Search engines such as Google and Bing are helpful for getting to what we may be searching for, but in exchange, they gather lots of valuable marketing info as we use them.
With all of today's privacy concerns, many of you may be looking for a more private way to search for things online.
Startpage.com is a search tool that knows that people have a need for privacy at times and promotes what they call "the world’s most private search engine".
Most search engines will capture your IP address along with what you were searching for, any sites you may have come from and the links you clicked in the results.
Startpage.com does not capture any of these items, but still gives you the results from the powerful Google search system.
It’s kind of like the Harry Potter 'invisibility cloak', because it provides a barrier to your details when you use it to generate search results.
