This falls into the better late than never category!
Back in February 6, 2018 I posted this…
For the record, I did do a quick google search.
My primary search engine for use is DuckDuckGo.
I’ll do a Thread on search engines shortly on how to escape Google’s grasp on your perceptions!
…and promptly forgot it!
To speed this up I am going to post two articles from the web, fell free to ask any questions.
12 Private Search Engines that Do Not Track You
Private browsing using the supposedly private or incognito modes on your regular browser does not give you the level of privacy you think it does. You might not want to be tracked and have made it clear to your default browser as to the fact, but you know that’s not the case when ads that are related to your recent searches turn up on Facebook or inside your Gmail.
When in doubt, opt for private search engines instead. Private Search Engines are the search engines that do not store your queries or track your steps on the Internet.
There’s actually quite a number of them with a range of features and methods to keep your searches safe. Most of these search engines are not much to look at but they’re not here to look pretty, they’re here to give you a safe way to search for things that matter to you.
DuckDuckGo is one of the most secure search engines that never tracks your searches while providing you an enhanced search experience. It’s purposely built for people who love to remain private, and delivers instant results without tailored ads on the search pages. This search engine serves 10M searches a day.
WolframAlpha is a computable search engine that provides accurate answers and offers open knowledge. It’s a knowledge-packed private search engine which nonetheless does not track what you search for.
This private search engine performs dynamic calculations using inbuilt algorithms and delivers expert knowledge about people, calculations, health & medicines, money & finance, music & movies and much more.
Startpage works powerfully to provide search results while protecting your searches and avoiding tracking your steps. It offers browsing through a proxy server to help protect you from websites tracking your IP address or location. You can add it to your browser, on Chrome or Firefox, and even change its color theme.
It’s not much to look at but Privatelee enables secure searches and strict filters if you need it. This search engine doesn’t keeps your search keywords to be used for ads or surveillance. Privatelee offers ‘PowerSearch‘ commands that lets you configure the search source and more. It is also known by an alternative name Qrobe.it.
With Yippy, you can manually filter the results category-wise and flag any inappropriate result. Unlike some engines, Yippy allows searching of many types of content including web, images, news, jobs, blogs, government data, etc.
Yippy also lets you view cached pages (like Google) and filter results by tag clouds, sources, websites. It does not track your search queries and doesn’t show customized ads.
Hulbee is a private search solution that delivers instant searches while not tracking your search or location history. Hulbee provides intelligent information yet never analyses or stores its visitors’ information.
Your searches are all encrypted for security against middleman attacks and data leaks. Among its options: choosing a region for most relevant search results and even lets you ‘clear your activity‘ to avoid leaving any trace overall.
Gibiru offers fully uncensored yet encrypted search engine to prevent data leaks to any third parties. Gibiru works faster than most private search engines because it uses ‘Google Custom Search‘ to provide its service. It does however remove all tracking methods used by Google.
It also offers a free Firefox/Chrome search bar to help you make anonymous searches right from your browser.
Disconnect Search uses content search assistance from major search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo but never tracks your online searches or activities or IP address. Disconnect Search lets you surf by location so that you can get location specific relevant results based on the location of your choice. It clearly informs about the tools that which are protected and unprotected, letting you choose which to use.
Lukol uses a proxy server to deliver customized search results from Google using its enhanced custom search yet conserves your privacy by removing traceable entities. Lukol is considered as one of the best private search engines that protects from online fraudsters and keeps the spammers away by safeguarding you from misleading or inappropriate sites. It ensures full anonymity of your searches.
MetaGer lets you make confidential untraceable searches that leave no footprints. It also integrates a proxy server so that you can open any link anonymously from the search result pages and yet keep your IP address hidden from the destination server. It also never tracks your keywords.
This prohibits third parties or advertisers to target you for ads or any of malicious attacks. Its default language is in German.
Gigablast indexes billions of web pages and provides real time info without tracking your online searches or browsing history. It is considered as one of the best private search engines that keeps you almost entirely hidden to marketers and spammers.
Gigablast offers searching with certain customizations and optional parameters like searching by exact phrase, languages, terms, filetypes and many more.
Oscobo is an anonymous search engine that allows no tracking of any type. This search engine does not store or track user data in any way, nor does it let any third party hack or misuse users’ data.
Like a few of the private search engines here, it lets you search for information, images, videos, news, etc. It also offers a Chrome extension for making searches.
The above is probably all most of you need, but below is for those ready for a little deeper look.
Secure your computer for privacy first.
Best Uncensored Search Engines for Anonymous Searching
Uncensored search engines are nothing more than search engines, which help you, browse the censored part of the Internet.
It might already be known to you, but just in case you’re a new player to these grounds, let us share some enlightenment, what we generally access the websites, social media, download portals etc are the uncensored part of the Internet.
