SearchLock extension is for Chrome and Firefox browsers who want to keep their web searches private. Everything you search online is anonymous & gets saved by search engines that you use for finding information. Therefore you cannot expect to be safe from hackers or any other interfering agents that are present online to fetch confidential information.
To avoid any such privacy attack, you can add SearchLock to your browser and be warned before coming across an unsafe link. Here are few benefits of SearchLock extension that help users keep their searches safe & private:
SearchLock stops Unsafe Searches
Most of search engines track & save your search history that is easy to connect with your name & personal details like email id. SearchLock stands between such information tracking system & you to protect your personal data. It keeps close watch on your search queries & keywords and notifies immediately when you are about to click an unsafe link. It takes you to a search result page that’s more secured and privacy friendly.
It avoids Keystroke Logging
The search queries used by you are sent to search engine and help in providing search suggestions. So, the keystrokes you used while searching on popular search engines like Google & yahoo can connect to you. This can be prevented only if you are using SearchLock as the extension does not send your queries to search engine.
Separates Searches from Online accounts
The search queries are connected to Gmail, Outlook Webmail and other popular services offered by respective search engines. When you make a search while logged into any of your accounts your search queries get coupled with your account and can prove harmful for privacy. SearchLock kills this connection & makes your search safe.
SearchLock does not keep any user information
You do not even have to fear of SearchLock server logs as the extension does not retain any user data. The websites with server logging may not just use tracking tool but can also record visit details (date, time, IP address etc.). SearchLock is free of any such hazards as it has disabled server logging feature.
SearchLock is a safety measure for those who rely on web searches quite a lot. It assures safety from governmental intrusion or hackers who seek opportunities to get access to your mails, social profiles and other important data.
Initiating unsafe searches can harm your privacy and prove disastrous if fetched by someone. So, without delaying install SearchLock to your browser and enjoy safe and uninterrupted web search.
