Almost really awesome

I've been looking for an app like this for a while, and this one is *almost* really awesome.

My issue is that it briefly navigates to the non-private site before redirecting to the more-private alternative.

An example is going to google.com. If I search for something on google.com, the browser will in fact navigate to google.com for 0.25 seconds before redirecting to duckduckgo.com. Since one of the ideas behind these private alternatives is to remain unknown to non-private sites, this app fails on that count. google.com's servers do record a web request from my mobile browser, from my IP address, and with my search terms.

I'd chock this up to a technical limitation, but the "Neeva" app intercepts search requests and redirects them to its own site, without first navigating to the default search engine. So it seems like this is a fix-able issue that the app developer could work on.

Works well, incredibly useful tool

Only requests would be an iOS Safari extension, and feature parity with Privacy Redirect for Firefox!

Please add Instagram->Bibliogram redirects, for instance.

Thank you!!

Developer Response ,

We've seen a whirlwind of changes since v1.0.2: an iOS Safari extension now exists, we've added support for Medium -> Scribe and Instagram -> Bibliogram redirects, designed a new app icon, and much more.

Glad that you're finding Privacy Redirect useful!

Not worth it.

I paid the two dollars. It only works less than half the time you go to a page… not all that impressed. Why can’t it redirect every time I go to one of the websites?? Seems like you are selling an unfinished piece of software….

Developer Response ,

Privacy Redirect only operates on specific pages – if you're encountering an issue with the redirects, please feel free to open an issue on our GitHub (we're open source!) and we can dive into specifics.
