Firefox began the rollout of encrypted DNS over HTTPS (DoH) by default for US-based users, in the coming weeks, Mozilla has confirmed with a blog post today.

Encrypted DNS over HTTPS (DoH):

Switching to Encrypted DNS over HTTPS is intended to help make your web browsing experience more private and more secure. This is because based on the way the internet has been designed, while websites themselves might be encrypted, the actual lookup for the domain name isn’t. This means that your ISP will know the websites that you are visiting.
Encrypted DNS is a database that links a human-friendly name, such as www.mozilla.org, to a computer-friendly series of numbers, called an IP address (e.g. 192.0.2.1). By performing a “lookup” in this database, your web browser is able to find websites on your behalf. Because of how DNS was originally designed decades ago, browsers doing DNS lookups for websites- even encrypted https:// sites -had to perform these lookups without encryption. Mozilla added to its blog post.
However, by Switching to Encrypted DNS over HTTPS, your browsing sessions on Firefox will become even more private because even the domain name lookups will be encrypted. This means that even your ISPs have no idea which websites you are visiting. While not necessarily the best way of protecting your privacy online, by enabling it by default, it will help users who might otherwise be clueless about these things.
Whenever you visit a website (ex. www.techapis.in) even if it’s HTTPS-enabled- the DNS query that converts the web address into an IP address that computers can read is usually unencrypted. DNS-over-HTTPS, or DoH, encrypts the request so that it can’t be intercepted or hijacked in order to send a user to a malicious site.
These unencrypted DNS queries can also be used to snoop on which websites a user visits.

Firefox enabled DoH by default only in the US users. If you’re outside of the US and would like to enable DoH, to do so by simply going to;
Settings> General >Networking Settings >click the Settings button on the right >enable DNS over HTTPS by clicking
a checkbox will appear, by default, this change will send your encrypted DNS requests to Cloudflare.
Mozilla provided the option to choose between two providers- Cloudflare and NextDNS-both of which are trusted resolvers for Mozilla. Go to Settings, then General, then scroll down to Network Settings and click the Settings button on the right. From there, go to Enable DNS over HTTPS, then use the pull-down menu to select the provider as your resolver.
Automatic privacy is enabled by Mozilla. Download Firefox to block over 2000 trackers. Get the latest Firefox browser here
