    Several experts, companies, and national entities have voiced very convincing concerns about DoH and its features. What is your opinion on DoH?

    The DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) protocol is not the privacy panacea that many have been advocating in recent months.

    If we are to listen to networking and cybersecurity experts, the protocol is somewhat useless and causes more problems than it fixes, and criticism has been mounting against DoH and those promoting it as a viable privacy-preserving method.

    The TL;DR is that most experts think DoH is not good, and people should be focusing their efforts on implementing better ways to encrypt DNS traffic -- such as DNS-over-TLS -- rather than DoH.
