DuckDuckGo is an alternative to Google Search that does not track or store your searches. DuckDuckGo does not store any personal information, e.g. IP addresses or user agents. This means that NSA or other government agencies around the globe won’t track your searches. Most important you will not get profiled by advertising agencies. You can find out how you are tracked here. As an added bonus, it has less clutter, less spam, less ads and an overall cleaner design.
DuckDuckGo was founded by Gabriel Weinberg in February 2008 in Valley Forge, PA (USA).
By May 2012, the search engine was attracting 1.5 million searches a day. The search engine currently gets over 120 million direct queries per month and this number is rising.
I want to keep my searches private so I am switching from Google to DuckDuckGo. What are you going to do?
