How do I use CONTROLD?To start using Control D, you need to change just one setting on any device you want to use it on - this setting is your device's DNS server. We'll guide you through how to do that after you get started, or you can take a peek at our knowledge base. Once you've changed this setting, your device will utilize your Control D profile whenever you're using the internet.
What is DNS?
Think of it like Google Maps. You type in a name of a restaurant you want to go to, and it gives you the street address of the restaurant. A DNS server does the same thing, except the street address is an IP address of the website you're trying to reach.
What is a proxy?
Sticking with the food analogy, instead of going to the restaurant, you can order food through an app. A person will go get the food on your behalf and bring it to you. The restaurant has no idea who you are or where you live. A proxy does exactly that, but for websites.
Packed with features, there's nothing else like it.
