Make default search engine one that respects your privacy


Hi, I just installed brave on a new windows computer and I noticed that the default search engine is Google. Seeing how brave software claims to fight to users privacy wouldn’t it be better if the default search engine could be one that respects your privacy such as duckduckgo or startpage or searx?

Why is the default search engine in brave still google?
Isn't Brave meant to be more private? If so why use Google as the default search engine?

Hi @bigabur,

You can change it from about:preferences#search. :wink:

And open issue related to this:

I added your comment as +1 and you can track the progress there.

Thank you,
