It’s only necessary to set up Smart DNS Proxy one time in order to use it. After you set up Smart DNS proxy, you don’t have to follow these steps. Your connection will automatically use the correct DNS settings.

It’s very simple to set up Smart DNS Proxy with most operating systems. You can set your preferred DNS to use Privado’s DNS proxy IP addresses, then it’ll be ready to go.


1. Go to your Settings screen. 

Open the main menu and click Settings or click the gear icon in your notification tray.



2.Select the Wi-Fi option under Network at the top of the screen, then select the name of the Wi-Fi network that you’re connected to.



3. Open the Network menu, then select Custom name servers from the dropdown menu in that section.



4. Change the Primary and Secondary DNS.

Set the top two name servers to the following:

Primary DNS:

Secondary DNS:



5. Click outside of the address field.

If you don’t either click outside of the second field or press the Tab button, it will only save the first DNS server when you close the window. You can now close the Settings window.



6. Restart your Computer.

We recommend that you restart your computer whenever you make any settings changes. Many computers will automatically restart when you save new settings, but just in case it’s a good idea to manually restart anyway.
