Change the DNS Settings in your Asus ROG Phone
The DNS or Domain Name System act like a phonebook of the internet. Each computer connected to the internet has a numerical address. Since it’s difficult to memorize these numbers, DNS works by allowing you to connect to websites by typing its name instead of number.
When you connect your phone to a particular Wi-Fi network it will be using the default DNS that’s being used by the ISP. Sometimes this can be slow to load certain websites or can record your queries and share them with third parties. To prevent issues such as this from happening you can switch to a trusted DNS such as the public DNS of Google. Here’s how to do it.
Using Google Public DNS on your ROG Phone 3
One of the best DNS you can use in your phone is the Google Public DNS. It’s free, safe, and secure. Make sure that your phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network before proceeding with these steps.
Time needed: 5 minutes.
