New search engine protects you from NSA
Nice. I know what I’ll be downloading this afternoon.
Check it out:
Trust Google? The National Security Agency, which routinely collects its data, does.
After all, it’s one of the companies from which Washington apparently routinely pulls data about what Americans are reading, doing, seeing, researching, hunting and contemplating.
So an entrepreneur says he has started an alternative service, which offers encryption services to keep your details, well, your details. Out of Google’s files. And away from the NSA.
The website is called Zeekly.com and founder Jeffrey Sisk explains it doesn’t retain search history, and also runs on 2048-bit SSL encryption to keep private what Internet users don’t want public.
On his blog, he explains that there are a number of steps a consumer can take to make the options for the government to access personal information a lot harder.
One of those is an encrypted search function.
