DuckDuckGo - Definition from the Hotspot Shield Encyclopedia

DuckDuckGo is an alternative search engine that aims to provide users with privacy and also remove the restrictions that modern search engines do by “personalization”, often resulting in a filter bubble.

The search engine ensures that it provides the same search results for everyone regardless of the users location or personal preferences. DuckDuckGo also tries to index content that has quality and is relevant as opposed to simply indexing every site that is somewhat related to a subject. The search engine was created in 2008 and the businesses HQ is in Pennsylvania, US. DuckDuckGo also provides an anonymous service that connects through the Tor Hidden Services, and it does not log any IP addresses or personal data of its users.
