Tracking Protection for Android is similar in logic to the anti-tracking protection in iOS 15 Tracking Protection, but with some limitations. The DuckDuckGo feature will work like a firewall and filter communication between any application installed on the smartphone and the network.
All tracking attempts from advertising trackers and markers that track the user and exchange information about the user’s activity will be filtered out. It is also possible to view the entire list of trackers that are trying to establish surveillance over the user in real time.
The Tracking Protection function, starting from iOS 15, works on a similar principle, but blocks all application activities, while the function in the DuckDuckGo browser has limitations – only trackers known to the service developers will be blocked. Moreover, the list of such applications will be constantly updated.
As noted, the feature is currently in beta testing.
