The search engine DuckDuckGo was founded in 2008 in Pennsylvania by brothers Gabriel and Scott A. Templeton. The name of the search engine is based on the children’s game duck, duck, goose. The idea was to make a search engine that offered users a good experience while keeping their data private. Compared to Google, the results of DuckDuckGo are less thorough but more accurate. This is because when you search on Google you could also receive spam and adverts in your search results.
DuckDuckGo offers private search engine services that enable people to search the internet anonymously without leaving footprints. Users are not required to register or provide personal information to use any of the features provided by this search engine. Users may choose whether or not to share personal information with the search engine when they use it to perform a search. However, this does not adversely affect the search results since users can still use all of the features of the search engine without sharing their personal information. DuckDuckGo does not track users’ searches, IP addresses, browser history, or other personal information. They do not use retargeting ads, personalized price feeds, or any other form of dynamic pricing in their advertising either, making their search results more transparent than those of other ad-based search engines . By default, DuckDuckGo filters out ads and other content that is deemed untrustworthy or irrelevant to users’ queries. Users can choose whether or not to construct their searches specifically for advertisements as well as select specific content areas they wish to receive as part of their searches.
The true power of DuckDuckGo comes from its community of developers who have created hundreds of add-ons and extensions that enhance the functionality and capabilities of the browser version of the search engine. These add-ons and extensions are supported by an active developer community and are regularly updated with new features and improvements.
