…your history is history

Your history is history

The lack of something is rarely described as a feature. But it is probably one of the most important features for a private search engine like Findx.

When you are using Findx, you are safe from surveillance, your online behaviour is not tracked – that is the whole idea behind a private search engine.

Why doesn’t Findx save your search history?

We value people’s online privacy, including yours, so every single time you search on Findx, it is anonymous. None of your searches, our services, or any third party will be able to link your previous searches to you – every time you search, it is as if it’s the first time. And you can keep searching in private – we don’t save your history, and we can’t share it.

That means we can’t use your history to guess what types of search results you will find most useful. We do not build a filter bubble around what you search for because we can’t bias the search results based on your online behaviour. It also means we can’t use your online history to target you with ads that follow you around the web.

Use a timer in the search field

How often would you like to be reminded to do something? It can be a hassle to find and set a manual timer, or pull up a dedicated timer app for your device. Or perhaps you are in a shared office and don't want a audible alarm?  » Read more
