Complete guide to DNS filtering in GoodAccess

GoodAccess runs its own DNS infrastructure that handles all DNS resolutions for every connected client. It incorporates a DNS filter called Threat Blocker, which is offered as part of a larger security package called Secure Shield.

The GoodAccess Threat Blocker combines open-source and commercial lists of malicious domains (malware, ransomware, phishing, botnet C&C, spammers), and checks every DNS request against these lists. When a match is found, Threat Blocker redirects the user to a safe website that informs them that an attempt to access a malicious domain was blocked.

Our lists contain around 5 million domains and are updated every 6 hours.
