Protect yourself from online tracking and search using Findx, an independent privacy-first search engine.
Findx Privacy Control - protect yourself from invisible tracking and spying ads when you search and browse.
"... but I have nothing to hide!" - sure about that?
You unwillingly provide ad networks, data brokers and search engines with valuable and sensitive information when you browse and search the internet. Every page you visit, every search you make. Data is recorded and used to create detailed profiles about you.
Yes, even everything related to sexual preferences, medical conditions, financial situation, gambling habits. Even though you may "have nothing to hide", it is still feels a bit creepy, doesn't it?
Put a stop to it!
Your browsing habits and search history should be private, and they should never be shared without your consent. What you read and search for is <i>your</i> business only - Findx Privacy Control helps you achieve that.
Effective tracker blocking combined with our own search engine, Findx, makes it possible. You can also block all ads if you wish (we only block the creepy ones by default) - the choice is yours. We give you the tools to decide.
Search using a *real* privacy-by-default search engine
Findx is an independent search engine working by a "privacy by default" principle. We never collect or share information about you. We don't need to know who you are to provide our service.
Unlike most of the other privacy-centric search engines, Findx is a real search engine. Others, like DuckDuckGo and StartPage, get their results from Google and Bing, which means they cannot be certain that the results have not been shaped by the partner search engine based on their user's behavior and previous searches. At Findx, we have full control. We have our own index, the algorithm is ours, and we do not use previous searches as a ranking factor. Our search engine is even open source so you can have a look yourself.
As they say - just do it
Take back your privacy by installing the Findx Privacy Control extension. Help your friends and parents do the same. Let us work together to put a stop to creepy data collection.
Permissions required by this plugin
This extension requires permissions that may sound bad, but they are needed to be able to disable trackers and data collection from the sites you visit.
* Read and change all your data on the websites you visit. This is needed because we modify the pages as you browse them, to remove tracking scripts (and optionally ads if you have enabled that).
* Change your privacy-related settings. This is needed to tighten browser privacy settings.
