Privacy, simplified.

At DuckDuckGo, we believe the Internet shouldn't feel so creepy and having the privacy you deserve online should be as simple as closing the blinds. 

We provide the privacy essentials you need to seamlessly take control of your personal information as you search and browse the web, no matter where the Internet takes you:
• Escape Advertising Tracker Networks — Our Privacy Protection will block all the hidden third-party trackers we can find, exposing the major advertising networks tracking you over time, so that you can track who's trying to track you.
• Increase Encryption Protection — We force sites to use an encrypted connection where available, protecting your data from prying eyes, like Internet Service Providers.
• Search Privately — You share your most personal information with your search engine, like your financial, medical, and political questions. What you search for is your own business, which is why DuckDuckGo search doesn't track you. Ever.
• Decode Privacy Policies — We’ve partnered with Terms of Service Didn't Read to include their scores and labels of website terms of service and privacy policies, where available. 

As you search and browse, DuckDuckGo shows you a Privacy Grade rating when you visit a website (A-F). This rating lets you see how protected you are at a glance, dig into the details to see who we caught trying to track you, and learn how we enhanced the underlying site's privacy measures. The Privacy Grade is scored automatically based on the prevalence of hidden tracker networks, encryption availability, and website privacy practices.

Our app provides standard browsing functionality including tabs, bookmarks, and autocomplete. In addition to strong Privacy Protection as described above, we also packed in some extra privacy features into the browser itself:
• Fire Button — Clear all your tabs and data with one tap.

Too many people believe you simply can’t expect privacy on the Internet. We're fighting to change that, and have made it our mission to set a new standard of trust online. Install DuckDuckGo and take back your privacy!

Reviews From google play store

Aah... DuckDuckGo. What would I do without you? Make other searching decisions as, the Web is World Wide, after all. It doesn't seem like it has been ten and a half years but, well, it has been. I found DuckDuckGo almost embarrassing to use back then. Yet, as Gooey increased its Goo, DuckDuckGo simply made more & more effective sense. Look at you now, DuckDuckGo. I am so proud of you. Currently, the best search provider on the planet. I wouldn't leave phone without it. Brava, DuckDuckGo. Brava.


So far, DDG has been great. The only quibble I have is that it overrides the Twitter links when I want them to open within the Twitter app. I had to uninstall and reinstall, then I just didn't make DDG my default. If it starts overriding again, I may have to quit using it, even though I'm pleased with the privacy aspect of using DDG rather than Chrome. Other than the one issue I've had, I love using DDG as my search. I wish I could migrate all of my contacts and calendar dates.


Have had no problems so far seems to work good. Few things I am missing having though like force zoom sometimes I can't read a page well and it won't let me zoom in more with my fingers. Also an option to disable javascript would be nice to have.


I've only just started using duckduckgo I can't really give positive answer except I like what I've experienced so far. I think too the idea of not being tracked is big plus for me. I would like to, I hope be able to extend my feedback later. I have now Installed DuckDuckGo on 2 of my mobiles. All going well I'll Install on other's, I am definitely looking for safe browser, especially knowing that it's safe makes huge difference. Pity we have to continue using Googles App's!!


The best there is. I have been using DuckDuckGo since it started and can't understand why anyone would want to use anything else. As you know it doesn't track and it also doesn't bombard with adverts. My favourite thing about this app is that it does exactly what you want. It doesn't put the highest paid advert at the top like Google, it gives you a list of what you're looking for and it is superb.


