DuckDuckGo will now allow you to anonymously use ChatGPT, Claude and Meta AI for free. Here's how it works

Privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo will now allow its users to anonymously access popular AI chatbots such as OpenAI's ChatGPT (based on GPT-3.5), Anthropic's Claude 3 Haiku, Mixtra 8x7B and Meta Llama 3 for free. The new feature aims to help people harness the power of generative AI, while also addressing privacy concerns that users may have when using these chatbots.

The new feature, called AI Chat, is free to use with a daily limit and can be turned off if needed. DuckDuckGo says it also plans to introduce a paid tier with a higher daily usage limit and more AI models.

Explaining the reason behind adding the new AI feature to DuckDuckGo, the company said, “We believe people should be able to use the Internet and other digital tools without feeling like they need to sacrifice their privacy in the process. So, we meet people where they are, developing products that add a layer of privacy to the everyday things they do online. That’s been our approach across the board – first with search, then browsing, email, and now with generative AI via AI Chat."

How to use DuckDuckGo's AI chat? 

Users can experience the new AI chat feature anonymously by navigating to or Once on the AI search page, users can select the generative AI model of their choice and start using it just like any other chatbot.

The key difference here is that these chats are completely anonymous and cannot be traced back to the individual user. Instead, if tracked, it would look like the chat requests were coming from DuckDuckGo, not the user. Users can also tap the fire button to delete the last chat, similar to a traditional DuckDuckGo search.

DuckDuckGo says it does not store or retain any chats and has signed agreements with the AI companies to delete any chats recorded within the next 30 days. Furthermore, the AI chats will not be used by these companies to train or improve their AI models.
