DuchDuckGo now also blocks Microsoft

DuckDuckGo is a website that allows you to search the web without tracking – at least in theory. The site has so far focused mainly on Google, which is why it may not permanently block cookies and other solutions used by Microsoft. This is no coincidence; of course, the developer had/had an agreement with the Windows developer to promote LinkedIn content, for example. But now there is a change: the iOS, Android, and macOS browsers will block all tracking technologies from Microsoft.

About DuckDuckGo


DuckDuckGo is a search engine that was founded in 2008 by Gabriel Weinberg. The company is headquartered in Pennsylvania. DuckDuckGo has been gaining popularity recently as an alternative to Google and other major search engines. One thing that sets DuckDuckGo apart is that it does not track its users. Your search history is not stored or used to personalize your results. DuckDuckGo also does not show ads based on your search history. These features make DuckDuckGo an excellent choice for people concerned about privacy and who want a more private browsing experience.


Although it’s unclear how effective DuckDuckGo’s new Microsoft blocking feature will be, it’s a step in the right direction for privacy-conscious web users. With more and more people becoming aware of online tracking and how their data is being used, it’s good to see a company taking action to protect its users’ privacy. Let’s hope that other companies follow suit and that we can enjoy more privacy when browsing the web.
