The EFF’s HTTPS Anywhere extension now uses Smarter Encryption from the DuckDuckGo dataset

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is adding data from DuckDuckgo’s Smarter Encryption into their HTTPS Anywhere browser extension, introducing our best-in-class privacy security technologies to millions of users. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has been fighting for digital freedom and privacy for over 30 years, and Smarter Encryption was motivated by their groundbreaking work.

If you have the HTTPS Anywhere extension enabled in your browser, you don’t need to do something and shouldn’t find any differences other than being able to experience even better security defense without having to do something. You may also take advantage of the technology by downloading the DuckDuckGo app/extension or actually using DuckDuckGo Search to conduct your web searches.
