    Given the nature of OpenNIC being Open, are there DNS good to use for your connection to surf through for privacy and anonymity?


    THANKS

    Hi DasFox,

    The issues of privacy and anonymity are separate and distinct from DNS server use. However, if you look at the OpenNIC Public DNS Servers webpage, there are some servers that indicate the no logs are kept. Other than using one of those servers, you would need to also use a solid VPN service with serveral hops such as Xerobank or Tor, both of which encript browser client requests. The idea is that no DNS server leaks should occur whatever service you use.

    Open source software can be reviewed by all vs closed source (proprietary) cannot. Whether that in and of itself is a (good or not) reason to trust is open to debate.
