Cloudflare For Families Blocks Malware And Adult Content


Almost exactly two years ago, Cloudflare launched its own public DNS service with claims to being privacy-focused, fast, and secure. Last year, the company expanded this service to mobile devices with WARP. And this year, Cloudflare is expanding its coverage not just for routing and locating Internet addresses but also keeping families safe by blocking unwanted content from their home networks.

As we all know, Cloudflare has its public DNS set by default. And now, to provide secure DNS to families to block malware and adult content, .1.1.1 for Families consists of two other different sets of DNS, configured slightly differently from one another instead of changing the existing DNS. 

Out of these two different sets of DNS, one set blocks malware, where the primary DNS is and the secondary being The second set blocks both malware and adult content, with the primary and secondary DNS being and, respectively.

The company also announced that it will offer some additional configuration settings under the for Families. With those new DNS configurations, Cloudflare will bring options like setting specific whitelists and blacklists for websites, as well as set times of a day when they are blocked. However, the company didn’t disclose its plans for how these features will work. 

But for now, if you have need of what for Families provide, then you could give these new Cloudflare DNS a try. It will serve them over a secure connection where no adult or abusive contents will be seen.
