Cloudflare with Warp+: Should You Use It?

Written by Hassan Abbas

Cloudflare with Warp+: How you’ve come to know it works when you are on your phone? Everything you do on the internet is done using numbers. DNS servers translate these numbers to addresses but we think that the phonebook lets you browse through the internet.

DNS records are expanded across several servers around the globe. What you might not know is that as you type, several machines are checking and converting the information into numbers and connect you to the internet.

One such nameserver is Cloudflare. It’s recent with WARP+ service faster than your original internet connection, helps re-route your internet traffic, something even VPN services haven’t achieved yet.

Cloudflare Warp+

Cloudflare’s with WARP+ replaces the connection between your phone and the Internet with a new protocol that encrypts the data leaving your phone. Warp creates from Cloudflare’s application which when released was an alternative DNS service. WARP+ and WARP are functionality inside the app that acts as a VPN but is not like any other VPN service available until now.


DNS stands for “Domain Name System”. It translates domain names to IP addresses that allow browser to load web pages and content. Essentially, DNS converts a hostname into an IP address. If you typed a web address and waited for the page to load, the time that you’re waiting for the page to load up is for the systems to process through the many DNS records.


VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It sends or receives data between two points in an encrypted way. It’s a service where devices can reroute the internet through another computer or server that’s located on a part of the world. When enabled, it’ll prevent attackers from prying into networks and access your internet traffic.

Warp+ is thus a VPN for non-technical people. As it provides an encrypted DNS, encrypted tunnel, which connects you to the Cloudflare servers that are closest to the website you’re accessing.
