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:

    We really need DOT/DOH asap. Keeping it for your own purposes is a bit weak. allow users to access it.

    Would love to use encrypted Adgaurd Personal DNS to setup on my eero router through the app. For right now you have to link your ip address to use regular dns.

    This really does need to be implemented as soon as possible.

    It's interesting that in 2023, a feature critical to customer security and privacy is behind a $100 paywall.


    I currently recommend Eero to friends and family as they work well with little to no fuss -- but if features that can be implemented with free, open source software are going to be locked behind a paywall, the eero 6 generation will be the last I use.
