This guide will show you how to disable DNS over HTTPS in your browser.

When connected to ExpressVPN, your device uses ExpressVPN’s DNS servers to run DNS queries. However, some web browsers have enabled a feature called DNS over HTTPS (DoH), which allows DNS queries to bypass ExpressVPN’s DNS servers and run outside the VPN tunnel, causing DNS leaks.

DNS over HTTPs is enabled by default in some browsers. To make sure your device uses ExpressVPN’s DNS servers, disable DNS over HTTPS in your browser.

Note: The DNS over HTTPS feature is not available on Safari and the mobile version of certain browsers.
