Privacy Search Game is ON!

Web search engines have been around since 1993 (World Wide Web Wanderer)  and are an essential part of our lives at this point.  Around 2008, a web search engine launched called CUIL, which seems to be the first web search engine that included user privacy features. Cuil's privacy policy, unlike that of other search engines, said it did not store users’ search activity or IP addresses.

We decided to take some time to list any Privacy focused web search engines we could find for you below (in no particular order).


Infinity Search - https://infinitysearch.ai/

"We made Infinity Search so that people could use the internet in a more efficient and enjoyable way. It is usually very inconvenient for people to search for topics and gather information about them from various online sources. By aggregating results from several search engines and displaying them neatly in one place, people can use this service as a powerful tool to learn more about a subject at a much faster rate."
