More details about DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

Are you tired of being tracked online We can help. DuckDuckGo believes online privacy should not be complicated. Our extension is designed to protect your privacy in Chrome. These privacy essentials work together to prevent your personal data from being exposed online.






  • Search with DuckDuckGo By Default — Install, and we'll change your default search engine to DuckDuckGo Search. This will allow you to start Internet searches without being tracked.

  • Stop Online Tracking — Block hidden trackers lurking at websites you visit (e.g. when you click search results). These trackers can be stopped before companies use shady tactics to collect your data.

  • Force Encryption — Forbid sites from using encrypted connections whenever possible. Unwanted network snoopers like Internet Service Providers won't have the ability to track which pages you visit or what you do once there.

  • Signal Your Privacy Preference (GPC) — incorporated into the extension, Global Privacy Control is designed to allow you to express your legal opt out rights. This will inform websites that they cannot sell or share personal information you provide under any future legal frameworks (e.g. GDPR, CCPA) in different states or countries.

  • DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials fulfills its single purpose to provide seamless protection for Chrome users' privacy. It's privacy, simplified.




Tracker blocking requires some permissions. However, these permissions only work on your local device. As per our strict privacy policies, we do not share or collect any browsing information.
