DNS-over-HTTPS support added to Chrome for Android

It became known that the developers from Google began to deploy support for DNS-over-HTTPS in their own browser Chrome 85 for the Android software platform. Previously, a similar feature called Secure DNS appeared in the company’s desktop version of the browser.


Recall that the DNS-over-HTTPS protocol provides a higher level of privacy and security for users when using the Internet. This feature is reported to be enabled by default in Chrome 85. This will automatically switch your browser to DNS-over-HTTPS if your DNS provider supports this feature. If necessary, users will be able to independently configure this mode in accordance with the current parameters or completely disable it in the settings menu.

The developers note that Chrome will automatically disable Secure DNS ” if it detects a managed environment based on one or more corporate policies .” The ability to modify feature settings has been added: ” to allow the configuration of Secure DNS and to encourage IT administrators to explore how they can deploy DNS-over-HTTPS for their users .”

As with the desktop version of Chrome, Secure DNS for Android will roll out gradually. This will ensure the proper level of stability and performance. If you want to use DNS-over-HTTPS, but this feature is not yet available, obviously, you will have to wait a while until the Chrome 85 installed on your device receives the corresponding update.
