For years I'd always change my DNS for a few reasons...then in 2018 I found I could Encrypt my DNS using a program called Stubby...a very handy tool to have and have been using it ever since. Once installed Stubby runs in the background and stops anyone seeing your DNS queries.
Stubby is installed in the Terminal...enter these commands one by one...

Code:
 sudo apt update
 sudo apt install stubby -y
 sudo systemctl start stubby
 sudo systemctl enable stubby
 sudo apt install net-tools -y
 sudo netstat -lnptu | grep stubby

After Installing Stubby go to Network Connections
IPv4 – Method – Automatic (DHCP) Addresses only
DNS Servers – 127.0.0.1 and Save.

To Restart Network Manager…
Code:
sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager
Test If Stubby is Working…
Code:
sudo netstat -lnptu | grep stubby

To Uninstall Stubby…
Code:
sudo apt purge stubby
Show DNS Being Used…
Code:
sudo nmcli dev show | grep DNS

Here is the link...https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-use-dns-over-tls-on-ubuntu-linux/

These days security and privacy are very important than ever before and I think Stubby does that but it doesn't mask your IP address...so you'll need a VPN or Proxy for that...let me know what you think of Stubby.

instead of entering these two commands, one will suffice

Well that's not the way the author wrote it and I could have wrote...
Sass:
sudo apt install stubby
and skipped the rest but I didn't for a very good reason...not everyone is an expert.
