Thanks to DuckDuckGo for sponsoring this week, I’ve been a happy user for years!

DuckDuckGo is an internet privacy company that empowers you to seamlessly take control of your personal information online, without any tradeoffs.

Over the years, DuckDuckGo has offered millions of people a private alternative to Google, serving over 16 billion anonymous searches. Today we’re taking a major step to simplify online privacy with the launch of fully revamped versions of our browser extension and mobile app, now with built-in tracker network blocking, smarter encryption, and, of course, private search – all designed to operate seamlessly together while you search and browse the web. Our updated app and extension are now available across all major platforms – FirefoxSafariChromeiOS, and Android – so that you can easily get all the privacy essentials you need on any device with just one download.

To date, cobbling together an effective privacy solution has required researching complicated technologies, installing multiple add-ons and apps on each device, and often worsening your Internet experience. Others have been unfortunately misled by supposed simple solutions. Think “Incognito” mode blocks Google from watching what you’re doing? Think again. Private browsing modes are marketed to make you think that if it’s not in your device’s browser history, it never happened. Sadly, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

With the new DuckDuckGo browser extension or mobile app, you are now able to seamlessly:

  • Expose and Block Tracker Networks Watching You.
  • Stop Creepy Ads Following You Across the Web.
  • Increase Encryption Protection Automatically.
  • Decode a Site’s Privacy Policy into a Simple Letter Score.
  • Search Privately!

As more people start taking their privacy back online, the companies who make money off our personal information will be put on more notice and we’ll collectively raise the Internet’s privacy grade, ending the widespread use of invasive tracking. True to the collective nature of this effort, we’re also building our extension and app in the open with all of the code available on GitHub, so we invite you to join us.

Install DuckDuckGo on any device to take back your privacy!
