Cloudflare launches new mobile app to help you avoid getting tracked by ISPs

12 November 2018 3

Web privacy is a growing concern and as the internet grows, data privacy breaches rise alongside. The popular networking website knows the importance of privacy and how internet users are concerned in this regard may that be data breaches or the government trying to sneak into your browsing history. The company has a new app launched for Android and iOS device which is basically a VPN app that makes a new route for your web traffic.


Named as 1.1.1.1 app is a DNS switcher which makes the traffic of your smartphone pass through Cloudflare’s free DNS service. All this is done with a simple click which makes the app act like a VPN app helping the government and ISPs to track what you’re up to online. If you’re a frequent PC user, the company has you covered as well. It previously released a similar offering for the PC users as well which automatically makes few adjustments in your OS and saves your PC traffic to get back-tracked as well.

Users could also use the service to access various websites that are blocked in the country. Another amazing claim by the company is that it speeds up browsing, which would only be made clear once we get to test the service.

You can download the app using the links below.

  • 1.1.1.1 | Android | Google Play Store, Free
  • 1.1.1.1 | iOS | iTunes App Store, Free

There's a bit contradiction here - Initially, the report says, "The popular networking website knows the importance of privacy and how internet users are concerned in this regard may that be data breaches or the government trying to sneak into your browsing history." And later "All this is done with a simple click which makes the app act like a VPN app helping the government and ISPs to track what you're up to online." So, what's the intention, the app helps us be secured against the government's prying eyes or helping them track us?
