With Qwant, search in private mode.

What if your private life remained private? What if your searches didn't make you an advertising target? What if your movements were not used by third parties? Good news, it's possible: just download Qwant, the search engine that knows nothing about you and it changes everything!

A search engine that respects the privacy of its users

Launched in 2013, Qwant is a French search engine that guarantees its users respect for their privacy and the same search results for everyone. On mobile, the Qwant application (free) is also a browser that allows users to surf the web in complete confidentiality. Because we believe that your personal data is none of our business, Qwant never keeps it. They are not used or sold to third parties. That's why Qwant blocks advertising and tracking cookies. Ethics, relevance of searches, confidentiality: the Qwant application is both THE search engine and THE private web browser that gives back anonymity to its users.

A complete and easy-to-use mobile application

The Qwant application offers its users the same guarantees as on a computer. Even better: on smartphones, it goes beyond its function as a search engine and becomes a browser that, in addition to respecting privacy and providing instant access to relevant results, allows for fluid, fast and (still) tracking-free browsing. This quality of service also translates into search results that only reflect the keywords used, not your search history.

The new modern Search Engine

I’ve been searching for a search engine that isn’t compromised. I’m not too worried about the tracking as much as I am with having truth suppressed and search results showing favoritism to one political party. Google is plummeting fast. It’s a satanic company along with Chrome (hence adreno-CHROME) yep, it’s right in our faces. But thank you Qwant for not suppressing truths and not showing search results that only your company supports. You allow everyone to think for themselves regardless of your political views and beliefs. Please do not change this about your company. Qwant definitely has a very bright and successful future ahead. Congratulations :)

Maybe Secure, but a slower browser

I heard about this browser from my friends and decided to give it a try. It’s been a week now. Looks like it’s built on Firefox model, as the UI looks ditto. I liked initially, but as days progressed, I didn’t find any value in this browser as this seemed like the slowest mobile browser I had used in a while. Safari or Chrome for that matter are ultra fast even when it’s a poor connection or slower WiFi. Qwant took me forever that it reminded me of the 90s dial-up connection. The same query after losing patience I hit it on my safari with DuckDuckGo as the search engine and it presented with plenty of results in under a second. I don’t know what you folks are doing differently, but needs a lot of improvement at least in my opinion and user experience. You need to crank up the speed. That’s why it’s a 2 star now. But maybe I will use it for another couple of months and update the review if it gets better.

Perfect Browser for Privacy

Built on a Mozilla core and modified specifically for private searching Qwant is perfect for this purpose. Unlike the main Firefox build this browser doesn’t rely on Google or additional third party tools to accomplish the simple goal of searching. Qwant is proprietary and isn’t a front for any data miners. Thank you so much Qwant for your dedication to respecting privacy and not slipping into making your user base the product.
