#013 – DuckDuckGo – July 22, 2019

Just Google it. That’s what people say when they talk about searching for something online. Google is synonymous with search, and makes billions of dollars off of our constant curiosity.

But Google collects lots of information about you, in order to show ads to you. And for privacy advocates, that’s too high a price to pay.

Instead of Google, try DuckDuckGo.

Yes, DuckDuckGo is a silly name, but it’s certainly easy to remember. It’s been around for over a decade, and today answers over 40 million search requests every day.

DuckDuckGo doesn’t track you, and it doesn’t serve you ads. And there’s even an app that grades sites on privacy as you browse. It’s easier than you think to switch. All web browsers allow you to set your preferred search engine. You can switch from Google to DuckDuckGo, and get what you’re looking for without the extra baggage.
