DuckDuckGo

DuckDuckGo
« Back to Glossary Index

DuckDuckGo is a search engine that allows users to browse the internet without companies being able to collect their personal data.

DuckDuckGo protects users’ privacy while they search and is increasingly becoming one of Google’s most formidable competitors. If data privacy is a significant concern for you, then DuckDuckGo may be your preferred search engine.

While it cannot completely protect you from social media trackers, government efforts, etc., to view your IP address, it is a completely anonymous search engine.

This means that users will have a blank search history each time they search for something on DuckDuckGo, as if they’ve never used the site before. In line with their strict privacy policy, they do not store any information that may allow searches to be tied back to you personally.
