What is DNS over HTTPS?

In 2016, an innovative experimental protocol — DNS over HTTPS — was launched. On June 26, 2019, in its blog about security, Google announced general availability for DoH service.

How Chrome and Firefox are adopting DoH

Recently, both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox have declared the integration of DNS encryption using DNS over HTTPS. On September 6, 2019, Mozilla announced an important step to make this service the default in one of the future releases of its browser. Just four days later, on September 10, 2019, Chromium developers announced the same decision regarding their company.

Final thoughts

To sum up, DNS over HTTPS is an important measure of improving user safety on the Internet. First, the DoH protocol doesn’t let other users, service providers, or third parties view which websites you visit and collect data.
