DuckDuckGo is stepping up its privacy game.

The company that’s been championing online privacy with its search engine and browser, has just rolled out a Privacy Pro bundle

It’s a trio of a VPN, a personal data removal service, and around-the-clock identity theft restoration. It’s initially up for grabs in the US for $9.99 a month or $99.99 if you go for the full-year subscription.

Now, let’s dive a bit deeper into what this bundle offers.

First off, the VPN. DuckDuckGo didn’t just slap together any VPN. They built this one from the ground up, ensuring it doesn’t log any user data. It’s baked right into the DuckDuckGo browser, so no need to download a separate app.

You can connect up to five devices simultaneously, with servers scattered across the US, Europe, and Canada. Plus, they’re using the WireGuard protocol for all connections, which is top-notch for speed and security. They’re even planning to add more servers and country locations down the line.

The personal data removal feature is like having a digital guardian angel. It scours the internet for your info on various sites and, if it finds anything, it requests to have it removed on your behalf. It’ll even handle all the back-and-forth emails for you. To keep your digital footprint as small as possible, it regularly re-scans these sites to ensure your data doesn’t pop back up. You can check out what data has been removed anytime from your browser.

Rounding out the trio is the identity theft restoration service. Despite our best efforts, identity theft can still happen. If it does, this service has got your back. DuckDuckGo teamed up with Iris, a seasoned identity theft advising firm, to offer this. You can call them 24/7, and they’ll jump into action, helping with everything from freezing credit reports to fixing fraudulent claims and even covering some costs.

So, what do you think? In a world where our digital privacy is constantly under threat, it’s refreshing to see DuckDuckGo not just talking the talk but walking the walk with the Privacy Pro bundle. Whether you’re a privacy enthusiast or just looking to beef up your online security, this bundle seems like a solid choice. And who knows, with DuckDuckGo’s track record, this could be the beginning of a new era in online privacy.
