Privacy-friendly search engine
08 November 2022
Search engines, even in privacy/incognito mode, log all your searches. Which they link to your IP address and browser profile. And sell that data to advertisers. Their can you prevent this? With your own meta search engine!
Peter talks about how you can use open source software to set up your own meta search engine that does protect your privacy. For this, he uses SearXNG and gives a demo on how to install it yourself. SearXNG is a free internet metasearch engine that aggregates results from more than 70 search services and does not track or profile you as a user.
