The DuckDuckGo Browser will bring you privacy, simplified. The people from DuckDuckGo really believe that the Internet shouldn’t feel so creepy, and that you should get the privacy you deserve online. Best of all, they think that this fact should be as simple as closing the blinds.
This helpful app will provide you the privacy essentials that you need to seamlessly take control over your personal information as you search and browse the web, no matter where the Internet should take you:
- Decode Privacy Policies — the app partnered with Terms of Service Didn’t Read to include their scores and labels of website terms of service and privacy policies, where available.
- Increase Encryption Protection — DuckDuckGo forces sites to use an encrypted connection where available, protecting your data from prying eyes, like ISPs.
- Escape Advertising Tracker Networks — the browser’s Privacy Protection will block all the hidden third-party trackers that it can find, exposing the major advertising networks tracking you over time, so that you can track who’s trying to track you.
- 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 ever track you.
As you continue to search and browse, the DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser will show you a Privacy Grade rating when you visit a website (from A to F). This rating allows you to see how protected you are at just a glance, learn how we enhanced the underlying site’s privacy measures, and dig into the details to see who we caught trying to track you. The Privacy Grade is scored automatically based on the prevalence of hidden tracker networks, encryption availability, and website privacy practices.
