AS YOU KNOW, the internet was abuzz with unknown hackers who were apparently successful in penetrating so-called secure sources of commerce, information and political security. A Private Search Engine was in dire need. Where’s the privacy on a world-wide party line anyways?
Cybersecurity was in the news at all levels of society as a solution to this. Data Integrity was also being addressed with Net Neutrality. Let us take for example the following infiltrations on corporate and national security. Recent activity included:
NY Times and London Observer Newspaper: 2018-03-17 Cambridge Analytics Suspended for Data Breach Harvesting on 50M End-users.
Wired Magazine ( 2017-12-07 ) : Iranian Hackers Have Been Infiltrating Critical Infrastructure Companies.
CNet Magazine ( 2017-12-04 ) : Password-Sharing Politicians Prompt Security Row in British House of Parliament.

USA Today ( 2017-11-28 ) : Sensitive Personal Information of 246,000 Department of Homeland Security Employees Found on Home Computer.

For myself, I felt I was too public with my everyday inquiries. Remember, on the telephone there was a private line and a party line? My web page provider – Wealthy Affiliate has an interesting feature that changes the admin’s password at the touch of a button; any and every time they access!!
When ever I went on line for information I first contacted a private search engine just to start the search. A different search engine protected my identity on line with better anonymity and a secure web connection. A Virtual Private Network provided some anonymity. Cookies were still used to speed up recall inquiries. The private chat search engine as such shared information confidentially; while still using the main search engines of Bing, Google and Yahoo. All minor search engines, as you know, are mirrors of the 3 majors.
The Private Search Engine provided the following;
- Private Searches
- Private Browsing
- Secure Information Drop
- The Standard of Trust on-line
- Demographic Data Collection
- Ad Costings
- Cell Phone Privacy
- Search History
- Data Hijack
- Privacy Protection
- Fake News Analytics
- Device Encryption
- Password Protection
- Privacy and Part Line Security
- Virtual Private Network
- Web Connection Security.
That’s why when ever I went on line for information I first contacted “DuckDuckGo” to start the search. My contacts in private demand it. The duck race is on to distract the common hacker with a quack !!
