If you compare DuckDuckGo to Google and other mainstream search engines, it is relatively secure, and you are not at risk of compromising your privacy.

We all know the feeling of paranoia we get when we hand over our personal information to a website. We think, “what if they sell my data?” or “what if this website is hacked and my information is leaked?” 

These are valid concerns; hence, many people have turned to DuckDuckGo in recent years as their go-to search engine. With DuckDuckGo, you don’t have to worry about your privacy. In this detailed review, we’ll take a look at what makes DuckDuckGo so great and how it can benefit you.
