THE WORLD'S MOST PRIVATE WEB SEARCH APP
StartPage Search gives you convenient mobile access to StartPage.com, the world's most private search engine.
It lets you search for information privately and anonymously, from the convenience of your smartphone or other mobile device.
It's the perfect tool for iron-clad privacy protections, plus great search results.
COMPLETE SEARCH PRIVACY AND ANONYMITY
Other search engines capture your search terms and record the links you click on, then use tracking cookies to build a detailed profile of you and your interests.
At StartPage, our zero data-collection policy and full SSL encryption is your assurance that nobody's looking over your shoulder, no matter what you search for.
We don't collect any personal information on our users.
We don't store your IP address, we don't capture your location, and we don't record what you searched for.
In fact, we keep no records on you at all. Nada. Zilch. Zero.

PRIVATE PROXY SURFING FEATURE
When you need extra privacy, you'll love our Proxy. It works by copying the web page you want to visit onto our server, so you see it through us, not them. Because you never make contact with the third-party website, they can't infect you with cookies or malware, and they can't see your IP address or other information. They only see us, while you stay safe and invisible behind the scenes.
You can use the StartPage Proxy to access any website you find through a StartPage search. Simply click the "Proxy" link under the search result.
Added a progress bar to display the progress of the webpage loading.
Minor UI and other bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
Finally there is a way to search the web without being tracked, like google, yahoo, etc. Unlike those search engines SmartPage tracks nothing or stores nothing (sites visited, censored what I see, etc). I have used SmartPage for a lot of things and aside from having to do a few more clicks of the pointer to find a business close to me or whatever, to me, its GREAT. I can find things a lit quicker because I'm not trying to filter through sites about what I'm looking for that are nothing but ads. I give SmartPage a “5 STAR” rating even with the having to do a few more clicks to find a business close to me. I would recommend anyone who wants a more open search without “Big Brother” watching. Get the app!!!
Excellent non-track searches
I’ve been using Start Page as my main search engine for over a year. My favorite thing is that you can print from it, something that Mozilla Black doesn’t seem capable of. Second fav thing is that if you’re going back and forth between apps your search results don’t instantly VANISH.
I have experienced a few odd results where they should’ve been obviously detailed, but these may have been due to outside factors—late software updates on the iPhone perhaps.
Overall I really really like it. It’s generally better than Duck Duck Go, and I love being freed from the shackles of demon google!!
I’m an activist, truther, research scientist, conspiracy hypothesis hacking, justice seeking human that would like to just keep it real with the layman society created by tv, movies and radio ADVERTISING. I use the net as my hands on library when I need quick information to substantiate claims I have to make against the matrix I was born into. Thanks to startpage and any others co.’s that focus on simple privacy!!!!!! It’s like, if u don’t have curtains on the windows, anyone can see inside!! Well, I hope to further learn how in the future we can all defeat the machine that continues to believe it will one day be as efficient as the human brain.
