Android's DNS over HTTP/3

Google announced integration of DoH for android devices. Prior to this, since Android 9.0, users could use the "Secure DNS" option to use DoT, a different implementation, for a secure resolver at their devices. Now in the latest versions of Android Secure DNS option detects if the provider have support for DoH and upgrades the connection for a faster, securer and more censorship-resistant DNS-resolving experience.


Notable Projects



  • LibRedirect is a free-software extension for major browsers (currently available for Firefox and Edge in their native stores) that redirects you to privacy-preserving alternatives for many mainstream online services such as YouTube, Reddit, Twitter, Wikipedia and more. Their GitHub repo is available here. Please note that Tor Browser developers advise not to install any additional extension into their browser, LibreWolf and Brave seem to be fine.
  • Monero Art Fund is a community effort of artists and designers who try to provide the community with the latest gorgeous designs of MoneroChan, the anime girl becoming the mascot of Monero. If you enjoyed the art, support them by donation to help them continue. We at this newsletter have had the pleasure to use their arts because we're too lazy. :)
