What is a DNS leak? The domain name server (DNS) is responsible for resolving domain names such as perfect-privacy.com into actual IP addresses to connect to. The easiest way to test for a DNS leak is to go to www.dnsleaktest.com and run a free test. It will tell you your device's IP address and your rough location. You should run two tests, one before you activate your VPN service and one after, to ensure that your online privacy is protected. If you are testing for DNS leaks on sites like dnsleaktest.com, ipleak.net or dnsleak.com and it shows you that there is a DNS leak (especially on the last one), it usually does not actually mean that there is a DNS leak.

Mace2 said. I was expecting 8.8.8.8 to resolve via DOH and a DNS leak test would only show Googles DNS 8.8.8.8. I don't know how the leak test page works.

When I do a leak test from dnsleaktest.com with Chrome browser I get two servers: 144.202.86.201 dns-edge-usa-west-seattle.cleanbrowsing.org. Choopa, LLC Seattle, United States 147.75.68.129 None Packet Host Parsippany, United States. I was only expecting one… the first one. Is the second server part of cleanbrowsing?

As a second check against DNS leaks go to DNSLeakTest.com, and from the landing page choose the Extended test. This typically takes some time to complete, but it's worth it as I have seen leaky If you are using windows. I found it to be a windows issue not SE. SE doesn't seem to override the DNS like other VPN apps do. I connect to multi NordVPN servers via the built in Windows VPN client using IKEv2 and it also reveals my local DNS.

A dirty secret about the privacy tools industry: most VPNs leak! A detailed research piece from CSIRO found that 84% of free VPNs for Android leaked the users' IP address.. Another study from the top10VPN.com, involving the testing of 150 free VPN apps with over 260M installs on Google Play, revealed 25% suffer with DNS leaks and 85% What does DNS mean? The Domain Name System (DNS) is the reason why browsing the internet is so quick and simple. Its job is resolving domain names such as "nordvpn.com" into actual IP addresses. In other words, it translates the long, complex numeric names of web servers into human language, and the other way around. Mace2 said.
