'Stubby' is an application that acts as a local DNS Privacy stub resolver (using DNS-over-TLS). Stubby encrypts DNS queries sent from a client machine (desktop or laptop) to a DNS Privacy resolver increasing end user privacy.

Stubby is developed by the getdns project.

For more background and FAQ see our About Stubby page. Stubby is in the early stages of development but is suitable for technical/advanced users. A more generally user-friendly version is on the way!