Phenomenal. It's been so easy. Not tech savvy but irritated by tracking ads (so stalkerish) on other site. DDG was recommended a while ago and I thought it would be too hard to switch. However, being able to add the browser extension and assign DDG as my default search/homepage was exactly what I needed. Once and done. Downloaded the app and use the search bar on my phone. I was sleptical but search results are quality too. Truly satisfied, thanks all!!


need improvements like a page could only be refreshed not stopped from loading also add blocker doesnt seem to work welllike it could not block adds on chia anime. if you makes adblocking more strick and provide some extra features like insite video download, then it will be a 5 star


Excellent. I love duck duck go. I feel they are a spearhead to be used against mass surveillance; its more of a shield but it doesn't sound as cool. all good. just dont pull a Google once ya get too big kk and maybe throw me a grand or 7? Only if ya get crazy big. if ya do, remember me!! lol anyway


I have no issues with this app whatsoever. I just hope that it lasts, after Darth Mickey and Google merge together. It gives me peace of mind that my information is not being taken and shared with other companies.., truly a blessing indeed.


genèrelly good.i hate the holding on to previous paģes, mostly adds, and flashing them during new searches. i often have to àbandon a whole research string and hope to find it again to get rid of this annoyance... but this is because your software is excellent for real research and not just dickin' around like most do. digging 50 to 100 pages into a subject as i did as a historian. good, clean pages lots of useful info c


This works perfectly, I thought, until App Mgr111 repeatedly shows a large amount (26mb)of DATA after I "burned it" twice. Now I wonder why the cache and data (just click on storage to see) remains after the "burning of data" It took me awhile but I'm surprised no one else has noticed the data bank they leave in their device. . This was the end of my original review that was glowing. ...I'm happier with this browser than the others I've tried. thanks developers! good job.


For starters...Who doesn't like Ducks? They are amazingly beautiful and interesting. DuckDuckGo is no exception! I like the dark mode a lot! Who doesn't like a good bbq? The ability to roast my Duck lookups over a little flame is awesome. Poof!


Privacy needs to be looked at as possesion of personal moments as if they are objects. Privacy isnt the idea of hiding something its the idea of owning it and treasuring moments of all kinds, alone in thought or with others. Everyone needs DuckDuckGo because it matters to them that privacy matters to us.


If you use google, or any other search engine/browser, you are really doing it wrong. DuckDuckGo blocks all of the trackers used to "personalize" your experience and keeps your privacy safe. You should't be using search engines that collect your informations, and sell it to advertisers. "You never know the value of privacy until you lost it"


I really like DuckDuckGo. I have even fewer problems with it than i did with FireFox. I dont have as many trackers. Industry wide trackers have gotten out of hand. I don't like government in anything, but if I did, it would be to stop trackers. But I dont want their nose in it for now.


i just hope that what you state regarding my information being private and its not collected and or shared with anyone is indeed the case. if so then a big plus over using "other" browsers!! sick of "other" browsers and how they destroyed Android in general. Sick of "big brother"!!:)


A most matter of fact browser without the politics, opinions of correctness and innuendos rammed down your throat by big 'g'. This is absolutely the best tat I have experienced in years and years. I have made DuckDuckGo my default browser with no doubts at all. Thanks!


This App is an excellent alternative too Google Search. I was sick and tired of Google intrusion into every aspect of my life and the bias they have Politically. I will use for all future searches!


It randomly freezes and closes, but I still use it as my main search engine and browser because unbiased results are important to me. It's a great browser with huge potential to rival the other main ones once it gets a bit faster and doesn't crash as much.


using DuckDuck is working just as good as PEERS, nothing will be stored or filed, i find it a big plus.However, i hate to read all the time what Google is doing with your input and history. In my opinion those are the reasons why people use DDG. otherwise it is like the cooky story and accepting. You get annoyed about it. Overall my score : just as good as the Big ones.


HOW do you call yourself a "privacy browser" when you leak webRTC? There are several other issues but this one is just ridiculous. Even with VPN, mock GPS spoofing, etc... makes no difference. You can cover all your bases but as long as you're using this browser, you WILL be easily identified. I expected more from the good people at DDG.


This has become my default browser. I like the security features and the fact I can easily purge data with one click. My only gripe at the moment is that I can't seem to find a way to back up my bookmarks?


Great App...easy to use...no infuriating cookie rubbish...and noooooo more Goooooooogggglllleeee..love it and thank you...and btw I have three ducks as pets. Sechaun, Orange and Peking...true story 😇...I've asked them very nicely and enticed them with corn for a photo, they replied Quack...without mentioning the G word...Duck speak is not available in translate ...sort it out Google....very disappointing....😁


I love this browser, especially the pre emptive tracker blocking feature. The big downside is it is constantly flagged as "out of date" by browser recommendation settings on sites I use and I am then blocked from the site. These browser recommendations are a great tool that I think is now largely being abused by the big guys to force people onto or to stay on their platforms. If Duck can fix that then I am 5 stars in and not looking back.


when a add or pop up kicks in, it opens in the current tab and the user has to go back and repeat the same loop. Can you plz help me solve this issue. other than that everything is fine and smooth


This search engine is superb. I am very happy to have made the choice to switch to DuckDuckGo. It is easy to use, very friendly, best of all I can control what I want to see and what not. No ads or tracking sites. I absolutely recommend to all people this search engine above all the other out there.


I've always been skeptical about using Chrome and even Samsung browser knowing that there really isn't much privacy browsing anymore. Now I can at least know my deleted history stays that way with duckduckgo 👍🏾👍🏾


I love the design as app. I don't need to leave a trail of information going into a database what's a good bad and ugly lives. well...ok, you can't forget the good. thanks


I finally had enough of Google and gave DuckDuckGo a try. I love it! I'm no longer barraged by ads. I no longer have to scroll through multiple pages looking for what I search. No more censorship or burying stories that don't fit the liberal agenda!


Coming from someone used to Chrome, this felt like a step down in terms of being user-friendliness. Also I hate the keyboard. I get dizzy trying to type using the dark keyboard with the watermark. In terms of privacy and security, though, it felt like a step up because I don't get tracked.


I have problems to open the page for my Nokia 6 Nougat. The link is not broken, but the page goes blank. it happens all the time. Please fix this problem. I'm switching to DuckDuckGo for good because it's less ad, easy to use & more private.


Hey, I don't know what happened to the browser but it appears to be broken. Any time I click a link, whether it's sent to me or is on another app, it won't load and gives me an error message; "Webpage not Available The webpage at (insert whatever link I select) could not be loaded because: net::ERR_CLEARTEXT_NOT_PERMITTED" How can I fix this?


I'll make it 2⭐s...when you block ads. Google is still able to pinpoint location. No full screen in Youtube. Needs better settings, options, and background play for video. Irrelevant updates with no real improvement.


Great app! Stops trackers in their tracks. App does as it promises, and that's important, no should be tracked or have thier personal info exposed to everyone, like a postcard. App could be just a little bit faster. All in all, I highly reccomend it.


I was tired of the barrage of advertisements which littered my screen and inbox because I once looked up where I could find a 3/8" washer. Also, the search algorithm doesn't filter out results based on how the mainstream wind is currently blowing. Very refreshing!


Soooooo much faster! Hits are more organic and targeted to my search, not the advertisers. AND, my every move is NOT being catalogued and sold to the highest bidder! Does that make me a BAD person?


Pretty good app but still needs work. Doesnt always put newer or most relevant results first. I like the concept though and the developers will keep on improving im sure


exceptional. However, can you guys please: 1) add zoom feature and 2) truly dark theme, right now clicking on the three dots shows a menu with white background


I'm not happy with this app. It should have the ability to save passwords even when you delete history. I also don't feel searches found enough. I kept getting pages with no results. When I checked google they had many choices. I was looking forward to leaving Google, but this isn't the app.


been using Duck Duck Go for about a year. I would never go back to Google! Since starting with the Duck the amount of pop up ads, spam and junk mail has gone way down. A couple apps wanted me to stop the ad blocker or allow them access but I found I could get by without their apps instead.
