DuckDuckGo reinstated in India after being unreachable since July 1st

Privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo has been restored in India after being unreachable for many users there since July 1st, Android Police reported. Reports about what was causing the outage have varied. Some users reported the Indian government appeared to be behind the block, and others said they were getting what appeared to be DNS lookup errors, according to Android Police.

DuckDuckGo tweeted that the service appeared to be restored in India as of Saturday morning.

We’re seeing our services being broadly restored in India. Thank you for all of your reports, bringing attention to this issue.
