How to Enable DNS Over HTTPS in Firefox

DNS over HTTPS (DoH) helps protect your privacy and security online by encrypting DNS queries. Mozilla will automatically enable DoH for some Firefox users, but only if they live in the U.S.—and it may take a few weeks to roll out. Here’s how all Firefox users can enable it today.

To enable DoH, click the three horizontal bars in the top-right corner of Firefox and then select the “Options” button. (Click “Preferences” if you’re on macOS.)

How to Enable DNS Over HTTPS in Google Chrome

Google Chrome supports DNS over HTTPS (DoH) for increased privacy and security. It’s still disabled by default as of Google Chrome 80, but you can enable it using a hidden flag.

Note that Chrome won’t actually use DoH unless you’re configured to use a DNS server that supports DNS over HTTPS. You might have to change your DNS server to take advantage of it. Google Public DNS, Cloudflare, and even Comcast’s DNS all support it.
