DuckDuckGo is the search engine that doesn't track you. Our Search & Stories app offers you real privacy with smarter search and stories you'll love!
Real Privacy. From funny videos to health and finance questions, searches are a reflection of your personal life. That's why we don't collect or share your personal information:
• We don't track you - http://donttrack.us/
• We don't filter bubble you - http://dontbubble.us/
Smarter Search. We help you get where you want to go in fewer clicks. We do that through:
• Instant answers from hundreds of sources.
• Auto-suggest featuring our !bang commands that help you search directly on thousands of other sites.
Stories you'll love. We feature the most enjoyed stories from hand-crafted sources:
• #1 stories like most emailed or upvoted.
• Readability view for faster reading.
You can always reach us at https://duckduckgo.com/feedback, or via email at email@example.com. We listen!
Disclaimer: While we can and will ensure your privacy at DuckDuckGo, we cannot ensure that other sites you visit from the app will similarly respect your privacy.
What's New in Version 6.0.2
Quack! We're excited to announce DuckDuckGo's reimagined Search & Stories app. Together with new visuals we've greatly improved the overall navigation of the app, and did we mention we now support iPad too? Version 6.0.2 includes 3D Touch shortcuts and some bug fixes for the mosaic story view.
If you enjoy using our app, consider leaving a review in the App Store. It really helps! If you're a developer, check out the source code for our app and join the open source effort at github.com/duckduckgo/ios
Don't have to feel all paranoid anymore!
Can't recommend it enough! It's safer, faster, & more efficient than its competitors! Invisible surfing!
We've had it for probably 4 years now & haven't had a computer glitch since. (Our old browser brought viruses, spyware, & repair bills several times a year. Our computer was agonizingly slow & so was our internet use. This was from that popular "free" search engine most people use.)
Also, I just hate the idea of those who have no right to, knowing information about me & my loved ones that we didn't volunteer. Why isn't it considered breaking-&-entering or theft when complete strangers sneak onto someone else's computer, "place" "cookies" that use up someone else's purchased memory & negatively affect someone else's computer use, or listen & watch someone else's family by commandeering someone else's camera & software? They weren't given a password or key, weren't given permission, or offered a place to store their things. If a person physically entered your house that way, he'd be arrested! DuckDuckGo recognizes this as a violation & prevents advertisers, pervs, & advertising pervs from doing this.
The only complaint I have is, the iPhone version doesn't have all the same features the app has for computers & other devices. On this version there's no parental control, site-blocking, or ad opt-outs/preferences on the settings.
Nice Search Engine but leftist news stories dominate homepage
I like the search engine well enough for the fact that it doesn't track me and use my information to market crap to me, etc, but I could do without the liberal leaning bias news stories that dominate the home page. They post negative stories about those on the right but only positive stories and articles about those on the left. It's very obvious and almost annoying enough for me to find another search engine and not recommend them to others.
Privacy & stories
I'm here for enhanced privacy. That the browser works cleanly and is fast helps. To my surprise I love the stories feature, and it is now my primary news feed. Better than RSS.
Requests: 1. When I scroll in iOS, it thinks I'm trying to share any images. This is fatally bad in google's image search. Halp? 2. Integrate with Disconnect's block list (which Apple may be disallowing).
Thanks to Gabe & the team for a great product!
