Privacy, simplified. One super-charged app, four types of privacy protection.

Tired of being tracked online? We can help.

DuckDuckGo is the all-in-one privacy app that helps protect your online activities. With one download you get a new everyday browser that offers seamless protections from third-party trackers while you search and browse, and even access to tracking protections when receiving email. With DuckDuckGo, privacy can be your default.

• Search Privately - DuckDuckGo Private Search comes built-in so you can search the web without being tracked.

• Escape Website Tracking - Tracker Radar automatically blocks hidden third-party trackers we can find lurking on websites you visit in DuckDuckGo, which stops the companies behind those trackers from collecting and selling your data.

• Enforce Encryption - Smarter Encryption forces sites you visit in DuckDuckGo to use an encrypted (HTTPS) connection where available, protecting your data from prying eyes.

• Block Email Trackers - 70% of emails track you as soon as you open them. Enabling Email Protection is the easy way to block email trackers and hide your address without switching services. Join the private waitlist for the free beta version through the app settings menu.

The DuckDuckGo app has the browsing features you expect, like tabs and bookmarks, plus privacy controls you'll love. Taking control of your privacy doesn't have to mean making tradeoffs.

• Tap Fire Button, Burn Data - Clear your tabs and browsing data with one tap of the Fire Button.

• Signal Your Privacy Preference with GPC - Built into the app, Global Privacy Control (GPC) intends to help you express your legal opt-out rights automatically. This will tell websites not to sell or share your personal information under future legal frameworks (e.g., CCPA, GDPR) in various states or countries.

You don't need to wait to take back your privacy. Join the millions of people using DuckDuckGo and protect many of your everyday online activities with one app. It's privacy, simplified.

Love this app

I love this app!! I was shocked to see the companies that were trying to track me when I went onto my different sites (uni portal/ shopping websites)
It drives me nuts that websites don’t let you browse without wanting to “add cookies” and track your every move! I never accept them but it is hard to get around sometimes.
On here you see little symbols at the top of the page of the companies trying to track you, then you see a line through them to show they’ve been blocked.
I don’t even use Facebook so was disgusted to see they were trying to track me. I was really irritated because I don’t use “social” media for a reason, so why they are tracking clothing and uni websites ... I don’t know.
I’ve told my partner about it and he’s downloaded the app and I’m going to keep raving about it to everyone. Privacy is so important to me and I’m glad there’s finally an app that protects my info.

Go woke go broke #DuckDuckGo I go on Search engines to search not for opinions

I have 30,000 followers on social media platforms I am pushing them to delete DuckDuckgo You have become a woke lefty organisation. The very reason I switched to your browser Let me ask you a question… You see that there is a global monopoly which censorssearch results on the internet, and you see that scoresof people are complaining about this, so much so that politicians are beginning to take notice. Being the industrious go-getter that you are, you decide to do something about it and start your own search engine which emphasizes uncensored search results and privacy from 3rd party ads. Against all odds, your search engine takes off to much fanfare; people love the uncensored search results, and they really like not seeing all those pesky advertisements too…. Trending: UPDATE: Did We Find Fauci? Then just as quickly as lightning strikes, a petrodollar war breaks out, and you decide to royally screw yourself by getting on Twitter and announcing that you are going to do the exact same thing that global monopoly did—censor results. Doesn’t make any sense does it? Yet this is exactly what Gabriel Weinberg, the founder of DuckDuckGo, just did in a series of tweets. Weinberg was met with scores of people disavowing his product and his company, and if you don’t believe me just click on his Tweets and read the comments—none of them are positive.

Developer Response ,

Privacy is our priority, not supporting any particular point of view. We don't evaluate individual stories and like all search engines, lower quality sites are placed further down the results page for a more useful search experience. This isn't censorship, it's just search rankings.

Unlike other search engines, though, we don't alter search results based on someone's previous search history. In fact, since we don't track our users we don't have any search histories at all. This means DuckDuckGo helps you escape the search “filter bubble”. However, this does not mean our search results are generally "unfiltered" because no search engine can provide results that are truly "unfiltered". That's because by definition a search engine's job is to filter results down from millions to a ranked order of just a handful.

I have only just switched to DuckDuckGo as I read an article about google an what they can actually see an do an watch it sickened me at the thought of google being able to access just on me one person, the amount of info they have alone on myself is scary I don’t like that thought.. my daughter for a very long time has told me to be very careful with what I say an do through my phone? I was more concerned for my daughter thinking she was acting very cautious sometimes paranoid as she would turn her phone of when getting undressed or if she wanted to speak to me about something private her phone would be switched of but now after finding out what google can access just of myself my daughter isn’t the one that’s being to cautious.. I’ve noticed that everything an anything I talk about with my friends or something I listen to on the tv will for sure show up on my phone at some point that makes me think it was just a coincidence but it’s actually not there’s no such thing as a coincidence!! This made me want to switch over from google to DuckDuckGo...
