  • Searx

    Free Linux Web Android Self-Hosted Cloudron Website

    Searx is a free internet metasearch engine which aggregates results from more than 70 search services. Users are neither tracked nor profiled. Additionally, searx can be used over Tor for online anonymity.

    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.
