Partnership between two leading global privacy brands adds Startpage as a private search option when Ivacy users make a virtual private network (VPN) connection
SINGAPORE, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Ivacy VPN, a leading VPN service provider, and Startpage, the world’s first and most private search engine, today announced a partnership that adds Startpage as a private search option when Ivacy users make a virtual private network (VPN) connection through the Ivacy app, giving them a truly holistic private online experience.
Ivacy VPN and Startpage, both founded over a decade ago, share a focused and deep commitment to online freedom and privacy. By providing VPN users the ability to search privately with Startpage, the two companies offer an end-to-end private online experience to users who are already deeply privacy conscious as well as those seeking the right tools to browse the internet more freely and securely.
“Startpage offers results which people have become more accustomed to i.e., Google,” said Alan Martin, PR Manager, Ivacy. “This new partnership has the potential to lead to an increased privacy and security for internet users who choose not to share their browsing habits with anyone.”
Neither Ivacy nor Startpage track users’ IP addresses, log browsing data or sell user data to third parties, ensuring users remain protected and anonymous while surfing the internet and giving them total control over their data. Ivacy VPN, an active and trusted member of VPN Trust Initiatives by I2C, offers 2,000+ servers in 100+ locations, allowing users to connect to as many VPN servers as they like to experience true internet freedom. This in turn grants them access to content that would otherwise be unavailable to them.
Startpage, founded in 2006 and headquartered in the Netherlands, is the world’s most private search engine, providing true privacy and Google search results without tracking. Startpage does not store or leak personal data such as IP addresses, and doesn’t use tracking cookies. Its partnership with Ivacy brings users a powerful one-two punch of a secure VPN and the most private search engine on the market.
“Ivacy has been a highly secure, private and trusted VPN for as long as Startpage has been around, and we share many of the same values around protecting online freedom and privacy,” said Robert E.G. Beens, co-founder and CEO of Startpage. “This partnership further extends how and where people can search the internet privately without being tracked or having their data logged and sold. Together, we’re excited to give users easier access to the types of online privacy tools they need to protect their data without sacrificing user experience or search results.”
