Even if you encrypt your traffic with HTTPS or even use a VPN, in some cases, your DNS traffic remains open and readily readable to your ISP and the rest of the world. That might not sound like a lot, but it's a major privacy concern. DNS resolves the sites you visit, so reading your DNS records can easily tell the story of your browsing habits.

DNSCrypt encrypts your DNS traffic automatically and sends it to DNS servers that also use encryption. This way, the entire transaction remains encrypted throughout. Not even your ISP will be able to see where you're browsing. DNSCrypt is actually one of the easiest services that you can set up on Linux, so there's really no reason not to use it.
