DuckDuckGo Private Browser for Positive User Reviews

Duck Duck GoI love being able to search facts, rumours, news items, spelling, etc without being labelled as being a supporter of the group or beliefs on which I have sought information, and without being bombarded with related advertising & suggested links.Version: 7.65.2

REALLY DISAPPOINTEDDear DuckDuckGo, I am, after searching and reading your article about Google, and it been a tracking company using all its algorithms, which was frightening but trying to get your app to load is even more frightening, because it just doesn’t do anything, so why is that happening after all you said? I tried your app a few months ago and now i know why i deleted your app. I want too use your app , but it just nothing for me, and I guess I will have to take my chances with Google., taking as many precautions as possible, such as only turning off my location services etc..Version: 7.61.3

Love the simplicity & privacySearches are reliably great and it’s so uncluttered and easy to use. Love their approach to privacy and doesn’t feel like I’ve had to compromise at all..Version: 7.15.1

FantasticThis app is absolutely awesome I can read anime or anything or go into anything I want now without me getting switched over to another site coz of ads.. it’s better than my safari website I use.. this app just stops and blocks all ads on websites I’ve used so far. I’m rating this a 5 star for sure..Version: 7.69.2

Excellent app, improving all the timeThank you DDG 🫶 for this excellent app and all you do. This app keeps getting better, and the auto cookie complete is a godsend. Every time it handles those PITA cookie pop ups, I raise a smile. Third party companies based around the world that I have never heard of have absolutely no business collecting, tracking, selling, misusing my internet activity, so when I see pre-ticked legitimate interest boxes, it really makes my blood boil; especially when there are 100’s of them and the service provider makes it as difficult as possible to opt-out by not providing a bulk opt-out button. That’s against everything GDPR stands for in principle and they abuse their privilege everyday with millions of victims. DuckDuckGo makes a stand and they should be proud for standing up for us all. Well done..Version: 7.81.0

Peace of mindI feel relieved since I browse with DuckDuck, I am not always worried about these people tracking and taking sensible info from me and my kids. Thanks DuckDuckGO for the peace of mind! You are Pionner and the best!!.Version: 7.101.0

You don’t have to GoogleI’ve used DuckDuckGo for several years. It’s a perfectly good search engine which does pretty much exactly the same as Google, and is equally easy to use, but without the gross invasion of personal privacy which is the price of using Google. My only reservation is the name, which doesn’t exactly trip off the tongue. (Google has become a verb. Can’t imagine anyone saying “I DuckDuckGoed it”.) But in all important respects it’s great.Version: 7.65.2

Good alternativeI really like DuckDuckGo as I have a feeling Google is already watching every move I make..Version: 7.13.0

FeedbackI love the pop up hints and progress reports from DDG when I access a site! Thank you..Version: 7.72.5

Good to exploreI read about this search engine in an article in the Christian newspaper I get called Evangelicals Now. In it the author said he used Duck Duck so I thought I’d give it a try. I like the fact it seems independent and free from all sorts of information sharing and tracking on the search engine I was using. So far it has delivered the answers I have sought thought I did once have to rewrite the question to make it clearer what I was looking for. It feels good to be ever so slightly freer of a big tech giant!.Version: 7.62.1

AwesomeIt appears to do what it says. With privacy issues today, nice that the big players are being prevented in being able to track your web footprint..Version: 7.64.7

Google censors information - DuckDuckGo protects youThis is a million times better than google, because there’s no bias to what you’re searching for. If you’re ever looking to do your own research without filters, this is the only search engine you should use..Version: 7.64.12

AlanReally simple no tracking and easy to delete history.Version: 7.65.7

Awesome, just a suggestion thoughHas a cool dark theme. I like that we can browse privately on iOS. However it operates slower than Safari. I've already switched DuckDuckGo as my default search engine in Safari. Please fix the lag. I'll still give 5 stars for the concept, and wish you all the best in the future! Hopefully you surpass Yahoo, Microsoft, Facebook and Google, in terms of Market Share :D.Version: 7.14.2

DuckDuckGo .Just starting to use this search engine. Really liking it so far..Version: 7.103.0

Privacy metrics are great!I’ve been blind for a couple years. I’ve been writing and reporting bad political decisions cents 2015. I’ve been doing this on Facebook. Since I’m blind, I use things like voice to text. I was using the Facebook application on my Apple iPhone. My actual texts were being partially deleted while I was editing voice mistakes. I could be working on the first line and part of the third line with disappear, sometimes specific words for disappear making the sentence look or cost me to look ignorant or foolish. I start using DuckDuckGo and the problem My actual texts were being partially deleted while I was editing voice mistakes. I could be working on the first line and part of the third line with disappear, sometimes specific words for disappear making the sentence look or cost me to look ignorant or foolish. I deleted the Facebook app and start using DuckDuckGo and the problem completely disappeared..Version: 7.67.2

Stops facebook google spying on youShows how much google and facebook etc spies and influences you use it..Version: 7.54.0

Practical and PrivateI’ve started using this web browser, and I’ve found it very useful over the course of time. I believe it’s private as it says, and with the addition of clearing all history + the Face ID/Touch ID implements. I highly recommend this to anyone to would like a safe and secure browser for daily functions. I applaud the developers for creating a protected browser, which I will use for years to come. 10/10.Version: 7.23.0

Because privacy mattersI’ve been a DDG user for many years and would encourage any one who cares about privacy to use it. There are credible alternatives to the almighty Google and using DDG is very efficient. Just the answers you need and none of tracking. Thanks Gabe and all the team at DDG..Version: 7.21.0

Duck Duck Search EngineI was looking for privacy while searching the Web installed different filters trying to stop being bombarded with adds and emails that didn’t work adds and emails continued, a friend told me she was using Duck Duck Go and was very impressed, I looked up Duck Duck Go and installed it since installed I have not been being tracked and had the annoying adds and emails. Thanks Duck Duck Go. I recommend anyone to install Duck Duck Go if you want privacy..Version: 7.61.13

Someone called you ‘woke’ - badge of honour, I’m in.Anyone saying something is ‘woke’ means it as an insult, I think understanding that this is a technical product protecting your privacy from people flogging your data as a ‘commodity’ completely robotically, and it must have some ‘steer’ to it’s filtering is important. Does offer to block cookies on my ipad pro m1. Does work. Woke’s fine. The opposite it turns out, is not ‘asleep’ but often over-sensitive to other people’s issues, the complainer doesn’t even get affected by, most of the time. So, count me in. Woke as…! Take care, fellow awakees..Version: 7.68.8

Simply the bestThe best browser for your privacy and security!.Version: 7.72.4

Unplug from the matrixLook you won’t know how much you love this app until you just go ahead and get it. Your eyes will be opened to how much other web browsers are exposing you to adds and tracking your online presence to modify your behaviour and away towards buying. Search engines shouldn’t come at the cost of having your behaviour tracked and modified by conglomerate companies. Just get the app and you’ll notice how much freer you feel in the end..Version: 7.67.6

Peaceful internet browsingI was becoming overwhelmed with being bombarded with ads and pop ups, and I hated that I could see my previous browsing history on another website trying to sell me the very thing I have just bought or left behind. DuckDuckGo has really changed this for me and for those of you that don’t remember the internet of the past with no ads and pop ups: this is the closest you’ll get to it. Very quiet internet browsing and my desktop is performing better too. It is alarming the amount of information that is harvested from you. On my desktop, DuckDuckGo identified circa 12k tracking attempts in one week. TWELVE THOUSAND. and those are the cookies the browser could stop. You just know some of them slip through the net. But at least we have a chance now..Version: 7.84.0

This is the best search engine ever, period.This is the best search engine ever, period. Things that google blocks can be viewed with this browser and search engine. I will never use google ever again. Everyone needs to change and come to the world of freedom to view what ever you want. They don’t block conservative views that’s for sure but they are fair they also don’t block liberal views..Version: 7.16.1

Faithful CustomerI have used DDG for 13+ years and just getting around to rating this superb search engine. I have tried several others but quickly turned back to DDG as the only reliable simple to use product that I trust. I’ve raved to family, friends and acquaintances about about switching to DDG for protection and increased security of their personal information. Ironically only an Apple supervisor level customer service representative is the only person I know is as faithful and appreciative of DDG as myself. That mystifies and gratifies me so now when I tout DDG every chance I get, I will tag in that little piece to press the point. I follow the struggles DDG the greatest protector of our privacy takes on against the greatest offender of our privacy, “G” - no need to spell it out we all know who that is. God bless DDG and all working with them! May you be rewarded and victorious in your recent legal battle in the courts on behalf of all DDG subscribers..Version: 7.90.1

Great BrowserIt is a very neat almost ad free experience however if I had one issue then it would be the inability to jump back a number of pages. I think both Safari and Chrome will allow you, if you hold the back arrow down, a pop up of the many previous pages and allow you to select where to go to. This browser has you tapping the back arrow and at times it gets stuck. If this option could be implemented then it be a great addition..Version: 7.61.8

FabulousI’ve been using DuckDuckGo for a month. I’m fussy about privacy & it’s FAB. Even with Apple’s g8 iOS system security DDgo offers me much needed peace of mind b/c I fundamentally believe if U want to use my personal data then pay me. It’s well designed, has a clean, easy to use/intuitive layout and keeps you safe from the dangers of having “the world at ur fingertips” via the Internet. Highly recommended. Can’t say enough positives..Version: 7.18.3

A casual users perspectiveSlightly better than the stock browser functionality, this doesn’t automatically swap to your new tabs, or looks a little nicer, and the privacy seems to be much better. The mass window close function is handy. Needs a “night” mode that makes webpages at least a very dark grey instead of white. But then everything does, doesn’t it?.Version: 7.9.1

Great overallThis is a great app to use and would recommend to anyone with A WIFI CONNECTION SO FAST IT IS AS FAST AS THE SPEED OF LIGHT. Seriously, searching on this app is slow. But it is better if you make it the default search engine in Firefox or Safari..Version: 7.1.0

