Privacy, simplified.

At DuckDuckGo, we believe the Internet shouldn't feel so creepy, and getting the privacy you deserve online should be as simple as closing the blinds.

Our app provides the privacy essentials you need to seamlessly take control of your personal information as you search and browse the web, no matter where the Internet takes you:
• Escape Advertising Tracker Networks — Our Privacy Protection will block all the hidden third-party trackers we can find, exposing the major advertising networks tracking you over time, so that you can track who's trying to track you.
• Increase Encryption Protection — We force sites to use an encrypted connection where available, protecting your data from prying eyes, like ISPs.
• Search Privately — You share your most personal information with your search engine, like your financial, medical, and political questions. What you search for is your own business, which is why DuckDuckGo search doesn't track you. Ever.
• Decode Privacy Policies — We’ve partnered with Terms of Service Didn't Read to include their scores and labels of website terms of service and privacy policies, where available.

As you search and browse, the DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser shows you a Privacy Grade rating when you visit a website (A-F). This rating lets you see how protected you are at a glance, dig into the details to see who we caught trying to track you, and learn how we enhanced the underlying site's privacy measures. The Privacy Grade is scored automatically based on the prevalence of hidden tracker networks, encryption availability, and website privacy practices.

Our app provides standard browsing functionality including tabs, bookmarks and autocomplete. In addition to strong Privacy Protection as described above, we also packed in a Fire Button that allows you to clear all your tabs and data with one tap.

Too many people believe you simply can’t expect privacy on the Internet. We're fighting to change that, and have made it our mission to set a new standard of trust online. Install DuckDuckGo and take back your privacy!

Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

4 ★I decided I didn't want Google following my every move and all the ads that come with it. Also, I don't like the way it steers me to websites that Google wants me to see and I cannot access some conservative websites on Google. DuckDuckGo gives me great access and privacy. so far, so good!
2 ★more specific options that Chrome makes available would be helpful ie: translation of foreign language sites and a browsing history archive (I know that's the whole point of browsing data collection) are two things I miss! Like image insertion would be awesome!!! And really how Private is this app when one MUST HAVE CHROME... The only thing i'm finding helpful at this point is the search isn't CENSORING AS MUCH in the results!!!
5 ★I like it for several reasons 1. This search engine out performs Google because so far it's not biased. 2.Google is becoming anti-American and pro Chinese (reflects their censorship) 3.I can no longer support Google because they're increasingly against free speech. (I moved from a communist country and I know the dangers of socialism)
5 ★I love that no ads are popping up, i find all i want and more then i expected on duckduckgo. I feel secure and totally private while using this search engine it's the best , i highly recommend everyone to download duckducko go. I have had my family and friends download it they love it too. GREAT JOB !
1 ★Rubbish since last update. Constantly freezing & crashing now. Most bookmarks will not open. I wish I had a backup of an older version! And after latest version, srill crashing! And for the third time still unuseable on my Motorola running Android 7.1. How this app has a 4.7 rating is beyond me!
1 ★the app takes several times just to get the app to open, and when it does it doesn't load some (if any ) web pages. At once I loved my privacy with Duck duck go, but now its just annoying! Deleted and looking for new browser ( and this is after several months and updates)
5 ★You know, even if it's bogus (which I doubt because of the apps hook), it's not just the navigational smoothness but the feel of it as you go through your surf routine seems a whole lot more secure than the everyday over-the-counter browser - so naturally, security and peace of mind online are strolling hand-in-hand - so glad I found a browser I feel good about using on a constant basis!!!
5 ★I think that this is a great app. I use it all the time in replacement of Google, but I have two complaints. Every time I use Swipe, and adds the words but doesn't add the space, whereas everything else adds a space when I use Swipe. Also, when I'm looking up pictures, I normally press and hold and a little thing will pop up giving you the option to share or download the picture, but when I do it on this app, it doesn't work. Those two things are my only problems. Trustworthy App! 👍
4 ★It's a great app and a good replacement for Google. I'm glad I dont get 3 adds and manipulate searches. I do miss the convience though, Google was really good for helping me spell words with auto fill and with duck I have to enter and search even if I cant fathom how to spell a word. Adding a spellcheck function with a dropdown bar for large vocabulary words would be great.
4 ★I haven't seen enough nor paid enough attention to ads to know their content. Ive been seeing English in every aspect I've used so far, but there's not a "yes" option available. I need to actually have a complete positive experience here to rate it accurately.
5 ★Flawless. Initially I was concerned about replacing Google Chrome with this application, but to be totally honest I am so much happier with this browser. Thee way Facebook, Microsoft and Google etc are collecting our data, then use it to send targeted ads, just creeps me out. I know that if you're not doing anything wrong (i.e. watching Clown 🤡 snuff porn movies lol 😜) you shouldn't have anything to worry about, but I just don't agree with it. Can't recommend this highly enough. 10 out of 10.
5 ★Easy, fast, and it protects my privacy. Only one UI thing, what most of all browsers are still doing, and I just can't understand there reason. 😅 How you think about to move the address/search bar from the top to the bottom? Smartphone screens are since long not 3inch anymore, most people are using there thumbs, a address/search bar on the top of the screen is just difficult to reach, except you move your whole phone, or use both hands. 😐 And maybe a swipe from left/right to switch between tabs, and swipe down to refresh the page would be great.