They’re easily available on Google/Bing/Yahoo or any other search engine and can be accessed with any general browser such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Internet Explorer.
What are Uncensored Search Engines?
Exactly what the opening lines of this article stated them to be. I’m sure you’ve heard of the Deep Web, the actual mass of the Internet (because the Internet available to the general public is just around 1% of the actual Internet, the rest comprises of the Deep Web).
So, obviously the Deep web can’t be accessed simply by keying-in the search term on Google, nope that won’t help, simply because the content on the Deep web is censored, and Google doesn’t allow such content to be available to users.
So, that’s when you’d need an uncensored search engine. A search engine which does not censor its content and let’s you access absolutely everything is what we’re talking about here.
And it’s not only limited to the .onion websites, anything and everything which isn’t accessible by those traditional browsers can generally be accessed with an uncensored search engine!
But before visit any of listed uncensored search engine, I want to share something with you that can help you to protect your identity on the internet.
You already know, this website is totally dedicated to the deep web or hidden internet that why I am expecting you to, you always offer the first priority to below-given Onion URL, not Clearnet URL, because Normal browser also tracks your all activity even you are using the uncensored search engine or not.
If you are beginner and first time hearing the term deep web or dark web then this paragraph, only dedicated to you, because you don’t know how to access the below-given Onion URL, then I want to suggest you check out my step by step guide that clear all small or big points that can protect you. Must read: How to access the deep web links
If you are already aware about what is deep web or dark web and also know how to access then for your quick review I am suggesting some quick steps before visiting any onion link.
If you are using windows 10 then please fix your privacy breach, because Windows 10 automatically track your all activity and sent to the Microsoft organization, want to know how to fix then check out windows 10 privacy fixer.
Download tor Browser and install in your PC. But Don’t run Tor Browser right now.
Download NordVPN and install in your PC, and Configure Setting after install, the mandatory setting is on Internet Kill Switching or App kill switching.
Connect your NordVPN client by any Onion over VPN server, if the connection is successfully setup then go to next step
Now Start your Tor browser, Icon you can find on your desktop.
Now you are ready for visiting any onion link or deep web links.
Best Uncensored Search Engines for Anonymous Searching
So, here’s a list of the top uncensored search engines which help you dig the hidden (censored) websites from the huge Internet graveyard.
Duck Duck Go
This is the default search engine provided with the TOR browser. DuckDuckGo is also available on, and for the regular web, so you can use it both to access the deep web, as well as your regular websites.
They are primarily in demand for the fact that they are anonymous, and do not keep track of your activities, search history, interests, or anything else for that matter.
Also, they are one of very few uncensored search engines which actually show deep web marketplace URLs directly on the search page.
That’s exactly the kind of uncensored search engine you need while accessing the hidden/censored parts of the web, isn’t that so?
Not only that, but DuckDuckGo also doesn’t show any Ads like most traditional browsers, and even though it’s not a deal-maker, relief from those ads is surely something I personally look forward to.
The Interface resembles that of Google Chrome and has similar features and filters, but obviously, it’s much more liberal and un-conservative as compared to Chrome. DDG 100% offers to take back privacy to users and user free to access or search anything on the internet without any privacy or anonymity problem.
Torch is the combination of TOR Search Engine. They have been around for a long-enough period of time, which also accounts for the fact that they claim to have over a million pages of “censored content”.
Personally, I’m not a TORCH fan for the reason that it’s spammed to death with ads, even their homepages both on the TOR network as well as the regular net are brimming with ads and most-annoying of all, these ads are hidden and get clicked unintentionally.
But taking them in the light of “Uncensored search engines” and with a pinch of salt surely does the job and gets you one of the best search engines to stroll around the censored alleys of the Internet.
And it does compensate for its losses by providing us with a Media Grabber (which let’s you download just about any kind of video or media directly in the browser), Torch Video, Torch Music, Torch Games etc which are nice little add-ons provided along with the browser.
It’s an uncensored search engines in the true sense, built specifically to help you find hidden TOR services (.onion URLs).
There’s a neatly placed search-bar on the homepage, just key-in your search term and it’ll get back to you with results.
It’s exclusively built for the TOR browser, so you won’t be able to land on the search results if you aren’t using TOR.
The only thing you won’t find on Ahmia from the deep web is child abuse material, it’s blacklisted (which is a good great feature!)
And the best part is that it doesn’t bombard you with ads either!
Onion URL: http://hss3uro2hsxfogfq.onion/ .Onion Pages Indexed: Yes
One of the simplest censored search engines (or deep web search engines) in other words in existence. The homepage reeks of simplicity as you might have already gathered from the screenshot above.
It boasts advanced features such as searching only for “titles” or complete “URLs”. Also it publicly displays its index number of hidden URLs, which at the time of writing this piece is 24796867!
