DuckDuckGo Launches App Tracking Protection Feature For Android

The public beta testing of DuckDuckGo’s App Tracking Protection, which launched in a limited beta almost a year ago, is now open to all Android devices.

The privacy-focused startup’s free App Tracking Protection for Android feature bans third-party trackers from being utilized within apps even when the apps aren’t actively being used. When activated in DuckDuckGo’s browser, it detects when programs are prepared to send data to a list of third-party tracking companies on DuckDuckGo’s publicly accessible blocklist and obstructs the majority of those requests. Nothing happens on the device, and no information is transferred to DuckDuckGo’s servers.
