Thread for Search Engines that do not track you

    I didn't find any threads at DP devoted just to listing search engines that don't track you so I thought I'd get one started. This is for anyone determined to get away from advertisers and advertisement-based search engines.
    SEMrush
    DuckDuckGo:
    https://duckduckgo.com

    StartPage:
    https://startpage.com - they have a new look coming here: https://new.startpage.com/eng/

    ixQuick (yes same company as StartPage.com): https://ixquick.com - same deal with ixQuick, a new look here: https://new.ixquick.com/eng/

    Blekko: http://blekko.com -
    Blekko does log personally identifiable information, but deletes it within 48 hours. You can disable the data collection entirely by enabling the SuperPrivacy setting. Blekko even lets you disable ads entirely. Note: To bring up settings for Blekko you may have to move your mouse cursor to the top of their website and then a drop down menu will appear. P.S. I'm starting to think Blekko has search results most comparable to my own Google searches. For instance, when I type a phrase in quotes, Belkko returns results with that exact phrase in an amount numerically similar to Google.


    Mojeek: https://www.mojeek.com - based in the United Kingdom, seems to give more streamlined results but no image search, as of yet. Mojeek provides an attractive alternate search page here: https://www.mojeek.com/?img=1

    Please feel free to add more search engines to this thread with the condition that they must not track their users.

    I just found a new private search engine today. It seems EpicBrowser has a search engine out:

    Epic Search:
    https://www.epicsearch.in/ - Note concerning Epic's browser from their FAQ: "Should I log into Gmail when I use Epic?
    If you’re doing searches via Google in Epic, then we would strongly recommend you not log into Gmail while using Epic. Google’s new privacy policy allows it to aggregate your personal data across all its services. So if you’re logged into Gmail, then Google can track your searches."

    Found another private search engine with web, image, video and news search at https://private.me/
    It would be great if other members can help in finding more search engines respectful of privacy. I don't want to be the only one bumping this thread.
