OpenDNS Umbrella Prosumer review | GadgetMasti

Editor’s Note: This is a summary of new additions and changes made since this review was last updated.

  • OpenDNS resolvers no longer support queries for the special ‘ANY’ query type.
  • DNS-O-Matic and Netgear dashboards now use the OpenDNS login page at https://login.opendns.com. This means that certain OpenDNS accounts that use two-factor authentication or SAML authentication can now extend the same security measures to their DNS-O-Matic and Netgear accounts.
  • OpenDNS no longer supports PayPal.
  • The service currently has 39 data centers.
  • According to DNSPerf.com, the service is consistently ranked in the top 4 in performance, with an average of approximately 18.2 ms globally for the year 2022

OpenDNS has a large portfolio of both free and commercial DNS servers (opens in new tab). After the acquisition by Cisco in 2015, the business-oriented commercial services were rebranded as Cisco Umbrella, while the home products continued under the OpenDNS name, with the exception of the premium OpenDNS Umbrella Prosumer package.
