AdGuard DNS now supports DNSCrypt

Good news from Adguard DNS!

Instead of a regular client-server interaction protocol, Adguard DNS now allows you to use a specific encrypted protocol - DNSCrypt. Now all requests between your computer and Adguard DNS servers can be encrypted with secure elliptic curve cryptography to protect them from possible interception and subsequent eavesdropping and alteration by any intruder, even if it is your ISP. It needs a little configuration though.

When using common DNS server, requests are transferred through network without any encryption:

Now, using Adguard DNS, you will not only block ads, trackers and phishing websites, but can also protect your requests with DNSCrypt:

Creators of DNSCrypt has already added us to the list of servers that support secure protocol. To start using Adguard DNS together with DNSCrypt you will have to install a small client application and select one of our servers in the list. You can find the links to setup guide on our website.
