As we drive the Presearch model forward, we begin the process of making more search options available for all Presearchers.
The first goal of adding new providers is to level the search playing field and introduce a more collaborative approach to search that respects and promotes the wide range of search resources on the web.
The second goal is to expand your search choices by showing you all the search options that are available and make it easier for you to select your preferred search destination.
To this end, we are happy to announce the addition of one of our most requested provider additions: European search engine, Qwant.
“Qwant delivers the best available results to your queries and never tries to guess who you are or what you are doing. We strongly believe that what you search on the Web is an important part of your privacy.
Therefore Qwant never records your searches and never uses your personal data for advertising or other purposes.”
Qwant was launched in 2013 and exemplifies #privacy and #neutrality. Based in France, they offer a news-style homepage and several extra features that users will love, all the while keeping your privacy secure.
Let’s have a look at the features Qwant offers its users:
Rolled into one neat package, Qwant offers a search engine that displays a firm grasp of the ethics of search while still providing you the search results you need.
They run their search engine with this ethos by creating (and living by) two fundamental pillars: “Protecting your privacy by not collecting any personal data linked to your queries, and guaranteeing neutrality and impartiality of results.”
Qwant has created an official app that allows you to have quick access to their search services from your phone or mobile device using all the pro-privacy perks Qwant holds dearly.
This extension of the Qwant family is dedicated to children, allowing them to perform web searches and learn in the safest environment.
It works by using the Qwant search engine but has an applied filter to eliminate any inappropriate results. Results that have recognized educational value are also more highly prioritized.
As useful as other data-oriented organization apps, such as Trello, Qwant Boards offer their users a way to organize and share notes, data or information gathered from their private searches.
What we love is that this is another feature in the stable of the Qwant pro-privacy products. “Qwant never uses these Boards to profile its users for advertising purposes.”
So, How Does Qwant Work With Presearch?
Presearch is dedicated to your privacy. We are always pleased when we can offer our users an additional resource to help them take control of what they put on the internet.
Qwant is now available as a search option from your Presearch dashboard.
Enter your search term and choose Qwant as your search provider. Done.
You can also make Qwant your default search provider by following these steps:
- Log into Presearch.org
- Click the ‘Customize’ link below the search field
- Search for Qwant in the ‘Search Providers’ field
- Make Qwant your default engine by dragging the Qwant logo to the default position
