How to fix DNS leaks

Your VPN may be leaking DNS traffic for a number of reasons. Fortunately, there are some simple ways to fix the most common problems behind DNS leaks.

First, DNS leaks can be false positives. If you have manually set your device's DNS to a DNS belonging to a third-party service (such as Google), you can ignore this result. To double check, use our DNS server test to find out which DNS servers your device is using.

Alternatively, many VPNs only offer inadequate DNS leak protection. The most effective way to fix DNS leaks is to choose a trusted VPN service that maintains its own zero-log DNS servers.

The VPN should force all traffic through these first-party servers rather than any third-party alternatives. expressVPN and NordVPN are just two of the many excellent VPNs that run their own DNS servers.

If you do not want to switch VPN providers, you will need to use a third party DNS server, such as Google Public DNS or OpenDNS, to allow your requests to pass through the VPN rather than coming directly from the local network.
