The privacy-enhancing search engine and browser extension called SearchLock has achieved a milestone in its explosive growth, breaking into the Top 500 most-visited websites as of September, 2015. This achievement was recorded by the Amazon.com company Alexa, the world’s foremost website traffic analysis firm. CEO Aaron Lovelace of BeeStripe LLC, the Honolulu, Hawaii-based company that developed the unique product, explains the importance search privacy. “SearchLock is really resonating with Internet users,” he says. “Once people realize how much they are being tracked by search engines and other companies on the Web, they realize how important their privacy is.”
The extension is available for Chrome, Safari, and Firefox browsers, and is designed to enhance user privacy while using search providers like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. It works by detecting user searches that will be tracked, then redirecting user searches to its own encrypted, tracking-free search results page, thus preventing tracking from occurring and keeping user search information safe from being collected and analyzed.
With several recent data breaches covered in the media, user privacy and personal security are more important than ever. “Recent events have shown that Internet users need to protect their personal information carefully,” says Aaron. “The product has been proven to be a valuable tool for people to use in securing their own privacy effectively. The fact that the website has been receiving so much traffic shows that people are ready to take privacy into their own hands.”
In addition to quick company growth, the developers behind the security extension are also seeing great responses from users. “Of course, the company is proud of its accomplishments,” Aaron added. “Seeing great user reviews on the Chrome Webstore store is telltale of the effectiveness and that what was created does what it was designed to do, and Internet users are thankful for that.”
