Brilliant idea – glad to finally have on my phone. Brief pause at startup for the first time during a power cycle. The implementation seems more robust here than duckduckgo. One question: Would allowing results to open in browser of choice instead of in-app browser compromise the security? Thx! Here we provide StartPage Private Search V 1.9 for Android 2.1++ THE WORLD'S MOST PRIVATE WEB SEARCH APP
StartPage Search gives you convenient mobile access to StartPage.com, the world's most private search engine.
It lets you search for information privately and anonymously, from the convenience of your smartphone or other mobile device.
It's the perfect tool for iron-clad privacy protections, plus great search results.
COMPLETE SEARCH PRIVACY AND ANONYMITY
Other search engines capture your search terms and record the links you click on, then use tracking cookies to build a detailed profile of you and your interests.
At StartPage, our zero data-collection policy and full SSL encryption is your assurance that nobody's looking over your shoulder, no matter what you search for.
We don't collect any personal information on our users.
We don't store your IP address, we don't capture your location, and we don't record what you searched for.
In fact, we keep no records on you at all. Nada. Zilch. Zero.
OVERVIEW OF STARTPAGE SEARCH PRIVACY FEATURES
– All searches are encrypted using powerful SSL encryption. That means your service provider can't see what you search for—and neither can hackers.

– StartPage Search protects you from physical intrusion by deleting your searches and Web history after a set time delay, or the app is closed or suspended. With one tap of your Home button, your searches are gone.

PRIVATE PROXY SURFING FEATURE
When you need extra privacy, you'll love our Proxy. It works by copying the web page you want to visit onto our server, so you see it through us, not them. Because you never make contact with the third-party website, they can't infect you with cookies or malware, and they can't see your IP address or other information. They only see us, while you stay safe and invisible behind the scenes.
You can use the StartPage Proxy to access any website you find through a StartPage search. Simply click the "Proxy" link under the search result.

Not collecting or sharing any personal information. Figuring out who you are is virtually impossible since your IP address is not shared (and this is certified). Searches use Google. What more do you want? Highly recommended. Use it on my Android phone as well, stable and recordng nothing - not even showing anything when you use the recent tasks feauture on the phone.
