Why Should You Delete Your Google History?
Our main focus is to allow users to browse the web privately, in turn eliminating opportunities for information to be leaked or hacked. This gives users peace of mind and confidence, in knowing that their information is safe. We believe it is in the user’s best interest to have as little information on the web as possible–because more information, and personalization, doesn’t always lead to a better user experience.
By deleting information off the web and choosing services that don’t need your information to offer positive experiences, you are helping make privacy the norm. By challenging services that aren’t privacy based, it encourages these industry leaders to shift their practices to minimize consumer risk.
Search Encrypt — The Privacy Based Search Engine
Unlike Google, we don’t track you. Search Encrypt doesn’t track any identifiable information about its users. Search Encrypt has a feature called “perfect forward secrecy” that makes sure users never have to worry about the security of their data.
We designed Search Encrypt to be private from the ground up. It makes sure that your data is secure and encrypted both locally and on our servers. Search Encrypt uses industry-standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer), which keeps your search terms encrypted and private. Private search engines are a valuable tool that can protect you and your information. Our goal is to make the internet a safer and more private place in the future.
Another plus is that with Search Encrypt you’ll never have to worry about clearing your history. After 15 minutes your encryption keys expire. This way no one will be able to see what you’ve been searching for on Search Encrypt.
