The first thing you can do is change your DNS server settings. You can find out how to do this by going to the DNS tab in your Avast settings and selecting a different DNS server from the drop-down menu.
Another thing you can do is use a VPN. This will encrypt all of your traffic so that Avast (or any other program) won’t be able to see what websites you’re visiting or what data you’re sending and receiving.
There are many different VPNs available, so make sure to do some research to find one that’s right for you. We recommend using Mullvad or NordVPN.
Finally, if you don’t want to use a VPN, you can try connecting through Tor. This will route your traffic through multiple layers of encryption so that it’s virtually impossible for anyone to track what you’re doing online.
One of the most common questions we get asked is: how do I hide my IP address from my VPN? The answer is actually quite simple: by using a public DNS server.
When you connect to a VPN, your computer will usually default to using the DNS servers provided by your ISP. This means that even though your traffic is encrypted and routed through a secure tunnel, your ISP can still see which websites you’re accessing. They may not be able to see what content you’re viewing, but they can still see which websites you’re visiting.
To prevent this from happening, simply change your DNS settings to use a public DNS server such as 184.108.40.206 (Google Public DNS) or 1.1 .1 (Cloudflare). Doing this will route all of your traffic through the VPN’s encryption while also ensuring that your ISP can’t see which websites you’re visiting.
