Blumble is a “privacy friendly” search engine. We take user privacy very seriously.
By using Blumble (instead of for example Google) you drastically reduce the amount of data that is collected about you. At Blumble, we don’t create personal profiles of you, but anonymize all searches after 7 days. Google has lots of other services (Android, Chrome, Gmail, YouTube, Google Analytics being used on other websites etc.), which means they can combine data from a lot of sources and create a detailed profile of you to show you personalized search results and advertisements.
There are only a few search engines with their own web index – for example Google, Bing, Yandex and Baidu. Most other general web search engines cooperate and share data with these companies in some form. We currently work with Bing and are very transparent about what we share with them.
Beyond that, no search engine can ever provide perfect protection of your search data, because other parties – like your network provider or browser for example – might still be able to access some of your data. In order to protect your identity and data even more, we recommend checking out security tools like VPNs and services like TOR.