Another advanced feature includes the ability to chat to other users across the globe, on the search engine, without any kind of login or signup!
And obviously, it displays .onion results for searches. A completely deep web rooted search engine!
Clearnet URL: https://www.deepwebsiteslinks.com Onion URL: Down .Onion Links: YES (Not Clearnet Links)
This is deep web links directory that holds mostly available active deep web or dark web links, also managed these links according to based on his category, only user need to select required category and find his desire link then explore onion site. I am writing this site in the hidden search engine list because deepwebsiteslinks.com offers bit amount active tor links with full description.
Uncensored Hidden Wiki
The Hidden Wiki is, in my personal opinion, literally the best answer to “uncensored search engine”, well I’m saying so because 90% of what appears on a Hidden Wiki search is censored, hidden content.
The links do not exactly lead to full-fledged websites, but to simple, not media but the content and text-rich single-pages.
You can literally find everything, from links to blogs and essays to drugs and weapon stores.
In fact, a major part of its existence is dedicated to helping you find hidden pages, for e.g. you simply choose “Drugs” from the table of contents on the right-side of the main page. And you’ll be taken to a section full of such links to Deep web markets and deep web forums.
WWW Virtual Library
Clearnet URL: http://vlib.org/ .Onion Pages Index: No
The virtual library doesn’t need much of an introduction, apart from the fact that its creator is the same person who created the “INTERNET”!
So that’s all the testimonial, trust-booster and everything else right there. Apart from that, it’s literally one of the oldest existing uncensored search engines, probably older than some of you reading this article, it’ll turn 27 at the end of 2017!
Although, it differs slightly from the other search engines as it doesn’t grant you a direct pathway to the Deep web links or marketplaces, but it surely hosts a number of resources which aren’t available on the general search engines used by us.
And what makes it “uncensored” is the fact that it doesn’t have a centralized ownership, instead is run and maintained by users like you and me.
Clearnet URL: http://gibiru.com/ .Onion Pages Index: No
Gibiru’s tagline itself says “ anonymous uncensored search engines ”. So what they’re basically offering is anonymity, which means they do not track your data and activities similar to DuckDuckGo.
Apart from its public disclaimer, it can also be paired up with a free plugin which helps increase your security and anonymity by letting you :
Delete the natural cookies on your computer.
Offers 25 free International proxies.
User agent spoofing
Although unlike DuckDuckGo, they do show ads which might be a bummer for some of you.
Onion URL: http://torlinkbgs6aabns.onion/ .Onion Pages Index: Yes
It’s officially one of the best places to stumble upon in case you do not know your directions through the censored web (deep web).
It’s a links’ directory, and you’ll find links to nearly anything and everything which isn’t available on the clearnet.
You can either directly click on the tabs on the header to land on specific sections of the page, or you can scroll down till you find the section you’re looking for.
Basically, the header says it all, doesn’t matter if you’re looking for Gambling portals, adult websites, drug stores, or anything else, it’ll have the address, period.
Clearnet URL: https://www.ixquick.com/ .Onion Pages Index: No
They market themselves as “World’s most private uncensored search engines”, although we can neither confirm nor deny these claims.
As far as the search engine goes, they do not list .onion URLs directly. Although they do have an inbuilt “proxy” mode, which works the same way as Chrome’s Incognito mode, but in this case, they do not store any data (cookies, history, IP address etc).
This proxy mode slows down your searches a bit, but it’s worth it if you’re a privacy geek.
Another factor worth singling out here is that, they do show “Ads by Google” (Adsense), but it doesn’t mean Google has direct access to their back-end, user-queries or any other data.
Onion URL: http://gjobqjj7wyczbqie.onion .Onion Pages Index: Yes
Candle is basically the “Google” (Unofficial, in no way affiliated to actual Google except its functionality) for uncensored sites or pages which I’m stating based on its logo which is an exact Spinoff from Google. It indexes only .onion sites which makes it an uncensored search engine.
Its UI is almost alike Google except the fact that it has a black background whereas Google has a white one, the results are displayed in a similar manner as on Google, with the URL as well as a description for the site.
However, it also adds additional information about the sites displayed such as the last uptime and downtime, exact to the hour and minute which is impressive. Also displays results in thousands which proves its indexation of quite a bit of the Darknet!
So those were the top uncensored search engines existing in the industry today, which also at times are used interchangeably as deep web search engines.
Obviously not all of these search engines index .onion links, but most do. And even those which do not, they still get you the benefits of an uncensored browsing experience, for e.g. they do not keep logs, and provide links to resources which otherwise might be hidden.
Remember your due diligence, don’t take my word for it do some research too!

This may be unrelated. What about E-mail services? Doesn’t matter or are there good options other than : AOL, Gmail, etc.
