Today, the internet has entered almost every home. With the widespread use of the internet, various problems come around. These problems include cyber attacks, privacy, censorship, etc. According to many independent research organizations, Google ranks first among the most clicked sites. Google has many competitors, and among them there is a search engine that considers itself unrivaled in terms of privacy, DuckDuckGo.
Difference of DuckDuckGo from other search engines
With Web 3.0, which is the future of the Internet, the importance of privacy will increase. Although companies take cyber security measures for themselves, this is sometimes not enough. Compared to large companies, people are generally less targeted for cyber attacks. But that doesn’t mean their privacy is secure. Therefore, at this point, we must protect ourselves as internet users.
Among the things we will do for this purpose are: Keeping our passwords different, using two-factor authentication, and not shopping from sites we do not trust. But are these enough? Have you ever questioned the security of the sites we are a member of and the applications we use for our private messaging?
A new search engine DuckDuckGo has been in operation since 2008 against the most used search engine Google. What makes it special is that it in no way monitors the search history of its users and blocks data breaching sites.
DuckDuckGo also has an app for mobile users. We know that Google makes enormous profits from advertising revenues. We have all experienced that the things we search for on Google appear as advertisements on many platforms. This situation exists in almost every big technology company so that you may be paying the fee with your information in a free application.
We know that DuckDuckGo is more deficient in indexing (searching results) than Google. That’s why he can’t compete with Google. But would you put your security concerns first and use DuckDuckGo? Please share with us in the comments.
