Ixquick - The Only Search Engine That Does Not Record Your IP Address

Every time you use a regular search engine, your search data is recorded. Major search engines capture your IP address and use tracking cookies to make a record of your search terms, the time of your visit, and the links you choose - then they store that information in a giant database.

IxQuick was awarded the first European Privacy Seal, IxQuick privacy search engine will not record your IP address, other data like the search queries are deleted from the log files within a maximum of 48 hours, often sooner.

When you perform a search through Ixquick, you will see a ‘proxy’ option below the search results. (See screenshot below).

Click on this ‘proxy’ to enter the site anonymously.According to the company, they will never record your IP address, search queries or any details about your proxy usage.It keeps you invisible on the website you are viewing, and will not allow the viewed site to place cookies on your browser.
