DuckDuckGo

A privacy-focused search engine from DuckDuckGo, Inc. that does not track users or store search history. Introduced in 2008, DuckDuckGo is an app for iOS and Android and an extension to the Chrome browser for desktop use. Search results are not based on the user's profile, and everyone receives the same set of answers from the same query.

DuckDuckGo uses the Bing, Yahoo! and Yandex (Russian) search engines, as well as other sources. There are three URLs for the website: www.duckduckgo.com, www.duck.com and www.ddg.gg. See do-not-track and privacy browser.
