Looking for an alternative to Google? Try these three interesting options

If you are looking for an internet search system that does not record your every step on the global network, there are several alternative systems that make it safer and more private.

If, as a Google Account holder, you sometimes want a little peace of mind in the form of online privacy while searching, the search for alternative solutions can be frustrating. We’ve chosen three great search engines that, unlike Google, don’t crave your private data.

DuckDuckGo

The first choice is the most famous one. DuckDuckGo does not collect your personal information and perform searches so as not to leave the user feeling anxious caused by numerous tracking systems. DuckDuckGo is the perfect choice for anyone who wants Big Brother not to dig through their search history.

It should also be noted that this search engine is very competent and offers a number of effective options, which we are used to with large search engines.

Search Encrypt

Search Encrypt is a  private search system that uses local encryption to ensure user privacy when searching the World Wide Web. It uses a combination of encryption methods, including SSL and AES 256. SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer and stands for TCP / IP transport protocol that allows encryption of traffic on the intranet. AES-256 stands for 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard and is one of the most common methods for encrypting important data, and is used by organizations such as Apple and Microsoft, and even the NSA.

When you enter a query, Search Encrypt will pull the results from the network of secure partners and provide the requested information. The best thing about this is definitely the 'duration' of searches that will be deleted, making your computer safe even if someone later decides to look for search traces on it.

StartPage

StartPage is a great solution because it serves query answers directly from Google. This is a great solution for users who do not want the internet giant to have an insight into the things they are searching for. StartPage also has a URL generator and proxy service and supports HTTPS.

The URL generator is especially useful because it eliminates the need to collect cookies. It instead remembers the settings in a way that advocates for user privacy.
