Change your DNS servers on Android

This article is available in French and German.

You can manually configure the DNS servers in your Android settings. Here’s how:

  1. Open Settings on the device.
  2. Go to Connections and select Wi-Fi.
  3. Next to your Current network, press the cog icon and go to Advanced.
  4. Change IP settings to Static.
  5. In the DNS 1 and DNS 2 fields that appeared, enter the following:

    DNS 1: 103.86.96.100
    DNS 2: 103.86.99.100
     
  6. Press Save, disconnect from the network, and reconnect for the changes to take effect

In case your phone is using Android 9 Pie or newer, the steps will slightly differ from the ones above:

  1. As before, you need to open Settings.
  2. Head to Connections (Android 10: Connections & sharing).
  3. Locate and open Private DNS.
  4. Set it to Private DNS provider hostname, and then insert one of the two hostnames:  

    dns1.nordvpn.com
    dns2.nordvpn.com
     
  5. Now, press Save, disconnect from the current network, and reconnect to it once more in order for the changes to come into effect
