Very good news.
I use DDG as my main search engine on all my devices since months and I am trying to avoid Google as much as possible but if I have to use it, then I simply use !g :)
Qwant is also a very good privacy-focused search engine. In fact, I prefer Qwant over DDG in terms of searches. I use Qwant in Chromium-based browsers and DDG in FF browser

I prefer StartPage, as Qwant unexpectedly deleted Russia as a region, and sometimes I need to look for information there. DDG is pretty good, but I don't always like its relevance.
Yup, so far tested with my VPNs the following countries are not available to Qwant. It throws up the below message

1) Russia
2) Taiwan
3) Japan

Privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo grew by 62% in 2020​


The privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo continues to grow rapidly as the company reached 102M daily search queries for the first time in January.


DuckDuckGo is a search engine that builds its search index using its DuckDuckBot crawler, indexing WikiPedia, and through partners like Bing. The search engine does not use any data from Google.


What makes DuckDuckGo stand out is that they do not track your searches to build a user profile or share any personal or identifying data with third-party companies, including ad networks.


"Each time you search on DuckDuckGo, you have a blank search history, as if you’ve never been there before," DuckDuckGo explains in their privacy blog.
