If you are concerned about online security then this article can be very beneficial for you.  There's always something going on with Google with regards to online privacy, and you can use DuckDuckGo to ease it. So let's know what is DuckDuckGo?

What is DuckDuckGo?

DuckDuckGo is a web search engine similar to Google. That is, a website where you can find the things you need with the help of internet. There are many such search engines in the market. Among them Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex are very popular.

Most of the people in India use Google search engine. Along with Google, Bing is used more in America and Europe. The same Yandex search engine is used in Russia. Chinese people use their own Baidu search engine because of the ban on Google in China.

Like all these search engines, DuckDuckGo is also a search engine. Although it is not as popular as Google, millions of people in Western countries are still using DuckDuckGo. Privacy is the reason for its growing popularity in Western countries. Due to this particular reason, now many internet users in India are using DuckDuckGo. Before knowing more about DuckDuckGo, let us know a little about its history.

History of DuckDuckGo

DuckDuckGo was founded on 25 September 2008 by Gabriel Winberg. That is, about a decade ago this search engine was established. DuckDuckGo was named after the children's cartoon TV show DuckDuckGoose. As of 2011, DuckDuckGo was not receiving any funding. Gabriel Winberg kept the website running with his own money which was a difficult task. Later in October 2011, a US company named Union Square Ventures showed interest in and invested in DuckDuckGo.

This investment by Union Company proved to be a lifeblood for DuckDuckGo. After receiving the investment, Gabriel began expanding DuckDuckGo. Gabriel's hard work made DuckDuckGo a success. In 2012, 1.5 million people started searching DuckDuckGo every day. With this the company made a good profit of 1,15000 USD. After this, the customers of DuckDuckGo kept increasing.

On 18 September 2014, the Apple company named DuckDuckGo as an alternative search engine in its browser Safari. On November 10 this year, Mozilla named DuckDuckGo as an alternative search engine in its Firefox browser. On 30 May 2016, the Tor company declared DuckDuckGo the default browser in its Tor browser.

Day by day the popularity of DuckDuckGo increased. People started considering DuckDuckGo more secure than Google. For this reason, every day more than 30 million people search on DuckDuckGo every day. It is much less than Google. But this number is increasing day by day.

Why are people preferring DuckDuckGo to Google?

It is very difficult to use the Internet without a search engine. A search engine is a tool that cuts all types of information on the Internet and sets it in a pattern. Later this search engine delivers the information according to the need of the user.

The search engine is no less than a boon for the internet user. But many times these search engines inadvertently harm their users. Search engines collect personal data of their users and use it for their own benefit. This hurts the privacy of the user.

For example, whenever we do some search on Google search engine or search any product. Then Google saves our product information on its servers. This makes it easier for Google to advertise. Also, Google holds our personal information.

Google's algorithm works in such a way that it contains all our possible information. Like our name, address, mobile number, our profession, what we eat, what language we speak, what clothes we wear, all these things are known to Google.

Because of this our privacy gets hurt. For this reason, there is a feeling of hatred towards Google among the people of Western countries and they are liking Google's DuckDuckGo.

What is the difference between DuckDuckGo and Google?

The real reason for the growing popularity of DuckDuckGo is its privacy feature. If you use Google, then Google gets all your information. That is, Google is tracking you all the time.

Google knows what your name is, what work you do, where you live, what you're looking for on the Internet, what you're looking for or buying. Google keeps every information of its customer. With the help of which he can show his ability. Using Google is a threat to your privacy. If it doesn't matter to you, that's a different matter.

Many people are angry with this arbitrariness of Google. For many people their privacy is very important. They don't want someone to keep an eye on them every time. That's why many people in Europe and America don't use Google.

While on one hand Google destroys your privacy, on the other hand DuckDuckGo maintains your privacy. DuckDuckGo does not collect any of your personal and personal information.

DuckDuckGo does not ask you for your location. No, tracks your IP address. No, keeps track of your search history. That is, DuckDuckGo gives complete privacy to its customers. On DuckDuckGo you can search for anything you want without anyone noticing.

There's no one here to track you and your web searches. Because of this feature many people are using DuckDuckGo.
