How to Use CloudFlare 1.1.1.1 DNS on Google Chrome

The Chromium-based browser has tons of built-in features that can be activated and used.

One feature that I find very useful is the feature to use secure DNS.

There are several public DNS that can be used, including Google DNS, OpenDNS, Quad9, and 1.1.1.1.

Well, what I will discuss this time is specific to DNS 1.1.1.1 from Cloudflare.

Why? Because 1.1.1.1 is the fastest DNS at this time, so it is very suitable for those of you who frequently browse using Chromium.
What is 1.1.1.1?
1.1.1.1 is a DNS service developed by Cloudflare.

By using this DNS, we can surf the internet more quickly and privately.

If you use a mobile device such as an Android phone, iPhone, or iPad, then the 1.1.1.1 application is available which can be downloaded for free on the App Store or Play Store.

With this application, it will be easier for us if you want to use DNS 1.1.1.1, that is, just open the application and just tap the Activate button.

So what about computer users?

Currently, Cloudflare does not provide a desktop application for 1.1.1.1. We have to do the settings manually.

However, if you use the Chromium browser (or all its derivatives such as Chrome, Brave, Edge, Opera, etc.), there is a built-in feature to use DNS 1.1.1.1.

How to? Follow the full tutorial below.

4
Finished. Close your Chrome Settings tab. Then use Chrome as usual for browsing.

Conclusion
As I said, the tutorial above can be applied to all Chromium-based browsers, including:

Google Chrome;
Brave Browser;
Opera;
Microsoft Edge;
And others.
What’s interesting about this method is that you don’t need to download additional extensions because this is a built-in feature of Chromium, so you only need to activate it.

If you want to disable it for some reason, repeat the steps above then disable the Use secure DNS option.
