If you care about your online privacy, then you should really take all the precaution measures currently available to prevent third-parties from collecting your personal information.

The Vivaldi browser is one of the best choices when it comes to safe browsing and it recently integrated DuckDuckGo as its default search engine.

In other words, when you launch a Private Mode window, DuckDuckGo will be your default search engine. In this manner, there will be no browsing history information stored on your PC and the websites you visited won’t be able to track and monitor your behavior.

Private Mode doesn’t not block tracking

Many Internet users believe that opening a private window is enough to browse anonymously. Unfortunately, private windows can’t block tracking, so you need an additional tool to actually make private browsing private.

Vivaldi changed that by integrating DuckDuckGo into their Private Mode feature.

Now in Vivaldi, the moment you start using private browsing mode, your search is private as you’d expect — no need to change anything. Your searches and personal information will not be collected or shared while using Private Windows, in addition to the privacy protection features that Vivaldi gives you by default.

To use this feature, you need to download the latest Vivaldi version on your computer.

Speaking of protecting your privacy while online, we’ve got additional tips and suggestions on how to keep your private data private. For example, apart from using Vivaldi and DuckDuckGo, you can also install a reliable VPN software such as CyberGhost.


In case you want to be secure while surfing the internet, you will need to get a full-dedicated tool to secure your network.  Install now Cyberghost VPN and secure yourself. It protects your PC from attacks while browsing, masks your IP address and blocks all unwanted access.
