On Chit Chat #533, Bart did a deep dive into how the Domain Name System works and in that session, he suggested a hybrid approach where your mobile devices had the improved DNS along with your home router.
It turns out it’s not possible to set system-wide DNS settings on iOS or Android. This means that the Hybrid Approach we described of setting a third-party DNS on your home router and then also hard-coding it on your mobile devices remains the best advice, but it’s not possible to do on iOS or Android devices. Annoyingly, that means there is no good solution to protect these devices 🙁. Thanks very much to Allister Jenks for drawing our attention to this in our Google Plus Community.
