At the center of our Smarter Encryption technology is a large list of websites that we know have encrypted (HTTPS) versions of their websites. This list is much larger than alternatives because we automatically generate it through crawling the web.

In addition, @Pinterest is using DuckDuckGo Smarter Encryption to increase the encryption in their pin links by 33%, with 80% of pin links now encrypted and therefore secure (up from 60%). https://medium.com/@Pinterest_Engineering/privacy-power-up-upgrading-pin-links-from-http-to-https-9f3cd32a132c

When using an encrypted connection, snoopers can only see the domain you are doing to. Everything else — like your search terms, the exact page you visit, and anything you type in — will just look like gobbledegook to anyone snooping.

Smarter Encryption is a key component of our mobile app (DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser) and desktop browser extension (DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials) https://duckduckgo.com/app
It makes sure when you type a website URL or click on a link that you use the encrypted version if possible.
