How To Use 1.1.1.1 w/ WARP App And Cloudflare Gateway To Protect Your Phone From Security Threats

Cloudflare Gateway protects users and devices from security threats. You can now use Gateway inside the 1.1.1.1 w/ WARP app to secure your phone from malware, phishing and other security threats.

The 1.1.1.1 w/ WARP app has secured millions of mobile Internet connections. When installed, 1.1.1.1 w/ WARP encrypts the traffic leaving your device, giving you a more private browsing experience.

Starting today, you can get even more out of your 1.1.1.1 w/ WARP. By adding Cloudflare Gateway’s secure DNS filtering to the app, you can add a layer of security and block malicious domains flagged as phishing, command and control, or spam. This protection isn’t dependent on what network you’re connected to – it follows you everywhere you go.

You can read more about how Cloudflare Gateway builds on our 1.1.1.1 resolver to secure Internet connections in our announcement. Ready to get started bringing that security to your mobile device? Follow the steps below.
