DuckDuckGo leverages Apple tags to attack Google


DuckDuckGo grows on users and is currently being updated for iOS while comparing it to Google and Chrome.

In these times there seems to be an effort on a part of users to take paths in which their privacy is strengthened. An example we have seen is the transfer of users that have been lived between WhatsApp and Telegram, but some people move to other areas, such as search engines.

DuckDuckGo has been known for years as a search engine that primates privacy and is in continuous growth. It may not be the preferred choice for those who move away from Google, but one to consider. At this time, the well-known search engine is updating with App Store privacy tags that provide information to understand the data that apps collect, and something interesting has been published.

At DuckDuckGo they have decided that they can use them on their behalf despite having originally been against them and now inform users that Chrome and Google spying on them.


Through the Twitter account, DuckDuckGo has posted a comparison about the data they collect compared to Google and the same image already shows what most users probably knew.

DuckDuckGo does not collect user data, while Google gets and saves a large portion of it, such as location, browsing history, financial information, search history, and many more, as remembered in 9to5Mac.

This rush is in line with Apple's intentions to improve user privacy and how it has been campaigning for a long time. The company wants the user to decide the data they share with the apps, not let them be accessed by default, something that has particularly upset Google and Facebook.

In the end, it must be the same user who decides which apps and search engines they use, what they gain in results, privacy, and other aspects. And for that, it is positive to be able to access as much information as possible.
