There are many benefits to using DuckDuckGo. But as I see it, the three main benefits of DuckDuckGo are as follows:
1) Privacy – DuckDuckGo forces sites to use encryption, so all your data when you’re browsing the web is kept secure
2) Ad Blocking Technology – DuckDuckGo blocks ads. Ads are annoying, so this awesome.
3) Private Search History – DuckDuckGo doesn’t store your search history, it’s true incognito browsing, and you can also delete past sessions at the push of a button.
4) Ad Trackers – Advert retargeting is where adverts follow you all around the internet. DuckDuckGo doesn’t allow this, so you can browse the web without being chased by ads for rubbish you don’t want.
Best of All?
You can still use Chrome and Safari. You don’t have to 100% commit to DuckDuckGo; just give it a try and see what you think.
I much prefer it to Chrome and Safari on my mobile devices.
Plus, it’s 100% free.
