Chrome Management on MacOS
If you are deploying the DOH/DOT instance via Mosyle on managed devices you need to be aware of some limitations with Chrome management.
Mosyle is aware of this, but when you first deploy it won’t affect the Chrome browser (browser will ignore the DOT/DOH implementation). You can fix this by contacting Mosyle directly.
They have the ability to create a new profile that takes advantage of the Chrome Management policies they don’t have readily available in their interface.
