Disconnect Search Comes To Android; Allows Tracking-Free Google, Bing & Yahoo Queries

If you talk to people about NSA’s PRISM program, most will seem disinterested, probably because they fail to realize how much of their data is being monitored. Though, if you’re like me, all the hullabaloo that the program’s outing caused must have scared you. After all, it is believed to be collecting and analyzing data from pretty much every tech giant (Google, Facebook and the like), and could be listening in on your phone calls, monitoring your emails or checking in on your cloud drives. In October last year, the folks behind Disconnect – a Chrome and Firefox extension that blocks online data tracking – released another tool for the same browsers to protect your privacy while using search engines. Their latest solution, called Disconnect Search, has made its way to Android with the aim to provide a safer search environment on your mobile device by masking your IP address...

Disconnect carries robust functionality under the hood to keep you safe online. It doesn’t affect other browsers, though. The app provides its own search interface. Whenever you perform a query via one of the major search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Blekko, or DuckDuckGo from within the Disconnect Search interface, it automatically prevents tracking cookies and other scripts from leeching on your personal information.
The interface is as bare-bones as they come. There’s nothing but a search field in the middle of the screen, tapping which allows you to enter your query.

You can, of course, choose the search engine you want to employ for your query. To do that, tap the current search engine name just beneath the search field on the results page and select your preferred search engine from the menu that follows.
Another handy feature on board is a search widget, which lets you perform private search queries from your home and lock screen. Of course, you will have to manually add the widget to one of these areas first. Given the app’s simple nature, it’s likely more users will use the widget and not the app’s interface itself.

Disconnect Search is currently free to use for everyone until the end of this month, but starting March, you will need to shell out on either a monthly or yearly subscription to continue using the service. Hit the link below to download it now and try it for free on your device.

  1. I drop a leave a response when I especially enjoy a article on a site or if I have something to
    valuable to contribute to the discussion.

    Usually it is triggered by the sincerness displayed
    in the post I looked at. And on this article "Disconnect Search Comes To Android; Allows Tracking-Free Google, Bing & Yahoo Queries".

    I was excited enough to create a comment ;) I actually do
    have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Could it be simply me or do some of the comments come across as if they are written by
    brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I'd like to
    follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you list every one of
    your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  5. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason
    seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don't
    know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
