Why do I need to block Public DNS Lookups?

Some services have begun using forced DNS lookups to Google and other public DNS servers that are hardcoded in the apps and devices. This effectively bypasses any DNS servers setup by you or your ISP which means Smart DNS services such as Unblockall will not work. In order for Unblockall to be able to work, your services have to use Unblockall server to resolve domain names. The only way to get around this issue is by setting up static routes or other methods to block your device from accessing Google, and other public DNS servers from supported routers.