Better than Google!Ok, that’s subjective. There’s pros and cons to each search engine; the major drawback of Google, for me anyway, is that everything is tracked everywhere. They’re constantly collecting information about you and building a profile on you. I’m not paranoid about privacy or anything, but keep in mind, Google isn’t your product, you’re their product, and you’re sold to advertisers. I already use Facebook and Twitter so I’m still tracked, but cutting Google out of that equation gives me a bit of peace of mind. As consumers, we should not be okay with constantly being tracked... do your self a favor and replace Google with DuckDuckGo. The only feedback I have for the devs is to make the keyboard pop up as the app is opened. Why click inside the search bar to bring up the keyboard? The whole reason for opening the app is to start typing something, and therefore the keyboard should already be present. If you must insist on keeping it the way it is, at the least, you can place the search bar in the center so it then becomes a one-handed operation. That’s my only minor complaint..Version: 7.11.0

Absolutely Wonderful IOS Browser (and search engine)I have used DuckDuckGo as my default search engine in Safari on my Mac and my iPhone for a couple of years now. Don’t like Google knowing so much about me. It started out being OK but his steadily improved over the two years and now I can hardly tell the difference when I compare it to the Google search engine. Just started using the DuckDuckGo privacy browser on my iPhone a few days ago. It is excellent. Great browsing experience and great privacy. Touch one icon in the browser and your whole history instantly disappears. This requires going through menus in Settings in iOS Safari. And the built ad blocker is superb. Highly recommend the DuckDuckGo iOS privacy browser and the DuckDuckGo search engine for your Mac. I have tried other privacy browsers in the App Store and DuckDuckGo is the best. Couldn’t be happier. My only complaint. I wish DuckDuckGo made a privacy browser for the Mac..Version: 7.9.4

Great Browser with tipsI came across the duck after buying a subscription to Nord VPN and a paid email service (Proton Mail which is also brilliant)Like many I had always used Google search and email and had no issues and actually admired Google for their innovation but sadly it got to the point that even I recognised exactly how much they they knew about me and often directed me in a particular manner which indicated how they scan read my emails and search history etc. With frequent tips from the duck I now feel free and master of my own information lol.Version: 7.20.0

Review of appreciationI have now used ddg for a while and want to make it my go to search engine but it is very difficult to change google in these apple telephones I like ddg because they have up to the minute news as top stories instead of two or more day old news from google I am so pleased to have found ddg it is great thank you Kind regards from Victoria Australia.Version: 7.61.8

We Always Need True and Honest ReportingIn these unprecedented times, where so much of the truth is banned or claimed to be False on other search engines, we have put all our faith in Duck Duck Go to continue giving us factual and true reporting. We rely on the integrity of Duck Duck Go to enable us to read and find the Truth. The world needs this more than ever in these current circumstances where we are facing criminal acts against humanity. We thank you..Version: 7.64.10

DuckDuckGo web browserMy daughter suggested DuckDuckGo to me as I was fed up with Google knowing my browser history and the ads were ridiculously annoying . DuckDuckGo makes me feel safe & I don't feel spied upon . I love this browser because it's aim is to keep viruses ' hackers away Thankyou so much DuckDuckGo for taking away my anxiety and worry about being hacked again !.Version: 7.71.5

Only one issueThis is a brilliant app that I use as my preferred browser. The only issue I have with it is that it takes about 4x longer to load anything compared to Safari and other browsers. Even just googling something without clicking any links takes about 10 seconds at least compared to 2-3 on Safari. Whilst this is only a small issue, it makes searching multiple things a lot more tedious and lengthy because the time really adds up quick.Version: 7.33.1

Great App if set-up correctly.Great App as long as you make sure there are no files in the background giving it directions. Default settings must be altered to ensure privacy or as least making it hard enough to access for the criminals not to try to obtain your info. As with any app check it against the app privacy report. If you have any apps connecting to over 30 domains or domains that list several of your apps you need to block the rouge domains. If you care about your data don’t leave any credentials or login data in the browser. Use a secure password manager with 2FA. I am assuming if you were looking for a private browser alternative like this that you care about what’s being collected. I give the app 4 stars due to the issue with website data being added in the background without a good explanation or direction on securing your info..Version: 7.83.0

Connection issues sees it forget the URLI’m having a hell of a day with Internet connectivity. I was trying to visit a link and the connection dropped, I left the app to turn off wifi, when I returned to DuckDuckGo the screen said it was having trouble with the connection and then the link I was trying to navigate to was no longer in the address bar! 😞.Version: 7.39.0

Different...Really nice to have a Browser that just does what it says on the tin, and doesn’t feel that it needs to follow you everywhere, and also has the added bonus of blocking the efforts of others who try to. A nice new feature is the little message that now appears telling you what’s been blocked or avoided ....Thanks Folks for making the Internet at least a little bit safe and trustworthy again ...👍.Version: 7.62.7

BEST BROWSER!DuckDuckGo is the best browser I have seen since i have been using Google. I have been using google for 5 years and have been enjoying it UNTIL I saw what Google actually does in the background. I freaked out and was telling everybody about it. I was in the app store when i searched for "secure browser" and the first thing to pop up was "DuckDuckGo, secure browser". I clicked on it and saw the reviews and downloaded it right away, and it was so worth it! When i first opened the app, i went to my favorite website and DuckDuckGo showed me how unsecure it really was. DuckDuckGo has a simple and effective browser layout which is simple to navigate. I tried the fire icon and DuckDuckGo completley erased the browsing history and was amazing! I have completley deleted Google Chrome and this app is my main browser now. If you need a browser for anything, use DuckDuckGo, It wont let you down!.Version: 7.65.10

Images issuesLove this app. Won’t use anything else for searching. Since the last two or three updates the images part is having problems on both my iPhone and iPad. The double tap to zoom in / out isn’t working properly, and when pinch to zoom, sometimes it won’t zoom back out or swipe across. When swiping across individual images the fire etc menu keeps popping up from the bottom. . Swipe to next image doesn’t work sometimes and when trying to swipe across, a scroll up / down bar appears on the right and the images are scrolling in the background so when you close the image the list of images is not where I started..Version: 7.99.0

I feel safe!Hello, I'm Rose! I'm 11, and when I found out apple and google were tracking me, knowing everything I'm doing on my phone and making a secret program about me I was scared! But DuckDuckGo makes me feel safe, it's private! Who knows what apple and google is gonna do to us, I mean? Why do they need to know this important private information!? Get this app, it's a life-saver, no emails etc. you just search and can see how many trackers are being blocked! HORAYYYYYYY.Version: 7.25.0

Why am I just finding you nowI use Duck Duck Go as my default browser search engine, and find it always surprises me how good it actually is, but I didn’t know about the mobile browser until recently. I’m loving it. I grew so tired of every app having google tracker from my previous searches despite using incognito mode. I’m done with being forced to see advertisements that infringe on my privacy. Share the word, DDG is the way..Version: 7.42.0

Brilliant anonymity onlineFrom one little black duck to duck duck go, thank you for your ongoing strive towards the protection of ones online journey while trying to get to the bottom of a personal electronic and digital nightmare. I'm grateful to be able to access genuine websites and the info contained within them with confidence that my personal private data along with my device info is secure while hidden from these life invading and befriending fraudsters that have deceived not only myself but who knows how many others for their own ill gotten gain without any consent from the genuine owner of the device, data, accounts, private property and home delivered mail. Nobullfact.Version: 7.64.13

Excellent browserExcellent tutorial in app and works really well.Version: 7.65.3

Great appI’ve been using DuckDuckGo on my Mac for a year or so since discovering that other search engines aren’t committed to keeping personal information private. This is a great app, and it’s pretty cool to see how many trackers are blocked that normally go unnoticed. If there’s a way you can improve the speed of the app/search engine is definitely give it a 5/5..Version: 7.2.0

Madly Safe Browser The BestThis thing worx amazingly I think, it does what it says it does, so far. I’ve been looking for a made browser like this for years. And finally now I have the perfect browser for the people that cause drama in my internet life. The features are self explanatory. Easy to follow and the prove is there 5 STAR BROWSER AAABrowser in my opinion. And my flat mate whom had a Brain Tumor she is able to use this with no problem. Just the same as myself using this trouble free Browser that curtainly does what it claims to do. Look no further if you want a browser that stops hackers in its tracks from following you and all the other things that this 10/10 browser does. Seriously I’m just a average people that has found this perfect browser & for me to call it perfect doesn’t come from me often. So it must be insanely mad in a good way. It’s main aim is to stop people or others from tacking what your surfing and bothering you. When u are internet surfing. Look no further it’s the best I mean it. Give it a go if u don’t agree or don’t like it you can always delete it. Im in Australia and it’s seriously a very good internet browser. If not the very best.Version: 7.68.5

Order never receivedI made an expensive order back in Sept ‘21 and it’s now nearly Feb ‘22 and I still have not received my order. Numerous times I have contacted them and continuous excuses are given. They told me they will resend then when that wasn’t received I was told they sold out if the ones I wanted. Waiting waiting. No courtesy at all to contact me, I have to chase them..Version: 7.65.6

More contactSeems in the last few days the availability to contact on 5G networks has been more simpler or simplified. I mean to connect to it as much effort having to be put in and seeing some results although still subtle they’re definitely in the area I was looking for, but couldn’t find..Version: 7.72.1

I love you for protecting my privacyI must say the assurances I receive from Duck Duck have been proven to be correct. I know this as a matter of fact because Duck Duck advises me who attempted to view my web requests. Every web site I look for is above board. I am proud of what I look for but just knowing that Duck Duck is protecting Me, unlike Google, who happens to want to know everything I once looked for on there search engine. I only wish that Duck Duck allowed me to speak my request rather than having to type it. I have concluded that Duck Duck hasn’t any Control of who runs the Microphones on these smartphones, tablets, and your laptop or desktop. Therefore, They cannot protect My privacy. Every one is entitled to their views and opinions and no one needs to know what you are looking for. I, wholeheartedly, with confidence ask everyone to try Duck Duck. They will inform you who wants to know what you’re entitled to keep private. I respect their respect to their users. Thanks for reading my review but Duck Duck cannot help you until You use it. It will answer your request as any other search engine. That is to say Google,Safari, AOL, Bing, and others I cannot name at this moment. Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year to one and All. God Bless My World and All readers. Try Duck Duck. Nothing will change, what You seek will be readily available to You. An extremely happy person while seeking answers to my many requests. Fred.Version: 7.59.0

Easy and effective.I love that I don’t need to download apps. I simply keep tabs open on Duck Duck Go browser to ensure privacy. Thank you!.Version: 7.65.13

