DuckDuckGo’s Android anti-tracking protection does what Google won’t

DuckDuckGo’s anti-tracking system works by setting up a firewall that blocks all traffic to sources that it identifies as trackers. While Android classifies this as a virtual private network, or VPN, DuckDuckGo notes that it’s not routing app data through remote servers. Instead, all the blocking happens locally on the device itself, so there’s no trade-off in connection speed or concern about your data being compromised.
