A Proxy Service allows users to surf the web with complete privacy. The proxy lets users browse websites safely and anonymously, without passing on any private, personally identifiable information to the websites they view. StartPage supports SSL (HTTPS). The servers have been configured to handle HTTP requests over secure and encrypted Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connections. SSL is an encryption protocol that is available in almost all browsers. It establishes a secure connection between your browser and StartPage's servers. StartPage uses SSL to hide your search terms from anyone who might be monitoring traffic between your browser and StartPage's servers. You can activate SSL by using/adding an "s" to "http" in StartPage's address.
