There is now a new method of consumers and businesses to ensure that they are safe online . The Quad9 Domain Name System(DNS) service helps protect users from accessing millions of malicious internet sites known to steal personal information ,infect users with ransomware and malware ,or conduct fraudulent activity. The service does not store,correlate or otherwise leverage any personally identifiable information of users. In contrast, other DNS services often capture information about the websites consumers visit , devices they use and where they live ,for marketing of other purposes . This has been launched by IBM Security , Packet clearing house and the Global Cyber Alliance. “Users simply need to reconfigure a single setting on their devices to use 184.108.40.206 as their DNS server”, said a statement from IBM security . Full instructions on what a DNS service does and how to switch to Quad9 can be found at https://quad9.net.
