It’s not just Brave: DuckDuckGo announced today that it too is blocking Google AMP in its mobile apps and browser extensions.
“AMP technology is bad for privacy because it enables Google to track users even more (which is already a ton),” a DuckDuckGo representative told me. “Google also uses AMP to further entrench its monopoly, forcing the technology on publishers by prioritizing AMP links in search and favoring Google ads on AMP pages.”
DuckDuckGo also tweeted out the news:
“Our apps and extensions now protect against Google AMP tracking. When you load or share a Google AMP page anywhere from DuckDuckGo apps (iOS/Android/Mac) or extensions (Firefox/Chrome), the original publisher’s webpage will be used in place of the Google AMP version.”
