  • Privacy: Unlike many other DNS services, Quad9 makes use of aggregated data, but by design does not store, correlate or otherwise employ any personally identifiable information (PII). Quad9 does not and never will share any of its data with marketers, nor will it use this data for demographic analysis.
  • Security: Quad9 makes security a chief priority to deliver superior protection against cybercrime networks and malware, integrating security analysis from individual machines’ DNS queries to global trends.

  • Ease of use: Administrators can easily configure endpoint devices to point to the Quad9 DNS server at address
