    DuckDuckGo Android App (by duckduckgo)

    DuckDuckGo refused every independent audits

    DuckDuckGo android app leaks your identity and websites you visit to them [1], issue they closed with a surprising reply

    Issue happened again years later [2]

    DuckDuckGo got caught with their shady terms with Microsoft (bing tracker drama)

    They estimate 70M-100M users [3], you don't make 100M a year with that amount of users, either Microsoft overpaid them for the tracker, or they are hiding something

    It's impossible to find their detailed earning reports, so nobody can confirm their claims, and yet it's being promoted as a privacy focused search by the media all around the world, why? despite these major flaws? i don't know

    So who knows what they do else?
