It’s only necessary to set up Smart DNS Proxy one time in order to use it. After you set up Smart DNS proxy, you don’t have to follow these steps. Your connection will automatically use the correct DNS settings.

--- --- ---

It’s very simple to set up Smart DNS Proxy with most routers and modems. You can set your preferred DNS to use Privado’s DNS proxy IP addresses, then it’ll be ready to go.

1. Open AirPort Utility app on your Mac. 

This can be found using Mac Spotlight, or in the Applications>Utilities folder.





2. Select your device from the list on the left and type your password.

Click the Edit button to open the password window.

Your default password should be “public” or you might have to use your Base Station password. 

When you find and enter the correct credentials, you’ll be in the router dashboard.




3. Open the Internet tab.





4. Change the Primary and Secondary DNS.

Set Primary and Secondary Server to the following:

Primary DNS Server:

Secondary DNS Server:




5. Click the Update button.





6. Restart your Router.

We recommend that you restart your router whenever you make any settings changes. Many routers will automatically restart when you save new settings, but just in case it’s a good idea to manually restart anyway.
