DNS-Leaktest – Is my DNS leaked? (Test and Info)

Is my DNS leaked?

At the previous Test you can see, which DNS is visible for websites. It should be the one which you are wanting to use and not a different one.

This DNS test works by sending a request to fetch a dummy resource from a non-existing subdomain on our server. This is accomplished with JavaScript code. When getting such a request, our server determines and displays the nameservers being used for this request.

What is a DNS leak?

When resolving domain names to IP addresses (DNS) while using a secure connection like VPN or TOR you should always make sure that your DNS requests are sent over the encrypted tunnel instead of an open network.

If your DNS requests are sent over an unencrypted network instead, this is called a DNS leak: Even though your actual traffic (the data you send to and receive from a server) is still encrypted, your ISP is able to see to which servers you are connecting to.

Whenever anonymity is critical to you it is important that you make sure that all traffic, including DNS requests are being sent through an encrypted network.
