Do you want to access blocked websites on your non-rooted Android smartphone in Bali or Indonesia? There’s an app for that!
If you own a rooted device you can also use this app, but an easier way would be to install DNS Manager instead.
If you are looking for a way to do this on a laptop or desktop computer, check out our other article on this topic.
Head over to the Google Play store and install Drony.
Open the application and swipe to the right to reach the "settings" tab. Scroll down until you see "settings for not listed networks", tap that.
Scroll down until you see DNSCrypt, make sure the box beside it is checked. This will make sure websites are unblocked when you use your mobile data.
Tap on "Edit DNSCrypt settings". To keep things fast we need to select a resolver close by. From the list of resolvers choose d0wn-sg-ns2 (it’s in Singapore).
Feel free to try different ones, they might be faster (for example d0wn-hk-ns1, which is located in Hong Kong).
Tap the save icon in the top right and go back to the settings menu.
Now click on WiFi and from the list of networks repeat step 3 and 4 for each network you’d like to unblock (this will typically be the network name of your hotel or villa)
Now swipe left until you are back at the "log" tab. Tap the button at the bottom to enable the application. Grant the app permission to set up a VPN network.
Now check the output in the log window. There should be some lines saying "addDnsServer". If you don’t see these trying turning it off and on again.
You are all done! Time to browse those "innocent" blocked websites!
You’ve just created a local VPN server that uses DNSCrypt to bypass the internet filter system. Congrats!
