Tired of being tracked online? We can help. At DuckDuckGo, we believe online privacy should be simple.
DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser has the speed you need, the browsing features you expect (like tabs & bookmarks), and comes packed with best-in-class privacy essentials:
• Tap Fire Button, Burn Data — clear all your tabs and browsing data with one tap.
• 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.
• Search Privately — our private search engine comes built-in so you can search the Internet without being tracked.
• Enforce Encryption — force sites to use an encrypted (HTTPS) connection where available, protecting your data from prying eyes, like from unwanted snoopers and Internet service providers.
• 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.
• Limit Access — secure your browser with Touch ID or Face ID.

Google search is now part of the borg
All kidding aside, I have used google search since like 90s and it was always on point in searches. Something happened in last few years most recently this year it really got bad. I was no longer seeing what I know I should be finding. It could always locate those hard to find IT issues or when searching controversial things you could find things. Now in addition to not showing results (censored?) they seem to be linking a lot of viruses and malware. I think due to some type of censorship er I mean missing search results, people know how to make their results be higher in google search. I would see these strange sites ending in .it and seen others as well. They all take you to one of those redirecting virus/scam things. On the iPhone no big deal you just close it. Other systems I’m not so sure there as well protected. I was able to duplicate this behavior in different locations/networks/devices so I know it’s not some type of device or router malware. Plus I know how to check my dns, use Vpn, use multiple browsers, etc.
So in other words something is not right in Google Search land. Plus the main thing, they are not a good protector of privacy as their business model is based on advertising.
Been doing more and more search’s with duck duck and I’m beginning to like it more and more. Duck duck isn’t having those weird issues like Google plus it’s nice that Google borg isn’t getting your search results :)
Far too few people use the best browser available.
“Far too few” really means “not enough” to be sure. I rarely endorse apps and even more rare is an endorsement I make for a tech/IT/web product. I clearly and vehemently can make a case for every internet traveler to want -nay NEED to use this browser. Yes, I assume that everyone needs (and wants) to protect their privacy when on the web. I don’t think that’s a far-fetched assumption to make.
I’ve used this browser quite a bit now and after previous frustrating attempts to enhance my privacy by using other, more popular browsers’ cumbersome privacy settings, can readily say that DuckDuckGo’s offering is the most intuitive, well laid out, and quick browser I’ve used in the over 25 years I’ve been an IT professional. The browser has an almost minimalist look and feel. That doesn’t mean that it is without varied features tried-and-true and some I wished I’d had long ago.
I will be installing DuckDuckGo‘s browser on production machines at the office and clients as well. (After I verify any legality issues ($) therein of course)
I like every thing that is provided, and I am glad that the app scans questionable websites to view and inform me of the privacy practices, this can prevent my history from being aggregated and save my device from potentially developing a malicious virus that could overtake my device. And it’s rather simple as well. But I have one complaint:
I enjoy the fact that I can courageously venture into the deeper parts of the web to find information for essays, recreation etc., but I would prefer a feature that could be toggled in settings permitting the app to discourage and omit all inappropriate photographs, video, imagery, etc. In other words, I do not want pornographic images to seep into my searches with all the ambiguity in words these days. If you could design a feature to just that, it would be excellent. An even better idea, make the option to create a password as a requirement to turn off the filter, you know, just so that young children will not turn it off and encounter x-rated material. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this.
