Security and anonymous search have become a big issue. The main reason for this is that accounts are being hacked all the time, people lose their phones, or even forget to logout of their accounts on shared computers, and even use predictable passwords, which means even robots can figure out their account passwords.
Sites like Google log your search queries, it helps them to deliver better ads when a logged in user is viewing a website that uses their Adsense Banner Adds system, the problem is tha t people don’t really have much of a choice in deciding what information can and cannot be logged.
Recently with all the Facebook spying and other serviced being massively hacked it seems people began to really feel worried about their private information. After all if you have access to someones search you can find out amazing things about this persons personal interests and even about family problems, health issues, financial issues, and nobody wants to be exploited by any of that.
At first people were not so concenrned because they thought there was some level of security in the major big websites, however from time to time major brand websites have been hacked and their costumer information exposed, this leads to makjor concerns about how to go about the Internet shopping online, specially if you use the same retail website to buy many difrent things.
One action that can help avoid your information from being spread to the world is by limiting who knows about your search queries, this can be done by using a website which has been tailoreed for this situation.
DuckDuckGo is a search engine diferent from many others, it does not log your searches, which means you can search for almost anything and the website will not keep a log to your profile, whats best is that DuckDuckGo has a great big database of sites, and today, most of the searches you make will most likely find excelente results, making this service a very usefull website.
Another great option that DDG uses is the long scroll in the results pages, you just need to scroll down the page for more results to show up on your screen.
The DuckDuckGo website has several options and articles to help website owners in including their site on the search engine, which means it is actually working hard to receive and index information about websites.
Recently it has been said that DuckDuckGo has grown tremendously in search engine terms, receinving a lot of search queries from all over the world.
The website adapts and automaticaly changed the language of the whole sitw interface depending on what coutry your browser is configured, so you can expect to find your DuckDuckGo personalized to your native language, which is also great. This will help many people who are not familiar with english to have a chance to use the site in their own language.
If you are used to using your browsers built in options for search, you can install DuckDuckGo extension and plugins which are available for FireFox and Chrome.
After installing the extension or plugin in your browser you will be able to use DDG by default, the results are very good and you probably won’t feel the need to use other search engines, although it still is best to always make searches in more than one place.
