Isn't Brave meant to be more private? If so why use Google as the default search engine?



One of the first things I noticed about Brave is that Google is the default search engine. Why doesn’t Brave use DuckDuckGo as the default? Please don’t misunderstand me, I know how to change my search engine (i.e. the one used by Brave on my system), but I want to know why Google is the default search engine when it’s like the least private search engine? Why not use a more privacy-oriented search engine like DuckDuckGo?

Thanks for your time,


Thanks for the feedback @fusion809, :slight_smile:
