  • Startpage

    Why did we create Startpage.com?

    As kids, we’re all taught not to touch stuff that doesn’t belong to us. It’s a good guideline. So why are online companies harvesting our personal data without our consent? They shouldn’t. That’s why we’re developing online tools that help you stay in control of your personal information. Search is done. Expect other private versions of common digital services soon. Why?
    Because it’s our belief that personal data should be your data, not Big Data. Period.

    How we made search private

    You can’t beat Google when it comes to online search. So we’re paying them to use their brilliant search results in order to remove all trackers and logs. The result: The world’s best and most private search engine. Only now you can search without ads following you around, recommending products you’ve already bought. And no more data mining by companies with dubious intentions. We want you to dance like nobody’s watching and search like nobody’s watching.

    No personal data storage

    We don’t collect or share your personal information. Ever. There’s literally no data about you on our servers. None. We can’t profile you, and we can’t be forced to hand over your data to authorities, simply because we don’t have any data to hand over.

    Anonymous View

    Clicking search results means leaving the protection of Startpage.com. This could lead to a barrage of cookies being installed on your device. That’s why we developed the "Anonymous View" feature. With "Anonymous View" you can visit search results in full privacy, and keep on browsing: They’ll never know you were there. You’ll find the feature next to every search result.

    No filter bubble

    Other search engines use your search habits to serve you results they think you want, essentially trapping you in an echo chamber of results. With Startpage.com, you break through the filter bubble to see a wider variety of results.

    Features:

    • Search that doesn't follow you around
    • Independent and Unbiased Search Results

  • searx

    Free Linux Web Android Self-Hosted Cloudron Website

    Searx is a metasearch engine, aggregating the results of other search engines while not storing information about its users.

    Why use Searx?

    • Searx may not offer you as personalised results as Google, but it doesn't generate a profile about you
    • Searx doesn't care about what you search for, never shares anything with a third party, and it can't be used to compromise you
    • Searx is free software, the code is 100% open and you can help to make it better. See more on GitHub

    If you do care about privacy, want to be a conscious user, or otherwise believe in digital freedom, make Searx your default search engine or run it on your own server

    Technical details - How does it work?

    Searx is a metasearch engine, inspired by the seeks project.
    It provides basic privacy by mixing your queries with searches on other platforms without storing search data. Queries are made using a POST request on every browser (except chrome*). Therefore they show up in neither our logs, nor your URL history. In case of Chrome* users there is an exception, Searx uses the search bar to perform GET requests.
    Searx can be added to your browser's search bar; moreover, it can be set as the default search engine.
