DuckDuckGo targets Google for privacy labels, collection of user data

To the point:

  • DuckDuckGo targets Google for privacy labels.
  • According to DuckDuckGo, Google Chrome Web Browser collects a tremendous amount of user data.

DuckDuckGo, a rival of Google, said that the Chrome Web browser and Google search engine, in particular, gather a tremendous amount of user data, as revealed by privacy labels.

However, Google uses this data to show relevant ads to its users on Youtube and Blogs (monetized by Adsense.) Users have the option to disable the ads targeting.

Google is the most popular search engine, and its app suite, which includes Google Chrome Browser, Gmail, and Google Search, has one of the largest user databases. User privacy and security is a major concern these days, and The technology giants had not pushed any updates to its iPhone applications, putting users’ privacy at risk.

Google has now addressed the problem and begun pushing updates on the App Store. These apps’ privacy labels show the information that these services collect from their users.
