You people are liars. When I searched something up is said, "Region." It was turned off, but how did it know that I'm from Canada? You people track us. Your liars.

Thank you all for the many comments, questions and suggestions. Particular thanks go to user x.15a2 for constantly monitoring, replying and helping so many users here. To continue these discussions, please head over to the DuckDuckGo subreddit.

DDG, like any other web site, can gather (but not record) your region based on your IP address. This information is sent from your browser and involves absolutely no tracking. No lie.

Dear user, free accusations won't help you understand how things actually work.

Would you care to elaborate?

I highly doubt that Duckduckgo tracks any users.

Instead of calling names you should go to your browser settings and make sure that your browser
is properly set to block tracking. When you click a search result link in DDG, the site you open can track you if your browser is not properly set up to prevent it. DDG has no control over your browser settings. DDG does not track or record your search activity. Go to click on "Browser Mirror" and look up all the information that your BROWSER will reveal to every web site you visit...if you let it. Also, every site you visit can deduce your general location based on your ip number.

I agree, further more, I think it is more important to understand what are other companies like google are doing with the info they; track, store, see, what ever... I recommend you to reed this:

Your IP adress can be seen of all sites. Use "Hide my IP" then your browser sent a IP adress from a other country!
But it is only for three days free.
