What is Search Encrypt?
Search Encrypt is a Chrome extension designed to protect your online search privacy. It encrypts your queries using AES-256 encryption alongside SSL, ensuring that your search terms are secure and not traceable back to you. With a network of search partners, it delivers the results in a private manner, letting the terms expire post-search to maintain confidentiality. It doesn't track user-identifiable information, empowering you to use the web without sacrificing personal data.

Search Encrypt uses local encryption to secure your searches. Our private search engine combines AES-256 encryption with Secure Sockets Layer encryption. It then retrieves your search results from our network of search partners. After you're done searching, your search terms expire so they stay private even if someone else has access to your computer.

Using Search Encrypt will allow you to search the web with total confidence and privacy. Unlike search engines that track you, we don't track any of your user-identifiable information. Searching the web shouldn't require handing over tons of your personal information, which is why we've created our private search engine to keep your data safe.

Using Search Encrypt as your default search engine will help you practice safe searches online! Feel free to contact us with any further questions you have at

Permissions we request:

"activeTab", "tabs", "webNavigation"

We use these permissions to protect information you enter into forms on the sites we protect you on. Some sites use keystroke logging to track any words you enter into a search field. These permissions allow us to block those logs and let you know which fields are safe, by displaying a tooltip.