Very good but some bugbearsThis app is very good, and am glad there is a browser that keeps your data private. However there is a couple of things that slightly annoy me. Firstly even though I’ve fireproofed one website it still doesn’t automatically log in every time, which is slightly annoying. Also I use a password manager and the interface to automatically insert passwords from it into a website isn’t close to being as slick on this app as on, say, safari. However these really are minor bugbears and on the whole it’s a very good app..Version: 7.59.0

No turning backI have been using ddg for over 10yrs now across all my device's. When I started using there was no app, it was just a browser based search engine like early days of the internet before google when your options were Lycos, Yahoo, AltaVista, WebCrawler… to name a few. I do occasionally dabble with the new players that appear on the market but somewhere they always fall short and I always end up coming back. Keep up the good work..Version: 7.70.7

Just a couple things to considerSearch engines notoriously have poor AI’s. And from my experience apparently some of them have no AI. Of course I guess that depends on your perspective. Nonetheless, from a user standpoint, if the search engine cannot understand common English punctuation usage nor discern that words inside quotes should be seen as phrases, “not separate words”; then there is room for improvement! The use of punctuation to define different parameters for a “search”, is in fact old school! It’s been around for a while. Unfortunately search engines for the Internet don’t seem to remember that. And many of us (your clients) have noticed. I can assure you, the first company that develops these capabilities, along with the security and privacy that DuckDuckGo offers (which I’m sure will continue to improve as the future unfolds), will find great success and popularity within the first week. So what if “a week” seems like a slow rise; especially if it leads to a loyal fan club that includes high numbers of subscribers. Also you get the privilege of getting a five star rating from me. 🛖 Get into your think tanks!.Version: 7.64.6

Best thing everThanks so much do this service and amazing app. Everyone needs it. Don’t know why I took me so long to just switch and make it my default browser. Fascinates me to see how much we are tracked. Epstein didn’t kill himself, 9/11 was an inside job. Read Robert Kennedy’s latest book on the ins and outs of the pharmaceutical culture.Version: 7.65.0

MissThe speed to download a page is slow.Version: 7.61.6

Works wellA great search engine. I like that it’s not Google and I’m told has better privacy and less bias around what you search. Feels a little slower than Google when searching..Version: 7.46.0

Fireproof!The ability to “fireproof” websites means that you can regularly wipe all your cookies expect those associated with particular sites so you don’t have to sign in again every time you visit them. It’s a wonderful combination. Adverts for those shoes you bought a few weeks ago no longer chase you around the internet, and you’re immune to other more nefarious uses of cookies too. The one downside is that every time you visit a website after clearing cookies you’ve gotta click through a GDPR consent request (if you live in the EU). Would be nice if they could automate responses to those..Version: 7.59.0

Great concept, bit slow and clumsy to use on iPhoneLove love love the concept of privacy and blocking trackers from search results. For some who feels squeamish about being tracked and as targeted on their every search, this is a great browser. I use the app though, and notice loading website's takes about 3-4 times the time as normal searches and browsing on safari does :(. Also, the refresh button is not a standalone visible button, but requires pressing the "..." Function to select refresh from a dropdown menu. The changing and upgrading of this would be awesome! Also not sure how DDG will survive the competitive ad market due to ad targeting only being for the current search while other search engines are doing more comprehensive tracking and gathering, but I hope they can! :).Version: 7.1.0

Go for DuckDuckGoOnly been using this Browser App for a few days, after it being recommended by a friend. He was extolling its virtues of eliminating all the tracking that takes place behind the scenes with other Browsers. He demonstrated just how evasive the tracking involved is. After seeing its extent, couldn’t get to try DuckDuckGo quick enough. Now I am using it on my iPhone, iPad and main computer, setting it as the default Browser: So far I haven”t found any case where DuckDuckGo has decreased my Browser results in any way. I love its incinerator effect which gives a graphic illustration of your Browser’s trail being ‘burnt’ up. If you haven”t tried DuckDuckGo, I say go for it, without hesitation. FCB.Version: 7.62.1

Want some Privacy?So, a few years back I spotted this on a family members laptop. Being curious I asked what was up with the duck. I was then informed that it doesn’t track us, and my intrigue was peaked. Once I downloaded it I noticed something absolutely remarkable: Google not only tracks us, which we all know, but it also specifically hides certain results. I won’t get into the nitty gritty of it, but know that if you want accurate information and true privacy and security: DuckDuckGo is the best way to go for search engines. One of my favorite features is the fact I can burn everything when I’m done, which I do regardless of what I search for. Tired of those ads that you get based on your searches? Want some Privacy? Download DuckDuckGo and save yourself the headache of worrying about it. For added security, check out Proton mail, which follows the same ideology but for you email..Version: 7.35.0

So freaking goodTbh, screw google. Thanks for actually giving us privacy ❤️.Version: 7.65.2

DuckDuck is not a safe app to use.This app will take your information and account and sell it to any third party including terrorist and that’s what happened with me, I download that app and I write on the search key how to enable Rumble comments and I pack from the search results Rumble how to enable comment and that take me to the page and they don’t show me the clear steps and after that the terrorist who they selled to him my information and account he start to say to me F Word and threat me and he said to me that he will blow up not only me but the whole entire Neighborhoods that I am living in and he show me a map and the area that I am living in and said that he is not happy about my comments that I make on social media, then I contact apple because I get that app from apple App Store and I telled them why didn’t apple write a warning about DuckDuck private browsing because the reason why I downloaded this app because it’s on Apple app Store, they respond to me that this app is a third party app. Anyway I still disappointed apple because they didn’t mention that DuckDuck is a third party app and using that app is on my own risk and because apple always have good apps and products if apple don’t telled her customers that DuckDuck is a third party app and if they use it it’s on there owned risk, how there customers know this app is not safe..Version: 7.71.1

Almost perfectI love this app and am very thankful that its available. My only complaint is that I often get lost in a loop of new tabs when trying to access my open tabs. At the bottom right of the app there is a small square with the number of existing tabs. 1/2 the time when I touch the tab number box it opens a new tab. If it only happened once I would not even mention it but it happens 5-6 times in a row before I finally get a chance to delete all the new tabs I have opened. Inevitably I hit above the X when trying to close one of the inadvertant new tabs and the cycle starts over when I try to hit the tab number box again. I love the app so much I just deal with it but man it would be nice if this issue could be fixed Update: The developer contacted me to let me know that the discussed bug above is actually a sneaky shortcut and is supposed to work this way. Though I appreciate the developer responding to me I cannot change my feelings toward this functionality. It is only supposed to create a new tab when you hold it down. I have this happen with a single tap all the time. Sometimes 4-5 times in a row. It is a time waster and annoying for me but I do not mean to sound ungrateful, I love this app and I love Duck Duck Go for their privacy policy. Thanks for getting back to me.Version: 7.64.17

DuckduckgoOverall I am very pleased with Duckduckgo. It affords much more privacy, than the Google’s and Facebooks of this increasingly intrusive World we now inhabit. I like the fact that you can easily give Feedback whether it be positive or negative. I find when I use Duckduckgo that my iPhone is very rarely tracked. It’s a good feeling that you can scroll the Internet without the many many snoopers. If I use my friends phone(no Duckduckgo) The list of trackers following is mind boggling!! Thank you Duckduckgo Jacqueline.Version: 7.25.0

Excellent But...Why is there such a long delay between the time you click on the app to launch it until you can actually begin typing in a search term? It wasn’t always like this. Seems to be getting more and more bloated with every update..Version: 7.62.1

GreatIt’s great how it blocks to other people so they can’t see what you are doing online where as google can track you online and see what you are doing.Version: 7.71.1

Privacy Rules!Great site for those who know and say no!.Version: 7.68.6

Love this appI love this app!! I was shocked to see the companies that were trying to track me when I went onto my different sites (uni portal/ shopping websites) It drives me nuts that websites don’t let you browse without wanting to “add cookies” and track your every move! I never accept them but it is hard to get around sometimes. On here you see little symbols at the top of the page of the companies trying to track you, then you see a line through them to show they’ve been blocked. I don’t even use Facebook so was disgusted to see they were trying to track me. I was really irritated because I don’t use “social” media for a reason, so why they are tracking clothing and uni websites ... I don’t know. I’ve told my partner about it and he’s downloaded the app and I’m going to keep raving about it to everyone. Privacy is so important to me and I’m glad there’s finally an app that protects my info..Version: 7.61.3

Just wanted to download something for when Google stops working in AustraliaI just downloaded this because Google has grown so big that it’s threatening my countries government. I don’t even care about the new media laws. I just don’t think a company should grow so powerful that it bullies entire nations. I’ll always back the little guy and shun the bullies. Threats like this from monopolists are not okay..Version: 7.61.13

A simply private and elegant mobile experienceThis app is just everything a mobile browser could need, and it only gets better with each update! First things first, this app looks like it was made with the mobile user in mind. One glance at the interface, and with a simple tutorial of just the most basic buttons, anyone could use this browser with ease. Not too many buttons to overwhelm the user, but not too few configurations to displease the power user. My favorite part of this privacy browser has to be the powerful flame which will wipe clean all the tabs that you may have open, allowing for you to start all over again with a new session full of your greatest searches. The latest update, as of this review, has added the feature to modify the splash effect of the flame to be a cooler “burn” effect. The developers are doing a great job maintaining this app with many great additions in each new release. Definitely an app for people who want peace of mind and privacy ensured with every search. Kudos to the team at DuckDuckGo for such an amazing app!.Version: 7.62.1

BestI trust this browser / app completely. Works well every time. I like knowing my browsing cannot be tracked..Version: 7.19.1

It keeps crashing or something...I love the duck duck go app! It’s good with privacy and doesn’t track you like google etc. One problem though is that so I’ll download it for example and through the whole day it I can use it, but the next day I lock on it and the loading screen comes up for about 10 seconds and then it backs out of the app no matter how many times I try and it’s like as if it were kicking me off of the app and it’s really annoying. I even restarted my phone and it didn’t let me on so I had to re-install it and thankfully it worked but it then comes back, and I have to go through the whole app introducing itself again. Eventually I got so sick and tired of re-installing the app that I wanted to stop using it but I like how the app works and instead of it going back to the home-screen it saves what you had on last when you get on again, and that’s another thing that I like about it. Please duck duck go fix this I hate uninstalling and then re-installing it again. But in it’s a good app! 👍 I really recommend it!.Version: 7.62.1

