    With Corona virus spreading, more folks are forced to work remotely from home. As such it's critical to secure your home network so you can safely work from home. Cloudflare two months ago released Cloudflare for Teams which consists of Cloudflare Access and Cloudflare Gateway - which is feature well suited as a first step to securing your remote work environment.

    Cloudflare Gateway allows your local/home networks' DNS configuration to be secured and encrypted and allows for DNS filtering. Cloudflare Gateway supports DNS over HTTPS today and will also support DNS over TLS in the future :)

    How Cloudflare Gateway differs from Cloudflare public DNS resolvers 1.1.1.1/1.0.0.1
    Example for my Cloudflare Gateway setup for one my home networks from initial onboarding setup to actual DNS usage.

    Once Cloudflare Gateway DNS is setup on home local network, you will see your network's DNS queries being tracked and recorded on Cloudflare Gateway overview dashboard.

    You can then create and assign Gateway policies to filter DNS traffic. Example of blocking DNS queries by security threat categories.
