How to setup your web browser to secure your internet connection using DNS-Over-Https. SSuite Office Article Header Image.

Protect yourself by modifying your web browser's internal security settings...

Image inserted by SSuite Office Fandango Desktop EditorBefore you start doing anything, you will need to change your DNS server settings on your network connection to the internet. Go to your network connection in the Windows Control panel and open its network properties dialog window. In the dialog window, you need to change the DNS server addresses to a server that supports encrypted connections over HTTPS.

In our example we will be changing it to CloudFlare's servers e.g. Preferred and Alternate - Below you will see what you need to change to begin...

Now that you have made the necessary changes, we will now start with your web browser's security settings in order to modify and accommodate the correct protocols.

We will be using Google Chrome, Vivaldi , Opera, and Microsoft's Edge browsers as our main examples as they are all Chromium based...

To make the changes, type in the following command in the URL editbox at the top of your browser:

Chrome://flags   -   Opera://flags   -   Edge://flags   -   Vivaldi://flags

The following page will now present itself...

Security settings for DNS-Over-HTTPS

You need to type in each of the following hash tags to find the appropriate setting:

  1. #enable-quic
  2. #enable-tls13-early-data
  3. #dns-over-https
  4. #edge-tracking-prevention, MS Edge browser ONLY!

You may be asked to restart or relaunch the browser after each setting you have changed. Unfortunately Google Chrome, Opera, and Microsoft Edge does not yet support the ESNI encryption protocol, except for FireFox which supports all the protocols. Keep checking after each browser update to see when it becomes available.

After making the appropriate changes to your browser's security settings, you must now test your web browser and see if it's working.

Click on the following link to navigate to CloudFlare's test page:

CloudFlare - Browser - Test

You should get the following results...

CloudFlare Browser Test to make sure your network connections is secure and encrypted.

Now you're mostly protected against the prying eyes of hackers and intelligence services all over the world...

...Only FireFox(for now) will be able to give you full security and encryption on your internet network connection from your browser to each and every website you visit.

But you must remember, if the website you visit does not support these protocols, then there is nothing to protect you even with all of these changes made!

SSuite Office supports all of the above security protocols... DNSSEC - TLS 1.3 - QUIC - ESNI

...with us you are completely safe and secure!