Privacy is a top priorityI don’t wright reviews but I really like this even thought I don’t really have anything to hide I think that if we don’t show these companies that we care about are privacy we will live in future/society we’re ads and tracks haunt us all and influence use. Which is why I really recommend this app it doesn’t track you, it block/prevents trackers from tracking you, doesn’t have a filter bubble that gives you customized results kinda like propaganda and discrimination and lastly it gives helpful tips to keep your privacy in check. If it weren’t for DuckDuckGo I would have never know that the share my location setting doesn’t work most of the time. You might be think how does DuckDuckGo make money the way do that is from affiliate links basically when you buy something online in DuckDuckGo some of that money goes DuckDuckGo I hole that this has convinced you to try out DuckDuckGo and thanks for reading this long..Version: 7.27.0

Missing One ThingMake no mistake about it, this is a five star app. If I could Add one feature, I would add the ability to save a page to the home screen like you can in safari. Even though Duck Duck Go can be set as the default browser, if you open a link saved to your home screen through Safari, the link will still open Safari rather than opening the default browser, whatever it is. Even so, the browser has the usual features like bookmarks and the ability to save to a reading list, but I have many links saved to my home screen and placed in a folder for one touch convenience. I hope this feature is added in the future. I will happily put up with the inability to use bookmarks from my home screen for browsing security. It is fascinating to look at the site security report for each site to see how often content creators are attempting to track us across the Internet and how many trackers there are in the sites we use..Version: 7.63.4

Delighted.I was skeptical as to how the search engine would function without cookies, mainly if the content would not be what I’m looking for and if the searching would be random, but DuckDuckGo functions just as efficiently as other search engines. The more I use it the more I see the myths Google propagate around the use of cookies and functionality to encourage us to accept tracking and scrutiny under the guise of ease of use and security. It’s quite shocking. I love the way I can close the tabs and remove trace of my usage of it to avoid tracking and targeted advertising. It’s a great search engine and I will be recommending it widely. Thank you DuckDuckGo..Version: 7.64.18

DUCK DUCK GOBest search engine out there only one I use ;).Version: 6.0.9

Why this is the best search engine ..a tribute to freedom.Our forefathers certainly had high hopes and aspirations in crafting our constitution and bill of rights etcetera. Once upon a time a guy I know (ahem) opened his computer to find that these two search engines changed all the filters...permanently. Welcome to the machine as the iconic band Pink Floyd put it. The accounts had always been forever mined for information so they could “bring relevant opportunities to me ...their beloved citizen”. My junk mail box swelled over the years while my inbox dwarfed in comparison. Turns out their oversight of my accounts led to all sorts of turmoil in my life..and it was all my fault? I had all the two factor identification everything and more. Their account agreement where they state it’s okay to share our information with their partners. Well the one of the partners was very careless..Version: 7.16.1

Hackers RevengeI have been hacked so badly that most people/phone companies/utility companies/friends/family all just say to me “it’s just a glitch” “ that just happens sometimes” I had some friends say when we caught up “as long as you don’t talk about the hacking” well it’s still not over but it’s getting there bit by bit . I just want to say that DuckDuckGo is the safest I’ve ever felt on the internet , thankyou duck duck ..Version: 7.21.0

WonderfulYes, I like the privacy aspects of Duck Duck Go - it’s the main reason why I use the app (and have it as my primary search function on all my other devices/Internet). What I want to talk about is the app/widget on iOS devices. The app is wonderful. I like that I can reorder tabs (after seeing them as little cards vs. teeny tiny status bars. I like that with one touch of one button, everything is gone, the browser is clear. So satisfying, watching that “flame” rise to the top. Overall, using the app is a wonderful experience. But my absolute favorite thing/response is when I tap on the widget I’ve put on the Home Screen of my iPhone. You see, usually, 99.9% of the time, I open an internet browser app to conduct a search. This widget opens the app with the cursor already in the search bar and the keyboard all ready to go! No having to tap anywhere to get the keyboard. Oh, and it’s already opened to a new tab, I’m not overwriting a tab I’ve already used. For me, this time saving convenience is like frosting on the cake. So thanks for this app & widget, Duck Duck Go developers. I really appreciate the whole thing - privacy to convenience. Overall, the privacy aspect is awesome and really, that’s the bottom line. It’s that good. I recommend this to anyone who will listen..Version: 7.57.1

A pleasant surpriseI’ve known about DuckDuckGo for a long time, but never used it, and now it is the only engine I’ll use on my devices. Love how it blocks trackers, and alerts you to the websites that try to track you, even trusted sites that you would use daily- such as the school sites for my kids, they are riddled with trackers. I might get less emails from Nigerian royalty trying to give me millions of dollars haha. Give it a go..Version: 7.61.13

Far too few people use the best browser available.“Far too few” really means “not enough” to be sure. I rarely endorse apps and even more rare is an endorsement I make for a tech/IT/web product. I clearly and vehemently can make a case for every internet traveler to want -nay NEED to use this browser. Yes, I assume that everyone needs (and wants) to protect their privacy when on the web. I don’t think that’s a far-fetched assumption to make. I’ve used this browser quite a bit now and after previous frustrating attempts to enhance my privacy by using other, more popular browsers’ cumbersome privacy settings, can readily say that DuckDuckGo’s offering is the most intuitive, well laid out, and quick browser I’ve used in the over 25 years I’ve been an IT professional. The browser has an almost minimalist look and feel. That doesn’t mean that it is without varied features tried-and-true and some I wished I’d had long ago. I will be installing DuckDuckGo‘s browser on production machines at the office and clients as well. (After I verify any legality issues ($) therein of course) Thanks DuckDuckGo -jbl.Version: 7.9.0

Tracker blockingThere’s a neat eye-opening feature listing ad trackers blocked and other dubious privacy practices. A decent basic browser. Safari has reading mode, and Google has more powerful search tools, e.g. more options for refining searches by date. If it had these two features, DuckDuckGo would be my default browser..Version: 7.14.1

My preferred browserI don’t know why I didn’t switch a long time ago! I am so tired of websites that don’t allow you to reject cookies. I keep being told just don’t use them, then. But sometimes I can’t avoid using some websites, so the option to incinerate everything at the end of a session is great. I love the flames too, great touch. I feel much more secure knowing I’m not being constantly tracked without my consent..Version: 7.70.2

Ad and intrusion free......DuckDuckGo is so efficient, none ad, none intrusive (unlike google) and I have never had a problem with security ie no scams spyware or endless pop up ads, and no payments for ad free sites because I simply don’t get them with DuckDuckGo! Google, Facebook, Instagram etc are so big now and multi platform owned users get swept into all kinds of ads, surveys, and endless “you may like this” companies trying to sell things. I personally wouldn’t use anything else than DuckDuckGo as my search engine! Martin Devon.Version: 7.67.0

For those who want privacy above all elseI will be honest. I tried DuckDuckGo search many times and always seemed to go back to google. Then recently I start doing research into data privacy (or lack there of) and realized just what is happening behind the scenes when you visit websites. So I made the decision to try DuckDuckGo again, this time with privacy as the focus. Come to find out that’s all I needed. This company is dedicated to changing the way your data is managed and I’m loving it. Skip ahead to downloading this app and the transition from Firefox was a breeze. This browser catches so much I didn’t even know existed on the sites I regularly visit. It’s simple and easy to use and I’m sure it’s only going to get better with time. Take back your privacy and give it a chance. You won’t regret it..Version: 7.67.3

Did a little comparison testing!I put in a few different political questions and searches on both Google and Duck Duck Go, Articles and videos galore showed up on Duck Duck Go where Google pretty much decided the world really doesn’t need to know all about true Election statistics apparently unless it’s coming from their “trusted sites”. In other words, unless it comes from their politically biased news sites and pollsters. Do your own research! And use this app! I’ve changed my Safari to Duck Duck Go also unless I’m curious about whether Google shows the same unbiased info. The answer is almost always NO, they show complete opposite leaning to the left info. Stop giving these radical companies like “Google” “Twitter” and “Facebook” your downloads and essentially making them richer while they censor the voices of all countries of the world, not just the United States!.Version: 7.59.0

Duck Duck GoFabulous search engine. Been using it just like the others and have no complaints whatsoever..Version: 7.61.6

Just Duck It! Good riddance Google you won’t be missed!I’m so happy to get Google and Facebook out of my life once and for good. It’s like quitting smoking. You feel so much better after doing so. DDG is a breath of fresh air. I fully stand by companies that are for the people in helping the fight to restore our privacy and rights. Which is getting to be a bigger concern as technology is moving forward. We all live in the Information Age and we need to protect it. Hope to see more companies stepping up like DDG is. With all that said, I would like to see optimizations made to take full support of the bigger screen on the iPhone XS Max. I’ve told all my friends and family about DDG and they all love it. The interface is extremely clean, sleek and sexyyyyy! It even has dark mode that you can choose under themes and you can pretty much customize the overall look and feel of it also! Love that feature..Version: 7.9.4

Search bar in bookmarksLove the app one feature I’d like to see but there no rush for it is a search bar in booksmark especially if you have a lot of them.Version: 7.46.3

Love the DuckI’ve been using Duck Duck Go from the day I discovered that my previous search engine had recorded every single search from day one That was a while ago and the Duck back then was a bit modest compared to what I was used to but the knowledge that these searches were completely private kept me here, and over the years I have seen DDG grow and improve.Version: 7.42.0

Glad your blocking the information police from me.I was so tired of having my social media searched through so company’s could blast me with ads. I love it when the fire eats up my search history. You go Duck Duck Go.Version: 7.61.13

QuickQuickGoThats what it should’ve been called!!! Really quick search engine! After the main search engine started slowing everybody down because their a bunch of tossers, I looked at this engine, I’m glad I did, every search I do its instant also they can tell you who's tracking you and burn em out!!! lol And, the engine does not track you because before I got adverts on other stuff I was looking at, now I never get them!! Brilliant! DuckDuckGo thank you!.Version: 7.62.7

ProtectionLove the protection you give around who’s trying to track..Version: 7.64.7

This app is amazing!I installed this app with low expectations after seeing an advert for it. However, it is amazing and has helped me get off of bad websites. As a huge Harry Potter fan, I am on the official Harry Potter fan club and I was shocked to find three people tracking me! Luckily this app blocked them and created me a new ‘duck’ email so I’m not revealing any information. This app also works the same as Google and I have replaced Google with DuckDuckGo which works amazingly well. On the whole, this is a very good app and I would definitely recommend!.Version: 7.93.0

