Google cybersecurity unit “Jigsaw” has rolled out a new application called “Intra” to the Google Play Store to protect users from Domain Name System (DNS) manipulation attacks, the media reported on Monday.

DNS is the phonebook of the Internet from where users access information online through domain names. It translates domain names to IP addresses so browsers can load Internet resources.

“DNS manipulation attack is used to block access to news sites, social media platforms and messaging apps, says Jigsaw, and this new application is expected to prevent that,” Android Headlines reported.

“Intra” is also expected to protect users against phishing and malware attacks.

The app also comes with no limit on data usage and does not slow down the Internet connection.

Google says it will start charging smartphone makers to pre-install apps like Gmail, YouTube and Google Maps on Android handsets sold in Europe, in response to a record $5 billion EU antitrust fine.

The U.S. tech company’s announcement Tuesday is a change from its previous business model, in which it let phone makers install its suite of popular mobile apps for free on phones running its Android operating system.

It’s among measures the company is taking to comply with the July ruling by EU authorities that found Google allegedly abused the dominance of Android to stifle competitors, even as it appeals the decision.
