What is BlindSearch™ and how do I get started?

How do I get started with BlindSearch™?

This is really simple - activate HackLock™ + BlindSearch™ bundle on top of your Surfshark subscription for only additional $0.99/mo on top of your Surfshark subscription, or get a Surfshark account and select privacy beyond VPN upon registration.

After that, simply open the s.surfshark.com page and dive into the ocean of safe and secure web search. Please note that you have to be logged in to your Surfshark account.


What is BlindSearch™?

BlindSearch™ provides safe and private search on the web.

What are the advantages of BlindSearch™?

The biggest advantage of BlindSearch™ is that it is completely ad-free. Positions of the results displayed in the BlindSearch™ are all organic yet relevant, which means that they will not change according to your search history or preferences.

The other equally important advantage is that we apply the same zero logs for this feature just as we do for all our products.

How does BlindSearch™ work?

BlindSearch™ uses the best search algorithms available. The search happens by using Bing API to get the best results. This principle is like the ones used by DuckDuckGo (Bing API) or StartPage (Google API).

Will BlindSearch™ only be available via website or your apps too?

The first version of BlindSearch™ can be reached using browsers via s.surfshark.com or simply by logging in to your Surfshark account and clicking BlindSearch™ on the dashboard. We are working on integrating the search into Surfshark applications and we’re hoping to release v2 in a few months.

Is it merely a private search engine or does it have additional features?

BlindSearch™ is bare-bones ad-free, zero-log private search service. It’s the real incognito mode for searches you don’t want anyone to see. 

If you have any further questions about the Blindsearch feature, feel free to contact our Customer Success Sharks anytime - they will help you out!
