Increased state surveillance, wide spread concern regarding data sharing and countless security breaches have spooked many of us into the desire to protect our privacy. DuckDuckGo is a search engine that is being built secretly under the radar for almost nine years however it has found its stride in the current climate.
What is DuckDuckGo
How is it distinct from other search engines?
Whenever you click on links such as Google and Bing even on private mode then you will realize that the search terms are sent to the site that you are visiting in the HTTP referrer header. Once you get to visit that site the computer automatically shares the information such as your IP address and this kind of information can be used to identify you. DuckDuckGo offers an encrypted version that automatically changes the links from various major sites to the point of encrypted versions including Twitter, Facebook, Wikipedia and Amazon.
Availability of Tor?
The best way to prevent search leakage is through the use of search proxy. DuckDuckGo operates a so-called Tor exit enclave which aims at getting end-to-end anonymous and encrypted searching. All you need to do is enter proxy domain into the DuckDuckGo and it will automatically route you through a proxy but proxies can be slow especially the free proxies which are funded by advertising.
How do they make money?
As much as most of the websites and search engines collect the data from you to sell to other advertisers, DuckDuckGo takes a very different approach which is the use of keywords. For example, whenever you type in mortgage you get a mortgage ad, if you type in car you get a car ad.
Do they give information to police?
DuckDuckGo doesn’t receive law enforcement requests because they do not receive data request. The law enforcement officials understand that DuckDuckGo doesn’t collect information from clients hence they have nothing to offer them. Most of the laws are about turning the existing business records and they do not have any necessary records to turn to. DuckDuckGo may be just one of those competitors that is rivaling google. Incase you are looking for privacy then you are in the right place. The search engine has a lot more to offer.
