Researchers, in fact all who go online, need to protect themselves from snoopers – and worse. An important initial step to protecting yourself, family and those you work with is to use a privacy-aware search engine. Four that may be useful in protecting you include:
- DuckDuck Go (Removes referral information; disallows cookies. does not “remember” your visit): https://duckduckgo.com/
- Ixquick (Does not track your IP address or retain search history): https://www.ixquick.com/
- Qwant (European): https://www.qwant.com/
- Yippy (Does not track activity, store history, record searches): http://www.yippy.com/
