DuckoDuckGo has publicized the beta release of an anti-tracking functionality that will be integrated into its existing Android Applications to prevent Spy and trackers from getting access to your personal information when you are taking advantage of it several applications on your smartphone.
Various trackers from Meta and likes of Google tend always stay hidden on any App. In that manner, they track your behavior while online and even when offline. Luckily for iOS users, they have every reason to have their lips wide open. Apple has attempted to address the issue by offering a setting that prevents apps from tracking user activities. However, for Android, the problem seems not to be addressed, and that’s what DuckDuckGo is trying to fix right away.
The component is dubbed as App Tracking Protection for Android, and it can be turned on in the DuckDuckGo Android app. When you use your smartphone, it will be engaged in the background and will automatically reject requests from trackers from third-party firms, meaning those who did not design the app in use.
The component manages to bypass a lot of free applications that allow several third-party trackers, with the majority being from known organizations such as Facebook, currently Meta, and Google. The App Tracking Protection from DuckDuck Go will provide a real-time view of the trackers that have been blocked by the feature and a summary of its activities that will be given out in the form of notice from time to time. At the moment, this feature can only be accessible from Beta sign-up. To be eligible for the test, you must first download or update the DuckDuckGo Android app, then go to:

After that, you will have to exercise some patience as Every week, new persons will be chosen, and luckily if you are the One, you will be notified that you now have access to enjoy this particular feature.
