DuckDuckGosearch results

Hello, I am the victim of defamatory abuse from a site - pornwikileaks. This has been over my head for ten years, and hurts my family as well. After being subject to stalking, domestic violence, hate crime and discrimination, I have obtained a Public Official/Safe At Home demand form from Secretary of State. The are a quite a few links that reference me on this search engine that harm my chances, just to get a job or maintain some dignity.

    DuckDuckGoprivacy

    I was interested whether an organization or business could track my search on DuckDuckGo. I did a search only on DuckDuckGo for guitar lessons and when I go to MSN news, there's an ad for guitar lessons. How did MSN know that I was looking for guitar lessons on DuckDuckGo?! The company states that my privacy is paramount and yet, apparently, other corporations have access to my searches. Why?

      DuckDuckGovideo service

      why has duckduckgo yet to come to the understanding that "duckducktube" is so badly needed.

      with current censorship happening with youtube, duckducktube would give users an uncensored platform

      this is an incredible chance to expand duckduckgo and save freedom and free speach

      imagine the profits and imagine freedom of expression and ideas :)

      you already have a great platform to launch your new site

      please help us fight for freedom

        DuckDuckGoprivacy matter

        Do I need to turn off or in some way disable Google while using duckduckgo search eng? It seems that some of my searches are getting into Google system as I've been seeing ads by Google about the items or services I've researched. Either that or your service is lieng and the info is coming from duckduckgo. I need and still use Google to get in touch with certain people and web sites as in some cases Google does what I wish to do and duckduckgo is not as effective. Also if Reddit is as involved with this service as I believe it to be I may be quitting duckduckgo and having my friends that have begun using it to guit as well. Redditt is a very shifty and untrustworthy company and doing anything involving them ends up being sold to highest bidder. Sorry but I'm not for sale.
        If you could answer my query about Google I would be grafeful. Thanx

            There are many ways Google could have gotten that information. Off the top of my head: 1. You're using Chrome, 2. Google Analytics (tracking scripts on the sites you visit), 3. Using an Android phone, 4. using Gmail (they build an advertising profile on you based on emails you receive). There's nothing DuckDuckGo can do to prevent any of those. Not sure why you think Reddit has anything to do with DuckDuckGo.

          DuckDuckGoduckduckgo internet survey

          I took your survey for the free product. Noted the flashlight that I wanted. Entered all my cr. card info, and it flashed "Error" and said that my cr. card was rejected. I reentered and used a different cr. card and got the same notice. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH MY CREDIT CARDS. THEY ARE ALL PAID IN FULL! YOUR SURVEY PRIZE WAS BS, AND I'M CONSIDERING NOT EVER USING DUCKDUCKGO AGAIN!!!

              DuckDuckGoyour no tracking policy

              DuckDuckGo no tracking high privacy policy may be highly useful for darknet people or to do a large number of scams that are possible. The internet server your are providing could be a hub of darknet and malware thus ensuring easy transactions and say every thing bad you can say about. So as you say even you or anyone in the world can access it, it is easy for dark people to do their dirty work, except if some hackers can do something, so I ask how is this going to help the world other than a bit "privacy" feeling

                DuckDuckGoprivacy essentials won't run on firefox

                Firefox has disabled Privacy Essentials as of today They say: Starting in Firefox version 57, only extensions built using WebExtensions APIs will work. Not sure if your add-ons are affected? See Firefox add-on technology is modernizing and these Frequently Asked Questions for details. They think this when your program is actually doing the opposite. Now I have to suffer slowdowns and ads again! Add-ons that can change your browser's settings without your consent or steal your information have become increasingly common. Some add-ons can add unwanted toolbars or buttons, change your search settings or inject ads into your computer. Firefox does now verify that the add-ons you install have been signed by Mozilla, digitally. This article explains the add-on signing feature and how it works.

                I am angry and so are a lot of Firefox users as they disabled this as of today. Would you please try to work this out with them so we can use it again? Thanks!!!

                    Yes, Firefox has disabled DDGPE add-on. This is a pain for me as well. Can you give an ETA on a new version that will be allowed by Firefox? This add-on was great for everything I needed. Also can you add a free VPN option to the new version. If it had a VPN option, I am unaware of it. Thanks.

                    @Goodshot Agreed! Ticked Me off to no end as well, .. I love that DDGPE was allowing Me to do. I suspect, .. Firefox [now no longer about the People as much as big money interests, . and thereby COMPROMISED], . Edge, [Microsoft, . We already know! their connections to certain Globalist agendas]... because it doesn't allow it to work, . even though it allows it to install, . and WILL NOT allow DuckDuckGo to be Default Search Engine. [[censored]], ...

