What does “App Tracking Protection” in DuckDuckGo mean?

DuckDuckGo Browser has developed a new tool aimed at preventing websites from tracking Android users. This tool is a watered down version of Apple’s App Tracking Transparency feature, which gives users the option to opt out of in-app data tracking.

However, DuckDuckGo isn’t released as part of the update for all Android phones, nor is it available as a separate download – it’s included in the privacy-focused DuckDuckGo browser app, but it works over the phone.

Once you enable App Tracking Protection, it will run in the background while you use your phone. The tool recognizes when the app is about to send data to a third-party tracker, and then prevents the app from taking your information.

And DuckDuckGo says it’s “constantly working to identify and protect against new trackers,” which means your data should be kept clear of any new trackers that appear, and from the DuckDuckGo app, you should also be able to see a real-time view of the trackers that the tool has blocked, In addition to where your data would have gone.
