Under certain conditions, even when connected to the anonymous network like a vpn, the operating system will continue to use its default DNS servers instead of the anonymous DNS servers assigned to your computer by the anonymous network. This is called a leak. DNS leaks are a major privacy threat since the anonymous network may be providing a false sense of security while private data is leaking.
Why should I care?
When your DNS requests are leaked, no actual data sent to / from websites is captured. But it can still give an eavesdropper enough information about what websites you are visiting. It also opens door for DNS poisoning which can be used for phishing attacks.
What can I do?
AllSafeVPN provides a service without any kind of leaks, especially on Windows and Linux OS which are very well known to have DNS leaks. AllSafeVPN also perfectly masks your real IP.
