    So I just updated my 5T and now it forces google DNS on my wifi connection. Is there a way to get rid of that crap?

    Probably not without rooting. Someone else would need to confirm because I don't mess with rooting anymore.

    And why do you want to change it? Google DNS is good enough.

    DHCP provides, recent Oneplus update forces the additional one, regardless of DHCP.

    Because I want to be in control of who my devices ask for names, and because forcing a specific DNS is appalling.

    Sounds like you need a BlackBerry instead.

    I think one should use the right tool for the right job. That's all.

    I would generally assume that you're just an idiot (nothing personal, just this place...), but you at least give the appearance of someone who knows what they're talking about.

    Not being in possession of a recent OP device I can't test for myself, but I agree 100% that no company should be forcing network config settings on me, be it OP, Google, Microsoft or anyone else.

    That being said, I'm not sure how practical that even is any more - one way or another, some shitty corporation is trying to elbow themselves in there somewhere. I'm VPN'd out the wazoo and back again, but I don't believe for a second that I'm not traceable if someone really wanted to.

    Did you check your private DNS setting?
    I've set mine to personally...
    Works well...

    The tool was changed, and to something worse.

    Private DNS is set to off. I'm using pi hole as local DNS, for ad blocking, so setting it static would mean that it won't work outside of my network.

    Solution until a fix is out, has been to block in my firewall. In just two days a total of 18.000 blocked attempts of accessing

    Maybe instead of just complaining to other users, go complaint to OnePlus directly instead.

    This problem seems to be linked to Pie and not specifically to OP.
    Failure to resolve is very bad and one should not rely on one DNS as it become the single point of failure.
    While Google might want to solve potential connectivity issues, they also expose their users to unwanted leaks (or even bugs for those who prefer a fail safe strategy with specific internal DNS relaying).

    Without at least an option to disable it, this seems like a buggy and weird choice.
    I even wonder if this is legal in some parts of the world.

    Meanwhile, as workaround, I'd suggest having a second DNS or use static IP settings.

    So what's the purpose of this forum? By your mind it has no purpose.. brilliant.

    Also instead of making an *** of yourself and assuming I haven't contacted OnePlus, just ask if I have.. I actually have.. and as always is their customer support useless and answers something completely different than what was asked.

    Hey. You don't have to be rude about it, alright? I know you are frustrated but being rude to other wouldn't get you anywhere. I only assumed because 99.999999995% of people creating a thread on there didn't even bother asking OnePlus first. Let alone know the difference between user forum and the feedback forum. It is also on you not stating that up front about what you have done about it (including contacting OnePlus).

    As @PokiX said, it might be an Android P problem in general. So, this would fall under Google's issue.

    I believe it is your network settings or software that sets the dns. My phone is on pie and dns is not Google. I mean, why no one cover the issue on this part yet? It apparently is not OnePlus that controls your setting...
