DuckDuckgo has an option to encrypt searches and it dos not share you search data with authorities. it has been involved in the open source Linux community for a long time. The search engine works quite well, too.
Privacy is important when using search engines as many of our searches are tracked and sold on. Ever noticed how accurate those sidebar adverts are to your likes and interests? That’s Google et al selling those searches on. DuckDuckGo doesn’t do this and therefore keeps your information safe and secure. This clever little page explains a bit more.
I use a VPN for my Internet connections, but Google can still see my searches and will share this date with law enforcement when they receive a John Doe subpoena.
