* Filtering: block ads, malware, and other unwanted content. Compatible with all DNS services
21 22 23 24 25 26 27
* Time-based filtering, with a flexible weekly schedule
* Transparent redirection of specific domains to specific resolvers
* DNS caching, to reduce latency and improve privacy
* Local IPv6 blocking to reduce latency on IPv4-only networks
* Load balancing: pick a set of resolvers, dnscrypt-proxy will automatically measure and keep track of their speed, and balance the traffic across the fastest available ones.
* Cloaking: like a `HOSTS` file on steroids, that can return preconfigured addresses for specific names, or resolve and return the IP address of other names. This can be used for local development as well as to enforce safe search results on Google, Yahoo and Bing.
* Automatic background updates of resolvers lists
28 29
* Can force outgoing connections to use TCP
* Supports SOCKS proxies
