Is you.com a private search engine?

My friend recently showed me a really cool search engine called You which deems to be really private. Has anyone used this before or know if it is actually private?

I don’t use you.com

You should read their privacy policy https://about.you.com/privacy-and-data-protection-at-you-com/

I don’t think there is a any reason not to believe they are being truthful, it’s a $20M startup and lying in the privacy policy is the easiest way to get sued for all the money.

That said, it’s a new company no one can know for sure if they are trustworthy, if you want to use them depends on your threat model.

Dunno, no way to say anything. They aren’t open source making it impossible to audit.
