How to enable DNS OVER HTTPS in Microsoft Edge?


DNS OVER HTTPS (DoH) can increase your security and privacy on the Internet, but in Microsoft Edge the feature is turned off by default:

1. Type "edge: // flags # dns-over-https" in the address bar.
2. Press "Enter."
3. Click on "Default".
4. Select "Enabled".
5. Restart the browser.

It is recommended that you use DNS servers that support DoH. For instance:
- Google DNS - 8.8.8.8 / 8.8.4.4
- Cloudflare DNS - 1.1.1.1 / 1.0.0.1
- Quad9 - 9.9.9.9 / 149.112.112.112
- CleanBrowsing - 185.228.168.168 / 185.228.169.168
- Adguard - 176.103.130.130 /
176.103.130.131

After these steps, if DNS with DoH support is used in the system or router settings, then connection to HTTPS sites will be through the specified DNS.
