My thanks to DuckDuckGo for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. DuckDuckGo is the search engine that doesn’t track you. DuckDuckGo and Safari’s Intelligent Tracking Prevention together solve the top three private browsing misconceptions:
- 41% of users believe private browsing prevents websites tracking them.
- 39% of users believe private browsing prevents ads from tracking them.
- 35% of users believe private browsing prevents a search engine from knowing their searches.
None of those things are true. I’ve been using DuckDuckGo as my primary web search engine since 2015, and I haven’t looked back.
