Start using DuckDuckGo as your search engine, it’s easy to switch

I can highly recommend using the search engine DuckDuckGo instead of Google. You can easily change to DuckDuckGo as your default search engine on your iPhone. The video below shows how.

The reason why you should use DuckDuckGo instead of Google is because it doesn't track you and you have full privacy when using it.

When you are using Google, they will know all about you, and also sell the data they have about you to advertising companies.

DuckDuckGo says:

You deserve privacy. Companies are making money off of your private information online without your consent.

At DuckDuckGo, we don’t think the Internet should feel so creepy and getting the privacy you deserve online should be as simple as closing the blinds.

And DuckDuckGo also has some nifty features like Bangs that makes it possible to search in other search engines directly from DuckDuckGo when you need to. Even my website svartling.net has it's own Bang. If you type !svartling before the words you want to search with, you will search for content on my website! That's cool :)

DuckDuckGo says:

Bangs are shortcuts that quickly take you to search results on other sites. For example, when you know you want to search on another site like Wikipedia or Amazon, our bangs get you there fastest. A search for !w filter bubble will take you directly to Wikipedia.

Remember, though, because your search is actually taking place on that other site, you are subject to that site’s policies, including its data collection practices.

A few examples of Bangs are !g for google, !w for Wikipedia, and of course !svartling for svartling.net

So, now go and switch to DuckDuckGo on your computers and mobile devices. Here is how to do it on your iPhone:
