“We are proud to say that at the end of last year, we surpassed a cumulative count of 10 billion anonymous searches served, with over 4 billion in 2016! We are growing faster than ever with our first 14M day on Jan 10, 2017,” stated Gabriel Weinberg, CEO & Founder, DuckDuckGo.
The official slogan of DuckDuckGo is “The search engine that doesn’t track you.”
DuckDuckGo is not merely content with raising privacy standards for itself; it is dedicated to improving the privacy of users in general. This is highlighted by the fact DuckDuckGo recently donated $225,000 to 9 organizations who are privacy-focussed. The company is always looking to aid companies who have privacy as a central tenant of their policy. DuckDuckGo has the vision of wanting to be the most trusted search engine in the world which may explain the companies obsession with transparency and privacy.
“We are grateful to be able to make such donations yearly to serve our vision more broadly, and are working on considering donations for the New Year right now,” explained the company in an official statement.
