DuckDuckGo App

DuckDuckGo App Review

A new free app from Duckduck Go offers an encouraging bit of pushback to the churning maw that is online tracking. It takes a step beyond simply private searches, and you should download it.

By this time everyone may familiar with Duckduck Go the “search engine” that doesn’t track you like others. Unlike say, Google, Duckduck Go doesn’t track you specially. Instead, it sells ads based on your search terms.

This no-track business model was and continues to be great for searching the web, but what about browsing it. That’s where the new app comes in. Download to an iOS or Android device, the app allows you to cruise around the web as you would otherwise but with some added protection.

Moves beyond the search box and protects your privacy wherever you go on the Internet, “a company spokesperson explained over email.

The biggest problem is that the results are not uniform. When we were digging through knowledge Graph features to find cool things you don’t know you could do with Google, noticed that the results were not always the same. When one person searched for Apple stocks, Google showed him regular search results, but when a colleague searched for the same term, he was shown current stock information along with a nice price versus time graph.
