    I’m confused. I’m using a notebook computer with Windows 10. I downloaded DDG search engine, but I’m pretty sure I’m going through Chrome to get it. I would like to not have Chrome as my browser, as I assume I am still subject to Chrome’s surveillance and data collection, even while using the DDG search engine. Is that true? How would I go about having DDG as my browser?

      Margaret,

      Browser developers have the option to remove the tracking and data collecting parts from the Chromium engine if they wish to. Brave browser certainly does. I’m not sure about DuckDuckGo but it would be a pretty pointless browser if they didn’t remove this.

    I’m using DDG on my iPad. Some things I like. The one-tap button to erase browsing data should be used by more browsers. Safari iOS requires trawling through the settings to delete this data – very long-winded. A lot of features need a few clicks to use like tabs and share that is a little annoying. The biggest issue is the bookmarks. They are quite basic and don’t allow you to create folders. Overall, this is a very good browser. Unlike other private browsers, it is full of the useful features we take for granted, shame about the bookmarks though.

    How do I disable “suggestions” in duck duck? They are distracting and irritating.
