Microsoft joins Google and Mozilla in adopting DNS over HTTPS data security protocol

LDS Silver badge

Just any Windows Home system will use by default MS DoH provider... if anybody thought MS would have let all those juicy data to Google was wrong. Expect Apple to be the next one.

Anyway DoH is designed to bypass routers - you need to fingerprint the original requester, Intermediate resolvers and caches are bad for tracking and profiling (sure, you can set up a intermediate resolver with DoH too - it's just complex enough to ensure most users won't).

That's why HTTP instead of just encrypting the DNS request (as in DoT) - HTTP carries far more data useful for fingerprinting.
