Search Encrypt is a private search engine. It forces an advanced SSL encryption, which means communication between your computer, internet browser and web servers are secure and encrypted. Our search engine doesn't track any of your information, so your search terms can never be linked back to you. After you're done searching your history expires.

Two questions about privacy: 1. Are searches logged? 2. Do you fingerprint your users for ad targeting?
Christian StewartMaker@stewofkc · SEO & Social Media Specialist
@scotty_bowler Our server logs are disabled, so we don't log your searches. We encrypt the search terms locally before sending them to our servers. We don't track/fingerprint users. We serve individual ads based on your search terms, similar other privacy based search engines. Our FAQ page may be able to answer more of your questions. https://www.searchencrypt.com/ab...

How is this different from duck duck go?

@jonathant Search Encrypt offers perfect forward secrecy. For example, when you search your search terms are hidden locally and expire on your computer. This protects you against anyone with access to your computer to see what you searched for. Another difference is our browser extension. If you perform a tracked search in another search engine, we will redirect it through our private and encrypted search engine.

So I've been using this all day now (switched from start page) and the results have been hit and miss, especially for local searches. Out of curiosity, how are your results curated? p.s. The one thing I love about it is how fast it is, much quicker results than the other private searches.

@scotty_bowler Search Encrypt sources search results from Yahoo, Bing, and a few other places (Wikipedia, etc.). We appreciate the feedback though. As we continue to develop the search engine, its results should only improve.
