DNS Leaks on Windows

 

Fix the DNS Leaks on Windows While Manually Setting up the VPN

 
When you are connected to FastestVPN, you are actually connected to our DNS servers in place of your internet service provider’s DNS. Thus, all the traffic between your system and FastestVPN DNS servers is encrypted, providing you with complete DNS leaks protection.

It is recommended to setup VPN via FastestVPN Windows App to avoid DNS leaks. Moreover, Ikev2 and UDP are recommended protocols.

Sometimes after connecting to VPN, it could happen that your Windows operating system revert you back to your internet service provider’s DNS. To verify if your VPN connection is leaking DNS, there are several websites such as ipleak.net or dnsleaktest.com

One of the common reasons of DNS leaks is that you’ve setup VPN manually, via any other method instead of FastestVPN client.

In order to avoid DNS leaks in that case, please follow these steps.

Step #1: Type in ncpa.cpl in Start Menu search and press “Enter”. It will open your “Network Connections”
