Iphone 'Privacy Warning' message

Message 4 of 4

Hi

 

My wife and my iPhones (running iOS 15.0.2) recently started showing a message 'Privacy Warning - This network is blocking encrypted DNS traffic ...'.

 

Our HG 635 router has wireless encryption settings: security mode = WPA2-PSK, encryption = AES. The setting: enable AP isolation is unchecked. I have rebooted the router and power cycled the phones but no change.

 

This seems to be guidance rather than an error as we have not noticed problems with Internet connectivity. Can we safely ignore the message or should we do something?

 

Thanks, Jon

Many thanks Ferguson.

 

Actually, when I 'forgot this network'  and 'joined' it again the warning message disappeared. Sorry, should have tried this before, as well as the power cycling.

This has been widely discussed before, so long as you are using the highest WPA2 security settings on your router the message can be safely ignored.
