A venture capital backed firm decides to provide "free" DNS over HTTPS and DNS over Tor services to the public and we're supposed to believe that it is to protect our privacy.

"our policy is to never, ever write client IP addresses to disk and wipe all logs within 24 hours" till the next board meeting with investors. After that we'll start collecting all domain names you visited and sell that data to our real customers.

It's an incremental step that could help in this case
