Use DuckDuckGo Search in Chrome

Often the Chrome browser on our computer is managed by our company and the default search engine cannot be changed. If you are conscious about your privacy and prefer a search engine that does not track you – then look no further than DuckDuckGo. Using Requestly Chrome & Firefox extension, you can setup a simple rule such that any search query to Google is actually handled by DuckDuckGo in a privacy-first manner. For this we will use the Redirect Request rule type in Requestly.

We setup a wildcard that will match any google search query and instead re-write it to DuckDuckGo!

Here’s how you can get the rule directly

  1. Install Requestly from Chrome Store
  2. Open https://app.requestly.in/rules/#sharedList/1555149772100
  3. Click on Import List button
Voila! Your Chrome Address Bar will use DuckDuckGo for any search queries. Here’s a youtube video showing how you can render results using Google when Bing is your default search engine.
