DuckDuckGo's Revamped Version Brings Private Search, Tracker Blockers, and More”

The company's mission is to develop a "use anywhere" privacy tool that combines access to its private search engine with tracker blocking and a bundle of other privacy features like automatic encryption protection, that sends a user to an encrypted version of a website.

They also have a new section dedicated to explaining oft-confusing privacy policies.

The company is now also starting a privacy rating for each website visited. In addition to blocking trackers, the updated apps and extensions will automatically load encrypted versions of websites whenever available. This rating lets users see at a glance how protected they are, dig into the details to see who was caught trying to track them, and learn how DuckDuckGo enhanced the underlying website's privacy measures.

The DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser has been downloaded millions of times across multiple platforms, and the update adds an ad network tracking blocker that prevents third-party websites from keeping tabs on your browsing habits. This grade is based on how many hidden trackers a site is deploying, whether it's encrypting your connection, and also what is the website's own privacy policy.

DuckDuckGo claims its privacy protection is more advanced than other private browsing solutions, such as incognito mode in Chrome. "That's because hardly any website out there truly prioritizes your privacy", Weinberg noted.

For the last decade, DuckDuckGo has been giving you the ability to search privately, but that privacy was only limited to our search box.

The company is moving beyond search to achieve that goal and promised that, over time, it will integrate even more features in its extension and mobile app to protect users' privacy on the internet. "While not all privacy protection can be as seamless, the essentials available today and those that we will be adding will go a long way to protecting your privacy online, without compromising your Internet experience", said DuckDuckGo in a blog post. You can even lock the app with Touch ID or Face ID!
