As of today I’m getting no responses anymore when I do a simple web search on my iPhone.

I will list my specs but first wanted to justify in posting here because of my “obsolete” devices I have at my disposal and because I just feel at home at this section of the forum and know you guys are using Apple's obsolete devices too.

It’s an iPhone 7 with iOS 15.8.2

I tried with Safari and Firefox.
I was always using DuckDuckGo but even changing to the alternative Ecosia brings only an error message up whenever I try to do a web search.

Now the “funny part”, when I change to Google as the search motor it’s working.

I tried with mobile data connection and WiFi and it’s behaving the same.
I also switched off the phone and closed everything open (apps and browser tabs).

Anyone is having issues also?

What search motor are you using as an alternative to Google?
