Ixquick Scores Another First: Encrypts ALL Internet Searches
https://us2.ixquick.com/

October 24, 2011


As of today, Ixquick, the "world's
most private search engine", automatically encrypts
ALL internet searches. Ixquick was the first search
engine to offer SSL encryption in 2009, and today it
again breaks new ground by making SSL encryption the
default.


SSL encryption, also known as
secure socket layer encryption, is widely praised by
security experts as the most secure way to surf the
web. Ixquick's encryption prevents eavesdropping by
Internet Service Providers (ISPs) who may become
legally required to store massive amounts of
personal information on you.


"Snooping ISP's or hackers could
become an enormous, Orwellian privacy threat," says
Robert E.G. Beens, CEO of Ixquick. "That's why we've
decided to change our websites’ default to 100% SSL
encryption, to further protect the privacy of our
users' Internet searches."


All visitors to Ixquick.com and its
sister search engine Startpage.com will benefit from
the new encryption service, which will automatically
redirect them to the secure website. Users will see
the letters "HTTPS" in the URL bar, indicating that
all data will be transmitted in encrypted form. Any
hacker or eavesdropper who accesses the connection
will simply see gobbledygook.


Other search engines like Google,
Yahoo and Bing have begun to follow Ixquick’s lead
by offering SSL encryption. However, the privacy
benefits of using SSL with other major search
engines may be misleading, since those search
engines themselves record users' IP address and
store extensive records of their searches.


"When you use Ixquick.com or
Startpage.com, your IP address is not recorded, your
visit is not logged, and no tracking cookies are
placed on your browser," explains Beens. "In fact,
we do not record any information about our users.
Nothing. Nada. Zilch".


Automatic SSL encryption is just
the latest addition to the growing family of privacy
features which combine to make Ixquick the world's
most private search engine.
