Duckduckgo app tracking protection

I’m just curious on using the app tracking protection feature of duckduckgo, is it ok to always enable it ?

I wouldnt trust DDG at all after whole microsoft situation

DDG were white listing some MS cookies from their tracker blocking. As far as I know this is now fixed

This is a very brief summary and I recommend you look into it more yourself.

Hm. I can’t really make heads or tails of this. I can’t really tell if it’s a big deal or not.
The lying is a big deal to me, but I don’t understand exactly what Microsoft is being allowed to do.
DDG says they can’t block some Microsoft trackers before they load, but they can block them after…I don’t understand that. Does that mean the trackers are actually getting blocked anyway, just in a different manner?

I suggest use adguard dns. They provide both tracker and ads protection. You dont even need to download their app and configure it yourself.

It is still fixed. There was an issue, now there isn’t. Hence, the issue has been fixed.

From experience it’s fine to have it enabled, I think it just blocks some scripts, ads and other stuff. However, sometimes it might cause a site to break or not load properly, and in that case you’d want to disable it for that site.

Other things do very similar options; such as Windscribe, ProtonVPN and Mullvad
