I second that
2. Get software ($$$) to prevent ransomware attacks, I use Malwarebytes 3 premium myself, there are others https://blog.malwarebytes.com/101/2016/03/how-to-beat-ransomware-prevent-dont-react/
I was happy to find out Malwarebytes still honors my lifetime license, I've installed mb3-setup-consumer-126.96.36.1993-1.0.141-1.0.2092 and as you've said it does offer a Ransomware feature - which is nice to see from the version I had used long ago without any, back then it wasn't even a term to consider more or less a threat on the horizon.I am still liking Malwarebytes 3.0 because it has a Ransomware detector which is extremely important currently, it is still slightly buggy but much better and worth a look, NO I don't sell it, I'm just a lifetime licensed user of Malwarebytes
Anyone is free to have an opinion and/or comment here (heck, I welcome it, them and all), but to lead out with an misnomer that my post wasn't complete - it is as I see it, and with regards to the logic in my advice and suggestions I have made, that I felt comfortable in giving to anyone trying to understand. No sense sending them into deep water over their heads treading the tides to see the privacy issues many Free DNS has to anyone using them.To complete Gass post - - - which can help you to understand and choose.
Any reason for a US one? As I've reported. "Most common services use anycast to ensure low-latency regardless of your geo-location."Hmmmm, what's a good, fast, non-logging third-party DNS for the US these days?
Just wondering if there's any "better" US-based DNS these days
That's a presales question(s) - correction (DNSCrypt is totally free) [donations accepted], so pre-use questions I'd ask DNSCrypt for any information - asking for a specific US based DNS list of the following point, "Paying attention to the fact that some resolvers do not support the DNS security extensions (DNSSEC)." Then of an understanding of the following.I *do* plan on getting DNSCrypt on my DD-WRT router at some point
I totally agree with you on a VPN and it's own DNS combo or package. Best deals are found on BlackFriday to a year subscription.Nice knowledge about DNS. However if someone wants to get privacy why not using a VPN provider which provides its own DNS? Anyway, you will have to use a VPN at a certain time, and if you want to make sure that the flow within the DNS is encrypted and that the provider does not keep any log, I will think it's easier to find the right service provider which ensures you full privacy and security from end to end. Does it make sense?
Again I totally agree as if it's free then - very possibly your the product (data you generate and that sold) allowing you the so called free ride. Nice to see you here againAlso, I do not believe in free services especially on security matters because there is always a catch hidden somewhere.
Personally this is what I did when I chose NordVPN which has its DNS servers.
"NordVPN native applications automatically use our NordVPN DNS servers when connected to NordVPN. This is done to prevent DNS leaks when connected, ensuring that your DNS requests are safe."
Thanks my hat don't fit my head now - ha ha !Nice knowledge about DNS
