info_text_dns DNS stands for Domain Name System.

The Domain Name System is used to resolve Domains (google.com, yahoo.com, example.com…) to IP Addresses (192.168.178.1 for example) to communicate over the Internet.

It is one of the most important systems used in IP-based networks.
vpn_explain This App works without a rooted phone.

To make this possible all traffic is redirected using a VPN. This VPN redirects your traffic only locally, the data never leaves your phone using this VPN connection.

You'll be asked to allow the VPN connection in the next window, without permission from you the set DNS servers won't work.

info_text_how_does_it_work Android allows you to configure DNS servers in the wifi settings - but not for mobile connections (3G, 4G…). This however requires you to use a static IP address, doesn't allow switching easily and won't work with IPv6, among other disadvantages when compared to this app.

This app takes advantage of Androids VPN structure which allows devices to set DNS servers dynamically. To achieve this a local vpn is created which uses the same device as endpoint - this means the vpn connection neither connects to the internet itself, nor is it detectable from outside.
As this dummy-VPN can be started/stopped dynamically it allows for a range of features and automatation. This VPN isn't tapped and no data is read by it. It's just a middle man in changing the DNS servers.

If you are interested in the technical side of this, visit my git at git.frostnerd.com.
