Cloudflare DoH (DNS over HTTPS)
Currently all DNS queries are being queried over normal HTTP that can be intercepted and the hacker/scammer can then respond with a different IP address, misleading you to a clone of the original website that the hacker owns.
This can be avoided by installing Cloudflare's own app,
cloudflared, on your machine to route all your DNS queries over HTTPS which is secure and can't be altered. It's also a lot faster!
This is a guide on how to install
cloudflared to query Cloudflare's DNS server over an HTTPS connection.
- Install Homebrew if you don't have it
