The story so far

DuckDuckGo is the Internet privacy company for everyone who's had enough of hidden online tracking and wants to take back their privacy now. For over a decade, they’ve built products, created new technology, and worked with policymakers to make online privacy simple and accessible for all. Every day, millions of people rely on their free all-in-one solution (private search engine, tracker blocker, mobile browser) to stay private online. In one download they deliver privacy, simplified.

In 2019, the company broke 1 billion in searches a month for the first time.
