Cloudflare is a technology company known, above all, by your network service CDN (Content Delivery Network), that allows you to protect web sites against cyber attacks. However, in recent years increasingly has focused more on the launch of services targeted to the end user: there it is your free VPN WARP already (available for smartphones and that today has announced that it will arrive also to PC and Mac), or -also free – DNS service.

This latter is the famous domain name service available on the address 1.1.1.1with the reputation of being faster than any of its rivals. But only that: apart from the privacy, does not offer any other complementary service of filter or protection. Or at least, not offered it until now.


1.1.1.2 and 1.1.1.3

And is that, today, Cloudflare has announced that, in response to the requests of many users, your service will begin to also offer anti-malware protection and antipornografía. But allowing you to choose the user.

Do you want to just speed? you can have it; can speed, and anti-malware? also; did you add to both the protection antiporno (also known as ‘1.1.1.1 For Families’)? the same. As explained by the CEO of Cloudflare, Matthew Prince,

“the requests we receive come largely from domestic users who want to ensure that they have a measure of protection against security threats, and can prevent their children accessing the adult content”.

To block this last type of websites, Cloudflare has taken the criteria used by the SafeSearch filter of Google search.

The company has also promised that, in the future, provide additional configuration optionsas white and black lists that allow or block specific web at certain times.

The new DNS service already can be configured directly on the router or, more easily, in the settings of our operating systemand the two new options of Cloudflare are of this form:

Anti-malware protection

To use IP4:

  • Primary DNS: 1.1.1.2
  • Secondary DNS: 1.0.0.2

To use IPv6:

  • Primary DNS: 2606: 4700: 4700 :: 1112
  • Secondary DNS: 2606: 4700: 4700 :: 1002

Anti-malware protection and anti-pornography

To use IP4:

  • Primary DNS: 1.1.1.3
  • Secondary DNS: 1.0.0.3

To use IPv6:

  • Primary DNS: 2606: 4700: 4700 :: 1113
  • Secondary DNS: 2606: 4700: 4700 :: 1003
