    I installed this and so far so good. I'm not experiencing any stalls or slowdowns.

    Update: BraveDNS continues to work fine on Android v10. Unlike the CloudFlare and Quad9 apps for Android this one is rock solid with no connection problems. Ad filtering works well :thumb:

    I'm continuing to have a good experience running BraveDNS on Android 10. It crashed on me once; the front end kept running but the VPN connection shutdown so there was no filtering. Restarting the app fixed it. Occasionally I'm not able to open a link - perhaps some sites don't tolerate the ad filtering? - but it's easy to turn BraveDNS off when that happens and then turn it back on.

    I still use it on Android 10. Works well except one time after manual ROM sideload and smartphone restart afterwards. Just clicked Stop inside BraveDNS and Start.

    It still exposes your ip address. Not a true vpn.
