The description of DuckDuckGo App
DuckDuckGo is a privacy-focus search engine app that allows users to surf the internet safely.
-- Untracked search: With the DuckDuckGo app, users are able to visit their favorite websites privately. The app will block trackers so they can't spy on users. Besides, All DuckDuckGo searches are anonymous and it never stores your search history.
-- Privacy Grade: Whenever you enter a website, the DuckDuckGo app will generate a privacy Grade rating from “A” to “F,” with A being the safest. Users can check the URL bar to see who is trying to track them and how many trackers have been blocked successfully by DuckDuckGo.
-- !Bangs: Bang or "!" is the shortcut that quickly takes you to search the results of a specific website. For example, you will be redirected to amazon's result page about shoes after typing "!amazon shoes" in the search bar of DuckDuckGo.
-- Burn Bar: Since personal data can built up in your browser, the burn bar can help you close your tabs and burn all the browsing data away.
-- Instant Answers: Similar to Google, the DuckDuckGo app includes "Instant Answers" on the search results page, making it a useful feature for users to find an answer easily.
-- More Features: There are many more features waiting for you to discover, such as bookmarks, dark mode, search safety level, etc.
