OTHER GREAT SERVICES


Here are listed some other good products/services that will also help you to keep some privacy. We are not affiliated with any of these (or other) services, but we just like them so much that we want to bring them up on this site.

Opera

Opera browser is based on the same browser engine that Google's browser. It works fast and has nice GUI. It won't report to Google that where you visit, has integrated ad block and it will have also nice integrated proxy (that they call VPN) for enhanced privacy protection. So use Opera, or good old Firefox, with some extensions, like Adblock, to keep some waste out.

DuckDuckGo

The Duckduckgo search engine has already been around for some years, and growing every year. It uses mainly Microsoft’s Bing search engine on the background, but it masks you from it, and won’t track your searches either. They also do a great job by donating money to some privacy/security related open source projects every year.

StartPage

StartPage might have a bit strange name for a search engine, but it is an excellent service. Basically it will just let you to use Google’s search engine, but without telling to google that who made that search. Company is based in the Europe/Netherlands and has been awarded with European Privacy Seal from it’s sister service ixquick (, which is similar to DuckDuckGo). They have been in steady growth for years too.

Qwant

Qwant is another search engine (brand new and based in Europe/France!) that doesn’t track your searches either. It is fully new and not yet on par with Google, but does a decent job on basic searches. You should check it out.

Telegram is a secure and popular messenger app. Like WhatsApp, but your messages are not scanned for commercial use, or by the US government. It is also free (and half open source), so switch to that! Telegram is operated by a German non-profit company.

OpenStreetMap

Open Street map is a great alternative to Google Maps, if you want to find a location or get directions. It doesn’t contain satellite images and all the other bells and whistles that Google has, but in some cases it is more accurate. And it won’t track you. It is supported by OpenStreetMap Foundation, a UK-registered not-for-profit organization. Check it out!
