On Ixquick there is an option under the search result to enter the site via proxy.

I also like this about it...https://ixquick.com/eng/phone.html

I use google. They do like to store data especially of you've got a google account. It is a bit worrying. They'll have plenty of info on me. I've got an Android phone so google probably store wherever I go, who I call and text. I use gmail, google to search with, watch YouTube, use google drive to store some files and use the chrome browser.

Scary when you think about it.

Ixquick Protects Your Privacy!

The only search engine that does not record your IP address.
Your privacy is under attack!

Every time you use a regular search engine, your search data is recorded. Major search engines capture your IP address and use tracking cookies to make a record of your search terms, the time of your visit, and the links you choose - then they store that information in a giant database.

Those searches reveal a shocking amount of personal information about you, such as your interests, family circumstances, political leanings, medical conditions, and more. This information is modern-day gold for marketers, government officials, black-hat hackers and criminals - all of whom would love to get their hands on your private search data.

Why should you worry?

Major search engines have quietly amassed the largest database of personal information on individuals ever collected. Unfortunately, this data can all too easily fall into the wrong hands. Consider the following story:

In August 2006, the online world was jarred when AOL accidentally released three months' worth of aggregated search data from 650,000 of its users, publishing all the details in an online database.
That database is still searchable. It is an absolute eye-opener to see the potential for privacy nightmares.
http://www.aolstalker.com/ —>Enter a query and find who searched for it
—>Then click on a "User ID" to find what else this user searched for

Shocked? You are not alone.
When we search, we share our most private thoughts with our computers.
These private thoughts should be safe.


Ixquick's position:

You have a right to privacy.
Your search data should never fall into the wrong hands.
The only real solution is quickly deleting your data or not storing them to begin with.
Since January 2009 we do not record our users' IP addresses anymore.
Your personal data are not shared with any third party.
We are the first and only search engine to do so.
Since then we have added many other features that protect your privacy.
Our initiative is receiving an overwhelmingly positive response!

Ixquick will wholeheartedly continue on its mission to offer you great search results in the best possible privacy!


This user searched for these :howl:
