The software could hide users’ web history from ISPs in future.

Android may hide users’ browsing histories in future, according to reports.

Possible support for DNS (domain name server) over TLS, as reported by Xda-developers, would mean developers can switch the feature on and off under Developer Options. When enabled, the feature would prevent a DNS from logging or seeing what websites a user visits.

Xda spotted several new commits to the Android repository suggesting Google’s Android team may support the feature, though no timeline is given.

But the publication predicted that if such a feature is being added to the Developer Options, then it may arrive in a future version of Android.

TLS, the Transport Layer Security, helps encrypt user traffic, and while it doesn’t allow users to be fully anonymous, it does allow them to hide DNS requests from ISPs.
