Android 9 Pie

Android Pie supports Private DNS, which uses DNS over TLS to secure your queries. If your device runs Android 9, this is the recommended method to set up 1.1.1.1 because unlike previous versions of Android, it does not need to be configured for each new WiFi network.

Follow these steps to configure your device to use 1.1.1.1.

Step 1: Go to Settings → Network & internet → Advanced → Private DNS.

Step 2: Select the Private DNS provider hostname option.

Step 3: Enter 1dot1dot1dot1.cloudflare-dns.com and hit Save.

Step 4: Visit 1.1.1.1/help to verify DNS over TLS is enabled.
