Right now, I'm living in a co-living space in Paris, and using the provided internet connection.

When I visited "new" or less known sites, I was getting SSL errors. At first I thought it was a coincidence.

Then I found out that all of them were intercepted by a very invasive firewall that exists in the network.

It only got worse when I visited noip and I found out that it was blocked by the firewall because it's a dyndns service.

That's it, I'm getting a VPN. This is outrageous!

Try using Firefox or a Chromium Browser with DNS over HTTPS. That should work.

BTW, what is co-living. Sub-rent, Hostel, student housing?

@rudolf student housing 😊

Funny thing is that it blocks Cloudflare DNS too, I had to disable that to access the internet.

I use:
for DoH, with for boot if needed. Mostly you only enter the URL.
For Android, personalDNSfilter gives you systemwide DoH and adblock:
