DuckDuckGo is the most popular Google search engine analogue in Europe. This is due to the desire of developers to protect the privacy of millions of their users. The new initiative of DuckDuckGo will allow to create the Internet without tracking activity.
According to DuckDuckGo, there are 5326 domains on the Internet, which use 1727 companies and organizations to track the activity of each user on the Internet. This and other information is presented in a special set of tools Tracker Radar, which is now available to a wide range of people.
The first interested in the tool was the creators of the Vivaldi browser, who reported that they have already implemented Tracker Radar in their system. According to representatives of DuckDuckGo, the online advertising industry is one of the largest offenders of privacy. As an example of the desire to improve the level of protection of personal data is given by Apple, as well as Google and Facebook, which said they consider this area a top priority.
DuckDuckGo says it is important to increase the level of trust on the Internet. The company itself broadcasts advertisements it receives from Microsoft, but it does so on the basis of search queries rather than other personal information. Microsoft representatives indicate that many people use tracking blockers. However, in their opinion, this often causes more problems because such tools prevent them from making transactions, watching videos, and other activities on the Internet. Tracker Radar solves all of these problems and many more. For individuals, it is completely free. For those who want to use it for commercial purposes, a licensing system is offered.
