  • do you use DuckDuckGo?
    « on: July 19, 2016, 10:28:17 am »
    Hi there,

    I recently switched to DuckDuckGo and I was wondering if people know about this search engine.

    From their PP:

    "At other search engines, when you do a search and then click on a link, your search terms are sent to that site you clicked on (in the HTTP referrer header). We call this sharing of personal information "search leakage."

    For example, when you search for something private, you are sharing that private search not only with your search engine, but also with all the sites that you clicked on (for that search).

    In addition, when you visit any site, your computer automatically sends information about it to that site (including your User agent and IP address). This information can often be used to identify you directly." etc

    More here: https://start.duckduckgo.com/privacy

    Also, I read that they have implemented Tor but I can't find it  :-\ Can you help?

    Hi gal,

    This is what I found: https://techcrunch.com/2016/05/31/tor-switches-to-duckduckgo-search-results-by-default/
    It seems that Tor has switched to DuckDuckGo results by default :)

    DDG is also the default search engine in a variety of conservative Gnu/Linux and other free/open-source UNIX-Like operating system distributions ;)
