Yauba - Privacy Safe Search Engine!

Yauba is a brand new search engine from India. Yauba's search result quality is great and is comparable to that of Google. Yauba neatly organizes the search results and also shows text/image previews of websites.

One of the important features of Yauba is its stress of user's privacy and security. Yauba operates in complete incognito mode and does not collect any personal data. Their privacy policy goes like this!

Here's an excerpt from Yauba's site, which tells us about their privacy practices:
Most search engines try to gather and record as much information about their users as possible. They (or their parent companies) operate massive server farms with even more massive databases that secretly record your entire search history, your private contacts, the identity of your family and friends, your personal emails, your conversations and chats, your browsing habits, your physical location, details on the software you use on your computer, your IP address, and much much more. This is no exaggeration. Indeed, if you ever saw exactly how much most search engines actually know about your private details, you would be completely shocked.

At Yauba, we completely reject the view that search engines somehow need to keep mountains of data on their own users. Instead, we take the exact opposite approach. We do everything we can to protect the privacy of our users.

  • This is why we do not keep any record of any of your search terms, browsing habits or any other personally identifiable information.
  • This is why we automatically delete any and every piece of personally identifiable information from our servers on a continuous basis.
  • This is why we can have the shortest privacy policy (9 words) of any major Internet service in the world.
  • This is why you can visit almost every Internet site through the main Yauba service on a completely anonymous basis (with the only exception of file types that use other external third party software or plug-ins for downloading or playing).

Yauba is still in Beta/Late-Alpha state, and I think it is a very good service. Try Yauba at

Hello everyone!

We are still in our late alpha/early beta period with Yauba, and we would really appreciate your suggestions and feedback on how to make the service better.

Please feel free to email me directly at sam (|at|) yauba (|dot|) com. I will try to reply as promptly as I can!

Thank you so much!

You really need to use AAfter search for privacy because it does not use any Java script based ad system.
