How To Use WARP In Windows 10

Let’s start with a quick background of and WARP in case you are not familiar with it. is a public DNS server and WARP is LIKE the VPN that you can opt to use with the DNS resolver. Both of these are operated by Cloudflare and are meant to make your internet browsing more private and faster.

  • Fastest DNS resolver. Cloudflare claims that is the world’s fastest public DNS resolver. Several users agree to this and is also confirmed by DNSPerf. It is important to note that as any other resolvers does not magically increase your internet speed in a way that it will go over what you are subscribed to from your ISP. It makes it faster because it translates your internet requests to numeric IP addresses quicker, thus, you get results quicker or simply, the website that you are trying to access will load faster giving you a smoother browsing experience.
  • Privacy and security. gives you privacy by encrypting the requests that you are sending through your browsers so that your ISP’s will not be able to see, store or track it. Why is this important? Some ISPs don’t really care at all about your data but some may sell it to third-parties for advertisement purposes. In addition, uses query name minimization so every time you search something in your browser, they will not send everything that you input, rather, only the key details that are really needed. Cloudflare also keeps logs only for 24 hours, then purges it.
  • for families. There is a feature in the preferences where you can choose to block malware and adult content or just malware. This is great for devices that kids always use, it makes sure that they won’t have access to unpleasant contents and our devices and systems are also protected from malware attacks.
  • It’s free and doesn’t have any ads. You do not have to sign up to anything to use it. I was able to download and use it on my Windows 11 and 10 PC without any issues. It is also available for MacOS, Linux and can be downloaded from Google Play Store, App Store or directly from their website,

What is WARP?

WARP acts as a VPN which you can use with DNS resolver. While the DNS resolver secures only DNS queries, WARP safeguards all the traffic coming from your devices via encryption. WARP does not give you the anonymity like other VPNs do, but it still gives you a blanket of security, plus, the internet connection speed. with WARP is free which is already good enough for the average users. Cloudflare also has WARP+ which is on limited data plan where you get 1GB for every referal and WARP+ unlimited where you have to pay a reasonable price, both promises even faster browsing speeds than the with WARP.
