If you don’t know how to set DuckDuckGo as the default search engine, it is a really easy task. If you care about privacy, DuckDuckGo is a great alternative for Google.
Browsers like Chrome install and use Google Search by default. There are other search engines you can use like Microsoft’s Bing, Yahoo!, and others like DuckDuckGo. If you are bored and want to try this alternative out, we’ll show you the way.
How to set DuckDuckGo as the default search engine?
- First, we should open our browser. (Let’s say it is Google Chrome)
- Then we access the browser settings by clicking on the three horizontal points and Settings.
You will see the default search engine and the basic listing below
- Depending on the region you might not see this alternative engine.
- If this is the case, go to the DuckDuckGo website and install it as an extension.
Go back to the settings and make sure that DuckDuckGo is selected as the default search engine.
By following these same steps, you can set any browser like Bing or Yahoo! as the default search engine or return to Google at any time. Just like in Chrome, changing the default search engine in other browsers such as Firefox or Edge is quite simple. You can check their settings section in order to do this task.
