When you search the web in Safari on your iPhone or iPad, the default search engine determines what site is used to look for results. Even if you’re in the Safari browser, you can still choose to use Google search instead of say, Bing or Yahoo. iOS also gives you the option to use DuckDuckGo for Safari, which doesn't track a user's search history, for greater privacy. Changing the default browser on an iPhone or iPad is easy. You can choose what you want your iPhone default search engine to be within Settings. Here’s how to change your default search engine in Safari on iPhone or iPad. Please note that if you set Google as your default browser in Safari it is different from browsing the web with Chrome.

People are simply more likely to make a purchase if they’re familiar with a product, so cookies essentially make you familiar in the hope that you’ll eventually decide to buy. But with iOS 11 on iPhone, you can ask Safari to prevent this cross-site tracking so that ads aren’t able to follow you around the internet.
