Forget Google | Use these search engines if you want to protect your privacy
One thing is certain: there is no search engine more popular than Google. If someone has access to the internet, chances are they use Google now or have used it at some point in the past.
There’s no doubt that Google is huge, and there’s a very good reason for that. Not only does it offer a ton of features, but it’s the default in most browsers, it’s really easy to use, and it often seems like Google even knows what you want to search for before you do.
Of course, there is also a reason for this. Google is not the most private search engine available. Google collects so much information about you that it’s borderline creepy. The search engine may collect some of this information even when you are not signed in to your Google account, including your IP address, location, and the device you are using.
Fun fact, if you go linkyou can get a pretty good idea of what Google knows about you based on your search history, the contents of your Gmail account, and data collected from Google’s partner advertisers.
The good news is that Google isn’t the only search engine available. There are others that put your privacy first – and no, we’re not suggesting Bing, although it’s still worth mentioning. Read on for six great Google alternatives that take your privacy seriously.
