Why should I use DuckDuckGo instead of Google?

#1 — Google tracks you. We don’t.
You share your most intimate secrets with your search engine without even thinking: medical, financial and personal issues, along with all the day to day things that make you, well, you. All of that personal information should be private, but on Google it’s not. On Google, your searches are tracked, mined, and packaged up into a data profile for advertisers to follow you around the Internet through those intrusive and annoying ever-present banner ads, using Google’s massive ad networks, embedded across millions of sites and apps.
So-called incognito mode won’t protect you either. That’s a myth. “Incognito” mode isn’t really incognito at all. It’s an extremely misleading name and in my opinion should be changed. All it does is delete your local browsing history after your session on your device, but does nothing from stopping any website you visit, including Google, from tracking you via your IP address and other tracking mechanisms like browser fingerprinting.
To keep your searches private and out of data profiles, the government, and other legal requests, you need to use DuckDuckGo. We don’t track you at all, regardless what browsing mode you are in.
Each time you search on DuckDuckGo, it’s as if you’ve never been there before. We simply don’t store anything that can tie your searches to you personally, or even tie them together into a search history that could later be tied back to you. For more details, check out our privacy policy.
#2 — Block Google trackers lurking everywhere.
Google tracks you on more than just their search engine. You may realize they also track you on YouTube, Gmail, Chrome, Android, Gmaps, and all the other services they run. For those, we recommend using private alternatives like DuckDuckGo for search. Yes, you can live Google-free. I’ve been doing it for many years.
What you may not realize, though, is Google trackers are actually lurking behind the scenes on 75% of the top million websites. To give you a sense of how large that is, Facebook is the next closest with 25%. It’s a good bet that any random site you land on the Internet will have a Google tracker hiding on it. Between the two of them, they are truly dominating online advertising, by some measures literally making up 74%+ of all its growth. A key component of how they have managed to do that is through all these hidden trackers.
Google Analytics is installed on most sites, tracking you behind the scenes, letting website owners know who is visiting their sites, but also feeding that information back to Google. Same for the ads themselves, with Google running three of the largest non-search ad networks installed on millions of sites and apps: Adsense, Admob, and DoubleClick.
At DuckDuckGo, we’ve expanded beyond our roots in search, to protect you no matter where you go on the Internet. Our DuckDuckGo browser extension and mobile app is available for all major browsers and devices, and blocks these Google trackers, along with the ones from Facebook and countless other data brokers. It does even more to protect you as well like providing smarter encryption.
#3 — Get unbiased results, outside the Filter Bubble.
When you search, you expect unbiased results, but that’s not what you get on Google. On Google, you get results tailored to what they think you’re likely to click on, based on the data profile they’ve built on you over time from all that tracking I described above.
That may appear at first blush to be a good thing, but when most people say they want personalization in a search context they actually want localization. They want local weather and restaurants, which can actually be provided without tracking, like we do at DuckDuckGo. That’s because approximate location info is automatically embedded by your computer in the search request, which we can use to serve you local results and immediately throw away without tracking you.
Beyond localization, personalized results are dangerous because to show you results they think you’ll click on, they must filter results they think you’ll skip. That’s why it’s called the Filter Bubble.
So if you have political leanings one way or another, you’re more likely to get results you already agree with, and less likely to ever see opposing viewpoints. In the aggregate this leads to increased echo chambers that are significantly contributing to our increasingly polarized society.
This Filter Bubble is especially pernicious in a search context because you have the expectation that you’re seeing what others are seeing, that you’re seeing the “results.” We’ve done studies over the years where we have people search for the same topics on Google at the same time and in “Incognito” mode, and found they are significantly tailored.
On DuckDuckGo, we are committed to not putting you in the Filter Bubble. We don’t even force people into a local country index unless they explicitly opt-in.
#4 — We listen.
Google is notoriously hard to get a hold of. Locked out of your Gmail account? Sorry, we can’t help you. The Knowledge Graph says you’re dead? That’s unfortunate. Unless you’re a journalist or influencer of some kind, good luck getting anyone at Google to listen.
Meanwhile at DuckDuckGo we read every piece of feedback we get. We respond on social media. In short, we listen. My DMs are open and I read all the email sent to me personally. Feel free to reach out.
#5 — We don’t try to trap you in our “ecosystem.”
It used to be that you search on Google and then you click off to the top result. Over time, Google bought more and more companies and launched more and more of their own competing services, favoring them over others in their search results. Google Places instead of Yelp, TripAdvisor, etc. Google Products instead of Amazon, Target, etc. They’re in travel, health, and soon jobs. Anywhere there is money to be made, you can expect them to get into it eventually.
Even when you do click off, Google AMP tries to still trap you you in Google. And these tactics are not just on the search engine.
On Android there is immovable Google search widget and you can’t even change its search engine if you want to. This behavior is a direct analogue to Microsoft putting IE on Windows in the 1990s, but worse since you can’t remove it, can’t replace it, and it takes up more of the smaller screen. The same is true for other Google services on Android as well, forcing carriers to bundle and promote them. We personally have similar issues with Chrome search engine integration.
At DuckDuckGo, we aren’t trying to take over the world. We don’t have an “ecosystem” to trap you in. We just want to help you get to where you want to go as fast as possible, and protect you as much as we can in that process.
#6 — We have !bangs.
To further this point, we have a built-in feature called bangs that enables you to search other sites directly, completely skipping DuckDuckGo if you like. Here’s how it works. Let’s say you know you want to go to the Wikipedia article for ducks. You can just search for “!w duck” and we will take you right there.
The ! tells DuckDuckGo you want to use a bang shortcut, and the w is an abbreviation for Wikipedia. You can use the full name, though we have a lot of shortcuts such as !a for Amazon, !r for Reddit, etc. There are literally thousands of sites that this feature works with, and so most sites you think of will probably work. It also works with our autocomplete so you can see what’s there easily.
If you routinely search a particular site, like Stack Overflow for coding answers or Baseball Reference for stats or All Recipes for something to make, you can just go right there.
If DuckDuckGo is your default search engine, you can just type this right into your browser's address bar, and skip loading our search engine altogether. We will just route you to the right place, without tracking you of course!
#7 — We strive for a world where you have control over your personal information.
Our vision is to raise the standard of trust online. If you share this vision, supporting DuckDuckGo helps us make progress towards it. For the past seven years, we’ve been donating a substantial portion of our profits to organizations that also work towards the Internet we want — an open Internet where you can take control of your personal information.
We believe that privacy policies shouldn’t be default “collect it all," but instead offer a clear and compelling case as to what benefits you get by giving up your personal information. If you share this view for the future of data privacy, you can vote with your feet.
#8 — Our search results aren’t loaded up with ads.
For many Google searches, the entire first page is ads. On mobile it can be even worse, multiple pages of ads. Not so on DuckDuckGo. We keep ads to a minimum, and naturally they're non-tracking ads, based only on search keywords and not on a personal profile or search history.
#9 — Search without fear.
When people know they are being watched, they change their behavior. It's a well-documented behavior called the chilling effect, and it happens on Google. For example, an MIT study showed that people started doing fewer health searches on Google after the Snowden revelations, fearing that their personal ailments might get out.
“Suppressing health information searches potentially harms the health of search engine users and… In general, our results suggest that there is a chilling effect on search behavior from government surveillance on the Internet.”
Your searches are your business, and you should feel free to search whatever you want, whenever you want. You can easily escape this chilling effect on DuckDuckGo where you are anonymous.
#10 — Google is simply too big, and too powerful.
Google is GIANT, the epitome of Silicon Valley big tech, with a market cap of around 750 Billion dollars (at the time of writing), 75,000 employees, dominating search, browsing, online advertising, and more, with tentacles in everything tech, online and offline. Last year they outspent every other company on lobbying Washington.
By comparison, DuckDuckGo is tiny. We’re currently a team of about 45 people, scattered across the globe; I’m in Pennsylvania. We have a very narrow focus: helping you take control of your personal information online.
The world could use more competition, less focus on ad tracking, fewer eggs in one basket.
Join the Duck Side!

SQL Injection Finding Vulnerable Websites...

Hello Greeks !
I hope you all enjoyed my previous article on Email spoofing, if not you'll can go to my profile and check it.
My this article totally different from previous one. In this article i'll be teaching how to find vulnerable websites for SQL injection.
SQL injection is a code injection technique, used to attack data-driven applications. The SQL Injection attack allows external users to read details from the database, so attackers can dump whole website database and find admin username/password details.
Note: Unfortunately we CANNOT SQLi attack on all websites. The websites need a SQLi vulnerability in order to do this technique.
Website URL need a parameter like php?id=4 / php?id=any number to inject.
For example: http://www.example.com/products.php?id=5www.example.com/products.php?id=5 <= This type of website is needed in order to do this trick
To Find these type of website, Use Google Dorks- dork will advance search on google
Some Pakistan google Dorks list:
gallery.php?id= site:.pk
products.php?id= "+92"
cat.php?id= "+92"
There is no limit in dork list, you can make your own google dork with keywords. Or you search on google for "New Google Dorks List" you will get many results.
Here you can find http://pastebin.com/Tdvi8vgK 7000 google dork lists
Note: These dorks will search out other countries websites Too, if you like to do this to Pakistan based websites ADD site:.pk at the end of the dork for example: about.php?cartID= site:.pk
Once you find a website, then you can check for SQLi vulnerability.
Put an ' (Apostrophe) at the end of the URL Parameter.
Let's, Check for SQLi Vulnerability, so i put an Apostrophe at the end of the URL Parameter.
http://www.piil.com.pk/new.php?id=25' (if you are using google chrome... Apostrophe will change to %27, it doesn't matter)
Now I found an error on this website!!!

