HideMySearches can help keep your search terms hidden from a number of third parties. No matter who is trying to see what you’ve looked up, our private search engine can help keep your searches confidential and hidden.
Hide Your Searches from Your Spouse
If you share your computer with your spouse and have embarrassing searches in your browsing history, you may want to hide those searches. These searches don’t have to be adult terms or embarrassing searches. If you’re planning a surprise vacation or shopping for a gift, you want to keep your ideas private.
Using HideMySearches lets you search the web without leaving your tracks behind for your significant other to find. HideMySearches’ feature that allows us to do this is our expiring encryption key on your search terms. After you’ve finished searching the encryption key expires so no one, not even you, can reaccess your search terms.
Hide Your Searches from Your Kids
If you’ve searched for something that you don’t want your kids to see on your computer and your kids may use your computer after you, you should keep those searches private!
The same technology that helps you keep your searches private from any user on your computer will help keep your past searches private from your kids. HideMySearches cannot prevent other websites you visit from showing up in your search history, so you should still take the necessary steps to hide your browsing history.

Hide Your Searches from Your Employer
If your employer has strict rules about what you can look at during work hours, you may want to keep your searches hidden from your employer.
Companies may monitor their employees’ internet activity by watching the traffic flowing through their network. HideMySearches uses SSL encryption so anyone monitoring your network activity will only be able to see that you have visited “HideMySearches” and not the search terms you’ve entered.
To hide the other websites you’ve visited, you may have to take other steps. We recommend using a VPN if you need to keep all of your browsing private, and not just your searches.
Different employers use different methods to keep tabs on their employees’ behavior on their computers, so you may have to take additional steps depending on the methods your company uses.
Hide Your Searches from Your ISP
Your internet service provider controls and monitors all the browsing activity that flows to and from your network. Keeping your searches private from your ISP sounds difficult, but all you have to do is use an encrypted search engine.
HideMySearches uses HTTPS and your search terms are sent through your network in encrypted form. This way your ISP will only see that you’re visiting HideMySearches.com and will have no way to tell what you’re searching for.
Hide Your Searches from Advertisers
Advertisers collect your search terms to get a better idea of what you’re interested in. Compiling all of your search histories over time gives them a pretty good idea of who you are and what sort of content you’re interested in.
Your search terms provide valuable information to advertisers because if you regularly search for certain topics, they can show you ads based on what you’re likely looking for.
If you’re tired of seeing ads related to websites or products you’ve just looked at, HideMySearches can help you. With Google, your searches determine which ads you see on most websites since Google operates one of the largest ad networks in the world. HideMySearches keeps your search terms encrypted, so the websites you visit from HideMySearches won’t be able to see the search terms you’ve entered to find their websites.
The ads you see on HideMySearches are based only on your search term and aren’t influenced by any of your past browsing or searching.
