

OpenDNS Family Shield settings can also be used to filter adult or inappropriate content on the phone. Using alternative nameservers like Google DNS or Open DNS can dramatically speed up browsing as well as by pass local DNS filters such as Nawala.

can also check if your browsing goes via proxy service that overrides your DNS. When network settings change, it will try to access a URL directly using IP address. If this hits the right server you have direct connection to the network.

If you find this app useful, please consider buying Set DNS Pro app which activates locking, control widgets and non-rooted functionality.
