Search The Internet For Free Without Being Tracked

The DuckDuckGo web app is a search engine that searches the internet without tracking what you are looking at. If you feel that your searching habits are being tracked so that people may try to sell to you or manipulate you then try this private search engine.

Search Intelligently Without Being Tracked

The DuckDuckGo search engine doesn't collect data on its users. The search engine is not simply a web scraper program with a server. It is a growing and evolving program that the development community are working to make smarter and more sophisticated. The company is probably trying to make money with advertising but they do not yet have enough users to pay the sort of money that other search engines are making. However the search engine has been in business since 2008 and it is still going so there is a chance it will do okay because it would have disappeared already if it were terrible.

Conclusion - A Fantastic Way Of Maintaining Your Privacy

The DuckDuckGo search engine is probably the most secure and private way to search the internet without being tracked. It is free to use and it is only beaten by using private paid software for dark web surfing and/or some sort of VPN. On the security side the program is great but in terms of search capabilities it is still lagging behind Google.

PROS

  • A very private way to view websites without being tracked
  • Get what you want with fewer clicks
  • They have a large community of developers

CONS

  • Google provides better search engine answers
  • You have to download the program to make the search engine work
  • The global team isn't really very 'global' yet
