Fing and Quad Nine DNS (9.9.9.9)

I recently changed my DNS server to 9.9.9.9 for protection against malware sites, and my Fing stopped responding (Orange lights and "Disconnected" on the App). I am assuming that 9.9.9.9 is flagging the Fing calling back to its servers as a risk. Has anyone else had this problem or can check to see if they get the same results?

    Unfortunately, I do not have a Fingbox. However, until someone else responds, Quad9, also, offers an "unsecured" DNS service. Try changing your DNS IP Address from 9.9.9.9 to 9.9.9.10, just to check. If your Fingbox starts working/responding again, then, you know it could be due to a "false positive", or Quad9 believing one of the Fing servers is a "malware site". Hope this helps.

    I was able to get it working. It looks like my router just did not take the correct DNS even though it showed it was 9.9.9.9. I reset it and put back the 9.9.9.9 and it worked. Thanks for responding.
