DNS over HTTPS with Firefox

Posted by

Asked the other day, was it possible to browse using DNS over HTTPS for added security. The only answer is yes.

Open Preferences/Options/Settings (varies with Firefox version) and navigate to the bottom and find Network Settings, then click on the Settings… button.


Scroll down and you will see a checkbox Enable DNS over HTTPS. Check this box and use one of the two presets or custom like me who uses OpenDNS.

Note: Depending on your location on our little planet, some services maybe faster than others. Please test and use the one best for you.
