Discussing the new feature, Startpage CEO, Robert Beens, said:
“With this innovation, we make it easier for consumers to keep personal data more private than ever before. Anonymous View is easy to use and unique for any search engine. Unlike the incognito mode in your browser, Anonymous View really protects you. It combines searching in privacy with viewing in privacy.”
In its help pages, Startpage points out that Anonymous View offers even more protection than VPN services because VPNs can’t mitigate against browser and device fingerprinting. Those who want to make certain their privacy remains intact while they’re browsing online could double up Anonymous View with a VPN or some other privacy service like Tor.
