DuckDuckGo announced the beta release of Email Protection, a free email forwarding service that removes email trackers. The new service protects users’ email privacy without changing email services or apps. The users will be able to use their @duck.com email address and the emails sent to that address will be forwarded to users’ regular inboxes, without the email trackers.
