Set-up cloudfared as a proxy, still "You may not be using secure DNS."

Hi community,

hope that you can help me. I am using my Raspberry Pi 4 as a pi-hole and DNS resolver. Pi-hole works great, by itself works great too but I would like to get the whole nine yards and use DNSSEC and Secure DNS with it too.

DNSSEC is working but it looks Iike I cannot get Secure DNS to work, as the test always shows You may not be using secure DNS.

I have Cloudflare running on of my Raspberry on port 5053, the DNS resolver gets forwarded from 53 to 5053 for the proxy set-up according to cloudflared (DoH) - Pi-hole documentation and test done on Safari on MacOS Big Sur:

I added the requested logs and some, can you please help me figure out what could be wrong? Thanks!

As I cannot post the logs (“Only four links for new members.”) and there seems to be no way to attach the logs I add them bit by bit and on request:

dig @ -p 5053
