By far, the greatest alternative to Google.

  • Anonymous search, with no tracking.
  • !Bangs (keywords with special functions).
  • Search engine powered with 400 different sources.

Everyone knows that DuckDuckGo runs on Amazon servers in the United States and partnered with Yahoo. Why should we trust them?

Not as good as Google, unfortunately.

Not as good as Google's search engine but trustworthy regarding security.

I have tested DDG, the search engine and browser, and did not find it functionally correct to say it does not track user activity, nor sell that information, and it does not have any noticeable methods for obscuring your information from prying eyes, so much as we can tell from bouncing the traffic through our own server jungle, but without access to the source, I am limited to only being able to say in truth that a very unskilled hacker can retrieve your search strings, and this is a real issue. If a software company can sell you a service paid by, sponsored by, other companies that does the absolute minimum to accomplish what their ads profess the app to do... Then is the service for the user at all? Or is it really serving the big-data community in a different manner? Please consider the implications of this, as I fear this is to become a trend. Please someone help develop a peer-reviewed testing platform because people who know who I work for keep offering me obscene amounts of money to make comments such as these in the favor of a product for exactly the wrong reasons, because the product does for them something the public and the end-users doesn't yet know about.

Awful people. Awful company. Search for Bucha DuckDuckGo incident. In short: they lied about war in Ukraine and hidden massacres and mass kills done by russians in Ukraine to hide the facts of the war crimes. Fully russian sponsored awful company.

Has started its own censorship. Relies on non-free software such as Apple Maps instead of OSM. With it's end of partnership with Yandex will probably be just a shell for Bing results. As a long-time, DDG user, I should say I had to emigrate from it.
