I was checking the privacy.io website, and the first search engine they suggest is startpage.com. I’ve been using DDG and I’m quite happy with it. I don’t like, though, that they are hosted on the USA. However, I also don’t like Qwant that much, so startpage.com seems to be the ideal compromise.But, as far as I understand, startpage.com basically only offers a mask between me and google, right? How can this impact my privacy expectations while using startpage.com? What about DDG? Do they have their own “indexing”? (Pardon me if this is not the correct term, and feel free to explain in more detail how a search engine works, if you think that would help understanding the differences between these search engines).
