If the point of DuckDuckGo is to remain more private while searching the web, it doesn’t make sense to have your search terms visible to anyone with access to your computer (or your network).

  1. The claim "or your network" is absolutely false as DDG uses HTTPS.

  2. It's not even a problem, just don't record your history, or delete all* urls from your history.

  3. Never use DuckDuckGo nor this "SearchEncrypt" instead use Tor if you want privacy by design with whatever search engine or website you want.

Yea— as long as you don't put the query in the URL, DDG's totally private.
By default, it uses POST for the queries
