Simple! If you use Safari, simple Click Safari > Preferences...

Then, click Search. The first option will ask "Search engine:" and so you can just add DDG as your default search engine. If you don't use Safari, well, then you shoulda told us! :P

Lemme know if you still need help!

Best regards,

You'll need Safari 7.1 or later for DuckDuckGo to appear as a Safari search engine option. If you're using an earlier version of Safari, try our extension instead.
