About this app

What if your private life remained private? What if your searches didn't make you an advertising target? What if your movements were not used by third parties? Good news, it's possible: just download Qwant, the search engine that knows nothing about you and it changes everything!


A search engine that respects the privacy of its users
Launched in 2013, Qwant is a French search engine that guarantees its users respect for their privacy and the same search results for everyone. On mobile, the Qwant application (free) is also a browser that allows users to surf the web in complete confidentiality. Because we believe that your personal data is none of our business, Qwant never keeps it. They are not used or sold to third parties. That's why Qwant blocks advertising and tracking cookies. Ethics, relevance of searches, confidentiality: the Qwant application is both THE search engine and THE private web browser that gives back anonymity to its users.

A complete and easy-to-use mobile application
The Qwant application offers its users the same guarantees as on a computer. Even better: on smartphones, it goes beyond its function as a search engine and becomes a browser that, in addition to respecting privacy and providing instant access to relevant results, allows for fluid, fast and (still) tracking-free browsing. This quality of service also translates into search results that only reflect the keywords used, not your search history.


Discover it on our Qwant application


Qwant Search : the search engine that doesn't know anything about you, and that changes everything: zero tracking of your searches, zero personal data use, zero targeted advertising.

Qwant Maps : the map service that finds the right addresses and guides you around without tracking you.

I love the app concept, but very difficult to navigate back to previously viewed webpages, which is an important part of web navigation, especially reviewing a list of search results. Swiping left from right edge sometimes just closes the app, the "back" button at the bottom is often not even clickable. There are no navigation settings options, how do people even go back to previous pages in this thing?!

I got this Qwant app because of the privacy claim, the lack of ads, & the blocking of trackers, etc. However, since using it I've noticed that I have trouble opening many webpages and other apps as well. Also, whenever I open a webpage that asks me to upload something, the upload won't work, no matter how many times I reload. But if I try to do the same upload thru Chrome, it works perfectly. I don't want to be using apps that don't support privacy. But Qwant is really not working well at all.

Its a pretty awesome app and idea. My biggest issue after getting used to how it searches is the fact that my thumbnails on the pages I have open dont show up. So instead of being able to see what is on what page at a glance you have to click on each page to find what you are looking for each and every time.
