DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials (this Chrome extension) does much more than just private search! 
 • We'll block hidden trackers we detect on the sites you visit.
 • We'll also take you to encrypted versions of sites when possible.
 • These private browsing features require extra permissions, though work solely on your local device. We do not collect or share any personal browsing information ourselves, as per our privacy policy:

Privacy, simplified.

Tired of being tracked online? We can help. At DuckDuckGo, we believe online privacy should be simple.

DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials comes packed with best-in-class privacy essentials and makes browsing in Chrome even faster.

• Escape Online Tracking — automatically block hidden third-party trackers we can find lurking on websites you visit, which stops the companies behind those trackers from collecting and selling your data. 
• Search Privately — our private search engine comes built-in so you can search the Internet without being tracked.
• Enforce Encryption — force sites to use an encrypted (HTTPS) connection where available, protecting your data from prying eyes, like from unwanted snoopers and Internet service providers.
• Decode Privacy — each site you visit gets a Privacy Grade (A-F) so you can see how protected you are at a glance, and you can even dig into the details to see who we caught trying to track you. 

Privacy, simplified.
