Privacy Essentials

We don’t store or share any of your searches or personal information, with anyone, because you — and only you — should control your privacy online.

Private search – how it works

Privado allows you to search privately. Unlike other browsers and search engines, Privado does not save your history and cookies on your browser. In addition, we enhance your local browsing privacy: if you forget to close your Privado tab after completing your search, your Privado search history will be deleted from your browser after few minutes of inactivity.

Privado allows you to browse the web privately without exposing your identity to the destination sites. This is enabled by our ‘Proxy’ feature: when you browse with ‘Proxy’ enabled, all the organic websites are visited privately. Your personal machine IP will be hidden from organic sites that you visit, and you will be completely anonymous to the destination site.

When you hit the search button, communication to Privado servers is done using SSL encryption: encrypting your search term locally before being sent to our servers. Privado servers store your searches for 96 hours to make sure you are a valid user (not a bot or bad traffic). Post 96 hours, your searches and PII* is deleted.

We do not share your data with any other third party but the search provider: Bing. Your query and personally identifiable information are transfered to the search provider in order to bring you the most precise search results. Bing anonymizes your machine’s IP by changing its last octet to ‘0’ after 96 hours.

Search results may include sponsored results and organic results. Proxy feature works on organic results only.

* PII data (Personally Identifiable Information): IP address, User Agent and Url Referrer.
