How to access hosts file?



  • I am following https://www.modmy.com/how-modify-hosts-file-your-android-device to modify the hosts file (map IPs to names) and it says it is under /system/etc. When I went into my Android file browser, I did not find that directory. Is it because the phone is not rooted and how can I access that file?



  • You can try using an app like Hosts Go that doesn't require root and allows you to set custom host entries.

    The app is available from Google Play.
