Hi,

I installed duckduckgo.com to prevent spying from google and other sources. I've installed it on my google chrome and set it as my default home page, but every time I do a search query on duckduckgo, it would appear in my google chrome history. I do not want google or the NSA to know about my online whereabouts. Please help.

Unless you have Sync enabled, that history is completely local. It is stored on your computer, nowhere else. DuckDuckGo also has no control over that.
That said, if you are worried about trusting Google, you should not be using Chrome at all.

They simply are not informed enough.
