DuckDuckGo : The Search Engine that Doesn't Track You

DuckDuckGo is a general purpose search engine that is intended to be your starting place when searching the Internet. Use it to get way more instant answers, way less spam and real privacy, which we believe adds up to a much better overall search experience.

Join the millions who are choosing a better search experience.

DuckDuckGo has everything you expect a search engine to have, including images, news and places, all while respecting your privacy. Great results without tracking you. That’s DuckDuckGo in a nutshell.

Instant Answers for every situation. Music, weather and recipes to name a few.

Instant Answers help you find what you’re looking for in fewer clicks. Everything from a stopwatch for your workout to finding movies with Chuck Norris can be found without leaving your search engine! You can even develop your own.

INFORMATION NOT COLLECTED

When you search at DuckDuckGo, we don’t know who you are and there is no way to tie your searches together.

When you access DuckDuckGo (or any Web site), your Web browser automatically sends information about your computer, e.g. your User agent and IP address.

Because this information could be used to link you to your searches, we do not log (store) it at all. This is a very unusual practice, but we feel it is an important step to protect your privacy.

Web-users who want to protect their privacy have been switching to a small unheard of search engine in the wake of the ‘Prism’ revelations.

DuckDuckGo, the little known U.S. company, sets itself aside from its giant competitors such as Google and Yahoo, by not sharing any of its clients’ data with searched websites. This means no targeted advertising and no skewed search results.

It is unusual for a few reasons. First, most server software auto-stores this information, so you have to go out of your way not to store it. Second, most businesses want to keep as much information as possible because they don’t know when it will be useful. Third, many search engines actively use this information, for example to show you more targeted advertising.
