Hi, jimjan1228.

 

DuckDuckGo is an internet search engine that emphasizes protecting searchers' privacy and avoiding the filter bubble of personalized search results. It is available for all major browsers and devices.

 

May I know the exact detection of Trend Micro whenever you're using the program?

 

Regarding the protection when you're using DuckDuckGo, Trend Micro maintains a database of risky websites that have a history of transmitting malicious software or supporting online fraud. Trend Micro Web Threats feature protects your device against threats on the Internet automatically.

 

You can read more about this feature on this link:

 

How to adjust Trend Micro Web Threats settings on Windows

 

Let us know if you need further assistance.

Hi @swlawler,

Welcome to Trend Micro Home Users Community!

To further check this, may we ask for a screenshot that contains the details of the detection made by Trend Micro?

Awaiting your response.
