Google is under an anti-trust probe over a new Internet Protocol that could give the tech giant an unfair competitive advantage, the media reported.
The US House Judiciary Committee is investigating Google’s plans to implement DNS-over-HTTPS in Chrome, a new standard that aims to improve Internet privacy and security by encryption, reports the Wall Street Journal.
Google plans to begin testing the new protocol — that aims to stop hackers’ ability to target websites — with users of its Chrome browser next month.
“House investigators are worried this would give the Internet giant an unfair advantage by denying access to users’ data,” the report added.
