StartPage HTTPS Search for Safari gives you convenient mobile access to StartPage.com, one of the world's most private search engines. StartPage lets you access Google search results privately and anonymously from the convenience of your smartphone or other mobile device. When you search with StartPage, we remove all identifying information from your query. We get the results and return them to you in total privacy, and then we delete all records of your visit. StartPage is the perfect tool for iron-clad privacy protections, plus great search results.
Other search engines record your search terms and the links you click on and build a detailed profile of 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 never 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.
All searches are encrypted using state-of-the-art SSL encryption. That means your service provider can't see what you search for, and neither can hackers or the NSA. Your searches are scrubbed and anonymized for privacy. StartPage protects you from physical intrusion by deleting your searches and Web history after a pre-set time, or whenever the app is closed or suspended. With one tap of your Home button, your searches are gone. StartPage strips out your search terms, so they can't be seen by the websites you visit. StartPage never uses tracking cookies, and rejects tracking cookies from websites you visit. StartPage never records your IP address, search terms, or location.
