Google chrome has bought down a new update that can prevent an important type of communication gap that can lead to private data being dumped to internet service providers. Chrome 83 which was released on Tuesday has incorporated a new technology called DNS over HTTPS. Leading search engines such as Google, Mozilla and other allies are trying to secure our connections to websites with the HTTPS technology.
While HTTPS technologies can prevent third party outsiders from reading your emails, however, ISP’s, hotels and airports can often see your history and gain access if needed be. DOH is designed to stop snooping. While encryption was the only reserved method that was used for guarding overly sensitive communications like entered passwords or making purchases. How DOH works is simply straight forward.

Today’s DNS are not guarder in any shape or form. While that will be taken care of under the new update, DNS is not completely viable.
DOH can centralize DNS activity to particular service providers like Google or Cloudflare. Chrome 83 packs other features in their update such as “You and Google” which allows settings how chrome will sync your personal data. A reorganized “Site Settings” which will websites notify you the usage of external features such as external sound and camera.
A new puzzle piece which will let you faster access to Chrome extensions that will let you change your browsers behavior and what privileges you grant extensions.
