Most home networks have dynamic IP addresses. By enabling this option to Enable Dynamic IP Updates, you allow your network to be able to have its IP address changed when your IP address changes. You must still use some software to push the change to OpenDNS however. Please consider downloading our Dynamic IP Updater below.
Where do I download it?
You can find and download the official Dynamic IP updater clients for Windows and Mac using the files attached at the bottom of the article. There are additional third-party clients and services available, but only the ones listed are supported by OpenDNS.
