Cloudflare created 126.96.36.199 DNS to help make surfing the web faster and more private. In September 2019, they took the 188.8.131.52 service a step further with the launch of its WARP VPN for iOS and Android. WARP extended Cloudflare’s DNS service by creating an easy-to-use VPN that:
- ensures your data is secured while it’s in transit.
- keeps networks between you and the sites you visit from spying on you.
- helps protect you from hackers sniffing your data while you’re on a public Wi-Fi connection.
- keeps your internet service provider from recording browser data and selling it to advertisers.
Cloudflare just announced via email the release of beta versions of its 184.108.40.206 VPN with WARP for macOS and Windows. They were initially announced in April 2020 but weren’t made available until now.
The beta versions function similarly to the iOS and Android versions but do not support WARP+ yet. WARP+ is Cloudflare’s subscription service that leverages its Argo Smart Routing to make accessing sites even faster.
One feature that the macOS and Windows versions do have that the iOS and Android versions don’t is Cloudflare’s 220.127.116.11 for Families Malware and Adult Site Blocking. Using the Malware Blocking option will utilize the 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 DNS servers, and using the Malware and Adult Content Blocking will utilize the 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 DNS servers. Both of these options work in conjunction with the WARP VPN to secure and speed up the internet connection.
The WARP+ subscription is expected to be added once the service is out of beta. Until then, the beta is free to download and use.