How Use Google Product Anonymously

Removing Identifying Information from Your Google Account

1. Log in to your Google account. Click your profile photo or name in the upper right corner, and then click "Account" to visit your account settings.
2. Click the "Dashboard" tab on the left, and log in once more.
3. Click the "Edit Blogger Profile" link in the "Blogger" section, and remove any identifying information, including your name, location, biographical information and photo. Save your changes.
4. Click the "Edit Profile" links in the Google Plus, Picasa and Orkut sections, if you have these profiles, and delete all identifying information from them. Some forms don't allow you to just leave the fields blank, so you can enter initials where appropriate instead of your full name. Changing your Google Plus profile information automatically removes your identifying information from your YouTube account if you've connected the two. If not, click "Manage Your YouTube" account and change your identifying information there as well.

Removing and Hiding Your Browsing History

1. Visit the Google History page (link in Resources), and log in to your Google account again if prompted.
2. Click the gear icon at the top of the page, and then select "Settings."
3. Click the "Delete All" link in the text, and then click the "Delete All" button in the pop-up box that appears.
4. Click the "Turn Off" button to disable your Google account from recording your Web browsing history.

5. Log out of your Google account, and browse the Web while signed out of your account.


·        You can also use the Chrome browser's incognito feature so that your Web browser doesn't record your visits to any websites, regardless of whether you're signed in to a Google account at the time. Click the menu button with three horizontal lines in the main browser menu, and then select "New Incognito Window" from the drop-down menu to browse the Internet incognito.


·        Some features on some Google products may be limited without signing in to a Google or Google Plus account. For example, you can't upload, like or save to favorites any videos YouTube if you're not logged in to a Google account, and smart search won't work on Google if you're signed out.
·        Even if you delete your Web history from your Google account and opt out of tailored ads based on your Web browsing, due to federal law and regulations, the company still keeps data on your account saved. If you'd like to reduce how much information Google keeps on your Internet activities, use alternatives to Google products, such as a different search engine, mail client, video streaming service, maps, directions and other services (links in Resources).

·        Google Plus only allows you to change your name up to three times in two years.

Thank you for Reading !

IOT: Internet Of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

The "Internet of things" (IoT) is becoming an increasingly growing topic of conversation both in the workplace and outside of it. It's a concept that not only has the potential to impact how we live but also how we work. But what exactly is the "Internet of things" and what impact is it going to have on you, if any? There are a lot of complexities around the "Internet of things" but I want to stick to the basics. Lots of technical and policy-related conversations are being had but many people are still just trying to grasp the foundation of what the heck these conversations are about.
Let's start with understanding a few things.
Broadband Internet is become more widely available, the cost of connecting is decreasing, more devices are being created with Wi-Fi capabilities and sensors built into them, technology costs are going down, and smartphone penetration is sky-rocketing.  All of these things are creating a "perfect storm" for the IoT. 

So What Is The Internet Of Things?
Simply put, this is the concept of basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other). This includes everything from cellphones, coffee makers, washing machines, headphones, lamps, wearable devices and almost anything else you can think of.  This also applies to components of machines, for example a jet engine of an airplane or the drill of an oil rig. As I mentioned, if it has an on and off switch then chances are it can be a part of the IoT.  The analyst firm Gartner says that by 2020 there will be over 26 billion connected devices... That's a lot of connections (some even estimate this number to be much higher, over 100 billion).  The IoT is a giant network of connected "things" (which also includes people).  The relationship will be between people-people, people-things, and things-things.
How Does This Impact You?
The new rule for the future is going to be, "Anything that can be connected, will be connected." But why on earth would you want so many connected devices talking to each other? There are many examples for what this might look like or what the potential value might be. Say for example you are on your way to a meeting; your car could have access to your calendar and already know the best route to take. If the traffic is heavy your car might send a text to the other party notifying them that you will be late. What if your alarm clock wakes up you at 6 a.m. and then notifies your coffee maker to start brewing coffee for you? What if your office equipment knew when it was running low on supplies and automatically re-ordered more?  What if the wearable device you used in the workplace could tell you when and where you were most active and productive and shared that information with other devices that you used while working?
On a broader scale, the IoT can be applied to things like transportation networks: "smart cities" which can help us reduce waste and improve efficiency for things such as energy use; this helping us understand and improve how we work and live. Take a look at the visual below to see what something like that can look like.

The reality is that the IoT allows for virtually endless opportunities and connections to take place, many of which we can't even think of or fully understand the impact of today. It's not hard to see how and why the IoT is such a hot topic today; it certainly opens the door to a lot of oportunities but also to many challenges. Security is a big issue that is oftentimes brought up. 

With billions of devices being connected together, what can people do to make sure that their information stays secure? Will someone be able to hack into your toaster and thereby get access to your entire network? The IoT also opens up companies all over the world to more security threats. Then we have the issue of privacy and data sharing. This is a hot-button topic even today, so one can only imagine how the conversation and concerns will escalate when we are talking about many billions of devices being connected.

 Another issue that many companies specifically are going to be faced with is around the massive amounts of data that all of these devices are going to produce. Companies need to figure out a way to store, track, analyze and make sense of the vast amounts of data that will be generated.
So what now?
Conversations about the IoT are (and have been for several years) taking place all over the world as we seek to understand how this will impact our lives. We are also trying to understand what the many opportunities and challenges are going to be as more and more devices start to join the IoT. For now the best thing that we can do is educate ourselves about what the IoT is and the potential impacts that can be seen on how we work and live.
