DuckDuckGo is an independent internet privacy company that aims to make getting privacy simple and accessible for everyone. Our free web browser for iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows lets you search and browse the web, but –– unlike Google Search and Chrome –– we don’t track your searches or browsing history, and we block other companies from trying to track you, all by default.

Our browser comes with seamless privacy protection built-in, including private search, tracker blocking, increased encryption, email protection, and more. Our private search engine is also independently accessible at and as a built-in option in other popular browsers.

All of our products are backed by the same, straightforward Privacy Policy: We don’t track you.
