DuckDuckGo can stop Android apps from tracking you

The privacy-themed search engine is taking aim at user safety on mobile platforms

DuckDuckGo is a familiar and popular search engine for people who think their searches are their own business, and no one else's. But your search history is only one small part of the online profile that advertisers create for you, whether you know it or not. DuckDuckGo already offers a mobile Privacy Browser, a Chromium-based alternative to the stock browser that doesn't do any of the usual snooping. But DuckDuckGo recently went even further, announcing that it's going to rein in the tracking behavior of every other app on your phone, too.
