Often the Chrome browser on our computer is managed by our company and the default search engine cannot be changed. If you are conscious about your privacy and prefer a search engine that does not track you – then look no further than DuckDuckGo.

Using Requestly, a Chrome extension that allows you to mangle requests as they happen, we can configure rules that will make sure that any search query to Google is actually handled by DuckDuckGo in a privacy-first manner.

For this we will use the Redirect Requests rule type in Requestly.

We setup a wildcard that will match any google search query and instead re-write it to DuckDuckGo!

Add the rule to Requestly: https://app.requestly.in/rules/#sharedList/1555149772100

Install the Requestly extension from the Chrome Web Store.

This and many more rules can be configured easily in Requestly to enhance your web browsing experience.
