More people will focus on privacy

Well, it probably really expected very few. The DuckDuckGo browser is not perfect when it comes to returning search results, but it enjoys tremendous popularity among users who value the security and privacy of their data. Few, however, probably thought that this essentially small project would soon be able to outdo its popularity with the search engine from the great Microsoft on Android – and this is what will happen.

In the face of requirements imposed by the European Union Google must give you the choice Android smartphone users are the default search provider. The Mountain View giant decided to choose 3 alternative suppliers on the basis of a quite controversial auction. Every four months, companies are to submit their classified offers for each of the EU markets separately. The three highest payers will be shown on the list of proposed search engines. In addition, the entity selected by Google will also pay the amount proposed by the fourth offender on the list.

The first auction is behind us and it turns out that in all European Union countries except the United Kingdom, DuckDuckGo was chosen as the default supplier. Bing from Microsoft will only appear in the United Kingdom, where advertising revenues can theoretically be the largest due to the high ratio of profits generated so far. DuckDuckGo had to invest colossal money in auctions – the question is whether he will be able to do the same in subsequent auctions.

We already know that Poles will be able to bet on Google, DuckDuckGo, Info.com or … Russian-Holdand Yandex. And what is the situation in other countries?
