DuckDuckGo updates its plugin to block Google’s latest ad-tracking tech

Published

on


Recently, Google has started testing and refining its FLoC (Federated Learning of Cohorts) machine learning algorithm on the million Chrome users. The FLoC is Google’s new tracking method on Chrome.

It was designed to be a more privacy-centered way to track users and serve them ads. FLoC puts the Chrome users in a group based on their browsing history and then offers this group ID to websites to advertising against.

But some privacy protectors like Electronic Frontier Foundation have claimed that it could be harmful to consumers because any website can get that group FLoC ID to target and fingerprint you.

FLoC IDs could still be bad for consumers, containing potentially sensitive information as well as providing another data point that lets advertisers individually identify you.

In this equation, Google just started to test its replacement for third-party cookies. Meanwhile, now privacy master DuckDuckGo has announced that it has released an update to their browser plugin, which would block FLoC.

At the moment, Google will be to approve this latest updated Chrome extension, and the update should appear in the Chrome Web Store soon. The FLoC blocking feature is included in version 2021.4.8 and newer to the DuckDuckGo extension.

At last, DuckDuckGo maker announced that it is also opting their search website out of contributing to FLoC’s profiling.

As per the info, this American search engine will reportedly pay $15 billion in fiscal 2021 to Apple. This sum is higher than previously paid $11 billion in 2020 and $9.5 billion in 2018.

“We have noted in prior research that GOOG is likely paying to ensure Microsoft doesn’t outbid it.”

— As stated by Senior Analyst Toni Sacconaghi

However, nighter Google or Apple has confirmed this deal but figures show an estimated profit of up to 20% of Apple’s annual profits in 2020. As for the $15B investment, it’s derived from Apple’s recent revenue and Google’s TAC (traffic acquisition costs) disclosures.

On the note from Toni Sacconaghi, this big sum is a payment to keep Microsft away from reaching other platforms. The internet search engine is willing to pay any cost to maintain its dominance.

Furthermore, this report points out, Google eliminating the chance for the companies to negotiate with other search engines like Bing, Yahoo, DudckDuckGo, and Ecosia to be the default engine. Meanwhile, it also includes the regulatory risk that could result in a 4-5% collision on Apple’s net earnings.

Besides, if Google is continuing to stand on this policy, it could only end up paying an even higher payment to this iPhone owner. For FY22, this compensation amount to likely to reach $18-$20.
