When using DuckDuckGo, in line with our strict privacy policy we can serve roughly localized results (weather, restaurants, maps, etc.).

Additionally, if you're in the US, since last year you can manually select a location, or enable the browser-location for more accurate and relevant search results.

Once set, the location is stored on your device and only sent to us when necessary, which you can change at any time. After we use it to give you better results, we immediately throw it away. At DuckDuckGo we don’t limit the experience, but allow you to be in control. 🎉

Our mission is to set a new standard of trust online, and by improving your online experience while at the same time keeping it completely anonymous, we're demonstrating that you don't need to sacrifice convenience for online privacy.
