Gabriel Weinberg, the founder of DuckDuckGo, used to run the Names Database. This was a website that aimed to connect people who had lost contact by gathering lots and lots of e-mail addresses. Getting access could be done by either paying money, or submitting lots of e-mail addresses of other people. Since the service revolved around gathering personal information, it is very suspicious for Gabriel Weinberg to start a business that is privacy-oriented.

DuckDuckGo used to set a tracking cookie, even though they claimed they didn't. This was done by a third party they cooperate with, which means that it wasn't necessarily intentional, but if it's unintentional, it shows a worrying lack of care.

DuckDuckGo is based in the US. This makes it really easy for the NSA to compromise it. If it were based in the EU, for example, the NSA wouldn't have the legal power to force them to log everything without telling anyone. This wouldn't guarantee privacy, but it would make it a lot more plausible. Instead, they're based in the US, which means that the NSA can do whatever they want with them. There are secure search engines that are not based in the US.

might not be so dangerous, but US based so NSA spying at any time really regardless of what one search engine says, but they do seem the least amounts of tracking, they still track as some the things i use pick them up, better in places though and comes up with trump as idiot in searches, so ok to usesmiley

@👽GEMINI👽 Its quite private too, has the typical 2 adverts that is not so great, but almost as few trackers as duck duck go, about the same depends who the trakers all are at the end of it and their end goals, it does seem to be like others, i would say at this time, for the number of trackers seen, duck duck, is just a bit more private than startpage, from what i see anyway
