Bringing privacy and transparency to your desktop.

DuckDuckGo's Privacy Essentials browser plugin brings all of the benefits of their Privacy Browser to your Chrome, Firefox, and Safari desktop browsers. Users are protected from malicious web trackers as they browse with an upgraded HTTPS connection, and each website gets a privacy rating that allows users to see at a glance how hostile different websites are to their privacy. A global leaderboard of top privacy offenders is also available to educate users of the trackers attempting to follow them around the web. TOSDR's privacy policy ratings are also integrated to give additional insight into how a user's privacy may be at risk.

DuckDuckGo's Privacy Essentials are a great way to add extra privacy protection to your existing browser. Try it today.