Missing one thing...I like it. I’m concerned about privacy, and DDG seems to be great. I use different browser for different purposes, and DDG is my general use one. I just wish it had a setting like Safari where you can turn on the option to automatically request desktop sites all the time, which is the only reason I’m looking to try a different browser for my general use purposes. Update: Compared to Google, the search results kinda stink; price to pay to an extent leaving Google’s model of making us their product for financial gain, but DDG still returns good results, just doesn’t hold a candle to Google’s search abilities. Never using another Google device ever again if I don’t have to. Safe search settings continuously reset. Could use settings to close all tabs when closing the app without clearing anything else. Love the quick fire at the bottom and the ability to choose tiled tabs or compact list of tabs..Version: 7.59.0

I’d get itNever get caught being on pornhub, I love it. Good app.Version: 7.64.0

I love this app!Although you may think this app is TRICKING US no it isn’t I had searched this app completely and the ad is telling the truth so if you are looking for a non creepy app that is literally the police on your phone your data you have come to the right place. The only minor thing about this is that when I looked at the images section of what I was searching they had very little images but they are quite new so this will hopefully be updated a lot I really recommend this app for you😁.Version: 7.24.0

So Far So GreatI made DDG the default browser and search engine on my iphone...at least I think I did. I get confused about the browser vs search tool concept but that's me, no fault of DDG. Also I get confused about what browser is open when I've owned a browser. Is there even a way to tell what browser we're in while in a browser....always confusing to me. Anyway....I digress... I'm particularly enjoying the DDG search tool widget I managed to add to my iphone's icons/buttons. Two of the three designs let us add icons/buttons to our fave web links. Helps speed up getting to links instead of needing to scroll through a menu. Would be ideal if there were a two-row DDG search tool widget for placing two rows of our favorite link icons into....but I'm being fussy. Also made DDG my default search tool on my PC. I don't think I found a DDG browser for computers....but I may be wrong...again, I'm confused..Version: 7.63.1

Would like Reader ViewWhile it’s nice that a lot of ads and banners are blocked, sometimes a website’s layout is annoying and a Reader View facility would be helpful for those sites. PS - my Sign In with Apple works again..Version: 7.64.4

The best search engineI’ve been happily using DuckDuckGo and spreading the word for years to friends who also love it. It is the best search engine, gives the information you want and not the information marketing wants you to see. The only downside is I miss the quack the duck made when opening the page which considering all the benefits this app offers, no tracking, no selling, privacy etc is a very tiny downside indeed. Thank you DuckDuckGo!.Version: 6.0.9

So thankful!I love being able to use a private search engine and it works as fast as the other ones!.Version: 7.68.6

Just what i was looking forDuckDuckGo has been my search engine of choice for a while but when a recent update made the default browser show open tabs as tiles i have been looking for one that uses a more list like function. Unlike other browser options DuckDuckgo has this option and is now my browser on my phone too. It is a relief that i can be a little less diligent rejecting cookies. Also weirdly one website i goes to shows more articles using DuckDuckgo, very odd..Version: 7.70.7

Default BrowserI have been using DuckDuckGo since I have become more privacy and security minded person. I care about my data and what is out there. However, I lack few features in the browser. The most important one is to be able to switch between windows by swiping left and right. I don’t understand why it hasn’t been implemented already, the fact that you have to go to your open windows and then select the window you want to open every time is mind boggling for me..Version: 7.79.1

DuckDuckOuch, told ya to duck!You thought you could just surf all you want and nobody would know. You sneak off to sites in the 4 corners of the globe, just where you should not be seen publicly! You were caught sleuthing where your girl/boyfriend told you not to go! Just had to go there, didn’t you? Now turn around and say, “Thank you, GOOGLE!” You have been betrayed! Now you have all those pop ups and unwanted emails. Serves ya right. Should have gone with DUCKDUCKGO from the beginning. No blood trail for anyone to follow! DDG says you surf without a leash, then there is no leash. Your privacy is especially important to you and equally important to DDG in helping you keep it that way. They help ensure your privacy remains private. Yes, a bit getting used to at first, but when you realize GOOGLE had you on a leash, you’ll happily turn to DDG. DDG is my go to for all things personal and private..Version: 7.14.1

I feel so much safer online! :]I've only had the app for a few days, but it's been an absolute dream. I was skeptical when I first heard about it; who would trust a smaller search engine over the tried and true Google? It was something ingrained into my psyche, I guess— although the hassles about privacy were starting to worry me. But I am ecstatic that I made the switch; I'm finding proper answers to my searches online, with no ads at the top of results. I can clear my tabs and data with the press of an easily accessible button (Which is great for my safety at home! It's a long story...), and the blocking of trackers is incredible! I might just be easily impressed or something, but I love that DuckDuckGo notifies you that they've blocked trackers, and even tells you the names of what they blocked! Google doesn't even bat an eye when you get trackers! I also find it extremely credible to DDG's prioritization of privacy that I have yet to find something equivalent to a search history or incognito mode. A week ago, I would've felt nervous without those options, but I actually feel quite comfortable! Especially after having done a bit of research on the company and their business model. Thanks to the DDG team for making such a wonderful, smooth, and safe online experience. Keep up the good work! :].Version: 7.93.0

What a great search engine!In the last couple of days, I have rediscovered DuckDuckGo. Before this week, I thought DuckDuckGo was a puny search engine compared to Google. That was two years ago. Now I know that DuckDuckGo offers more tailored search results, and blocks those nasty trackers which build up an online profile about you. This information can be sold to target you with advertising. DuckDuckGo is a smaller company than Google, but I believe it is far superior on ethical and practical grounds. So do yourself a favour and download DuckDuckGo today on your phone, or use the online browser..Version: 7.9.4

What happened,To “open in new tab”? to setting to open links in new tab? latest update on 12.4.9.Version: 7.61.0

Delight to useWith Google getting more and more intrusive and requiring you to repeatedly login, verify, and submit to more and more “results” that are unwanted and sales oriented, I tried DuckDuckGo and it is a sheer delight to use. With a little bit of change in my questions (unlearning the need to be devious trying to beat Google’s algorithms) I get only relevant results reminiscent of the early days of Yahoo and Google. I now have DuckDuckGo as my default search engine on Safari as well as loaded on my iPhone, iPad and Macbook Air. Quack on team!.Version: 7.95.0

Slowed downHi there!! I love what you are doing with this browser and what it offers. I would like to give some feedback. Of late, your browser has significantly slowed down in performance. I’ve noticed this specially in the past month. Which leads me to believe it might be software related. I am using an iPhone 12 Pro Max on the latest iOS. Thanks.Version: 7.72.6

Absolutely IncredibleI’ve been looking for a decent web browser for a very long time, and I was delighted when I came across this app. This app is practically perfect. The security and blockers are amazing. There is one small problem that would make this app perfect—the search engine does not have a microphone so you can not speak what you want to search. I am very happy with this search engine and it is clearly worth five stars. They’ve got a cool set up with the duck that sort of acts like a host and it never saves history. If you’re looking for a good, safe and secure web browser, then Duck Duck Go is the one you’re looking for..Version: 7.49.0

Great But…App is great for people wanting a privacy centric browser some minor UI improvements would make bookmarks easier to use but major oversight is visibility of what the ‘Manage Cookie Pop-ups’ (best effort cookie management) has done when the capability is enabled. DDG does not allow you to review what actions have been taken, so that you can confirm if, for example, Legitimate Interest claims have been objected for you or if you have to make the effort to object. Also it’s impossible to manually surface a web sites cookie banner after DDG has’ managed’ cookies so the function is useless you trust DDG’s best effort cookie management (note DDG warns that it’s best effort cookie management does not work for all sites)..Version: 7.91.1

How the internet should be.This search enjoin is awesome, it shows you ALL the options when you put in a search, not just the ones the far LEFT want you to see. Keep up the good work and thanks for letting US decide what we want to read..Version: 7.63.10

Very straight forwardI really like how the explanation of the app is very straight forward and how they made it so secure and friendly. Thank you so much for the privacy.Version: 7.70.2

Ability to download PDFsOnly complaint is there doesn’t seem to be a way to download a file or PDF to phone like any other browser..Version: 7.64.16

Great jobGreat platform .!! “Big Tech”outfits have shown their hand to us as bullies. What do rats do when the ship starts sinking ?!.Version: 7.61.11

Can watch YouTubeDad stop looking at.Version: 7.101.0

Email distributionThanks for the quick reply. 🙂 I am a bit worried about the possibility of problems with this and that I will be prevented from receiving emails or they could be delayed. I haven’t finished reading all the information. Could I cancel any time? Another query - can we transfer more than one email address?.Version: 7.64.10

Loads pages twice!?I would rave about this (privacy, of course, but also it doesn't try to reload the last page you were on, like Safari does - I have to close windows manually every time I close Safari down) but..... Is it really just me for whom DDG loads every single page twice? Annoying if I'm entering a password, or have scrolled down, only to have to start again. No-one else on the web seems to have reported this, but I don't think I'm losing my marbles.... Could a developer take a look? iPhone 6S and iPad 6th gen, always update to the latest DDG. Thanks! I'd love to rave about this app, but can't quite!.Version: 7.65.2

ReviewI have only just switched to DuckDuckGo as I read an article about google an what they can actually see an do an watch it sickened me at the thought of google being able to access just on me one person, the amount of info they have alone on myself is scary I don’t like that thought.. my daughter for a very long time has told me to be very careful with what I say an do through my phone? I was more concerned for my daughter thinking she was acting very cautious sometimes paranoid as she would turn her phone of when getting undressed or if she wanted to speak to me about something private her phone would be switched of but now after finding out what google can access just of myself my daughter isn’t the one that’s being to cautious.. I’ve noticed that everything an anything I talk about with my friends or something I listen to on the tv will for sure show up on my phone at some point that makes me think it was just a coincidence but it’s actually not there’s no such thing as a coincidence!! This made me want to switch over from google to DuckDuckGo....Version: 7.24.0

Love it, but…Since the last major iOS release, he app performance has been terrible. Pages load partially or not at all and, at an estimate, approximately 80% of the time I have to follow a link to a page, wait for the page to partially load, then hit refresh and then I normally see it load in a reasonable amount of time. If I don’t hit refresh I get nothing more than a few page artifacts and lots and lots of emptiness. Please, bring back the browser behaviour I once knew and loved..Version: 7.70.7

