Successfully Using The DNS Proxy
If you are encountering any trouble getting your DNS Proxy working, please check the tips below:
1.Disable IPv6. When generating a DNS Proxy, it will allow only devices from your IPv4 address to connect. If you are experiencing connection issues, we suggest turning off IPv6 on your device. To disable IPv6 on Windows, open Control Panel, navigate to Network and Sharing Center, click on Change adapter settings, right-click on your network connection, select Properties, and uncheck the box next to Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), then click OK to save the changes.
2.Use a Static IP. If your IP changes often, it could cause issues authenticating to the DNS Proxy. Check with your ISP to see if you can get a static IP address, or remain on this page after generating the DNS Proxy, so if your IP changes then the new IP will become authorized to connect as well.
3.Understand the Limitations. A DNS Proxy is not a full proxy, it will only proxy DNS requests. This means any time your device looks up a website, domain, or hostname to resolve the IP address, the DNS Proxy will be used if configured correctly. The DNS Proxy does not work as a proxy for IPs, for example if you visit using a browser or any application that makes direct IP requests, then the DNS Proxy will be bypassed.

Universal Device Compatibility

DNS Proxy services offer some of the best device compatibility over other types of proxy and VPN services, as no software is required. Nearly all devices such as PCs, Macs, Android, iOS mobile devices, gaming consoles, and routers will support changing the DNS IP address, allowing your to use the Smart DNS Proxy.

What is a Smart DNS Proxy?

Hide My IP's Smart DNS Proxy service allows for a simple method to obscure your IP address and location. No additional software or apps are needed, you can simply set the provided Smart DNS Proxy IP address in your router or operating system configuration to use the proxy IP.

The Benefits of Opting for a DNS Proxy

One of the standout benefits of utilizing a DNS Proxy is its ability to guard against DNS IP leaks, a common vulnerability with many VPN services. These leaks can occur during VPN disconnections or connectivity glitches, risking exposure of your actual IP address. DNS Proxies, however, maintain your privacy without the need for specialized software, offering a streamlined and efficient solution to protect your online identity.

Authentication with the DNS Proxy

Authenticating devices with the DNS Proxy works a bit differently than other types of proxies and VPNs as there are no credentials needed to connect such as a username or password. Instead, your IP address that is used to generate the DNS Proxy will be the only IP allowed to connect, and all connections to the DNS Proxy must come from that IP address. For best compatibility, we suggest disabling IPv6, as it can cause issues for some device types.
