Startpage Private Search

Startpage BV
THE WORLD'S MOST PRIVATE WEB SEARCH APP
StartPage Search gives you convenient mobile access to StartPage.com, the world's most private search engine.
It lets you search for information privately and anonymously, from the convenience of your smartphone or other mobile device.
It's the perfect tool for iron-clad privacy protections, plus great search results.

COMPLETE SEARCH PRIVACY AND ANONYMITY
Other search engines capture your search terms and record the links you click on, then use tracking cookies to build a detailed profile of you and your interests.
At StartPage, our zero data-collection policy and full SSL encryption is your assurance that nobody's looking over your shoulder, no matter what you search for.
We don't collect any personal information on our users.
We don't store your IP address, we don't capture your location, and we don't record what you searched for.
In fact, we keep no records on you at all. Nada. Zilch. Zero.

OVERVIEW OF STARTPAGE SEARCH PRIVACY FEATURES
- All searches are encrypted using powerful SSL encryption. That means your service provider can't see what you search for—and neither can hackers.
- Your searches are scrubbed and anonymized for privacy.
- StartPage Search protects you from physical intrusion by deleting your searches and Web history after a set time delay, or the app is closed or suspended. With one tap of your Home button, your searches are gone.
- StartPage Search strips out your search terms, so they can’t be seen by the websites you visit.
- StartPage Search never uses tracking cookies, and rejects tracking cookies from websites you visit.
- StartPage Search never records your IP address, search terms, or location.

PRIVATE PROXY SURFING FEATURE
When you need extra privacy, you'll love our Proxy. It works by copying the web page you want to visit onto our server, so you see it through us, not them. Because you never make contact with the third-party website, they can't infect you with cookies or malware, and they can't see your IP address or other information. They only see us, while you stay safe and invisible behind the scenes.

You can use the StartPage Proxy to access any website you find through a StartPage search. Simply click the "Proxy" link under the search result.

Note: For security reasons, the Proxy restricts web forms and JavaScript, and websites may not be optimized for mobile devices (since we don't even tell them you're on a mobile device!)

What's new in version 1.5
Our new mobile app delivers search results in a new and improved design.
