How to Turn on Dark Mode on

Dark modes are getting popular across our favourite websites and applications, and for good reason. Dark mode is easier on the eye, and can often result in lighter battery usage.

If you use the privacy-conscious search engine,, you will be glad to hear it too has dark mode options.

There is also of course the DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser which also has a dark mode. If you are looking to enable dark mode on the browser as opposed to the search engine, check out that guide here.

Go To Settings

When first navigating to, you will notice a small hamburger menu in the top right. Select this.

From here, a sub menu will appear. Select “Themes”.

Once in the themes section, you will have the choice of not only Dark Mode but several others as well. Select the theme you like and be sure to press “Save and Exit”.

Changing to dark mode on DuckDuckGo is easy! The choice of other themes is also very welcomed.

If you are not already a DuckDuckGo user, be sure to check out our comparison of the major privacy-focused search engines, we think you will be pleasantly surprised at how good it stacks up against Google.
