In a few weeks Firefox will start the by-default rollout of DNS over HTTPS or DoH for short to its Canadian users in partnership with local DoH provider CIRA the Canadian Internet Registration Authority. DoH will first become a default for 1 of Canadian Firefox users on July 20 and will gradually reach 100 of Canadian Firefox users in late September 2021 8211 thereby further increasing their security and privacy online. This follows the by-default rollout of DoH to US users in February 2020.nbsp.
As part of the rollout CIRA joins Mozillas Trusted Recursive Resolver TRR Program and becomes the first internet registration authority and the first Canadian organization to provide Canadian Firefox users with private and secure encrypted Domain Name System DNS services.
8220Unencrypted DNS is a major privacy issue and part of the legacy of the old insecure Internet. We8217re very excited to be able to partner with CIRA to help fix that for our Canadian users and protect more of their browsing history by default.8221.
