Jigsaw has come out with a new application called Intra, available on the Google Play Store which protects users from Domain name system attacks. DNS is the phonebook of the Internet and users can get information online through domain names. It translates domain names into IP addresses , where browsers can load internet resources.
The Android headlines reported, “DNS manipulation attack is used to block access to news sites, social media platforms and messaging applications”, says Jigsaw, and this new application is expected to prevent such attacks. “Intra” is also expected to protect users against phishing and malware attacks. There is also no data limit usage on the application and neither does it slow down the internet connection. It is an open source application and the firm claims that users’ data will be kept private.
