    Introducing 1.1.1.1 for Families

    The easiest way to add a layer of protection to your home network and protect it from malware and adult content

    Last Updated: 02 Apr 2020 at 10:14
    Two years ago today we announced 1.1.1.1, a secure, fast, privacy-first DNS resolver free for anyone to use. In those two years, 1.1.1.1 has grown beyond our wildest imagination. Today, we process more than 200 billion DNS requests per day making us the second largest public DNS resolver in the world behind only Google.



    Yesterday, we announced the results of the 1.1.1.1 privacy examination. Cloudflare's business has never involved selling user data or targeted advertising, so it was easy for us to commit to strong privacy protections for 1.1.1.1. We've also led the way supporting encrypted DNS technologies including DNS over TLS and DNS over HTTPS. It is long past time to stop transmitting DNS in plaintext and we're excited that we see more and more encrypted DNS traffic every day.

    1.1.1.1 for Families



    Since launching 1.1.1.1, the number one request we have received is to provide a version of the product that automatically filters out bad sites. While 1.1.1.1 can safeguard user privacy and optimize efficiency, it is designed for direct, fast DNS resolution, not for blocking or filtering content. The requests weve received largely come from home users who want to ensure that they have a measure of protection from security threats and can keep adult content from being accessed by their kids. Today, we're happy to answer those requests.



    Introducing 1.1.1.1 for Families the easiest way to add a layer of protection to your home network and protect it from malware and adult content. 1.1.1.1 for Families leverages Cloudflare's global network to ensure that it is fast and secure around the world. And it includes the same strong privacy guarantees that we committed to when we launched 1.1.1.1 two years ago. And, just like 1.1.1.1, we're providing it for free and its for any home anywhere in the world.



    Two Flavors: 1.1.1.2 (No Malware) & 1.1.1.3 (No Malware or Adult Content)



    1.1.1.1 for Families is easy to set up and install, requiring just changing two numbers in the settings of your home devices or network router: your primary DNS and your secondary DNS. Setting up 1.1.1.1 for Families usually takes less than a minute and we've provided instructions for common devices and routers through the installation guide.

    1.1.1.1 for Families has two default options: one that blocks malware and the other that blocks malware and adult content. You choose which setting you want depending on which IP address you configure.

    Secondary DNS: 1.0.0.3

    For IPv6 use:

    Malware Blocking Only
    Primary DNS: 2606:4700:4700::1112
    Secondary DNS: 2606:4700:4700::1002

    Malware and Adult Content
    Primary DNS: 2606:4700:4700::1113
    Secondary DNS: 2606:4700:4700::1003

    Additional Configuration



    In the coming months, we will provide the ability to define additional configuration settings for 1.1.1.1 for Families. This will include options to create specific whitelists and blacklists of certain sites. You will be able to set the times of the day when categories, such as social media, are blocked and get reports on your household's Internet usage.

    1.1.1.1 for Families is built on top of the same site categorization and filtering technology that powers Cloudflare's Gateway product. With the success of Gateway, we wanted to provide an easy-to-use service that can help any home network be fast, reliable, secure, and protected from potentially harmful content.

    Hi there
    seems to work OK unless you use TOR --which connects but slower

    BUT only IPV4 !!!! they must surely have IPV6 addresses available too.

    I prefer the GOOGLE public one's ==> as I use IPV6 these days as do a load of ISP's now.

    Cheers

    Does this have to be set on the router, or can it be used on individual machines?

    Hi there
    It's normally primary / secondary DNS settings on the router.

    For some reason I can't get my Netgear router to use ipv6. In the router settings it says Router's IPv6 Address on WAN not available. I know this use to work. I checked for a firmware update for the router but it's using the latest update.
