Hi

You can add a custom search engine in desktops; I don’t think you can add one in Android.

Hello!

Actually I was able to add it when it was presearch.org. Due to a switch to mainnet the URL is changed to .com. The old URL no longer works

How? Did it show up in recently used?

Hi

I just followed what the_reckoner explained in his original post.

  1. I opened in the URL, presearch.com
  2. I clicked on the 3 vertical dots, opened “Settings”, then “search engines”
  3. You will find presearch.com in either standard tab and private tab, under recent visits.

Doesn’t work for me, but I’m on android 9. Ive tried https://engine.presearch.org/ and presearch.com
