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 9.9.9.9 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.
