Windows 10 leaking DNS requests


#1

Even when public DNS is entered into Network adapter settings it is still leaking dns information. Any ideas?

What do you mean by “leaking DNS information”?

With windows 8.1 after changing the DNS settings to a defined DNS address using a public DNS server such as 8888 and 8844, in the internet protocol 4 settings the only DNS information was not available at all testing with dnsleak.net. With windows 10 the public DNS servers are listed. My IP is not as I use a VPN. And none of the DNS IP’s listed are mine so it is not a big deal. Just wondering why the difference.

you should use a VPN provider that has dns leak protection feature such as, for instance, cyberghost http://www.review-vpn.com/cyberghost-vpn/
