Going public means that DuckDuckGo would go from being a privately owned company to a publicly owned company with shareholders who all own a part of the company by way of stocks (and those who own more shares have more power over the company).
Think of Wall Street and the Stock Market.
Going public can help a lot of companies increase their capital (basically how much money they're making and how much you're worth) but then you're often under the complete control of your shareholders and your priorities become whatever makes their own shares more valuable which in turn makes them more money.
