DuckDuckGo's new email privacy service forwards tracker-free messages

July 20, 2021

DuckDuckGo is putting out an email privacy feature that removes trackers from incoming messages, allowing for improved profiling and ad targeting.

Users of the service are given a free “@duck.com” email account, which cleans messages of trackers and sends them to their regular inbox. Trackers can notify email senders when you read their messages and assist advertising businesses in creating a profile for you based on acquired metadata.
