Questions and Answers
What distinguishes the anonymous search engine Swisscows from other search engines?
Who guarantees that my data is really not stored in the private search engine Swisscows?
Protecting our users' data is an essential part of our DNA and thus a core promise of the anonymous search engine Swisscows. We do not store data, build search history or deliver ads based on collected data. Our technology is built in such a way that the storage of user data is not even possible.
Are the search results on the private search engine Swisscows as good as on other search engines?
With us you are sure to find what you are looking for! Thanks to the cooperation of our anonymous search engine with Bing, as well as over 20 years of experience and research in the field of search technologies and a constant development, there are hardly any search requests that we cannot fulfill. The index-based country search and Swisscow's semantics ensure intelligent and fast finding.
How can I switch from another search engine to the anonymous search engine Swisscows?
Switching is possible at any time. To use the anonymous search engine Swisscows as the default search engine in the browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.), simply click on the link that appears below the search box and follow the browser-specific instructions. This is as simple and safe as searching with the anonymous search engine Swisscows.
How does the anonymous search engine Swisscows earn its money?
We earn money with search ads delivered by Bing. Swisscows has an exclusive cooperation agreement with Bing. These ads appear exclusively based on your own search query, which is submitted to Bing. The anonymous search engine Swisscows does not collect personal data and accordingly cannot transmit any data. From each click on an ad, Swisscows receives a share of the advertising revenue from Bing. In this way, we continue to invest in our technology and support social projects.
Why is the private search engine Swisscows against surveillance?
Our vision is that every user can be online without fear of surveillance, annoying advertising and unwanted data storage. We have been working towards this goal for over 20 years. Fortunately, data security has now become a relevant topic and many people have understood what all happens to their data completely without their knowledge.
We don't want to share our users' data, we want to value it. That's why we developed Swisscows, the anonymous search engine, and other products:
• TeleGuard - our data secure messenger (WhatsApp alternative)
• Swisscows - works like a firewall and also helps to visit websites anonymously
• GetDigest - an AI-based program that helps summarize web content and text documents and quickly delivers the relevant information.
Our growing team continues to develop and research innovations that protect users and their privacy on the World Wide Web.
Our anonymous search engine does not store your data!
Swisscows has no interest in your data. In our search engine, your data is neither stored nor is a search history built up - thus we guarantee absolute anonymity.
