Private dns is the tastiest part of (android) pie
Did u know that dns leaks a ton of information about your private tls (https) browsing? and that its widely used to do so? New dns protocols (DNS over HTTPS, DoH) and (DNS over TLS, DoT) can protect you from this. Earlier I showed how to do that here. Great. But what about my mobile? The one most likely to be snooped?
In Android Pie private dns is a feature, in automatic mode by default. This means the default mode of current android is to use encrypted dns to google. But, what if u want to use 126.96.36.199 from cloudflare? They don’t log or snoop your data.
well, here you go. That was easy. Your privacy and security just went way up. good job, take the rest of the morning off.
Note: since automatic is the default, a lot of things will change as this feature rolls out.
