This move means that after Apple offers similar functionality, privacy-conscious Android users can join the waiting list to protect their data.

It happens in the face of growing scrutiny of how giant tech companies process data and who collects it.

In a press release, DuckDuckGo said: “These hidden app trackers are very creepy because they can track everything you do in your app and keep track of it even when you’re not using it.

“App tracking protection for Android is free and blocks trackers identified by other apps from third-party companies.”

The tracking issue was highlighted in Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal, revealing how businesses collect valuable information when users search the Internet.

Technology companies edit information to build comprehensive user profiles and enable users to target specific clickable, more profitable ads.

Apple and Google are currently in a fierce war over online dominance, and privacy issues can be a key factor in choosing a browser for users.

Apple states that privacy is a top priority for all products, including Safari.

Internet startup Brave also said privacy is a core factor, and Mozilla and Microsoft are also emphasizing privacy as a way to differentiate themselves from Google Chrome.

Google relies on advertising revenue, but its engineers are building a privacy sandbox, reportsCNET.

Users can increase their privacy settings by disabling many features such as browser location tracking, turning off search engine autocomplete, and canceling password autofill.

It is also helpful to delete your browser history on a regular basis.
