The Most PRIVATE Search Engine (2021)


Search engines completely revolutionized how we access the web. If you want to find a website, you can type in keywords and search engines will show you a list of websites that match your criteria. 

But your searches can reveal a lot of private information about you: your interests, location, medical conditions, political affiliation. 

Google has 90% of the market share for searches, and they track everything you do. This gives them a deep, granular insight into who you are, and this is information that they sell. 

Search engines are also an effective tool for controlling what information people have access to, and there are many studies that look at how search engines influence the behavior of users by filtering out some search results and prioritizing others. 

Luckily there are many ways you can protect your privacy and take back control over your quests for information. Sometimes you sacrifice the quality of your search results by doing this, but other times you’d be surprised at how good alternative results are. 

We look at the following privacy-focused browsers: 

 00:00 - What is a search engine?  

5:00 - DuckDuckGo  

6:56 - MetaGer  

8:00 - SearX  

9:15 - Qwant 

 10:17 - StartPage  

11:57 - Mojeek 

 13:01 - YaCy 

 14:24 - Brave Search 

 Always assess your personal risk and threat-level when choosing a search engine, and remember that taking small steps to minimize your internet footprint can go a long way in protecting your privacy!
