Possibly stupid question: Is this still a problem with https?
There should "only" be metadata visible to the provider and potential adversaries or am I missing something here?
There are many services that your pc might be using. Not just https.
For example.... One email client, a chat service, or any other app that uses a protocol different from http / https.
Ah, of course. I just thought about web browsing...
DNS queries, unless using something such as DoT or DoH, are plaintext. Their answers, too.
