The homepage of had a large search box at the top of the page with the DuckDuckGo to the left. Beneath the search box but still above the fold were two buttons: one to set DuckDuckGo as the default search engine and another for downloading the DuckDuckGo browser. Below the fold was a lot of extra information. The first section was to download the DuckDuckGo desktop and mobile browser and the desktop browser extension from various app stores. When I scrolled further, it showed comparisons of DuckDuckGo with other search engines. Further down the page is information that explains the DuckDuckGo browser’s features. 4/17/2024

Here, I analyzed for malware and malicious content to check if it was legit or a scam:

I checked on Sucuri, and it returned as a low security risk. Results: Sucuri scan for Sucuri results

Sucuri says is a low security risk; however, it returned a 410 Gone status on the URL

I then ran a parasite scan with Unmask Parasites on, and it is clean. Results: Unmask Parasites scan for

I also checked on VirusTotal, and it is clean. Results: VirusTotal scan for VirusTotal results

URLVoid says passed all blocklist engines. Results: URLVoid scan for

In conclusion, Sucuri says is a low security risk; however, it returned a 410 Gone status on the URL Unmask Parasites says is clean of parasites. VirusTotal and Sucuri say isn’t malicious or blacklisted. OVERALL GRADE: Safe.
