Simple DNSCrypt
Encrypt and secure your DNS traffic

Devised by OpenDNS, DNSCrypt is a technology which encrypts traffic between your computer and supported DNS servers. This makes it more difficult for others to snoop on your activities, spoof DNS services or use various man-in-the-middle attacks.

Simple DNSCrypt is an open-source front end which allows viewing and configuring the system with the absolute minimum of hassle.

On launch the program displays your installed network adapters and default DNS resolver details.

At a minimum, all you have to do is click the adapters where you'd like to use DNSCrypt, and click "Primary DNSCrypt Service" to turn the service on.

As a quick check, we ran NirSoft's DNSQuerySniffer on the same adapter: it picked up traffic at first, but stopped as soon as Simple DNSCrypt was enabled.

If you'd like to tune the service further there are lots of extras to explore, including an option to use your computer as a resolver for other devices (smartphones etc).

Verdict:

Simple DNSCrypt is an excellent DNSCrypt front end, supremely easy to use but also giving access to many underlying features.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.20

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
