Search Encrypt is a search engine, similar to Google, Yahoo! and Bing. However, it is a private search engine, so it doesn't use the tracking that major search engines are known for. Search Encrypt doesn't track any user-identifiable data, so your searches will remain anonymous. Is Search Encrypt Safe?
Choose To Encrypt
Our search engine has changed a lot in the past year. We've made more improvements recently that will help you find exactly what you're looking for online. Look for more changes coming in the future to improve our search engine's privacy and usability. Our latest change is to our video feed.

Apple's answer to the Amazon Echo and Google Home released on February 9th. According to The Verge, Apple sold out of its HomePod preorders the day before public launch. Another option for consumers gives more control over which company has access to their data.

Did you know that most search engines have a profile on file about what kind of person they think you are? On most search engines, every single search you make is stored and analyzed to build a better idea of what demographic you fit into- all so that the companies can serve you advertisements they think you're more likely to click on.

The internet is facing a major issue. One that could threaten our democracy in the United States, and has already divided our country politically. The issue is filter bubbles. Filter bubbles refer to the state of intellectual isolation that can result from personalized searches on search engines or social media sites.

If you want to remove Search Encrypt's Chrome or Firefox extension, think again about the data you would be handing over to big search engines without Search Encrypt. Search Encrypt redirects your searches from search engines like Google to our private search engine that doesn't track any identifiable information about you.

Edward Snowden. Equifax. Apple and the FBI. Carpenter v. United States. Digital privacy is big. People are worried about protecting their data from hackers, companies and government organizations. Every time a company, like Equifax or Yahoo, leaks user data, people become less trusting of anyone with access to their sensitive information.
Search Encrypt Blog
Search Encrypt's internet search engine forces an advanced SSL encryption, which means communication between your computer, internet browser and web servers are secure and encrypted. SSL encryption means that your personal data isn't transmitted over the servers in plain text. We source our search results from Yahoo and Bing.
