    Hi folks!,

    Im new to this forum. Just thought I would post details of a DNS encryption client, which many seem unaware of.

    https://simplednscrypt.org/

    Uses the OpenDns network. Much the same as DNSCrypt, but easier to use.

    Cheers.

    Nice looking GUI, will try this weekend. At the bottom of the page it is mentioned to be funded by EAM. Didn't know they do such side projects. This is one of the very few websites I have seen use both DNSSEC and TLSA.

    will using this help bypass ISP blocks on certain websites?

    Flip a coin.

    If you ISP is using DNS to block websites, then yes it will help bypass them. If your ISP isn't using DNS to block websites, then it won't help.

    If I'm using a VPN what happens? Will DNScrypt takeover?

    not enough information

    I use AirVPN and the client has a function named network lock = I can't use DNScrypt but the VPN Provider has his one DSN on each Server.