                    I therefore likewise suspect, ... much if not ALL of the complaints I just red above, . "stealing money from My account", ... "Fake Charges"... "can't get rid of it, beware"... are ALL FF Operations to discredit with intent to destroy, .. a Search Engine and Privacy tools, .. that REALLY ARE operating "For the People", . and INDIVIDUAL PRIVACY!, .. and NOT! the Globalist Pigs, Fat Stacks.

                    DDG!, ... YOU NEED TO DESIGN YOUR OWN BROWSER SO THEY CAN NO LONGER DISABLE YOU, .. And so Individual Privacy, . ONCE AGAIN!, .. belongs to the Individual!

                        I have had exactly the same issue. I found a contact email address and tried to send to it and get an error saying that email address was not recognized. In the past three days when ever I click on a link, such as Amazon.com and other sites such as googlemaps or google,   I get a page that appears that says; "Did You mean...?" Then has a button to ignore or go to google.com. I guess I will go back to google.

                      DuckDuckGoadd-ons

                      Their DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials Add-on in Firefox does not work correctly. The issues are:

                      1. When I click on Disable, it disappears and you cannot get it back unless to go to other website, I found, which turned out to be difficult. The Disable button works like the Remove button.
                      2. There appears to be no way to turn off DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials for individual websites, which is very poor!
                      3. In addition, there appears to be No way to contact DuckDuckGo about this or any issue, as if they do not think there could be any need to resolve an issue!

                          I use Duck all the time except. Your maps absolutely suck. Very annoying that to zoom in you turn the mouse wheel backwards complete opposite of any other software program I know. Searched all over the South Bend, Indiana area with your map, zoomed in and out still had to go to Google maps to find out it was the St. Joseph River! Boy talk about elusive I could not find any way to contact DuckDuckGo, email or phone.

                            DuckDuckGochange of color for visited websites on duck duck go search

                            Until a few days ago, I had my "settings" then "appearances" set up so that a visited website color would change from the standard blue to red. This was extremely helpful. It needed to be reset from time to time, but that was not an issue for me.
                            Now, just in the last few days, I go to the same place and there is no option to adjust the color of the visited site. What's going on?? What am I doing wrong. Most eager to get this fixed. Plz respond. And thank you.

                              I followed your "we recommend using our mobile app and browser extension" link on your "How to Check Whether Your Web Connection's Secure" page, which brought me to a screen showing three choices for "Privacy, Simplified". I selected "Add to Firefox". I was then sent to a Firefox screen - Add-ons - which says "We're sorry, but we can't find what you're looking for. The page or file you requested wasn't found on our site."

                              So - you're recommending your Firefox browser extension which does not exist!

                                This is less a complaint, but a plea for assistance.

                                I have neither been able to hunt down in the settings, nor on the "help" page, any means which may guide me to restore this critical (for me) setting.

                                I am requesting assistance as soon as possible, kindly.

                                Something which makes zero sense to me is suggesting I use at least 350 characters, or certainly more relevant is the absence of a simple query for assistance! It's a sizable misstep in my opinion.

                                  Dear duckduckgo team,

                                  One of the main reasons that people change from google to duckduckgo is that google "compensates for the social bias" on the internet, thus actually biasing the search engine more than it would be if they didn´t do that. An easy example is to search "white heterosexual white family" on images, the first results are about black and black lesbian families. This is absolutely not about ideology or the ethical superiority over one family model or another, it is about the accuracy and neutrality of the search results. Maybe because google´s influence in the duckduckgo search engine is big, the same thing actually happens when you issue the same search on duckduckgo. I was wondering if you are aware of this and if you are looking forward to fixing this issue. Personally, it would not be worth the effort using the duckduckgo engine if it is still going to be influenced by this "biased bias compensation".

                                  Thanks,

                                  [protected]@gmail.com

                                      Just on the principle of wanting to stop supporting mega corrupt power money making corporations from controling everthing, I choose duckduckgo...local independent kind of thing, smaller scale, humanistic...then there is the horrid way the other's just invade our lives so much so many are brainwashed, use the corporate name to describe a generic action...thank you for offering an alternative to the perverted corporate take overs and allowing a simple small system that works fine enough.

                                    DuckDuckGoneed to approve cookie for online banking with chase

                                    Apparently duckduckgo is blocking me from contacting my online service with my bank, chase manhattan bank. I cannot interact with my credit card account so I can make payments. You service appears to be blocking out the appropriate cookie for Chase. Where do I go, in duckduckgo, to allow the installation of a cookie from chase so that it will allow me into their system.

                                        approve my bank cookie so I can communicate with my bank?

                                      DuckDuckGometa code

                                      This is a query more than a complaint.
                                      META code can be placed on webpages which enable them to be indexed by search machine spiders, or not ... such as
                                      META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW"

                                      I do NOT want Google to index my pages but I would like Duckduckgo to do so. Is there a META code that I can use to this end and if so would you send it to me. Many thanks
