DuckDuckGo appending Brave tag to searches

I wonder if anyone could give a bit more information on the Brave tag that is appended to searches on DuckDuckGo? Should this be a privacy concern, or is it a normal part of the functioning of the service?

Thanks! :grinning:

Hi @domdtyler,

I believe that’s expected. cc @sriram and @clifton for confirmation (I’m not found the original issue on GitHub)

That is expected as part of referral code. Here’s the issue for reference
