Making DuckDuckGo your searchengine of choice (per default)?

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

I have essentially just done that on my two android phones and 1 tablet.

Download App (not counting the number to get it as this is the same for all apps), install, click DDG search bar and its done.
