How Does Search Encrypt Work?

Search Encrypts protects your search information from being tracked by big search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. Whenever you do a search that may be tracked, Search Encrypt blocks the tracking and directs you to its secure search results.

So, what happens when I search with Search Encrypt?

Intercept & Redirect

Searches that may be tracked are stopped from processing and redirected to our privacy-enhanced search engine.

Advanced Encryption

Search Encrypt forces an advanced SSL encryption with perfect forward secrecy. We also encrypt your search term locally before being sent to our servers.

Expiring Browser History

No one can snoop on your browsing history! Even if you haven’t cleared out your history, after 15 minutes of inactivity, you search term is completely gone.

Search Encrypt takes multiple steps towards delivering a great user experience that makes data security the top priority. Read more about the information you are protecting by using Search Encrypt: Does A Privacy-Based Search Engine Exist?