BrilliantI’ve tried any number of “secure browser” on the iPad. Most of them are sorely lacking in features and crash every five minutes. I’ve been using this non stop for five hours, not a crash or hint of a problem. Everything works smoothly - it felt just like using Safari - but it keeps thing nice and secure. I logged into a forum I use a lot and instantly got a Facebook tracker blocked that I didn’t even know about. Thanks DuckDuckGo, it’s a winner..Version: 7.61.13

Kept crashing when opening appThis latest version just kept crashing whenever trying to open the app. Only able to open the app after several attempts at it. Also freezes often..Version: 7.64.10

Love DDGI love their apps and the company, and it would be five stars, but DDG hammers my battery, regularly taking up 50% over the course of a day or two. And I don’t even spend much time on my phone. That power drain is while my phone is idle. I’ll be switching to a new browser till that gets fixed..Version: 7.73.0

Convenient private browsing than most browsersIf you want to visit any sites you rather not want browser to track you it’s very good and easy to use. Features are simple and you don’t have to remember a million settings that come with other browsers attached to your Google account for instant asking for this and that permission etc. I call it browse and dump all your history on one button push. Having compared the search results with Google it doesn’t seem vastly different but I noticed Edge is..Version: 7.63.7

FabulousSeems to be a great search engine I’ve noticed no difference. Should get rid of all the cross platform information sharing and the annoying targeted ads, that seem to know all about me..Version: 7.61.8

FreedomAs the giant tech companies that control everything you read, are quite disgustingly bias, and are trying to destroy free speech, it is refreshing to see companies like this preserve your freedom, not control you. Bravo!.Version: 7.61.6

Hate new minimized grid!July 21, 2020 UPDATE: Thank you for putting back in the option for viewing tabs!! Much better on the eyes. Only thing I noticed now is that the tabs all look alike except maybe a small icon on the left. Before I could tell what the site was by the coloration or other distinguishing features. Now I have to go slower and stop and look. If you can make the left icon bigger/ more distinct or incorporate easy to see color banners (whatever) that can allow you to recognize the site it would be very helpful. Also with the new grid ‘box’ tabs I found it very easy to accidently delete a tab when scrolling. . I couldn’t see a way to reverse it. But I have to tell you - you were amazingly quick at addressing the issue. Bravo!!! Now if only AAA understood that I would reinstall their auto app...... =============================== OMG! When I minimized a page before I could easily scroll through the other pages to get to another tab as the tab heading was easy to see and narrow (top to bottom). NOW I see these big fat boxes that are side by side and I can’t just scroll down I always have to look left and right as well. It really bothers my eyes and slows me down. Ugh. It is MUCH more difficult now, not in any way easier. But this is an easy fix! Give people the option in settings to choose the layout!!! And for goodness sake please do it quickly! Thanks..Version: 7.49.0

Recommended.Recommended. I’d like to start off by saying that DuckDuckGo is a very efficient and reliable search engine, and I would recommend it for people who want to protect their privacy and searches. I’ll give a few points for those who are unsure about installing DuckDuckGo: reasons to install: Privacy is generally a thing valued by most people, DuckDuckGo ensures that you can keep this privacy. There’s a quick way to clear everything in-app through pressing a button or closing the application. Flexible and can be used as a search engine for applications beyond the original DDG app. flaws: Searches can take longer to load, though it is not too bad. On mobile, cannot download images from the images tab, but instead need to go to the source of the image. Other than these, I could not find many flaws with the app. I would, personally, give DuckDuckGo a 9.3/10. Done..Version: 7.19.0

This one’s a winner!Get this one. It’s the best..Version: 7.63.11

Way better than GoogleI had no idea DuckDuckGo also had a phone app, but I’m so glad I found it. It lets you know what’s going on, you have a lot more control over stuff, but if you have no skills, it pretty much just starts protecting you right off the bat anyway. And let’s you know what’s happening. It has a VPN, blocks trackers and things just like it says it does. Easy to navigate of course, and to top it all off... this is pretty irreverent but the artwork is hilarious, there’s a button for clearing your tabs out, and when you push it, all these flames fly across the screen. I’m a sucker for art and heart, so good on them for including some cool personal touches for us to laugh at..Version: 7.62.1

Wonderful browser.Feel a lot safer online..Version: 7.63.1

FlawlessCouldn’t think of a problem if I tried.Version: 7.62.7

The Full Internet .Once upon a time, the internet was a place for free thoughts, no matter what they were. You could search the internet and get all results. You could make up your own mind and decide which of the results of your search were good or bad. You could think for yourself. Then this insidious company named google ,decided that you weren’t smart enough to decide which search results were what you wanted. So this evil company said,” We know better than everyone else and we will only return search results that they approve of or have been paid for.” All other information that’s out there is irrelevant and they can’t read others opinions unless we say that it’s ok. If you are a free thinker and don’t want to be told what you should think, read, know and want to see all and decide for yourself, Delete google as a search engine and use Duck Duck Go. Your search will return all of the internet, not just what an evil company wants you to read..Version: 7.9.4

Fantastic secure search engineA secure search engine which doesn't track you. App itself is nice and accommodated with useful features..Version: 7.9.1

Awesome appHas safe search and is 100 times better than Google.Version: 7.92.0

Great with One WeaknessI genuinely enjoy using DuckDuckGo. The default search engine is comparable to Google, and while I’m in a weird stage where I can’t afford a VPN it’s nice to have a browser that makes me feel at least somewhat protected while using the Internet and it is easy to use if you’re already familiar with Safari or other existing mobile browsing apps. It does have one downside however. There’s no pop-up blocking functionality at all, or at least not one that I’ve been able to easily find after a year of using the app, and it’s kind of disappointing because there’s not a way to add extensions and some apps have pop ups that I don’t know about and there’s nothing I can do to stop that. Since DuckDuckGo is so privacy focused it would be nice if the app had features to protect me from malicious pop-ups. If it does exist and I don’t know about it after combing the settings, they should definitely do something to make it more easily accessible by the user..Version: 7.65.1

Absolutely worth 5 stars BUT…This is an excellent replacement browser with integrated search engine, giving some confidence that web browsing is more secure than other available options. Been using it since first available and I now live a life free of gooble ad tracking. It’s gratifying to see that blank google ad placeholder wherever I go on the web! There is one function I wish existed however: with the ability to leave numerous tabs open for future reference and consequently struggling to find that one tab I used without opening yet another for the same website, why can’t I search for the urls of open tabs??? Searching the current page for text is fine, but I need to check that website/tab I opened last week without typing a new search. Maybe this function exists but I can’t find any reference to it… anyway thanks for all your hard work duckies!.Version: 7.65.0

Duck Duck Go....Every Search = 💯I find Duck Duck Go my #1 go to, for all of my Searches on the Internet! I get better results than any of the others! It’s better than Chrome, and the others out on the market. I Love that Duck Duck Go is Interactive. It’s also Fun, and when I say Fun, besides my Searches, I get jokes, less advertising ~ (Thank you for that) like who wants adverts, popping up when you’re only interested in what you’re Searching for, Correct? Well for myself, that’s high on my Priority list! I’ve at times, given Chrome 2nd & 3rd Chances, but I’ve always been let down! Therefore Duck Duck Go, is what I’ll always use. Even the updates are Real Updates, always something useful and exciting! I’m giving it the most stars allowed, because the Developers deserve only the Best, since they provide me with the BEST! 💞.Version: 7.65.8

Great for 90 % of my browsingStrips out many off the 3rd party advertisements and probably much of the unwanted sharing and monitoring of your activities with external entities of ill repute such as Facebook, especially when used in conjunction with No Script and Privacy Badger. The sophisticated organisations such as Google can still identify you even when you use Private Browsing on a new install of your browser or at a new location (yes, a trifle unsettling), presumably by the signal of operating system, processor type, IP addresses ranges etc..Version: 7.30.0

Great appI like this app. It’s informative, transparent and makes things a little bit easier when clearing history. It’s nice to know that DuckDuckGo blocks trackers and gives me some info on those trackers..Version: 7.65.2

Ducking DuckI’ve switched to the Duck since our ABC provided other reliable search engines and this was over 12 months ago and I’ve been very satisfied with the high performance of my searches and the engine’s blocking ability. Thank you I highly recommend you..Version: 7.67.8

Easy as A B CSo easy to download with added protection & prompt if in the wrong site which track you.Version: 7.62.1

Privacy ~ at last!Known about DDG for a while. So glad to have made the change. Privacy is more important than ever. The major vendors have simply let greed take over. And communities globally are fed up. Thank you. Played with Ecosia for a time - but maybe due to being Australia my searches never matched their tree count !! A little frustration I didn’t need. I’ll stay with DDG - thanks.Version: 7.72.13

Direct access to bookmarksI can directly access my bookmarks with a single press. No annoying sidebar to open and close. I also like the clear user interface, and DDG’S famous privacy protection. My wishlist includes reader view, font size adjustment, and the ability to categorize bookmarks..Version: 7.64.13

DuckDuckGoAbsolutely brilliant… downloaded it, went to one of my favourite sites, and was told that blasted facebook was trying to track me. I have never had an account with the data grabbing lunatics. What I would like to know is if I could transfer all the data from my DuckDuckGo from safari, as I have settings on there that are not available on the app. Apart from that, I would like to give more stars, and if you are thinking about asking to pay for the app, I am well up for that as well. Update 07/03 Dopey me found out how to load my settings from safari, now it is an even better app. There is probably somewhere where I can make a donation, but me being dopey as well as daft, cannot find it..Version: 7.62.1

So glad I found this!I love absolutely everything about DuckDuckGo! I honestly find it much easier to navigate, use and customise than the more common search engines, like google. The biggest perk is obviously the peace of mind that comes knowing you’re not being tracked or getting heaps of ads. It’s a great app as well 👍🏼 Overall, I have nothing but awesome things to say about DuckDuckGo and I wish I’d found it sooner! Love it and I really hope it stays and becomes more known. 10/10 👌🏼.Version: 7.62.1

Gotta improve but GETTING THEREI’ll happily take a performance hit to stop Google. I use DDG in browser on laptop and iPhone. There are issues around image in searches returning as ‘blank’ - yet on google are fine. Smells like foul play by google somehow. Search quality isn’t perfect yet. Invest in your service, ask for payment even but you’ve got to improve constantly just to stand still. Maps is also an obvious issue. Like I said - I can forgive all that for privacy and to stick it to Google..Version: 7.14.2

