Another solid search engine that you probably haven’t heard about is called Startpage.
While this search engine is private and doesn’t track your cookies, search history, or location and IP address, it does use Google to find and show you your search results. So the platform isn’t entirely independent, but it’s still a solid option for people who are looking for privacy.
What makes Startpage stand out is that it’s also an email service provider. You can create your own email address and keep your mail safe from cyber attacks and spam.
