DuckDuckGo’s USP

The key selling point of DDG is its privacy policies. Users can conduct a search without their personal information being collected or sold for advertisements.


As people are becoming more aware of the fact that how the companies are using their data it appears they’re making conscious decisions before choosing a service.

It is important for the people to know what they’re signing to big tech has in its terms and conditions. Antitrust investigations on companies like Facebook, Amazon, Apple, and Google brought their policies to the forefront.

DuckDuckGo’s growth has been steady enough to observe that it will be constant. To achieve this growth DuckDuckGo had to spend years, it’s not something that occurred without any forethought.
