Search Engine DuckDuckGo
The most used search engine is Google by far. Worldwide, the giant has about 90% market share. Behind it are Yahoo, Bing, Baidu and Yandex. Thus, Google has almost a monopoly position. As easy and cozy as Google is, Google is also a data octopus. Every time you surf on Google, you are tracked. IP addresses, browsers, user behavior and much more is stored, which is ultimately read and used. Google skims unlimited data and the security authorities read along.

DuckDuckGo – The search engine for more Privacy
This opens the market for more privacy-oriented search engines like DuckDuckGo. The free search engine “DuckDuckGo” enables anonymous search queries on the Internet and preserves the user’s privacy. The search engine does not store IP addresses or the browser used. The search queries are encrypted using the particularly secure Perfect Forward Secrecy method.
No personal data is collected and processed. This also means that no advertising profiles can be created for personalized ads. The metasearch engine “DuckDuckGo” generates the search results via its own web crawler “DuckDuckbot” as well as from sources such as Wikipedia, Yahoo, Yandex, Wolfram Alpha and Bing.
DuckDuckGo is available as an app for iOS and Android, as a standalone browser, or as a plugin for Firefox and other browsers. Most importantly, it has an official partnership with the Brave browser. The search engine has bundled the tracker blocker and the encryption enforcer into just one Brave extension. Thus, both of them ensure an easy way to protect privacy.
