Reviews

  • Pros: 

    The app itself is slick and simple and makes setting up the service easy.

    Cons: 

    It may make your internet slower, be sure to test for yourself.

    I love the app itself, but enabling the 1.1.1.1 service gave me an average speed decrease of around 20% up and down. I contacted support about this (via their app) but didn't get a reply, if they respond I'll update this review.

    It's a free service so there's no harm in trying it out, but make sure you do your own testing to ensure that you are helping not harming your connection.

    TLDR; YMMV

    small app size, understandable UI

    Cons: 

    VPN doesn't really seem working, no way to choose the country

    I downloaded the app and tried to use it's VPN, tried to open some blocked websites but they weren't opened.

This is the kind of corporate responsibility I love to see: "Cloudflare will never sell your data or use it to target ads. Period.". What are your plans for the future of the network?

28% faster is pretty huge, how did you manage to reach that number?

@aaronoleary "The power of the Cloudflare network makes gives 1.1.1.1 a natural advantage in terms of delivering speedy DNS queries. Since it has been deployed on Cloudflare’s 1000+ servers worldwide, users anywhere in the world will get a quick response from 1.1.1.1; in addition to this, these servers have access to the over 7 million domains on the Cloudflare platform, making queries for those domains lightning-fast." https://www.cloudflare.com/learn... They have a lot of servers, so one of them is probably close to you, and they host a lot of domains so they don't have to go outside their network to respond back to you.

@aaronoleary @jakewesorick Wouldn't this make Google's 8.8.8.8 faster?

@aaronoleary @mordodemaru While google has a lot of servers more people host their domains on Cloudflare.

@aaronoleary @jakewesorick Is there any public data available to support that? (Not questioning the statement)
