Qwant is a privacy-focused search engine that was developed in France. It aims to provide users with unbiased search results while respecting their privacy by not tracking their searches or creating user profiles.

Key features of Qwant:

  • No tracking: Qwant does not use cookies or collect personal data to track users’ search history or online behavior.
  • Neutral results: The search engine strives to provide impartial search results that are not influenced by users’ previous searches or personal data.
  • Transparency: Qwant is transparent about its ranking algorithms and does not prioritize its own services or partners in search results.
  • User control: Users can customize their search experience by filtering results by categories such as web, news, images, videos, and social media.
  • Eco-friendly: Qwant claims to be an eco-friendly search engine, using renewable energy to power its servers and offsetting its carbon footprint.
  • Multiple languages: Qwant is available in several languages, including English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

Qwant generates revenue through non-intrusive advertising and partnerships, rather than by selling user data to third parties.

The search engine has gained popularity among privacy-conscious users who want to search the web without being tracked or profiled. However, its market share remains relatively small compared to larger search engines like Google and Bing.
