Protect Your Family with Free Secure DNS Servers
Secure DNS servers can be a handy alternative to the DNS servers automatically provided by your ISP. DNS servers that advertise themselves as free generally have additional filter settings that allow you to easily restrict certain content types, websites, search results, and more.
What’s the Benefit of a Secure DNS Server?
The primary benefit of using secure DNS servers, particularly when additional filtering is available and enabled, is that it can protect your entire network, not just a single device. To achieve this broad protection, you simply need to update the DNS Server settings in your network’s router, which is used to provide the DNS servers for the devices on your network.
The list below contains DNS providers that all have a free offering for domestic use. However, even their paid version are relatively low cost and can bring some big functionality improvements.

Google has been providing free access to its global DNS servers for years, and although Google does not advertise these as “Secure DNS”, they’re still a worthy option if you simply want to switch to a fast and free alternative.
