Why was DuckDuckGo Lite removed from the Android app?

In a previous version of Brave for Android, I had selected DuckDuckGo Lite as my default search engine because it saves my data. However, the option was recently removed (https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/11089). Does anyone know why?

I would like to see it back in the list, because I cannot seem to add it using the “recently visited” feature (likely because the URL is so similar to that of standard DDG).

I see this same behavior on my end – not sure why it’s not getting added to the list. Let me reach out to a few devs and see if this is a known issue or not.