Sniper Alley to Safety10 x 5* For so long I have felt totally violated under continuous bombardment from targeted advertisers watching... hanging on to my key strokes hoping I’d be their next target, not to purchase the advertised product or service but loitering to pick up my personal data. I delivered free papers as a youngster, they were full of advertisements which was expected as the paper was free, at no time did I enter a home and start rifling through drawers looking for personal details of the household, that would be intrusive, wouldn’t it? After watching the ‘Social Dilemma’ on Netflix I knew something had to change, ‘Duck Duck Go’ is doing it! Since I’ve installed it I’ve not gone back to google/safari, I now feel I’m in a safe place especially with banking, seeing all the followers getting locked out in the search bar is so satisfying. THANK YOU DUCK DUCK GO!.Version: 7.62.7

Great privacyReally enjoy using this private browser .. really don’t like the fact of the Canadian government being to censor everything we now read on the net ...Version: 7.63.10

Why didn’t I do this earlier?!!😱🤯Sick of google and other apps using my data to fine tune their ad campaigns to me to increase profits, squeezing every penny out of me. And what about my civil rights? They know who and what I am better than anyone after God lol! Collecting more data gives them the means to create as many different formulas for me as possible relating and not limited to: psych evaluation, medical condition, likes dislikes, personality type, wealth bracket, intellectual ability/type, current addictions, possible future addictions, vices, virtues...the list is endless..Version: 7.62.7

Would switch, BUT!I would 100% switch to this awesome browser. I love how it forgets everything unless you 'fireproof' a page instead of the other way around! However, the only thing keeping me from switching is Bookmark folders. You guys need to implement this, please! And also an easy way to transfer a favourites to bookmarks as holding down the bookmarks button adds a favourite, but to add a bookmark you have to go to the top-right menu, which feels a bit frustrating. Could I suggest adding 2 icons at the bottom of the Bookmarks pop-up (for easy reach): '🤍' for adding a Favourite and '📖' (or an actual bookmark or corner of a page symbol) for Bookmarks! Love the app! But will stay on Safari until I can add folders :).Version: 7.49.1

DuckDuckGo is top notchI use it all the time!.Version: 7.101.0

Incredible, but just needs one more featureThis browser is absolutely brilliant, I love the unbiased results that you’d normally wouldn’t get with stuff like google. The UI is great and nice to use. My favourite feature is locking the app with Face ID. However, it could be made better if a night mode for websites was introduced like Firefox. This is the feature where websites such as Wikipedia that don’t already have dark mode, get automatically turned dark through the browser. This small addition would make the app even more of a pleasure to use..Version: 7.49.0

Excellent secure browserThe best of the best for private and secure browsing. Other browsers block me from searching health issues but duck duck go returns great results ..Version: 7.61.6

Stop nagging me!!!This would be quite a useful app (at least ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️) except for the constant nagging it does about "adding Duck Duck Go to Safari". If, like me you already use DDG as your preferred search engine from Safari you still get the same nagging even though you have made the requested setting for safari. Really annoying chaps! DDG needs a way to recognise that you have made the setting change or else users will try something else! As a way of punishment I am going to delete the app. Please fix this! Peter 20 May 2017: Despite my rather negative review the developer contacted me in a positive way; this is an indication of a person/organisation that cares about its product. In reply, I will reinstall the DuckDuckGo app and give it another try..Version: 6.0.9

Make the change to DDGI have been using DDG for years and it’s excellent. I am surprised that people say it’s slow, I gave noticed no difference in speed at all compared to Google. It is good NOT to be tracked..Version: 7.61.13

Don’t trust DDG Use TOR with Onion BrowserFrom a friend~ Learn Boolean search terms and use them Your searches are censored You are being directed to sites that don’t contain pertinent information or they are commercial purpose sites.

That history everything you buy sell look at read about, every address phone # ticket bank account any license you’ve had marriage children parents life heath job title mortgage credit card every where you are and have been holding that smart phone or in your vehicle is being tracked. All perfectly legal and your consent isn’t needed despite what you’ve read. We have no rights of privacy..Version: 7.72.6

Good, for unresponsive buttons !Sometimes the button ( being too small, on screen ) are sometimes unresponsive and takes a lot of tapping before they do anything ! Other than that ? It’s very impressive tbh ! A Search Engine that has none of Google’s Antifa Algorithm’s, messing with search results anymore ! Which I’ve started to notice with Google, which was getting very tiresome tbh, that I deleted it. I get what i search for quicker with a more straightforward list of options to choose from. Imagine going to a Public Library but keep getting told, you can’t search that Shelf or Aisle for Books, because all the Writers and Publishers were all guilty of “ Wrongthink “ ? I was never giving this crap when i was young ( before the Internet ) so why are grown Adults being treated like sheeple or worse, Infantilised Morons now by the like of Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others ? I recommend this App for people who’ve had enough of Big Tech Censorship and of being “ Guided “ to the “ Correct “ Sources..Version: 7.24.0

Thank you ever so muchI really love the way that you’re blocking all the inappropriate adds and things I shouldn’t be seeing so, yeah, I just think that everyone should get DuckDuckGo So thank you.Version: 7.57.1

Great So FarSummary: DuckDuckGo has an excellent search algorithm from what I can tell. It is fast, efficient, friendly and helpful. It doesn’t track my searches for someone else for study or profit. Detailed Explanation: I started using DuckDuckGo earlier this year (2020). I highly recommend it for the following reasons. 1) While I have not tested all of the privacy features, based upon the original recommendation given to me to use DuckDuckGo, I like not being tracked for someone else’s Data Analytics exercise, especially for free to them. 2) It’s performed my desired searches well: standard, suggested, alternative completions are given, which have helped me occasionally refine my search string or phrase. The hits are mostly “dead on,” giving me the wanted content; yes, some alternatives may not be what I am desiring. However, that is the contextual nature of knowledge often, and the problem of searching in general: refinement & convergence ability. Extra Info./Suggestions: iPhone & iPad tested — On my iOS enabled devices’ main options bar, I swapped out the Safari icon with DuckDuckGo—that’s how much I like it! I put Safari on the home screen, if I ever need it. My Mac also has DuckDuckGo installed on it as the default search engine, which is where I first installed DuckDuckGo after using it on a PC at work..Version: 7.46.0

A1Stay true we love you DD 👍👍 This is literally one of the best apps these pathetic iPhones are able to download, the one in a small minority of apps on this phone (if you can call it a phone🆘) that really doesn’t track what your doing hah imagine that something available on apple that isn’t thieving your data wow! just make sure Siri🤛 isn't in her primal default ON position in the app settings..Version: 7.35.0

New hereJust learning how to navigate the space so not as easy as previous platform yet but once I’m used to it I’m sure I’ll be running..Version: 7.64.15

Pls bring the old way of putting bookmark and favoriteI like this app a lot and have been using it for a long time. The app is good, convenient and much better then in-phone apps like safari or google. However this recent update on bookmark and favorite has destroyed their convenience. I think it’s better if it was like before where a person can press bookmark, favorite, or both if they want to pick either way or both. The new update where I can favorite a website and it bookmark while I can bookmark and it don’t favorite doesn’t seem to work and every time I had to delete favorite website I also had to go to bookmark to delete it too. It consumes too much time especially for someone like me who has a lot of bookmarks and favorite websites and visits them everyday multiple times so pls bring back the old way of bookmarking and favoriting websites. Thank You.Version: 7.71.0

FantasticThis is a wonderful search engine so wish I had heard of it sooner it was only by accident it was mentioned to me when I was frustrated with for example increasing flight prices when I was researching for dates and going into sites several times. This way of searching offers both privacy and protection and so therefore every search is new so no chance of getting caught out as per above. Previous history is cancelled and the safeguard continues. Thank you very much highly recommend..Version: 7.71.0

Lies !Duck Duck ‘Don’t’ is connected to Google and that does save your history, even after you clear the data in the app. Out of all 10 devices tested the history was found in Chrome after deletion. Metadata scrutinised backs this up. It is NOT private, its a get around to fool those who think they are browsing anonymously. Google is buying up these companies due to provisions in the Patriotic Act. Do not download as data is sent from your phone in sleep mode. Or other devices. Should you believe any answer from DDG then more fool for you !.Version: 7.28.0

Best replacement for googleHad been looking for something that’s an alternative for google The very fact that google didn’t provided it’s app policies on updated iOS App Store went to show how shifty it is as a company which prompted me to delete its services and look for an alternative and it was a bit of a work but found an absolute gem of a search engine and browser.Version: 7.61.3

More Online ChoiceI’d heard about DuckDuckGo a few times, but not being very tech savvy, I didn’t know how or even why I should try it. After an unsuccessful search on a popular search engine already set on my phone, I looked up the DuckDuckGo app. and downloaded it to my phone. There is a tutorial that prompts you the first time you use it. I entered the topic I was trying to research. Oh my gosh, first there were three other companies trying to spy on my activities. Be informed people, it doesn’t matter how innocent your search is, people are watching where you go online. Then I was totally pleased with the new websites that were popping up suddenly. Choice. It’s about choice and receiving more information of different views. I’m a college graduate with 38 years of experience in my field. I know how to wade through documents and make an informed opinion. I’m loving this app..Version: 7.61.11

PrivacySo good to be able to surf knowing I’m not being tracked even though they’ve got all our information! It’s pathetic and criminal how they’ve stolen all our information thanks duck duck go!.Version: 7.48.1

ExcellentVery cool only one suggestion, is there a way to import existing bookmarks from old browser ? Other than that it’s a must have !.Version: 7.19.1

Personal & PrivateWith so much Nefarious behaviour online by alleged respectable companies that provide search engines (mention no names) i am so glad that there is Responsible alternates. I have been using DuckDuckgo for approximately one year now, occasionally at first but after a while it became constantly & consistently. I have deleted my account with the ‘other’ search engine completely now & only use this amazing one. So if like me you value your privacy do yourself a favour and get DuckDuckgo ASAP. I am so happy with this service i would give the company 6 stars if possible..Version: 7.36.0

Overall GoodI like every thing that is provided, and I am glad that the app scans questionable websites to view and inform me of the privacy practices, this can prevent my history from being aggregated and save my device from potentially developing a malicious virus that could overtake my device. And it’s rather simple as well. But I have one complaint: I enjoy the fact that I can courageously venture into the deeper parts of the web to find information for essays, recreation etc., but I would prefer a feature that could be toggled in settings permitting the app to discourage and omit all inappropriate photographs, video, imagery, etc. In other words, I do not want pornographic images to seep into my searches with all the ambiguity in words these days. If you could design a feature to just that, it would be excellent. An even better idea, make the option to create a password as a requirement to turn off the filter, you know, just so that young children will not turn it off and encounter x-rated material. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this..Version: 7.14.1

Just worksIt took a bit to breakaway from google searches but once I cut the chord ddg has been great. Keep up the great effort team and thanks for giving us a great alternative to spyoogle..Version: 7.101.0

Great serviceAmber and the boys are sharp and always ready. Great service delivery and very prompt. Many thanks team. Silvicom LTD.Version: 7.72.13

So far so goodI liked the idea that this app blocks trackers I got sick of every time I did a search I would get an advert for something I may have looked at, it drove me nuts this tracks and blocks them and I haven’t had as many, plus I like how you tap on the flame and it clears your history and you can even see who is tracking you at the beginning of the search bar... It’s a good search engine....Version: 7.61.8

Browser keeps going to blank!I’m really struggling to work with this browser. Fast, yes, when it loads the desired page(s). But I’d say 1/2 of the time I’ve been on it the page loads to blank. Or, even worse, I’m in the middle of an extended search, moving thru various pages and all of a sudden I end up with that darn blank page AND if I go back ALL of my previous pages are now blank as well. ‘Sometimes’ if I close the browser and go back the page reloads, refresh does not do the trick. But, who wants to put up with this? It’s the most infuriating situation when this occurs and it’s happened to me now on way too many occasions. I looked thru the page on how to “send feedback” but did not see DuckDuckGo Mobil listed within those items. I’m beyond frustrated with this browser😩.Version: 7.64.2

Enjoying the experienceGot sick of google and the sharing of my search information for their greed marketing .. so I switched and fell better for it... if 30%of us all switched than alphabet , google owners would start to rethink how they share our search data . Like face book they have too much control.Version: 7.36.0

Great app and browserSuch a nice experience searching for things and not having tons of advertisements shoved down your throat. Easy to use and clearly shows what it is blocking on each site you are going too.Version: 7.70.18

O.O Please Read Before DownloadingIts good but when i tries to search up "Gacha Life" it came up with inappropriate videos wich are really REALLY NOT MENT FOR KIDS!!! Either add a "block creator" option or add a "Child Safe Mode" Anyway, Its a great app. anyways, the good thing is i can watch my videos knowing a duck 🦆 is helping me to stay safe on the web and no adds thats a bonus and you can even change the app icon colour!.Version: 7.63.6

Loving itI like Duck Duck Go because I like my privacy. I really don’t like thinking about the creeps that may hack into my life. Anyone that tracks me on the internet can’t be good for me. I just can’t imagine why people would want to see what I’m doing. I’m just an ordinary person doing what most people do. I also hate to think that advertising might avoid me merely because their program doesn’t include people like me. Isn’t that like racism? I change a lot because I like variety, without the ad, I probably won’t know about the product and so I will not buy it or suggest it to someone that my all powerful brain decides is appropriate. I don’t want to be overwhelmed with ads, please change them for variety. If I search for something, I may be looking for an ad, but not too many. I think I’d rather have untargeted ads so I know what is available. Sometimes, I really don’t want any ads. If I have money, I don’t mind paying to turn them off. But don’t charge me and advertise, that’s probably taking advantage of me. Unless the charge is small, more to deter waste than for profit. Thanks Lydia.Version: 7.70.17

Thanks for your years of dedication!RE:Updated Second Review. I love DuckDuckGo & have been with you guys from day one. I just wanted to stop in to say thank you again for many years of safe web browsing on mine & my family's Apple mobile & computer home devices. As a loyal user of DuckDuckGo, my dedication to this browser naturally trickled down to my adult tech professional children, my grandchildren & many friends. That says a lot about your integrity & continued foresight in maintaining the upmost safe web browsing practices. Simply put, no one does it better. The best to all of you at DuckDuckGo going forward in, Sincerely, CSJ Old Review: I love you guys and have for as long as I can remember (13 years). I keep spreading the word to family members, friends and beyond. Now they have also been spreading the word about DuckDuckGo. It’s been a joy to see you evolve and continue to dedicate yourselves by elevating the user experience to a such more enjoyable secure level. How do I thank thee? Finally, to see your team get the due respect amongst the dinosaurs of browsers, is truly satisfying. With the increased choices & options by adding you to all my Apple devices is so pleasing to myself and others. Just shows you that a company like Apple trusts you to be on there devices says something. Congratulations! CJ.Version: 7.64.8

Well-designed browser, plus essential search engineDuckDuckGo is of course essential if you care about your privacy on the internet - and hate tech monopolies or Big Data in general. The overall experience is not quite as good as Google, which isn’t surprising, but in spite of this the browser is thoughtfully designed and easy to use. Recommended..Version: 7.38.0

Ios 14Hi can you please add sync function so we can have same bookmarks and tabs across ios devices. It would really help me.Version: 7.53.0

IPhone 13 controls everything I do with this app.If I try to upload an image into Google Images with this browser, my iPhone 13 intervenes and prevents me from doing so. A message window opens and stays “Would you like to leave DuckDuckGo to view this content?” To answer, I’m given 2 option buttons to tap, CANCEL and OPEN. If I tap open, it takes me to the App Store to download Google. If I tap CANCEL, the screen goes blank momentarily, then the same message window reappears, again Ana again, over and over. It is impossible to stop this from happening, and I cannot find any setting within the app to prevent it. I’ve given up. No matter what I do with this app, my iPhone 13 knows what I’m doing and at any time it can stop me from doing what I’m attempting to do. Oddly enough when using my older iPad I can upload images to Google Images and the iPad does not interfere. I’m stumped. I have no idea what the problem is with my iPhone 13 and the DuckDuckGo app, but it is very frustrating. Can anyone help?.Version: 7.70.12

Make the change nowNo adds flashing up, total privacy, as it should be.Version: 7.59.0

It’s greatI’ve recently switched from google to DuckDuckGo and I’ve gotta say it’s improved so much since I first used it several years ago. The reason it has 4 stars instead of 5 is that it could use a lot of features present in other search engines like google. Features at the top of my list as most desired are: —Translate pages (make it available EVERYWHERE please!) —Ability to customize fonts (I don’t have the best vision so being able to customize the fonts on all sites across the web would be immensely helpful.) —Be able to swipe up to get rid of the search bar (I know you can just scroll down to get rid of it however sometimes I don’t have enough space to and giving us the option to swipe up would be great.) —Make changing the theme permanent ( I don’t know if everyone has this problem but my device has the dark/light theme switch each day and night and it changes for DuckDuckGo as well. However, I don’t want a dark theme when browsing so I disable it but it always seems to be back every time and I don’t know how to permanently get rid of it. —When closing tabs, make it less glitchy (whenever I quickly swipe a tab closed it glitches a little before leaving so I hope that can be smoothed out a bit.) I’ll be sure to change my review to 5 stars once these are addressed, thanks!.Version: 7.62.7

I’d give it all the stars, but…Missing features like bookmarks and history syncing between different platforms made me rate it only 4. Hope that will be addressed soon by the developers and then there will be nothing better out there!.Version: 7.81.0

The best iOS browser for my needs.Apple, I can’t believe it! I wrote a review and saved it. I then accidentally touched the star rating and discovered that that erased my review!!!! Seriously? Duckduckgo’s search file result handling is the best and most intelligent of all iOS browsers I’ve found. I tried Firehand, Kobe, Aloha (which is exactly what I did with it), Safari, etc. So many browsers copy Safari and the frustrating and inferior split screen design. The one thing I’d like to see changed is viewing the output of a file search for images when you select View File. That you would be to be able to swipe laterally and still to be able to navigate through the image search output without having to exit View File to do that. PS - I almost forgot. Thank you for displaying the image files resolution so you don’t waste your time opening low resolution images! 👍.Version: 7.63.13

Happy customer 😊I’ve been using Duck duck go, for a while now, on my Safari browser. Really like that it tells you who is tracking you and that my browsing is private. The big companies have gathered far too much info on people and now even the smallest bit of privacy is most welcome. I have just recently downloaded the app, it is brilliant, really user friendly and I love the duck popping up telling me the nasty companies trying to track me. I’ve already been recommending to friends and family..Version: 7.47.2

A lot better than Google!I love this app as compared with Google because it’s more ethical, better privacy, and it doesn’t filter out your search as much as the Google algorithm, however it often doesn’t display websites as easy as Google when searching specifically for something like an article or website ha.Version: 7.64.4

Finally I have secure browsing! THE BEST!I was so annoyed that when I searched for a product that I would be bombarded with adds ACROSS DIFFERENT PLATFORMS straight after. I had a vpn but it did not help.... I was also annoyed that when I tried to look at current affairs I was fed a skewed and biased result. I tried bing, it was ok but not a nice app to use. I heard about DuckDuckGo and because of the name never tried it. After trying to find news about a major election I finally had enough and tried DuckDuckGo. Well finally the adds have stopped! Finally I can see news stories showing all opinions so that I can make my own decision on which opinion is true. I have set DuckDuckGo as my default search engine everywhere and I like that I can even see when some trackers have been blocked and if a site is unsafe. So highly recommended I wish I had downloaded this long ago. Thank you to the developers this is the BEST app I have full stop. Everyone must use this for privacy and security..Version: 7.61.6

Two improvementsThe page back and forward buttons on this browser do not offer a history option. I.e on Safari if you hold and press the back or forward button, you can view and scroll through the pages that you travelled to get to the current pageyou are on. Since making DDG my default browser on all my iOS 14 devices, I’ve found myself glued to pages that use JavaScript to defeat history navigation. The back button merely refreshes the page you are on. Safari introduced a page font size adjust button and it would be great if DDG had this for those of us with failing eyesight. For the above reasons I can’t give a top score, but it’s a worthy 4/5..Version: 7.54.0

Absolutely amazingI love the fact the it’s so easy to clear all data, helps me feel comfortable with its security. I love how it shows me who would be tracking me on different websites. I love the fact that it gives rating for different website security. Also the layout is very comfortable and easy to get used to (unlike some others). Only problem I can find is in terms of image saving - namely that there isn’t the option to. But I don’t think it’s worth taking away a star just for that so 5/5 stars!!!.Version: 7.63.1
