100 Days to Privacy Online: Day 10 – Using SearX for Privacy Friendly Search

Let’s face it. Search engines collect a lot of information about us to use for advertising and other reasons. For those trying to have privacy it can be tough going. We have covered DuckDuckGo in our first day’s post. But wanted to get into more detail. A good option for search is using a SearX installation or even run your own.

SearX is what is referred to as a Meta Search Engine allowing you to search multiple engine like Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo and more. You can go into preferences and choose which search engines to use. Along with having great files, news, and social media search options.

By using an installation that does not log visitors you are able to search all major resources without them building profiles on you or saving your search history. All searches look like they come from the SearX install.
