Nebulo uses the VPN API of the Android system to create a dummy VPN which intercepts all packets for the dns servers of your device. This dummy VPN is __not__ a real VPN and does not tunnel your packets - it only handles dns packets. As only one VPN can be activate at any given time you have to decice between using Nebulo or a real VPN.
## Non-VPN mode
Since 1.4.0 Nebulo can run without requiring the dummy VPN. In this mode Nebulo hosts a DNS server locally, which forwards all DNS queries it receives according to the settings you configured in Nebulo.<br>
In this mode you manually have to forward all the DNS queries your decice creates to Nebulos local DNS server (normally this is what the dummy VPN is used for).<br>
If your device is rooted Nebulo has an inbuilt solution using `iptables`. If it isn't rooted you have to use third-party apps which are able to forward the DNS queries to Nebulo.
Known third-party apps this works with are NetGuard and V2Ray (although there might be others). You can find instructions on how to configure these apps to work together with Nebulo in the settings.<br>
Please note that the App exclusion setting inside the general category won't have any effect in non-VPN mode. You have to configure excluded apps inside the third-party app you are using.
Look in the [FAQ](FAQ.md).
## What this is based on
Nebulo is a completely original piece of software. It doesn't use any other dependency under the hood for the dns capabilities. Check the [dependencies](https://git.frostnerd.com/PublicAndroidApps/smokescreen/blob/master/app/build.gradle#L100) to see what is used for everything build around DoH/DoT.

Requesting your support: the app is getting closer to a proper release but it's still missing an important aspect: translations.
Translations are important to reach as broad of an audience as possible and for non-english speakers to be able to use the app to it's full extent.
