Security: Spy-free Searching with Qwant

When you open one of the leading search engines such as Google or Bing, everything you look for online is completely transparent. Every action you perform is logged and stored. The operators of these search engines analyse your Internet behaviour and create a detailed profile of you based on the things you search for while you are online. They then use this to display adverts tailored to your profile.

But it gets worse: the personal data that is collected is also sold to other companies who will also proceed to inundate you with adverts. Put an end to this snooping and avoid using Google, Bing and other such search engines. Using the steps in this article you’ll be able to surf anonymously and protect your privacy.
