Encrypted DNS / Secure DNS

My ISP intercepts my DNS queries, it seems standard practice on many Australian ISPs. This causes certain software to fail, as such I've had to spin up a local AdGuard Home server and direct traffic to that.

There are several protocols available, in order from oldest to newest:

  • DNSCrypt
  • DNS over TLS
  • DNS over HTTPS
  • DNS over QUIC

Currently, these local encrypted DNS servers are suitable workarounds:

  • Cloudflare Warp
  • DNSCrypt
  • AdGuard Home
  • AdGuard for Mac / iOS
  • Pi Hole
  • NextDNS for Mac / iOS

I understand though that as Eero Secure is essentially just a streamlined and integrated AdGuard Home, it would be advantageous for Eero's profits to keep users in the Eero Secure ecosystem to not discover AdGuard Home and using that as a free alternative. So incorporating encrypted/secure DNS natively would assist with preventing discovery and use of alternatives.

This request incorporates these protocol specific requests:
