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

I just hate searching for a product, (on ANY browser except this one) and then for next 16 freakin' weeks, been shown nothing but ads for the very thing I've already purchased. Want to avoid stuff like that??? download DDG. It's my default browser for a reason. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. Wait...I can 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 don't know how many stars that is, I didn't count, but it's a lot of freakin' stars LOL 😂🤣😂


not to shabby. Clean, fairly easy to use. The only real thing I'd like to see is going back to my home page when I'm on another site, not just my search page without hitting the back button


So far so good. No invasions of my privacy that I can tell. Activating my keyboard for a search with a window open is a problem, unless page is refreshed.


I first switched from Google to DuckDuckGo for web search purposes about a year ago, and I just started using this browser recently. The browser works, and supposedly it doesn't track me. I have no reason not to believe that. I use it for general web surfing - reading news, looking up stuff in online stores, looking up device specs, etc. I haven't started logging in to my web accounts via DuckDuckGo yet, but I can say that it's great for what I'm using it for. Thanks, and keep up the good work!


Happy to have a browser that isn't collecting on me. It needs at least 2 or 3 standard features. 1. Voice-to-text should not be the hurdle the browser makes it out to be. Devise a way to make this happen. 2. Browser should facilitate the creation of topical folders/files for bookmarks. Unsorted bookmarks are a pain in the ass. 3. Once folder/files are facilitated, a way of importing files from other browsers should be created. All in due time, one hopes.


Well for example..if curious about Great Lakes fishing techniques and locations, it is a relief not to be bombarded by fishing equipment brand promotions and resort offers..Thanks DDG


All in all a decent browser. A couple of suggestions, based on my previous experience using Google chrome. As I'm not that tech savvy, these suggestions might not be possible, considering duck duck go's privacy features. Anyway, first would be when using image search, it would be handy if, when you select an image, other suggested images related to the one you are looking at come up beneath, like they do in Chrome. 2nd: search bar within websites, sometimes fails to bring up keyboard.


You need this browser! I've known about DuckDuckGo for years but finally decided to try it and I love it. It has every feature of the popular browsers that are pre-loaded on your devices. But, I don't have to worry about data collection or my searches being tracked, saved or sold to third parties. I regret not using it sooner. Great job to the developers. Bravo!


If you're bothered about security, use this app. What bugs me about this app though is that when I search for something, specifying UK only results, it comes back with results from the US. This is not only annoying, but it means that I've got to open up a different, less secure, browser to get the relevant results I requested. It is for this reason I've lowered the star rating.


This browser gives seemingly the exact results from Google, but with a little more peace of mind that your data isn't being recorded and sold to the highest bidder. Its comforting to know that people aren't able to see me looking up vacation destinations or gifts I buy for family members, that turn into unwanted ads bombarding me. 👌🏾👌🏾 Nicely done!
