Tired of being tracked online? We can help. At DuckDuckGo, we believe online privacy should be simple.

DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials comes packed with best-in-class privacy essentials and makes browsing in Safari even faster.

Escape Online Tracking — automatically block hidden third-party trackers we can find lurking on websites you visit, which stops the companies behind those trackers from collecting and selling your data.
Decode Privacy — each site you visit gets a Privacy Grade (A-F) so you can see how protected you are at a glance, and you can even dig into the details to see who we caught trying to track you.

After you install our extension, you'll be asked to enable Tracker Blocking and the Privacy Dashboard within Safari. While the extension doesn't include DuckDuckGo Private Search, it is built into Safari as a default search option. Enabling all three gives you seamless privacy protection.

Privacy, simplified.

Accross all browsers and devices

As our 'big brothers' gather more than enough information about us I decided to install DuckDuck on my Mac (3 browsers) and iPad and iPhone. So at least I make it a little harder to follow me.


Switch to rating system everyone understands

A , B , C, etc. ratings don't mean much to someone from, let's say, the Netherlands. I bet the same applies to most people internationally. Maybe it would be a good idea to switch to a rating system more people can relate to.
